Q & A

QWhat is the seat depth?

AThe depth of the bottom cloth is 16 inches, but since there is a 1 inch gap between back and bottom in middle, perhaps depth is 17 inches.

Q: how heavy is the chair alone?

AThe description says 26lbs. I didn’t actually weigh it myself though.

QI’m a hefty guy (around250) will i fit comfortably in this chair?

AYup, especially the 19″ seat as opposed to the 17″, this should be a comfortable chair for you. My sister is 5’10 and over 250, just to test out the chair that we bought for our grandma, she sat in it for a bit and was saying how comfy it was.

A welcome relief

We purchased the Transport Wheelchair for our mother age 87 because she has trouble with shortness of breath and cannot walk short distances without much labor. We bought the chair without any prior experience with it, only having viewed it online. We are most pleased with the relief it has brought to our mother.

What DRIVES my Mom

So my Mom was visiting us here in Chicago. She had done knee surgery and though can’t be called disabled remotely- she can’t walk for long period of time. So we purchased it primarily to use it for navigating museums, parks etc. But boy, what didn’t we use it for? It is so easy to carry, so easy to transport and so easy to fold/unfold- we used it at

3)rough roads in national parks
6)wherever we CAN.

This would also speed up your journey as the disabled person would not need to make any effort to move.

Can’t do without this transport chair!

Although we have both a powerchair and a full-size wheelchair, neither would fit through our bathroom doors. This transport chair is perfect for getting through narrow doorways and navigating sharp turns in hallways.

Faulty wheelchair – wheel broke within the first week

At first glace the wheelchair seems great. It folds up nice and small, not too heavy, seems comfortable enough.

Smooth and not that expensive

I got this for my wife, who just broke her legs as an accident, and thanks for this wheel chair, it really helpful. now she is fine and this one is still strong
The wheels are smooth and the material can really last quite a while, at least more than half a year.
