Characteristics and Features of Giantex 24” Lightweight Foldable Folding Wheelchair
Folding wheelchair like this one from Giantex, the 24” lightweight model, presents more flexibility compared to standard stiff chairs. The model has an edge when riders move towards moderately uneven ground as the folding frame of the chair will flex and bend depending on the ground surface.
Folding chairs offer plenty of benefits too they can be collapsed, folded and stored without taking away components, and it helps users save space. The flexibility that it imparts allows for better stability when traversing rougher ground.

Q & A
Q: I need to roll someone up and down a steep grassy hill on a regular basis. Would this chair do the trick?
A: That depends on the patient’s weight, his/hers ability to assist by turning the hand rim, and your own strength.
Q: How do you get the ugly plastic protection cover off behind the wheels ????
A: I am not sure, I bought the chair for a relative who lives in Florida. I live in California.
If you’re referring to the cover on frame above wheels, I just left it on. Doesn’t bother me a bit. Just makes it look more distinct
Q: Does the chair come fully assembled?
A: Seems pretty nice so far. My grandmother likes it
Q: Will the wheelchair hand rims come off very easy so I could make it narrower?
A: Yes hand rims comes off easily and does not stay tight and also the foot rest things are very loose too moving down n backward all the time
I ordered this 24 inch wheelchair for my aunt who is battling stage 4 lung cancer and stage 4 breast cancer. We are having a hard time getting her to and from the bathroom because she wants nothing to do with the portable bathroom chair. We were using a walker with a chair that is built in but you can imagine how well this didn’t work out.
I bought this chair for a spare. This is a lite duty chair. narrow tires. it would soon twist out of shape, under heavy use. Good for lite, normal wear indoors or on solid surfaces outdoors. For a special occasion where you need a good looking chair, and not your everyday chair. Pushing and turning under strain, will will soon wear the frame of it out. Small, very small wheel bearings. Looks really good, nice looking spoke wheels, chrome looking. Arms don’t adjust. Just a basic, low cost wheelchair.
Very lite, easy to handle. Folds for transporting. Well worth 90 dollars, It comes assembled. I had no problem, with loose bolts. Spokes were tight. NO wheelie-bars. Has rubber/plastic covers on the ends where the wheelie-bars would go, but no holes for the spring-loaded wheelie-bar to click into. Needs a cushion, like most wheelchairs. I have long arms, easy to operate. Balance is normal. Steep inclines, let someone push you. Good investment for a low cost, light duty wheelchair. REMEMBER, lite duty… Thanks!
The arms are too high compared to the seat. Being a short person, I am unable to push it myself because of this fact.
