Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have a great deal of experience in using and having to maintain a wheelchair. My mother has had the same one for over 10 years and it was time to get a model which was lighter and less cumbersome for both her and myself.
I do like the ease and light weight to this wheelchair. It makes it easy to lift and store into an SUV or car. The wheels, the back and seat materials are of good quality. Unfortunately, it is a "basic" of the line, and that means very little adaptability to accessories within the K4 Excel line of wheelchairs. I purchased a set of adjustable side arms which are not interchangeable with the "basic" as they are with the other models of the K4 Excel line, even though Medline does not offer this as a disclaimer in their own product description.
The other detriment was the lack of quality assurance of the final product: There was one seat fastener which was attached to the seat with a holding washer reversed from what it should have...
It worked well, and was better than what the nursing place had for my wife. She passed away soon after getting it so I abandoned it there. For the price it's worth it.
