This chair is very well built yet also is very light.
Vanessa Z. Mills
The thing is its not too bright because the lines are thin and looking closely you see green, blue, black, red and a thin yellow line- I love it.
Karen
I can easily fold, and lift it in and out of the trunk of the car.

Color Name: Black/Tan
As a Friday Sale offering, with free super saver shipping, this is a five star value.

Also known as a "companion chair", this lightweight rolling chair is especially invaluable for a caregiver who takes a family member to medical-related appointments. It isn't meant for everyday use around the house, or for day-long sitting, but rather for limited transport from a vehicle to a medical appointment, PT, or the hairdresser/barber shop, etc.

The comfort level is reasonable and the convenience level is unmatched. (A gel seat cushion might help, and can be purchased separately.) No transport chair will substitute for a wheelchair; someone else needs to push this chair.

IMPORTANT:

1. The weight limit for this item is 300 lbs. Don't order it unless you have verified that the person for whom it is intended weighs in at no more than that.

2. Even a person weighing 200 pounds will be tricky to transport, if you must go up ramps, so give some thought to your own physical limits. If you are up in years or have heart problems or a chronic condition yourself, you may need additional help.

3. You need to be able to fold and lift twenty awkward pounds in and out of a vehicle.

4. The back handles do fold, but that maneuver can be tricky. Unless you are mechanically inclined, ask someone for help in the minimal assembly, and then practice folding it until it feels easy to do!

5. Make sure your vehicle has adequate room in the trunk to transport this.

6. If not, or unless you have a station wagon or SUV, you may need to place this (folded) upright in the back seat foot area, right behind the front seatbacks. That means you may have little or no room for additional passengers.

Color Name: BlueSize Name: 17 inches
This chair is very well built yet also is very light. I can easily lift it into the trunk of my car. The standard wheelchair that my mom used to use was always very difficult for me to lift.

The chair is also compact when open which makes for much easier maneuvering in public areas. The pocket on the back of the seat is convenient for putting my mom's parking pass in. It also velcros closed so I don't have to worry about anything falling out.

When folded, the chair is compact. You have the option of folding the feet into the sides and folding the handles down which makes it even tinier. Easy to store in my mother's little closet.

The brakes are a little inconvenient to use as you have to bend all the way down. Also, one of the brakes wasn't tightened as much as it could be. The tools they included with the chair don't fit the brakes' bolts so I have to use an allen wrench from my own toolset.

Overall, though, an excellent chair at an excellent price.

Color Name: Black/GreenSize Name: 17" Seat
I bought this item because my senior Mom has a bad knee and ankle and an arthritic spine. She is mobile, but cannot walk long distances. We took a trip to Las Vegas in April 2007 and this Drive transport chair make that trip possible for her!! We easily went through the airport, gate checked it at the airplane enterance, and it was brought right up when we landed. Manuvered over all types of flooring in the Las Vegas casinos and performed like a champ on the streets - smooth and easy to push (and very comfortable for Mom!). Folds up in a snap and is light when putting in the trunk. We were asked by many where we got it - Amazon is hands-down the best priced and the free shipping is great! I did a lot of research! We bought a bag for ours to make it easier for the airline people to carry and not lose pieces (foot rest pieces can come off only when moving the empty chair, and can be lost if separated from the chair by handlers). The bag is good for storing the chair at home when not in use, too. WE LOVED IT - easily handled a 260 lb. person - very sturdy and well made!

Color Name: SilverSize Name: 17" Seat Verified Purchase
I actually bought this wheelchair and brought it over with me to Hong Kong for my 90-year-old mother. It is extremely light and well made. It is the second lightest transporter wheelchair out there. It's so easy to collapse and open. I particularly liked that fact that it is 17" wide rather than the standard 19". My mother is very thin so this was fine. I just thought it's hard enough to get through doorways as it is, the narrower (if the person can fit in it) the better. DO take that into consideration! The only other transporter that is lighter than this one is made from Medline, called the featherlite transporter (or something like that) at under 15lbs...but it is 19" wide. This wheelchair is 19 lbs and it still felt really light to me. I'm only 5'3" tall, and I had no trouble pushing my mom around.

I bought this chair along with a cushion. DO get a cushion because transporter chairs don't have much support for the tushie. The other thing to be aware of are the foot rest. They do flop around once you fold up the chair. I recommend getting a small zippered nylon tote bag that is small enough to hold the foot rest and store in the back chair's pocket when not in use. The foot rests are very easy to remove. But they can fall out when not in use. So get a small carrying bag for them.

The nylon fabric is sturdy and well-made. The only thing that I wished it had was a lock latch for the foot rest when not in use, and maybe a carrying bag to stuff it in for transport...but that's pretty minor.
