Best decision we could have made for my mother-in-law!!!

My husband and I bought this for his mother. She was slipping out of her basic wheelchair. So my husband decided to purchase this chair for his mother. We looked at a lot of wheelchairs online, and ultimately decided to go with Karma. What a great decision. She suffers from PSP, and degenerative brain disease, and is unable to get around by herself in her old chair. Not anymore!!! This chair is small enough, because she is only 5ft. tall, that she is able to touch the ground and move around the house with minimal assistance. This chair is lightweight enough that my father-in-law is able to lift it in the back of his smaller SUV. What a wonderful design, the comfort of the seat is great for her that she started to sit in her chair a big part of the day. She loves her chair, and it is even small enough to get into a standard sized door. So when giving a shower, I am able to get her into the bathroom, right to the side of the shower. The wheel handles are able to come off as well, unless you need to use them to get around, even with them on, you are able to get in a regular sized door.

Very pleased with this comfy, lightweight chair

After extensive research, I ordered this chair and am very glad that I did. It is lightweight, easy to fold, comfortable, and easy to maneuver. It's one of the only wheelchairs that was self-propelling and had companion handbrakes which was important for me and my husband. Although the armrests don't raise, it is easy to transfer in and out of the chair due to the curve of the metal tubing. As others have mentioned, this is not a chair for a tall person; I'm 5'1" and the footrests are a good fit for me. I don't have any difficulties reaching or maneuvering the 20" wheels--and I love the ergonomic handrims. Very easy to fit thru doorways and around tight corners. Be sure to order the anti-tippers. Wish elevating leg rests were available for this chair.

BEST wheelchair out there ! ! ! My 95 year old blind mama loves it!

My 95 year old blind mama LOVES her new wheelchair I got for her! This is expensive but I wanted to get her the wheelchair with the highest rating by people who bought one and this was the one. The wheels turn so easily it is like they are on ball bearings. Because the overall size of the chair is smaller, it fits into my wheelchair accessible van much easier than the bigger "loaner" chair she had that was probably made for a man. Mom is a size 12 with normal size hips and I ordered the 18 inch wide chair for her and was glad I did. I think the 16 inch wide would be for a teenager or very small person. This chair fits through doors that the bigger chair couldn't go through so that's another plus. It is lower than the transport chair she had and I wish it was a few inches higher but the positives far outweigh the negatives. Mom says she is okay with that. I wish it had a "footpad" down near the wheels where I could push to make the two small front wheels raise up and go over a door threshold. The metal bar that is there is so close to the spokes that you get your shoes into the spokes if you try to us that to raise the front. I am trying going through doors backwards so the big wheels roll over first and don't get hung up on the threshold. The chair is VERY lightweight and easy to store. The footrests took a little futzing around with to see how them went on (no instructions included) but we got them figured out. Nice to have hand brakes for the "driver" if needed. Overall just a VERY nice wheelchair, mama LOVES it, and we are HAPPY ! ! !
