The item arrived exactly as described, which is a lightweight, 7kg folding transit chair which would fit in most car boots. It's very sturdy, surprisingly so for the weight, and would be suitable for regular as well as occasional use.

The chair can be set up and folded again within minutes- even my weak and painful hands were able to lift the chair of the packing box, unfold it and set it up with little discomfort.

It's comfortable to sit in. It has a slightly padded seat although those with back issues may wish to use a little extra padding for the back. The footrests aren't adjustable in length, but have four different angle settings, with each footrest adjustable individually. There is a pocket at the back for small items. I would imagine it to be sturdy enough to cope with the bumpiest, roughest pavement as well as grass, carpet and anything else you could throw in its way.

There are lockable handbrakes for the person pushing you, but if you're not that trusting you can put your own brakes on!

This item is perfect for someone like me who has rheumatoid arthritis in most joints, or any kind of mobility issue where occasional to regular wheelchair use is now needed. I would use this for long shopping trips, visits to stately homes and anything else where a lot of walking or standing is needed.

AMW1863 Lightweight Folding Transit WheelchairReviews are very subjective and I must confess that I read them with a "grain of salt".This wheelchair is great value for your money, well made and sturdy with all the extras you will need. It is very easy to push around and comfortable to sit in.
I can recommend it on all counts. Two days after ordering from Amazon it was delivered and it was in use the same afternoon by a delighted old boy of 84 years.

Very good product, folds up small for boot & lightweight. Reasonably comfortable ride & easy to push, steer & brake. Very good value for money.

The wheelchair arrived almost by return of post, despite standard delivery being order.

It is light and easy to assemble, but suffers from some difficulties going up kerbs and over uneven surfaces. It is OK on shop floors and pavements. Adjustment of footrests requires more explanantion.

Brilliant bit of kit. bought for the wife, as she has poor knees, and we needed something to get her about the places she loves. Comfortable, quite light, seconds to assemble, (just unfolds)very sturdy!, taken it over grass, gravel,stones, comes with its very own small tool kit. will fit into small cars, we found it easy to place folded in back seat.

Good product. Ideal for my wife to take her father out in, and about half the weight of his previous chair.

Easy to lift in and out of the car boot. Arrived quickly as well.

Great purchase and price but there are no instructions (I know that sound crackers but feel necessary). Also a couple of bits we didn't know what to do with !
