I got this for my husband while he is recuperating with a broken ankle. He's not very stable on crutches and we like to go to the movies, out to dinner, etc. and this makes it really easy for me to push him around. This chair is good for people on the not-too-large size - he's about 5'11, 190lbs and it is fine but I think someone over 225lbs would have a tight squeeze on the seat. Note that it has small wheels, not big wheels like a regular wheelchair, so it takes a little bit of muscle to move someone around, especially up a ramp - the seated person can't help by pushing the wheels. It's not a heavy duty chair - when crossing bumps in a floor (carpet edges and such), try to hit them at a perpendicular angle as I don't think the chair is up for much twisting action. The chair is really lightweight and folds up pretty well so it's really easy to put in a hatchback. He also uses it to roll around in the house on a limited basis because it's pretty narrow and maneuverable. Given the price of a rental wheelchair, this is a super bargain.
