After having checked out wheelchairs in the local pharmacy stores and medical supplies and experiencing sticker shock for prices that started out at $900, I decided to look on Wal-Mart's on-line site. I was really surprised at the much lower cost of their chairs and, also, worried that they may be "cheap". Well I read through the numerous reviews and found for the most part people were happy with the item. I took a chance and ordered this model. Even though I am not an expert on wheelchair construction I do find this to be a very sturdy solidly built wheelchair. The pocket on the back is a plus. I purchased the 20" so there would be a little extra wiggle room for my husband and he can add a pillow or blanket, or tuck a book next to him. The wheels are not slippery on this particular model and it is light enough for me to lift into the SUV. Setting it up was a whiz. It comes completely assembled. Just take it out of the box, remove the wrappings and put on the removable foot pedals. Plus, watch for the little tightening tool that comes with it just in case a bolt is loose. Great chair, small expense.
