The Medline Wheelchair does it's job well - it's job is to provide an inexpensive wheelchair. It comes essentially assembled and it was easy to complete the job. It is light, easy to fold up and put in a car trunk. The legs swing away.
The cons are: the front wheels are small and do not negotiate bumps nearly as well as larger, more expensive chairs. (They will simply stop, potentially dumping the occupant out!) Once you learn this (sometimes the hard way), you can either tilt the front wheels over bumps or back over them.
Also, though the legs will tilt, they do not raise up. So if you require one leg to be elevated, you will need to puchase a more expensive chair.
Overall, this is a fine value for what it is - a light, well-made chair with no fancy extras, and a chair not designed to travel over uneven surfaces.
