Looking for a Super Light weight model for my 10 year old who is only 70 lbs. can you recommend a model 20 lbs or less that will fit him well? Need a model that will be light enough to put in and out of our car and travel with for my 75 yr old mother.

Deluxe Fly-Weight Aluminum Transport Chair is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Brakes stink I bought this for Mom who is about 100lbs. The brakes are awful. I adjust them and tighten almost daily. They stink. The aids at her assisted living facility say they do not have this brake problem with any other transport chairs there. Otherwise it is very attractive and easy to lift.
