Fly-Lite Aluminum Transport Chair is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has been wonderful and easy This walker was very helpful to my grandmother as her younger friends in their 70's and 80's could lift it when driving her. It is also stylish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built. light, very maneuverable Bought for my wife, she had a broken foot, needed a narrow chair to get through bath door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed a lightweight chair with a width of no more than 23 inches and happy I found this one-- I can maneuver around myself and folds easily to put in the car. You won't be disappointed with this chair and did I mention how comfortable it is, thought I might need to order a chair pad with this one so thin but no it holds me very well at 175 lbs

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too low This chair is lower than a standard transport chair, so there is farther to stand or be lifted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TRANSPORT CHAIR 90 YEAR OLD IN-LAW NEEDED SOMETHING PORTABLE FOR VACATION TRIP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this chair We have been using ours for 10 years. It goes everywhere we take my now 99 year old mother. It's light-weight and so easy to use. I can lift it with one hand easily. Folds away nicely into a small space. Looks like a beach chair, not a depresssing wheelchair. Love it. I'm only here because after 10 years the arm handle broke off and I need that part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Transport Chair with Two Negatives My wife has used one of these since January 2015, when a serious leg injury created the need for something more than a walker when she was not at home. We examined a variety of models from several manufacturers at a local and reputable seller of medical equipment, deciding on this one because of its sturdiness, lightness, ease of transportation, and apparent durability. Durability cannot be assessed until later, of course. Now it is later, nearly four years so. The chair has held up well under daily and careful use. (Careful use is vital, given that this device clearly is not designed for rough treatment.) The backrest has faded somewhat but is still quite functional, and the right rear wheel has begun to split and disintegrate under the split. And now, the negatives: 1. First, the less serious deficiency. The brakes become increasingly ineffective at holding the chair immobile as the tires on the back wheels gradually wear and decrease the diameter. There is no way described in the instructions to adjust the brakes to account for this, nor could I see any way to do it upon careful examination. This is an unfortunate deficiency that should be corrected. 2. This brings up the truly significant negative about this chair: The cost of replacement parts. In excess of $30 for one wheel is, frankly, a misery and is possible only because wheels are specific to this company's chairs. Other companies do about the same, however, so this apparently is an industry outrage. When I found this out, I began looking online for these chairs and was gratified to see that one huge and well known source of virtually everything sells these chairs for $135.19 + free shipping. I ordered two days ago; it just arrived today (I paid over $175 four years ago at the local medical supplies place). Foolish? Well, consider that both rear wheels were well worn, so both needed replacement even if the left one had not split. That would have been $62, the best price I could find (the difference between best and worse prices was minuscule). The front wheels would have needed replacement soon, another big expense. For a little more than twice the cost of those rear wheels, we got a new chair. But with a new chair, I now have the luxury of taking the old rear wheels and seeing how I can re-clad them with tires or, alternatively, how I can adapt an off-the-shelf 8-inch wheel with bearings to the purpose. $30 a wheel is a decent enough incentive.
