Advice & Tips: i just received this chair a month ago as a gift from my louisiana chapter! the people that take the time to sit and talk with us at the support groups are wonderful, a blessing because we could not afford a wheelchair and we don't have good insurance. i have been using a loaner from the mda loan closet for two years and they are really nice people. this chair is awesome. it has the power features like tilt, recline, vent tray and my favorite is the seat lift. the model I have is the c300. it takes some getting use to though because of the chair being long with the tray in back.
