Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

For such a lightweight chair, the Hi-Fortune is comfortable. The padded seat and backrest are made of durable yet comfortable materials that are easy to clean. The padded armrests also give users a place to rest their arms.
An ergonomic manual wheelchair weighing just 21 pounds, this wheelchair uses the lightest yet strongest materials – magnesium alloy, which is stronger than your typical aluminum wheelchair. With a foldable and compact frame, any family member or caregiver can lift and store it with a convenient bag with hand strap.
- Heavy
The main bonus here are both a front and rear hand brake, so that whether it is being operator by the user or a helper, slowing and locking the chair in place is a breeze.
Perfect for those suffering from a lower back injury. The sleek design and lightweight material make it easy to propel for long hours. The frame of the chair is made from strong, ultra-lightweight magnesium alloy that provides sufficient support.
Despite being ultra-lightweight, I am still impressed with this magnesium alloy material because it is totally strong and sturdy. It is even long-lasting because it is not prone to deformation.
There are no tools required for assembly; just clip and unfold. When folded, the chair folds to approximately the same size as a 29-inch suitcase and can fit in the travel bag provided.

What reviewers didn't like

Arms are not removable, but do flip back. Not very many verified purchases as compared to other wheelchairs.

The weight capacity is very low.
The plastic C clamps in the footrests are not that durable.
