The Pros and Cons of the Chair

Pros:

  • The wheelchair armrests are very easy to adjust.
  • A very comfortable chair off road and on road, when you get to know how to lift the front wheels you can move smoothly on soft ground.
  • Rugged and well built for durability and strength.
  • Excellent on rough terrains with the frog front wheels feature.
  • A great light weight frame that is strong and durable.
  • Easy to control and propel, if property set it turns out on a dime with 9 degrees of camber.
  • It can be easily folded and fits in a car trunk perfectly.

Cons:

  • It can be tippy on sidewalks when being pushed.
  • The push pull brakes need constant tightening

It is clear that the pros of the TRA outweigh the cons. The push and pull brakes that require constant tightening can be easily tightened even with bare hands since they come with a protective rubber. The tippy feel on being pushed is caused but the weight that tends to be focused to the front., but with practice you won’t need someone to push you since you will be able to lift the front wheels comfortably and enjoy a smooth ride.
