This wheelchair is absolutely horrible and unsafe. Have a look at this video and then please go to the complete series of reports about the Alex Wheelchair by Handicare.
Please see this related post.
Tires go bald after only approximately 24 hours of driving because of the terrible suspension and makes this chair deadly to drive..
The suspension has many other serious control problems. The tires do not stay vertical when the suspension moves up and down causing the tires to quickly wear out (unevenly) and to loose traction and steering control..
Constantly having bald tires is extremely dangerous especially where I live in hilly downtown Halifax..

Take notice that this place is nothing like is depicted on their website.. There is not even enough room for a wheelchair to move around in the place…
Candid conversation with Hank of Home Safe Living Oct 6 2014 Wheelchair Report
Sparta Cats1 says,
No automatic doors at a wheel chair place that’s pathetic. Did they finally fix your chair?
Wheelchair RightsReports says,
No…. I got used tires and went around town and kept asking auto shops to install them.. I found a place to do it..after many tries. But the worse part is that i can not get any wheelchair place to service my chair.. winter is fast approaching so I will rarely be going out.. My chair will stay the same until spring time since I wont be going out.
