    Karman 24 lbs LT-980 Ultra Lightweight Wheelchair more than met my needs! I had been searching for a light weight Wheelchair that was small, light, and had a fold-down chair back like some travel wheelchairs. I was amazingly surprised when I saw this wheelchair. It had all of the features I wanted, and was very light and so easy to lift; just as described and demonstrated online. I use regular vehicles, not paratransit, for transportation, and sometimes the drivers are reluctant to take me when they see a regular sized wheelchair. Some have complained about the weight and not being physically able to lift the wheelchair. But those drivers were small in number. There were more drivers who were willing to take me than not. Therefore, human kindness and goodness still prevailed, even in today’s world.The first time I used the Karman Wheelchair, the driver was quite surprised that it was so light and compact; and did not see the need to fold down the back, even though I proudly demonstrated the process. Since it is quite smaller than a regular sized wheelchair, it takes up less space in a vehicle and the environment in general.The only problem I found was stiffness when propelling and maneuvering it. I like to wheelchair dance and found it difficult to do so, due to the lack of agility in movement. It was recommended that I try using WD-40 oil to allow more movement in the wheels. I will purchase it to determine if it helps.Otherwise, I am so very, very happy with the Karan Wheelchair and the fact that it solved my transportation problem. I will gladly purchase another Karman 24 lbs LT-980 Ultra Lightweight Wheelchair when needed.
