Features of the Karman LT-980 Ultralight Wheelchair
Adjustability & Comfort
There’s not much to say on this front, because aside from the color (you can order the chair in either black, silver, or burgundy), all of its primary features are set. They are what they are, and the chair offers only limited adjustments, so you’ll want to pay close attention to the specs to make sure you’ll fit comfortably into it.
Regarding adjustability, about the only thing on offer here is the fact that you can adjust the height of the footrests. However, even at maximum extension, if you’re much over six feet tall, you’ll likely struggle to fit comfortably into it. Also note that if you want the Karman Ultra-Lightweight LT-980 Wheelchair in color other than black, you can in red and silver. While not really an “adjustability option,” it’s worth mentioning here that the braking mechanism is very conveniently located for the person sitting in the chair since it’s on the left-hand side and within easy reach. Just pull up on the lever to lock the wheels in place, and you’re all set. The LT-980 had incorporates handbrakes at the wheel of the chair so that the user could activate them if needed.
Where comfort is concerned, we said at the start that this should be considered a light-to-moderate-duty chair. It’s outright comfortable, but it take a price point to double at the least to find a more comfortable model out there. It’s also a simple matter to fix, as an extra cushion for the seat or seat back is a trivial expense. But even then, if you spend more than 4-5 hours a day in the chair, it’s likely to get increasingly uncomfortable.

The LT-990 was designed out of the need for an ultra lightweight wheelchair with the ability to fold, and stow with the smallest footprint possible. Learning from our consumer feedback and requests, we added quick release rear wheels and quick release front casters to an already popular and ultra lightweight frame, which allows users to fold the chair to a folded dimension of 23x13x22 inches, and a frame weight of 16 lbs.
Due to our commitment to continuous improvements, Karman Healthcare reserves the right to change specifications and design without notice. Further, not all features and options offered are compatible with all configurations of the wheelchair. Also available with Elevating Legrests as an add on (LT-990-COLOR-E)
Disclaimer: LT-990 standard color is a black frame and/or a combination of black and silver accents with black upholstery.
