BREYDON’s wheelchair trials: Karma Eagle
Saturday 27 March 2021.
Updated 03 August 2021.
Collapsible (scissor fold), box‐frame chair.
Emergency hire to get in and out of toilet. Poorly balanced. Blousy castors. Came with non‐standard footplates fitted (presumably for people with much less leg than me), which forced my knees ridiculously high, increasing this chair’s precariousness and causing excruciating pressure.
