Priced at $318, the price is certainly well worth it when you look at the features it comes with. The first by default is that the seat width is 18 inches, one of the most popular sized seats for wheelchairs.
Another important feature to keep in mind is that its light. Not as light as the LT-1000 or LT-2000, but still light for its category. Weighing in at 24 pounds without the footrests, this wheelchair is quality if it can handle upwards of 250 pounds like the other LT series.
Like the other LT series and Karman wheelchairs, this wheelchair also provides comfort. Much like the LT-2000, this wheelchair to comes with armrests with a wide cushioned arm pad on each one. Furthermore, there are the footrests that can be swung away. Paired up with adjustable footplates and heel hoops, this can ensure your feet can be in a relaxed position.
The wheelchair is also quite portable. The wheelchair can fold from the backrest and seat, making it easy to move around. But even moving around in it is good thanks to the front casters being Polyurethane solid which are fat-free and are high tread wheels too. The back wheels are the same material too.
There is some customization in the form of frame color options as well. Your choice of Silver, Black, or Merlot Mica.
The overall dimensions of the wheelchair are much like the other LT series. There’s no customization for it, but that still doesn’t take away what this wheelchair is capable of.
