“This chair is great because the front wheels don’t touch the ground. They’re connected to the center wheel which drives the wheelchair. If I can’t make it up something, the front wheels will gain traction and pull the chair up with it. So it’s much easier to go up things like curbs with this wheelchair compared to any of my other wheelchairs.”
Lee says the stability and balance of the LEVO C3 is also far superior to other wheelchairs which are often front-heavy. “When you’re going downhill it can be dangerous but I don’t have any concerns about doing that in this chair.”
Throughout the day, Lee has the ability to stand upright in his chair whenever he wishes – something that’s particularly useful when working at his computer or lifting weights in his home gym.
“With the standing chair you can change the angle of your hip which was game-changing for me because I was starting to develop kyphosis in my back which makes me hunched. So with the ability to be upright more, I dodged having to get surgery. My surgeon told me I was probably going to need some rods down my back. I thought ‘I’m not getting that’ and having a chair like this has really saved my back.”
Lee now suffers less lower back pain as a result and is so thrilled with the LEVO C3 that he has a new one on order. “I’d say these chairs are good for everyone. If you’re looking for a good chair that can give you great balance, this is the best one I’ve found.”
