Strengths:Small turning radius for indoors and lets you get around in smaller places. Compact size for its capability. The back of the seat folds forward. Armrests swing up to let you get closer to a table. It has carried me well for over 5 years. I have traveled on several airlines with success. It is a basic power chair of a small size. The VSI controller can be set up for good control and easy operation. Better than many I tried. It travels over rough terrain or loose gravel quite well.
It fell 18" off the van lift onto its back (please don't ask). A helpful young man set it back on its wheels and it drives like nothing happened. A+ for sturdy.
Weaknesses:This chair has no cushioning in its suspension and you feel every bump. I did not know this until I got a more sophisticated chair. I seemed to go through a lot of batteries even with regular charging. My first chair so I do not have a good basis of comparison. I drove it everywhere and just may have worn the batteries out. After a couple of years I did have charging problems which were difficult to diagnose. All the components of the electrical system were replaced to fix the problem. Parts were replaced one at a time because electronic failures can be hard to diagnose. This must have been expensive but I don't know (it is great to have good DME insurance coverage).
The seat posts are a little wobbly and probably contribute to the rough ride.
Comments:I loved this chair. It is not fast but very very maneuverable. After one of the flights the airline brought the chair to the plane. I transferred in and started up the gangway. At the first transitions ramp the seat pitched backwards sliding me to the ground. The ground crew had taken the seat off to put it in the plane. They did not get the seat locked into the brackets when they put it back on. I was OK and the anxious crew took a while to get the seat on correctly. I learned to check the chair after a flight. Most airlines fold the seat and load the whole chair. The M11 is out of production:( I have a new chair that is not as lovable but gives a faster, smoother ride.

diane from monrovia CA USA submitted this review on September 21st 2008 at 02:59 PM. diane is an end user who has over five years of experience with the product.
Strengths:Occasionally Aspire will get me where I need to go without much trouble. THEN there are MANY MANY times it refuses to budge--batteries are only a few months old--it takes me almost 1 hour with help ob business persons and neighbors, most of the firemen. They know me so well, they toot and wave when they see me/ I AM NOT THEIR PRIORITY! I hate your machine! ABSOLUTELY~

Mateel from Vallejo CA USA submitted this review on December 4th 2005 at 11:15 AM. Mateel is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
Strengths:Turns on a dime--easy to get into elevators and restaurants, even crowded bookstores. No problem controlling it when backing up. The height adjustments are easy to make with coterpins for the seat, and push-buttons for the armrests. Control can go either left or right, and has a nice range of speeds. Easy control panel. Easy to tie down in Paratransit using the four upright tubes of frame under seat. The whole seat snaps off to transport in two pieces if you're not riding. The ability to change colors (of the shroud covering the lower mechanisms) is fun, just velcroed on, and they do seem to stay put which I was initially worried about. The four-wheel independent suspension gives this chair a nice smooth ride.
Weaknesses:Since it turns so easily, I am always banging the armrests or the footplate. Also, it has only a slim pocket behind the seat, so if I sling a backpack (on the supports of the headrest) it is very topheavy,threatening to tip if I go up too steep an incline, and also I bang this on walls when turning. Speaking of the headrest, I can't imagine what shape person the back/head cushions were built for. I don't even come close to being able to touch my head to the headrest even though I've got good posture, and were it not the only place to hook bags onto, I would ditch it. I recently added a lumbar support cushion and a quiver-type holder to carry my forearm crutches. These are strapped to the back of the "Captain's chair" backrest, and are holding on well.
Comments:One thing I love about this chair is that I was able to get it at all! My DME coverage is so miniscule as to be non-existent, so I paid for this chair out of my own pocket. Got a great deal by shopping online for used chairs. So, whatever your situation, don't give up! Some charities also exist which place used chairs. My Paratransit drivers love this chair because it is small and easy to maneuver and tie down. I love it for whizzing along hospital corridors, and find it easy to change speeds. As I stated before, the maneuverability can't be beat. It charges up overnight with a no-fuss plugin, and is so attractive that I always have strangers commenting things like "I wish I could get one of those!" I do think my useage stretches this chair to the limits, as it probably was designed mostly as an indoor chair and I use it mostly outdoors and for public places. I hope to get an "off-road" chair soon, but I suspect this baby will be a favorite for years to come.
