Melanie from Scotland, UK submitted this review on July 21st 2012 at 09:34 AM. Melanie is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Light weight, neat, looks good, competitive price, scissor brakes, ajustable tention backrest, very durable
Weaknesses:They should make them in hot pink! Also add some Spinergy wheels to make your life easier. Adjustable camber for wheels should be standard.
Comments:This is my second Kuschall. It is very hard wearing. I am a paraplegic so am in my chair all the time. There really isn't much I would change about it except I would like some power assist wheels and my shoulders are giving out! Also I would like a narrower chair as mine is a bit big!I'm skinny!

John from Wyandotte, Michigan, USA submitted this review on November 24th 2006 at 08:40 PM. John is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
Strengths:Nice design, well thought out. Comes apart easily, seat folds down and locks in down and up position to make lifting pretty easy. Mine has the carbon fiber foot rest which I like very much. My arm rests are strong and the padding very tough. I can do full lift pressure relief without feeling that the arm rests are going to fail. I'm 6'4" and about 185 lbs.
Weaknesses:The options for the wheels and tires are not illustrated. I chose the 26" wheels but did not know which tires would be supplied with which tread. I especially liked the tread and the black color with raised white letters on the "Marathon" tires which were on the 24" wheels. The tires I got have virtually no tread and are grey in color. I also got the suspension system which limited the front caster size to 3". I thought this was because it came with "Frog Legs" front suspension but it has no front suspension. Again, better description in the catalog/order sheet would be desirable. The rear suspension works well but probably adds a couple pounds to the chair as well as hanging down below the rear axle tube adding some difficulty to my placing it in the car while seated.
Comments:I am a new para, July 2006, with only a few months experience with wheelchairs. I tried many different brands while an inpatient and the Kuschall had the fewest weak areas of the chairs I tried. It gives me a feeling of high quality design and materials.

Ranger from Portland, OR, USA submitted this review on January 11th 2005 at 10:42 PM. Ranger is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
Strengths:The Kushcall Airlite is one of the best designed and engineered wheelchairs. Sleek looks, easy adjustability, and light weight. The camber tube is oversized aluminium and every push has you surging forward. Nice clothing guards with fenders for all the Portland rain.
Weaknesses:The front casters are small and the chair is generally a bit tippy, so this can make for some time on the ground. Medicare is very reluctant to approve this chair. And it is a crying shame that this chair is not offered in titanium.
Comments:I am extremely happy with this chair and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a very nimble and sexy wheelchair. The minimalist design coupled with the adjustability make it a super chair for the active user.
