Pam from Chicago, IL submitted this review on March 22nd 2013 at 09:19 PM. Pam is a clinician who has over five years of experience with the product.
Strengths:One of the lightest and most portable options.
Weaknesses:It falls apart all the time. It needs to be tightened and adjusted constantly. The headrest is absolutely awful if the child lacks head control. Over time the seat begins to shift and the child starts to sit at an angle, terrible on the spine. The foot plate is a pain and every high tone kid I work with fights it. It is impossible to clean and food gets stuck in all its teensy crevices. The tray never clamps on right. It doesn't have nearly enough growth. It is hard to reach the back buckles when the canopy is on. And the list goes on.
Comments:I have worked with over 20 children who used this chair. If the child has relatively normal or low tone, it seems passable. I absolutely hate it with children who have mixed or high tone. Fight for a good chair when your child is small and you won't be paying for back braces, spinal surgeries, or alternative seating later on.

Jenn from PA submitted this review on August 13th 2012 at 09:36 AM. Jenn is a care giver who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Kid Kart provides good support and positioning options. My 3 year old daughter seems comfortable in it, when it is properly adjusted. It is heavy, but not any more so than most wheelchairs.
Weaknesses:Falls apart. We have had to replace bolts and screws on a regular basis, since the chair was a few months old. We have had the chair for 2 years and our daughter (who is a tiny 3 year old) had outgrown the back, the headrest is completely stripped and will no longer stay in position, and the lateral supports and belt are constantly loose.
Comments:This was the only chair insurance agreed to pay for. I wish we had spent more time fighting insurance to get an appropriate, sturdy chair.

Kristi from Jamestown submitted this review on May 7th 2009 at 08:38 PM. Kristi is a care giver who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Has stroller base and feeder base. Chair has tilt and recline.
Weaknesses:Stroller base's front wheels wobble when not walking on a completly smooth surface. Latteral suports need tighting often. Has some growth not a lot.
Comments:My son is 4 and a half and has CP. We purchased this chair when he was 2. He has already out grown the chair (length). He tends to extend a lot and this chair allows him to which is not good for him. The head rest doesnt help with his head and keeping it in mid-line.The latteral supports, after a while are allowing him to slump which isnt good for his spine. We are now looking into a new wheel chair. It worked well for him for about a year then his tone increased. So make sure you look into all options for a chair.

Antonia from Toronto, Ont, Canada submitted this review on September 10th 2008 at 07:35 PM. Antonia is a care giver who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:I love everything about this chair, I looked into a lot of pedia. Wheelchairs and this was the best buy far. It takes apart a lot better the rest that I tried before purchasing. It can be adapted to my Son's needs (although at times I may need the vendors help)
Weaknesses:It is quite heavy but can be taken apart pretty easy to transport...

It was a bit costly and it sucked that the home base for indoor use had to be bought seperate however has been very handy
Comments:I would recommend this to anyone however I would always suggest that parents try out different makes and models before purchasing any equipment for their children, As what works for one person may not be the best for you and your family.

Rachel from Platte City, Missouri USA submitted this review on June 23rd 2008 at 09:01 PM. Rachel is a care giver who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Is great with storage areas.
Weaknesses:Brakes,trunk supports and headrest constantly need tightened up.Handle bar becomes loose from folding down and eventually the cable will disconnect and you won't be able to fold it down.
Comments:My son has CP and is 5 and a half he has had this chair since he was one and a half and it has not grown with him very well. We are constantly needing something repaired on it and it is a pain to transport because it is so big and bulky.

Timothy from Riley Hosp. Indianapolis, Indiana submitted this review on April 17th 2006 at 10:02 AM. Timothy is a clinician who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Rolls nicely
Weaknesses:Not enough adjustment for proper seating anywhere on this chair. This is a very poor choice for Medicade patients who have to keep a wheelchair for 5 years before they become eligible again for a wheelchair with positioning seating like Freedom seating with a Quickie mobile base which is a much better choice. I honestly don't know how some fellow therapists or caregivers could even consider the Kid Kart a valid choice for positioning. Its overpriced for what options it offers, has very little growth potential and after about a year's use it becomes hard to adjust and is a rattletrap.
Comments:I wouldn't recommend the Kid Kart to...anyone. I think that it is pushed by the salespeople as a "positioning" stroller that doesn't look like a wheelchair. Sales of this product are especially successful to parents who do not want the look of a wheelchair. There are much smarter choices for Positioning of children than Kid Kart.

Tricia from Bangor, Pa USA submitted this review on May 19th 2004 at 12:52 PM. Tricia is a care giver who has one to six months of experience with the product.
Strengths:My daughter is hypotonic and has feeding issues. The chair gives her adequate support for feeding and other activities. I am able to keep the stroller base in my car and the high chair base in the house, then I only have to move the chair out of one base into the other when traveling.
Weaknesses:The screws for the head rest and lateral supports become loose after transfering the chair in and out of my car multiple times. Laterals need adjustment often and are difficult to open. The hip belt needs to be tight to keep her hips in because the abuctor is too large to use and the belt cuts into her abdomen. The sunshade does not fold out of the way and the bulkiness of is embarassing when in a store.
Comments:I am thrilled to have the chair for her. It has made a huge difference in her function in sitting and her comfort during outings. I am happy with the versitility and growth the chair provides.
