This feature can also be used while the wheelchair is in motion. And it can move at a speed of 4mph, even if the seat is lowered or entirely raised.

This model is very all-around to suit the comfort of the user, as it has an adjustable armrest, footplate, and headrest. It also has LED marker lights that allow for visibility in the dark. And except for that, it has an under-seat, front storage compartment to easily carry around items. This model also features advanced Mid Wheel 6 Drive Wheels and Active-Trac Suspension, offering outstanding stability on any surface. These Mid Wheels also allow a turning radius of 20.75”, making it suitable for tight spaces as well.

Pros

  • It allows one to enjoy face to face conversations by allowing them to elevate the seat.
  • It has a maximum weight capacity of 300llbs.
  • An individual can adjust its height and weight according to their needs.
  • It is highly efficient, with an upgrade to 40AH battery and battery charge distance of 16.8 miles.

Cons

  • It is pricier than other e-wheelchairs.
  • Its seats do not have pressure relieving aids, and are not wound friendly; sitting on them for too long can even worsen one’s wounds.
  • Its functions are difficult to get used to and can cause the wheelchair to tip over, considering its elevation feature and the 4mph speed it can move around at.

  1. I have an old home, narrow hall, narrow doors, smaller closet doors. I must lift the armrests in locations, but I can get around. I’m going to have banged walls and doors, that’s life.
    The lift is amazing. I’m a big guy and it goes higher than my stance. I have really bad knees, so the lift is essential. I can’t get out of a regular chair on my own.
    It’s comfy, looks good too.
    It’s a great buy in my opinion.
    More to report later.
    Update
    I ran the arm of the chair into a wall and snapped the controller bracket off. The controller survived my shattering crash and the chair is fine. I contacted them about the damage and they’ve responded with a clarification request. Next step is that they are sending a technician to me, in the hospital (not crash-related)
    The chair has performed better than I ever expected. It makes the long 8% ramp grades without slowing down.
    M.S. Medical has been amazing, whenever I had questions, they have been more than helpful every time.
    The chair takes my abuse (unintended of course) and keeps ongoing. I bought some saddlebags for the arms because I need more pockets for my essentials. They have a basket for the back but my house is too small for it. I only assume, but I’m running the back of the chair into things now, a basket would make it worse. I need the tight radius that it has without the basket.
    I do wish I hadn’t set the seat so far back, I think I would have another inch or two of additional clearance on my turns. But I can live with it anyways.
    More to follow
  2. My husband has inclusion body myositis and can no longer walk. The elevating feature and ability for a user to make a 360 turn. The width makes it tricky to get through a standard sized door. My husband really needs thigh rails so that his legs don’t fall out to the sides since he has minimal muscle in them.
  3. My father uses jazzy air 2. He is 63 years old. Both of his legs are amputated above the knee. With Jazzy Air 2 my father was able to return to life. But there is only one weakness, cannot use Jazzy Air 2 outside when it rains.
  4. My wife has a degenerative neurological condition and has lost her ability to walk. The Jazzy is mostly used in the kitchen. Up down movement. Size; joystick needs some getting used to; weight.

  1. Charles S. from Woodstock, Georgia. 80 Years Old Man. Bad back and hips – degenerated discs and arthritis. It is heavy-duty and well balanced. It is great on uneven surfaces. Use it to do yard work. Good climbing ability. Would like a larger foot platform.

Strengths: Large, roomy, comfortable and very quiet. Weaknesses: Foot platform would be nice to be a bit larger for a person with large feet.

  1. “I’ve driven my Jazzy for a bit now and am very comfortable with the controls. It maneuvers well in tight places better than a scooter. It is responsive and the seat is comfortable for a long time. It is too wide for a 24″ door unless you remove the door and shave the stops on the sides of the frame, but that’s worth the effort. The discounted price was right as well. Fit and finish are good and adjust to my 6 + foot height. I would buy it again and would recommend it to a friend.”
  2. “Not good for a woman with short legs and a long torso.
    I must boost myself to sit down. It was a good price for someone like me, who will not play the durable Medicare game.”
  3. “When I leave home for some distance this scooter has a tail wag and a tendency to jerk in forward motion. It gets me around but it could benefit from a smoother ride.”
  4. “This unit works well and is fairly compact. The reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the joystick makes it a bit difficult for the elderly to manage. My mom is 89 and she is having difficulty navigating with it, especially in and out of the elevator!”

Reviews by Customers

  1. “I wanted a small scooter for airport travel as I previously had Go-Go Traveler from Pride was too much for sporadic use. The scooter is exactly what I wanted, basic with not a lot of features but easy to move around, easy to drop off at the gate, and well-fitting for use at hotels and general getting about during travel.”
  2. “Seat is too hard. Seat needs to be back over wheels. Brakes do not work good enough, takes too long to apply after releasing lever.”
  3. It is lightweight with a simple control panel and is great for use around the house. There is no swivel seat, only and only three wheels make for decreased stability.”
  4. “It is not too heavy if the seat and arms are removed. However, it will not operate at times and tilts easily where I have been injured twice. Tilted over in the street while trying to get on the sidewalk, where cars had to stop and one woman had to get out of her car and help my husband get me up.”

  1. Suspension seems to work well. However, installing the battery was a bit difficult.”
  2. “Good value for the price. But I wish the wheels were a bit larger and there was a bit more clearance between the ground and the platform – otherwise good.”
  3. “Easy to use and long battery life. The main weakness is the seat – I am not a fan.”
  4. “It is very comfortable and with the suspension system, it takes the bumps very nicely. The turning radius is not quite as good as the three-wheel scooter – it takes a little getting used to.”
