Portable Chair for Handicapped Person - Help!
My dad was tall and my mom is small. In fact, my elderly
mother is 5ft and probably weighs 95lbs.
She has the usual motorized recliner lift chairs. I purchased
two for her. As you know, these chairs are large and heavy.
She uses several handicapped assist devices to sit and stand
with less effort. Even though she is a small woman, I need
a portable chair with a seat large enough to accomodate these
devices. At a minimum the seat should be 22ÃÂ½" wide and 19"

Believe it or not, Walmart's website has an incredibly nice all wood
chair that might be large enough. Only the overall dimensions are

Can someone help me find a decent portable chair with a seat
large enough for my mother and her handicapped equipment?
(Please, don't suggest a bariatric chair. Some of these chairs are
fourty or fifty inches wide! They're made for hugely obese people.)
