This chair was used only when I visited my parents, extremely seldom. They have had it there for about 4 years and it has been used approximately 12 - 16 times. It is in good working order, it is the top of the line in Shower/Commode chairs. Please don't hesitate to reply or email me heatherdrusky@bellsouth.net if you have any questions.

Below is how Vitality Medical website explains the features:
