As to the other questions for ME: I have a Quickie XTR; love it for it's portability & ADORE it's suspension system/shock absorbing spring.
Every now and again though it would be nice to do things like go up stairs on my own instead of having to be carried up the flight of stairs, & being able to stand up or just raise the seating level @ a whim to be eye to eye with people , & the "tilt in space" so you're still in all 90 degree angles but yet reclined...is something that WOULD make an electric chair worth "the hassles" of more maintenance , harder to transport & the higher cost.
I'm sure there is always SOMETHING that someone can come up with that hasn't been thought of before. But almost all of the features you have listed are already currently available...although not always in the same wheelchair.

Something you left out in your survey was price. If chairs were cheap enough,, you could buy several,, and use the one that fit your needs best for right then,, then switch when you wanted to do something else. Alas,,, most of us aren't fortunate enough for that.

And get this...he finally got the OK to get it serviced at the dealer, but then discovered that they had moved their shop to an area that's outside the range of our local public transportation service.
