Shopping for a transport chair for my wife wasn't easy. Thanks to my son, we found the Nova to be just the right size for her stature. Unlike some others I saw at the stores, the Nova only weighs about 19 lbs and we can pop off the foot rests when needed. It's folded size is just right for the small hatchback car we drive. It's easy for my son or I to move my wife in or out of the transport chair thanks to the wheel locks.
