    Karman XO-505 standing power chair thought?

    Considering Permobil wants at least $60k for their F5 VS chair, I'm wondering if the Karman power standing chair is any good (at roughly one-fifth the price). Anyone used one or heard good or bad about them?

    FYI-I was watching a talk show earlier in the week, and one of the guests was using a power wheelchair I've never heard of...so did a google search for them. They are in Malaysia, no idea if their any good, but might be worth checking out? (has a USA showroom) https://www.wheelchair88.com/product...ng-wheelchair/

    Interesting that they look IDENTICAL but the rep on chat for wheelchair 88 denied they were related or copies. Yeah right. I'm going to try to call Karman tomorrow to get their story. Probably just a private label and the Malaysian company isn't supposed to admit it.
