FWM discriminates against people with disabilities. These contraptions are not wheelchairs they are lawn chairs. Please stop using poor people with disabilities as your puppets and for your financial gains. You can purchase real folding wheelchairs from your partnering Chinese factory for the same price you hustle innocent people for. If your lawn chair is not good enough for people in the USA – why do you continue to dump these things in the developing world - the answer is clear
