    Talking What are some sweet wheelchairs I should be asking for? Getting a new one!

    Hi guys,

    I'm out of the wheelchair loop but on the 19th I get fitted for a new one. Do you guys recommend any wheelchairs I should name drop or research myself to see if they have any demo chairs once I go in there for the measurements?

    Thanks!

    Tilite ZR can't really be beat, bang for buck, IMO. Very light, very durable, welded together more than screwed together.

    Tilite TR is also a good chair. Lighter and less flex thant the ZR. Both are good chairs. Stay away from Quickie.

    Folder or rigid? Figure out what you want as far as specs, and that will eliminate a lot of chairs. Who is paying for it? Ins, Medicare, you?

    my 1st chair was a TiLite ZRA. that chair was the biggest POS ever! I had to replace the sideguards and the brakes waaaaaaay too many times. I got hurt cuz someone hit my POS explorer and i rolled it 6 times and got tossed. That truck i called Fix Or Recall Daily and it was INFINITE times better than ANYTHING TILITE makes!!!

    Steve at D's Locks has a Marvel M1 demo unit at his shop. If you want to trial it, I could arrange it for you. (He's in San Diego)
