    Quickie 2 lite

    First of all would like to thanks each and everyone in this forum giving me so much information on wheelchair. For the last 2 month I have been configured the wheelchair measurement and parts for my friend. And he just received his chair this afternoon from Sportaid.

    Looks like we have another Toto in the wings. Way to go Sowseng, looks good!

    Not a bad chair, brakes wise, I think all wheelchair need to manage, right?

    Compare to other unbranded wheelchair, Quickie is so much better. As a third world country nation, Quickie is what we can afford the most. And the private insurance company does not cover for equipment. Even as I apply the GTi from my government worker insurance, yet not for sure I will get it. But I was lucky then.

    I think this thread was about Sowseng specing out the chair not the chair itself. Earlier, he learned while specing out his own chair and passed it on.

    It may be a heavy chair but it is the one the guy could get. Some of us are blessed to have a choice of chairs; others not.

    It's too bad that there isn't another choice than Quickie though. But ya did a good jopb fitting him.

    It's a good chair sowseng. I still have a Quickie Ti I use as a backup. It's about 12 years old and going strong. Great job you did helping your friend.

    I use a Quickie as my manual chair and it is a good chair. Congratulations on doing such a good job helping your friend ordering his chair.

    Yup, not a bad chair, another friend's Quickie Breezy is still working fine after 14 years.

    If compare with his old steel chair, Quickie 2 Lite is another level far beyond. Almost weight half of it, so much faster and smoother. For a low income guy in a develope country, it is more than satisfy.

    And it is much more compact than the old wheelchair, easily move around in the food stall.
