    yeah I have medicare/medicaid as Medicare won't cover titanium, no way around it with medicaid.

    I was after the TR box frame, I think I'm going to try and go with the invacare terminator everyday. Just with the Ergo seat frame

    If you want a titanium upgrade then you need to go with Medicare Advantage. They still offer the upgrade.

    Ha.. my dilemma.
    Have you ever owned an Invacare manual chair?? what issues did you have ?

    If Tilite built an Aluminum version of their TR my decision would be easy. I'm after the box frame, I need the rigidity.
