BREYDON’s wheelchair trials: TiLite 2GX
Saturday 27 March 2021.

Collapsible (scissor fold), box‐frame chair.
Less appropriate than my old chair!! Probably even bigger, too; harder to fit inside bathroom and through doors.
TiLite do make two models of fitted rigid chair: the 1″ dual‐tube TiLite TR and the 1·25″ monotube TiLite ZR. This clumsily‐engineered lump has put me off trying them.
