LIGHTWEIGHT FOLDING WHEELCHAIR

RGK Tiga FX I Made to Measure Folding Lightweight Wheelchair

We designed a wheelchair so portable it fits into aircraft overhead storage lockers (and the boot of your car!)

Every so often an idea comes along that changes lives. In this instance it is a creation that revolutionises travel for self-propelling wheelchair users. TIGA fx folds into a briefcase style shape, ideal for storage in tight spaces. The Q-lock system provides rigidity, strength and a lightweight solution along with an action that is simple, easy to operate and streamlined enough to meet all your travel needs. A rigid chair that folds – for people on the move.

“My wife and I love to visit new places. My TIGA fx folds down & fits in the overhead luggage bin of an aircraft – much to the amazement of the cabin staff who haven't seen it before!”
