Solid metallic purple frame with folding handles, tilt bar and footplate. A low-ish backrest that was lowered by myself and some different wheels. Including, the standard ones which came with the chair, some “off-road” wheels with chunky tyres that I rarely use, and my loop wheels, which I treated myself to after much deliberation!

Having only been a full-time wheelchair user since May 2017 I’m not really an expert, but my back becomes very painful after only sitting in this chair for a couple of hours. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m not used to sitting in the chair or if it’s the wheelchair itself, but I suspect the latter.
I’d love to be able to have a bag/shopping on the chair, so I can carry things at work, go shopping alone and generally be more independent. But there is a metal bar across the back of the chair that makes fitting a bag difficult! Not sure if I would recommend this chair, but my experience could be tainted by the fact that it just isn’t the right chair for me!
