Quickie Argon 2 Manual Wheelchair


Wheelchair Name: 
Quickie Argon 2

Tell us what your wheelchair looks like: 
Solid metallic purple frame, folding handles, tilt bar and footplate. Low-ish back rest (lowered it myself) & I have 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 debating with myself), in January 2018, and they are fabulous!

Personal Opinion:

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 the chair 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 easier at work, go shopping alone and generally be more independent. But a metal bar across the back of the chair makes fitting a bag difficult
