Advice & Tips: Driving my TiLite AeroZ is actually fun! It's so friendly, superbly engineered, fitted well, easy to propel, sturdy, and maneuverable. Before the chair, I used a very nice rollator, but I discovered that walking was very fatiguing even when assisted. The TiLite chair gives me so much more freedom.
