the cornerstone of the titanium wheelchairs

RGK Hilite lightweight wheelchair

Jemima Croft

“My HiLite means I'm able to be myself again. I'm not trapped in a heavy, ugly chair - I'm just me.
You can see in this picture the difference a made to measure chair makes physically and mentally.
My old chair created a lot of muscle injuries in my back and ankles due to it not being the right size for me, within 2 months of having my HiLite my ankles no longer turned inwards and my back wasn't hunched over, meaning less pain and more mobility. Problem solved!”

Tracy Talbot

“The HiLite is life changing for me, as I no longer feel like 'the girl in the wheelchair', I feel that the chair has become part of me. It's so easy for me to wheel too, which leaves my husband free to actually walk by my side, rather than behind pushing me. The chair makes you sit in the correct position which is great for people with spinal problems. Must say, that my posture is now perfect.”

The titanium wheelchair that stands the test of time

Reliability, quality and an unquestionable trust that it can do whatever you ask of it – that’s what you need from a wheelchair. The HiLite has time and again proven its merit in all of these qualities and more. This chair originally joined the RGK family way back in way back in 1996 and ever since, and ever since it has been upgraded, reimagined and evolved into the cornerstone of our titanium range. An old favourite that brings comfort, literally and metaphorically, to all those who have one.
