(EN)The present invention includes a brake mechanism adapted to be installed on an existing collapsible wheelchair. The brake mechanism may be adapted to be operably installed on only one side of a frame of the collapsible wheelchair such that a side-to-side collapsibility of the frame of the collapsible wheelchair is significantly unimpeded by the brake mechanism. The present invention may also include a brake handle assembly adapted to be installed on the existing wheelchair. The brake handle assembly includes a coupling member provided to a foldable wheelchair frame and a hand release lever operably coupled to the coupling member and a wheel brake mechanism.
