September 7, 2017 – Permobil introduces the Precision Lock caster adjustment system, a simplified and more accurate way to square TiLite manual wheelchairs in a matter of minutes. Precision Lock is the only caster system to feature a single-socket adjustment mechanism while offering an unrestricted range of movement.
The new, innovative design of the Precision Lock minimizes the amount of hardware needed to make adjustments – reducing both the complexity and number of steps required. Utilizing a friction-based locking system, two wedges work together to lock the front caster in place. A single-bolt is linked through the wedges to secure the positioning and allow for a stronger and more durable interface. Precision Lock helps ensure a more responsive front end in line with the user’s exact ride preferences.
“Precision Lock represents the next step in wheelchair adjustment technology. The simple one bolt adjustment utilizing a single tool allows for a broad range of adjustments and eliminates the time-consuming task of removing hardware and attempting to line up slots or positioning screws to align your front casters. This is truly a situation where less is more and the minimalist design combined with the range of precise adjustability is truly the most innovative design in its class.,” says Terry Mulkey, Director of Business Development- Manual Wheelchairs, Permobil Americas.
Precision Lock combines a minimalist design with an unprecedented combination of adjustability and performance and will now be available on all TRA, AERO T, ZRA, and AERO Z TiLite chairs.
