Manual Wheelchairs

The art of building a chair around you.

Imagine a wheelchair built just for you.

Not just one or two adjustments. But every single component, selected, measured, cut and assembled to fit you. From the lightest, strongest metals around. It’d be stronger. Lighter. More comfortable. Easier to push. Easier to stop. Easier to load. Easier to store.

That’s the idea behind TiLite – and it’s all part of our exclusive process called TiFit.

What in the construction of an offloading wheelchair cushion allows for pressure redistribution?

Part 5 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3, and Part 4.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

Through the built-in contours of an offloading style cushion, the therapist can help align and stabilize the spine, pelvis, and LEs to allow the pressure and shear forces to be transferred from a smaller surface area to a greater surface area. The contours needed for offloading pressure are:

Offloading vs Immersion: Wheelchair Cushions for Pressure Injuries

Part 4 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2, Part 3.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

The rule of thumb to minimize peak pressures with the goal of reducing the risk of or healing an existing pressure injury is: remove pressure from a small surface area that cannot withstand constant pressure or shear forces and REDISTRIBUTE it across areas of greater surface area. For example, we can redistribute pressure from the ITs to the femur and as much of the gluteal surface as possible. And we achieve this through either offloading or immersion.
One method is not necessarily better than the other; a therapist must understand what the benefits and considerations are of all methods and choose the best option for each patient. Utilize cushions that through their construction offload or immerse, or combine the principles.
Let’s review in detail the principle of offloading.

The Benefits of Standing for a Wheelchair User

Part 2 in our series focusing on wheelchair solutions for Veterans. See Part 1 here.

If you work in an office setting, you’ll notice that there is an increased push towards standing desks and even treadmill desks. It has been well documented that prolonged sitting affects your health. So, if this is true for able-bodied individuals, it is certainly true for a wheelchair user.
