Ergonomic Seating

Optimal manual wheelchair mobility is determined through wheelchair configuration and design.  The more the wheelchair matches the contours and shape of the individual, the more effective it is.  This is supported by both RESNA and the PVA’s clinical practice guidelines.

Ergonomic seating is used every day, and can be seen in your car, your home furniture, and even your dentist’s office.  TiLite now provides ergonomic seating on all their rigid wheelchair frames, demonstrating further our commitment to fit your wheelchair to you.

Advantages of Ergonomic Seating

With customized measurements and a personalized evaluation by a therapist and ATP, ergonomic seating may provide:

  • Improved posture and postural stability
  • Improved activity tolerance through increased support
  • Improved propulsion through improved wheel access
  • Increased chair stability

Positioning matters

The end-user is dependent upon cushion and back rests alone without ergonomic seating.  By including this configuration option there is another tool available to investigate how to improve a person’s position and comfort in their manual wheelchair.  The more tailored the chair is to the person, the more time and energy they will have to spend time on what matters.

Don’t forget to further enhance the seating system with the selection and placement of your back support and pressure distributing cushion!

Introducing Jess Markt

Today we have the pleasure of introducing Jess Markt. He's been a TiLite user for the last 18 years, and we'll be publishing blog posts from Jess in the near future.

Jess Markt was 19 years old in August of 1996 and was preparing for his sophomore season as a high jumper on the University of Oregon track team when he was involved in a serious car accident near his family home in West Linn, OR. As a result of the accident, Jess was paralyzed at the T6 vertebrae and, from that day forward, would need to use a wheelchair to navigate the world. Upon learning the severity and permanence of his injury, Jess assumed his athletic dreams were over, but he decided not to let that hinder his motivation. He threw himself fully into physical rehabilitation with the goal of returning to school, finishing his degree, and moving forward productively with his life.
