All about you.

We see a wheelchair the same way you do. As an extension of you. Not just of your body. But of your personality. Why? Because many of our employees are also TiLite users. They depend on our chairs as much as you do. And they’ve learned through experience how to use design, technology and creativity to improve lives.

Common Concerns About Early Power Mobility Devices

The last part in our series about developmental milestones in early childhood focusing on mobility. Seepart 1,part 2,part 3,part 4, part 5,part 6,part 7, part 8,part 9, part 10, part 11, and part 12.

Perhaps one of the mostly widely known authors on this topic are Wiart and Darrah from an article published in 2002 entitled “Changing philosophical perspectives on the management of children with physical disabilities: Their effect on the use of powered mobility.” The authors highlight the paradigm shift that occurred around that time frame and that several factors contributed to the new philosophy.
Two very important political changes occurred

Understanding Cushion Properties with the Help of ANSI/RESNA & ISO Standards Conclusion

This is the final blog in our series on understanding cushion properties with the help of ANSI/RESNA and ISO standards. See blog 1, blog 2, blog 3,blog 4, blog 5, blog 6, blog 7, blog 8, blog 9, and blog 10.

We greatly appreciate the interest that has been shown in this series, “Understanding Cushion Properties with the Help of ANSI/RESNA and ISO standards”. Please continue to reach out with questions and comments.
We began by reviewing the structure of the ISO standards technical groups, working groups, and national committees, and explored the benefits and limitations of standards, as well as how these methods relate to clinical practice . We then dove into five specific ISO standards:

Functional Elements of the Explorer Mini's Saddle Seat

Part 11 in our series about developmental milestones in early childhood focusing on mobility. Seepart 1,part 2,part 3,part 4, part 5,part 6,part 7, part 8,part 9, part 10,and part 12.

The saddle seat was designed intentionally to facilitate an upright posture through developmentally appropriate supports. Research regarding the use of either flat seats or saddle-like seating has been conducted over the years. The work of DT Reid (1996) tells us that children with Cerebral Palsy displayed better seat alignment and postural control of the upper body resulting in a more efficient reaching path in a saddle seat making it easier to reach desired item. In 2006, Stavness reviewed the literature on the effect of positioning for children with cerebral palsy and upper extremity function. Evidence supports that an upright position, versus sitting back in a chair, improves reaching and hand manipulation. Additionally, the optimal position is a cutout tray, a sloped seat forward of 0-15 degrees and that the line of gravity be in front of the “sit bones”, otherwise known as the ischial tuberosities.
