The best from every angle.

The sweeping curves of the titanium dual-tube frame are the perfect fusion of striking design and driven performance. Lighter, more efficient, and more elegant than any chair anywhere. As our flagship rigid chair, the TR is simply the best of the best.

  • Balanced Ride

    Permobil manual wheelchairs are a balanced extension of you. Learn more here on how TiLite chairs empower you and your potential with their lightweight, durable, and individual configurations.

    Find your balanced ride

  • A mid-side Wheelchair on the grass.
    Rigid

    Rigid frame chairs are the lightest and highest performing chairs because they are constructed from the fewest possible components and have the fewest moving parts.

  • The lower part of the Wheelchair.
    Ease of Transport & Energy Saving

    Imagine no wasted energy with a swept-in dual-tube frame and fewer strokes throughout the day. Then introduce your imagination to the superior rigidity and optimal energy transfer of the swept-in dual-tube frame of the TR. Want more? Then add ease of transport to rival that of any mono-tube frame.

  • The lower left side of the wheelchair.
    Titanium

    Titanium provides a smoother ride, won’t break, and has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal on Earth. That is why TiLite builds our highest performing wheelchairs from seamless, aerospace-grade titanium. If you want strength, durability, and a smooth roll, you want a titanium ride.

  • Minimum Adjustability

    The center of gravity can be moved forward/backward, but not up and down reducing overall weight. And the back rest can be adjustable (i.e. Precision Lock) or fixed (less weight, more rigid).

TR Innovation

The Ergonomic Advantage provides an additional unique bend in the frame creating an ergonomic seat slope sitting you lower in the chair providing greater pelvic stability and improved posture through optimal contouring.

Swept-In Dual-Tube Frame

  • Dual-tube geometry adds rigidity to the chair, transferring more of you push stroke to the wheel
  • More energy into the wheel, means less push strokes throughout the day
  • Curved under lower tube creates a stylistic look and more clearance for car transfers

Non-adjustable front caster housing reduces weight and adds even more style

Zero Play Camber Plugs give a much tighter feel to the chair like sport suspension in a car. CNC machined from billet aluminum to the highest tolerances, they remove any side to side movement from the rear wheels.

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.

Explaining Power Seat Functions: Power Tilt & Power Recline

This is the 4th blog in our series about power wheelchairs. Check out the
1st blog
,
2nd blog, and
3rd blog
. Check out our
Power Wheelchair Guide
for more information about power mobility.

As we continue working our way through power wheelchair topics our focus turns to the different power seat functions available on the market today.Simply put, power seat functions are the different positions a power wheelchair can achieve. These different positions can be important to perform functional tasks during the day (e.g., seat elevation for reaching items) and/or they can be important to prevent medical complications (e.g., posterior tilt and recline for skin protection). Today we're taking a closer look at power tilt and power recline.

Drive Wheel Placement and Indoor Maneuverability

This is the 3rd blog in our series about power wheelchairs. Check out the 1st blog & 2nd blog. Check out our Power Wheelchair Guide for more information about power mobility.

In our last blog about power wheelchairs and mobility, we discussed the benefits and considerations of drive wheel placement. This week we're continuing our look at drive wheel placement in regards to indoor maneuverability.
When instructing for indoor maneuvering, keep in mind:

wheelchairs pivot at the drive wheel
initiate the turn when the center of the drive wheel reaches the corner
for FWD, hug the wall the wheelchair will be turning towards
for RWD, stay further away from the wall the wheelchair will be turning towards
with a longer wheelbase and the further back the drive wheel is on the base of the WC, there may be additional pivoting needed to line up effectively

TiLite: How to find a Balanced Ride

As an occupational therapist working in seating clinics, it was important for me to prescribe equipment that met as many of my clients’ needs as possible. The more I focused on their needs, the more I understood that providing even the best ultra-lightweight manual wheelchair still meant there would be some tradeoffs. For me, this was a daunting task at times, but there was nothing better than hearing a client say that their new ultra-lightweight manual wheelchair “feels like it’s a part of me.”
