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.

  • 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.
    Swept-in Dual Tube Frame

    Imagine no wasted energy 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 TiLite handle of the backseat.
    TiFit

    The difference between a TiFit chair and all other chairs is that a TiFit chair is a wheeled prosthetic: Every frame is made to measure. The optimized fit of a TiFit chair brings unparalleled performance and function. You will feel the difference in everything you do.

  • The lower left side of the wheelchair.
    Titanium

    Titanium absorbs vibration, 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.

TR Innovation

Swept-In Dual-Tube Frame

  • The flowing lines of dual-tube geometry stiffens the wheelchair, transferring more of your push stroke directly to the ground.
  • No wasted energy means fewer strokes throughout the day.
  • Sweeping curve of the lower frame tube creates a unique look as the lower frame blends in and fades away.

Swept Caster Arm with bullet caster housing reduces weight and adds yet 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.

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.

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.

Power Assist from a Proactive Perspective

Power assist is often discussed hand in hand with shoulder injury or shoulder pain. What if the discussion was different? What if power assist was considered a proactive part of manual mobility to enhance health and function? Curtis Merring recently spoke with Laurie Watanabe for a Mobility Management podcast on SmartDrive. In the podcast Curtis changes the conversation about power assist and explains that SmartDrive is simply an extension of manual mobility. It can give the wheelchair user the means to do more of what they love without compromise, and only use it when they need it. Check out this podcast to hear more about SmartDrive as a proactive choice to power your push!

Wheelchair Prescriptions with Short Rehab Stays

Getting the appropriate wheelchair when patients are discharged so early is a common challenge these days with rehab stays getting shorter and shorter. The average inpatient rehab stays are now 7-10 days, with patients going home to receive Home Health services. Considering that an ultra-lightweight manual wheelchair can take weeks or months to get due to the process that is required, how can you ensure that your patients get the appropriate wheelchair?
First, when you do your initial evaluation be thinking about whether your client may need a wheelchair when going home. If the answer is yes, treat your evaluation as if they are going to need a K0005 wheelchair, even if they initially go home in a lower end manual wheelchair for a short period of time. K0005 documentation should be more than sufficient to cover a lower coded chair so there is no real duplication of process.

Important Facts

Applications for ActiveReach™ & ActiveHeight™

ActiveHeight™ and ActiveReach™ is the dynamic combination of power seat elevation and anterior tilt function now available to power wheelchair users who rely on power seat functions to improve their health, function and participation in everyday life. The combination of ActiveHeight™ and ActiveReach™ allows the wheelchair user to perform tasks in a more ergonomically correct way, similar to how a non-wheelchair user would do. For example:
