Head turning style.

With the ZR’s minimalist mono-tube frame, less truly is more. The clean aesthetic of the ZR turns heads while the titanium frame makes sure you have the strength and vibration-dampening ride to go with your beauty. Style and strength to take on whatever life throws at you.

  • ZR Showcase Product Detail
    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.

  • ZR Titanium Product Detail
    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.

  • ZR Monotube Product Detail
    Mono-Tube Frame

    Distinguished by a clean, modern look, the mono-tube frame’s 1.25″ tubing gives the ZR strength and durability. The frame shape affords excellent transportability and easy placement on a car seat. Round off the ZR’s frame with curved, ovalized caster arms.

ZR  Innovation

The Ergonomic Advantage means 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.

The ZR’s sleek Mono-Tube Frame, with 1.25″ tubing, is 20% lighter than its predecessor but retains titanium’s 44% strength advantage over 7000 series aluminum.

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.

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.

Manual wheelchair frame materials: 6000 & 7000 series aluminum

Hi again. In our last Balanced Ride blog we discussed the importance of material science in the complex rehab technology industry. Frame material choice in ultra-lightweight manual wheelchairs (ULMWCs) plays a pivotal role for someone searching for a more Balanced Ride. Today we are going to dive a bit deeper how and why aluminum is used when manufacturing ULMWCs. Aluminum is the material used most often, though it is still surprising that it was only 50 years ago that people started to use it in the design and production of ULMWCs. Especially when you consider the fact that wheelchairs or similar devices have been used for over 2000 years.
