Manual Wheelchairs

The art of building a chair around you.

Imagine a wheelchair built just for you.

Not just one or two adjustments. But every single component, selected, measured, cut and assembled to fit you. From the lightest, strongest metals around. It’d be stronger. Lighter. More comfortable. Easier to push. Easier to stop. Easier to load. Easier to store.

That’s the idea behind TiLite – and it’s all part of our exclusive process called TiFit.

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.
