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.

When we asked home health therapists about the barriers they face when it comes to seating and wheeled mobility, we found that there are a lot of misconceptions. So, let’s start out by breaking down some barriers and addressing some misconceptions.

Challenges of a Home Health Therapist

Home health care is on the rise as a viable option for therapy especially as the health model shifts from fee-for-service to value based care. Inpatient rehab stays are getting shorter and therapy is increasingly being provided at home due to the significant cost-savings 1,2). Permobil understands that home health is a unique setting, and we want to address the specific challenges to providing seating and wheeled mobility interventions in the home. In today’s blog, we’re discussing why home health therapists may feel ill-equipped to providing these services when asked to do wheelchair or seating evaluations.
