Ultralightweight manual wheelchairs differ greatly when comparing design. Optimal mobility outcomes are dependent upon three main factors: configuration, weight, and durability. Each choice when selecting a manual wheelchair has a direct impact on performance and functional use for our pediatric and adult end-users. The evidence shows that people using a manual wheelchair propel 2-3000 times per day and that mechanical efficiency ranges have been measured at around 2-14%. Addressing this challenge requires making sure the ultralightweight manual wheelchair can be configured as close to the person’s shape as possible while remaining lightweight and durable. TiLite manual wheelchairs are designed to do just that. This 1-hr webinar will discuss the full line of TiLite custom manual wheelchair solutions, and specialty custom options, available to maximize performance and meet each client’s unique needs.
