TiLite

According to the company, the TiFit process begins
with taking the customer's precise measurements. "A
TiFit frame starts as a blueprint on a computer which
is created directly from your order form and your exact
measurements," the company says. "With the TiFit process, we don't start building any part of your frame - not
a single tube gets bent - until we get your order form and
your measurements."
Those precise measurements factor into the overall construction of each individual wheelchair, and the company
says its ability to offer customized frame depth ensures a
perfect fit. "TiFit offers custom frame depth, which enables
you to optimize the fit, balance, and footprint of your chair,"
the company says. "The key to custom frame depth is that
it allows you to specify your frame depth independently
of your seat depth. For example, you can add length to the
front of your frame [beyond the end of your seat sling] to
help balance your chair and to allow you to adjust your center of gravity forward. The enhanced balance, increased
handrim access, and space saved by moving your center of
gravity gives you more performance and efficiency without
affecting your chair's footprint."
All throughout the TiFit process, the company takes
into consideration all of the tiniest details that go into
the construction of each wheelchair, even if they are details that the customer isn't thinking about necessarily.
"The TiFit process even optimizes measurements that
you don't specify, like the positioning of your casters,"
the company explains. "As part of the TiFit process, we
determine your caster spacing and caster placement
based on the seat width, footrest width, and style and
size of the casters ordered for your chair. This process insures that the optimal balance is struck between stability
and maneuverability.
"TiLite, through the TiFit process, is the only manufacturer that does this," the company adds. "Why do we do it?
Because it matters with every push you take."
The company says its ability to perform more precise and
complex bends during the manufacturing process is another reason why its TiFit process is so successful. "Pelvic
stability is the key to overall stability," the company says.
"TiFit helps you maximize pelvic stability and lower extremity support by allowing the chair frame to more closely
follow the lines of your body. This leads to better comfort
and efficiency because you will spend less time repositioning yourself in your chair. How do we do it? By offering more
custom complex frame bends than any other manufacturer
in order to ensure that you sit comfortably." mt
