Wheelchair technology has evolved dramatically in the last 75 years, going from one-size-fits-all wood and steel units to light weight, high-tech machines. TiLite has been a major part of the evolution. The company started 13 years ago with the idea of combining prosthetic-like customization with the most advanced materials. It began by launching a full line of titanium wheelchairs, each one tailored exactly to the users’ specifications. The material offers some major advantages: It is roughly the same weight as aluminum but three times as strong, meaning a wheelchair can be made with half the material. It’s also a natural shock absorber. But titanium is about 20 times the cost of aluminum and requires highly specialized equipment and technical skill for manufacturing. That’s where TiLite has excelled. Its expert manufacturing team can build wheelchairs in a cost-effective manner without sacrificing quality and durability.
