Product: TiLite Aero T – Pure Geometry
Dual-Tube Technology is at the heart of the new Aero T adult ultralight wheelchair. The geometry of the flowing lines stiffens the wheelchair, transferring more of the user’s push stroke directly to the ground. No wasted energy means fewer strokes throughout the day. In combination with TiFit, this is the key to the exceptional performance of the Aero T. TiLite exclusively offers TiFit, made-to-measure manual mobility. The company states that the difference between a TiFit chair and all other chairs is that a TiFit chair is tailored specifically to the person. Every TiFit chair is an optimally fitted, wheeled prosthetic.
