Tilite Aero Z Lightweight Rigid Wheelchair
Product DescriptionOpen frame. Open road.
The open frame of the aluminum Aero Z calls out to the open road. The Aero Z is the only TiFit, mono-tube aluminum frame on the market. In a class by itself, the Aero Z is lightweight and fully adjustable, and it won’t break the bank!
Rigid frame chairs are the lightest and highest performing chairs because they are constructed from the fewest possible components and have the fewest moving parts.
Precision Lock technology from Permobil is the most intuitive and easy-to-use adjustment system on the market. Together, the Precision Lock caster and back angle adjustments compose an exact fit and effortless ride.
Distinguished by a clean, modern look, the mono-tube frame’s 1.25″ tubing gives the Aero Z strength and durability. The frame shape affords excellent transportability and easy placement on a car seat. Round off the Aero Z’s frame with curved, ovalized caster arms.
The difference between a TiFit chair and all other chairs is that a TiFit chair is a wheeled prosthetic: Every frame is made to measure. The optimized fit of a TiFit chair brings unparalleled performance and function. You will feel the difference in everything you do.
Aero Z Innovation
The Tru-Fit System opens up the world of adjustability by incorporating an infinite adjustment mechanism. The Tru-Fit system allows you to fine-tune the fit of your chair because you are not limited to a series of pre-set holes. Also, instead of bolting through frame-weakening holes, components clamp directly onto the frame. This eliminates one of the main stress points in today's wheelchairs by reducing the number of holes in the frame.
Adjustable Camber Mount incorporates TiLite's Tru-Fit system with up to 3.5″ of rear seat height adjustment.
The Precision Lock Caster System is a simplified and more accurate way to square your wheelchair in a matter of minutes. Precision Lock is the only caster system to feature a single-socket adjustment mechanism while offering an unrestricted range of movement.
Zero Play Camber Plugs give a much tighter feel to the chair like sports suspension in a car. CNC machined from billet aluminum to the highest tolerances; they remove any side to side movement from the rear wheels.
TiShaft Back Release Bar makes folding and unfolding the backrest easy from any angle.
