Titanium performance.

The 2GX combines the advantages of a modular folding frame with the high strength and vibration dampening characteristics of titanium. Add full adjustability and the 2GX is designed to empower – no matter where you choose to roll.

  • Balanced Ride

    Permobil manual wheelchairs are a balanced extension of you. Learn more here on how TiLite chairs empower you and your potential with their lightweight, durable, and individual configurations.

    Find your balanced ride

  • The wheelchair footplates, footrest and wheels.
    Modular Design

    The modular frame design of the 2GX facilitates configurability in the field. This includes adding aftermarket seating systems, switching fixed and swing away front ends, and growing chair width and/or depth to meet changing customer needs.

  • 2GX Adjustable
    Full Adjustability

    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 wheelchair because you are not limited to a series of pre-set holes.

  • 2GX Folding
    Folding Frame

    The 2GX folding frame is compact, with a fluid, easy-to-use folding mechanism. Side-to-side folding minimizes the folding width and maximizes ease of transportation. These features are “must have” advantages for anyone who chooses a folding chair.

  • The midline footrest of the Wheelchair.
    Titanium

    Titanium provides a smoother ride, won’t break, and has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal on Earth. That is why TiLite builds our highest performing wheelchairs from seamless, aerospace-grade titanium. If you want strength, durability, and a smooth roll, you want a titanium ride.

2GX  Innovation

Modular Design of the 2GX facilitates configurability in the field. This includes:

  • Adding aftermarket seating systems.
  • Switching fixed and swing away front ends.
  • Growing chair width and/or depth.

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 on today’s wheelchairs by reducing the number of holes in the frame.

Improved Speedloader Design makes for easier, more durable adjustments and two positions (forward/backwards) for caster positioning.

Redesigned Footplates are lighter with a rubberized non-slip surface and an updated look.

Patented Curved Axle Plate allows for the greatest range in center of gravity adjustment and rear seat height adjustment.

Snap-In Seat Saddles lock the cross tubes in place on TiLite’s rigid folding mechanism. This feature helps the Aero X achieve rigid chair performance.

The 2Gx utilizes Machined Plugs to create rear wheel camber. In contrast to using washers to create rear wheel camber, the use of machined camber plugs precisely aligns the 2Gx’s rear wheels, allowing the chair to consistently track straight.

All about you.

We see a wheelchair the same way you do. As an extension of you. Not just of your body. But of your personality. Why? Because many of our employees are also TiLite users. They depend on our chairs as much as you do. And they’ve learned through experience how to use design, technology and creativity to improve lives.

Tips for justifying a K0005 ultra lightweight manual wheelchair

This is the 4th blog in our manual wheelchair guide series. See the1st blog,2nd blog, and 3rd blog. Check out theManual Wheelchair Guideto learn more.

In our manual wheelchair guide blog series, we've discussed DME short-term use manual wheelchairs, CRT long-term use manual wheelchairs, and we've looked closer at the K0005 ultra lightweight manual wheelchair option. The K0005 ultra lightweight manual wheelchair is THE manual wheelchair for a full-time wheelchair user with goals to be active at home and in the community. Below we look at tips for justifying a K0005 manual wheelchair.

How can I make sure that my client gets the manual wheelchair they need?
Qualification for a K0005 is functionally based, not diagnosis based. Rule out a K0001-K0004 by documenting why the “least costly” alternative is not effective. Include a description of the client’s routine activities and whether they are fully independent in the use of the wheelchair.

Use objective tests and measures such as a Wheelchair Propulsion TestCompare an optimally configured ultra lightweight wheelchair vs. lower-end wheelchair; time propulsion over a fixed distance; count push strokes; differentiate quality of propulsion; document pain, fatigue, or perceived exertion; utilize pulse oximetery
Consider safety, efficiency, and ability to independently complete all mobility related activities of daily living (MRADLs) all day, every day, in a timely manner with a lesser MWC
Consider the need to configure an ultra lightweight wheelchair for better posture and mobility
Document the unique features of a K0005 and why they are needed:

Adjustable front and rear seat-to-floor heights
Individualized seat and frame width and depth
Axle adjustability
Seat slope
Rear wheel camber
Seat back angle

* Examples why the features may be needed: An adjustable axle plate is required for center of gravity adjustment to allow for efficient propulsion and decreased shoulder pain from 6/10 to 0/10. An adjustable axle needed to allow for efficient propulsion compared to a lesser WC: Person took 35 push strokes & 5 min to propel 40' to bathroom, compared to ultra lightweight WC, where it took 15 push strokes & 2 minutes. Additional seat size options are required as my client of 6’ and 170 lbs does not fit the standard configurations of lower-end manual wheelchairs.

Join us next time in our manual wheelchair guide blog series as we continue to look at the K0005 ultra lightweight manual wheelchair this time turning our focus to configuration.

Alternative Drive Controls: Single Switch Scanning and Eye Gaze

This is the 12th blog in our series about power wheelchairs. Check out the1st blog,2nd blog,3rd blog,4th blog,5th blog,6th blog,7th blog,8th blog,9th blog,10th blog, and 11th blog.Check out ourPower Wheelchair Guidefor more information about power mobility.

Our focus continues on alternative drive controls in our power wheelchair series. We know that these are technologies that allow power wheelchair users to control their power wheelchairs even when they can’t use a traditional joystick. In our last blog about alternative drive controls we discussed head array, sip & puff, and switch arrays & multiple-switch control. Today we are going over single switch scanning and eye gaze.

Abilities Virtual Interview with Chuck Witkowski & Paul Amadeus Lane

Permobil has attended and supported the Abilities Expo for a number of years. So when the event for the disability community moved from an in-person experience to a virtual experience we were excited to be a part of the first Abilities Virtual. Below is a video of the interview between the president of Permobil Chuck Witkowski and Paul Amadeus Lane along with the transcript of the conversation.
