TiLite has been around for close to three decades. We just didn’t make wheelchairs in the early years. Back then we made titanium bike frames, golf shafts, motorcycle frames, and a huge variety of custom, one-off titanium projects. We also made titanium wheelchair parts for a few wheelchair manufacturers.
Then, in the late 1990’s, we began to wonder whether it would make sense to apply our knowledge of customization to wheelchairs. In other words, would a wheelchair frame that is fabricated to fit a single person make it perform better for that person? We knew it would fit better and be more comfortable, but would this ergonomic improvement make it easier to push? It turns out that it would. We now call this process TiFit.
