Pressure Relief for Life

Tilt-in-Space Wheelchairs

Tilting wheelchairs have a seat-back angle that is maintained as the seating system rotates around a fixed or sliding pivot point.

Tilting a wheelchair versus Reclining a wheelchair; which one is more comfortable? The answer to that question should be left for the patient or user to decide, as we all define comfort in our own way.

However, it remains a fact that using a tilt wheelchair offers proven pressure relief on the rear as shown in the pressure charts. This is accomplished through the redistribution of the pressure to the user’s back, shifting it away from the posterior locations. The user’s center of gravity is redistributed by rotating the axis where the person sits.  A reclining wheelchair provides a sole pivot point from the unit’s back cane to its seating frame. Our VIP-515 features the ONLY lightweight folding adult tilt in space feature in the world starting at mere 34 lbs in weight.

Shown below are two categories provided for your review.  The VIP-515 Tilt Wheelchair models (left as shown) and MVP-502 V-Shape Reclining Wheelchair (right as shown). Both feature patented components within the wheelchair design demonstrating comfort and the highest level of craftsmanship, available in a Tilt or Recline option with a choice between transport or manual propel for your mobility needs. Please consult your local Durable Medical Equipment provider or doctor to find out which one is the most appropriate for you or your loved ones.

Shopping a Tilt in Space vs. a Reclining Wheelchair

Which Karman wheelchair is right for me?
Both categories are designed to provide intensive comfort and care in mind with pressure relief. There are many benefits for zero gravity or a reduction of ulcers through constant pressure by sitting for prolonged periods of times. In this particular category, it would be very important to dive deeper with your medical professional to differentiate if seating harnesses or other assistive devices may be necessary. We do provide consultation and would suggest that you call us for questions. At Karman, we have over 100 models for manual wheelchairs to choose from.  In general, if you can propel yourself in a wheelchair, you will want the lightest most comfortable wheelchair available.  Learn more about all the categories available and then choose by product weight and budget.  Here are some categories and information for your review:

Transport Wheelchair

Transport wheelchairs are the perfect choice for transporting someone to and from the places you would love to travel with.  A transport wheelchair is generally narrower and lighter than a standard wheelchair, making it a good choice for tight obstacles and narrow entryways.  There are differences between our high end Crash Tested S-ERGO series transport wheelchairs and also economy grade products.  Some great choices include our ERGO LITE and S-115TP.  We also have a wheelchair made for traveling, TV-10B.

Standard Weight Wheelchair

Most standard weight wheelchairs starts at 34 pounds, a standard weight wheelchair is a great option when you need a wheelchair that will be not be frequently used; generally 3 hours or less per day and with infrequent transfers.  Our full selection is available from the most basic models with fixed legrests and armrests to wheelchairs that have optional elevating legrests and removable armrests.  There are also models with optional accessories to enhance your wheelchairFoam cushions and/or Gel Cushions provide for additional comfort.

Lightweight Wheelchair

With weights ranging from 25-34 pounds, our lightweight wheelchair is a great choice when you need a wheelchair that is more frequently used, when you need special options, or when you have your heart set on a specific frame and/or upholstery color combination.  This category covers it all, with lightweight wheelchairs at competitive prices.  These wheelchairs offer more options and we typically recommend that a comparison be done with the next step up category which is our ultralight weight wheelchairs where the ultimate mobility equipment and features are at its very best.

Ultralightweight Wheelchair

This is the category of wheelchairs where the best of the best resides.  With wheelchair weights as low as 14.5 pounds and available in both S-ERGO and simply super lightweight models, an ultralight weight wheelchair is for the full-time user who demands performance and for those who want the lightest wheelchair possible for ease of self propel and transport.  In this category, you will have a number of features never found on any competitors like standardize crash tests on S-ERGO models and tons of options and accessories not offered on other base categories in wheelchair options.

Active Wheelchair

Our ERGO ATX offers the finest in a combination of wheelchair manufacturing disciplines. These criterias includes but is not limited to maximum adjustability, rigidness, ultra lightweight, comfort, foldability, style and outstanding performance.  Our Ultralightweight wheelchair category takes zero compromise with our R&D department pushing the latest manufacturing techniques and capabilities and transferring them to you right on the streets.

Tilt / Recline Wheelchair

A reclining back or otherwise known as a "high back" wheelchair is a great option for those who spend the majority of their time in a wheelchair as it offers more positions to recline.  And a tilt wheelchair offers alternative positioning and pressure relief for those who are requiring further pressure relief for prolonged usage of a wheelchair.  Both our categories have effectively reduced weight of traditional competitors so keep in mind when shopping on price.

Heavy Duty Wheelchair

Our Bariatric Wheelchair has a maximum weight cap of 800 pounds, these heavy duty wheelchairs can accommodate nearly any user with a maximum seat width of 30" in width.  Karman carries a full range of heavy duty wheelchairs, from economical bariatric transport wheelchairs, to complex highly-configurable / custom modelsWe also have the lightest weight bariatric wheelchair in the industry for its seat width and weight cap.

Standing Wheelchair

Standing in a wheelchair is one of the most influential products we've designed and manufactured in our efforts to allow the mobility impaired to take their lives back into their hands.  We didn't stop by just allowing people to stand in a wheelchair; we made it the most competitive price product in its category driving economy into everyday house holds.  Read more on all benefits, funding sources, and finance options if you're interested in your wheelchair helping you to stand.
