Glide Suspension Fork
As wheelchairs roll forward, their front wheels are the first to meet the bumps in their way. The Glide is designed to maximize vibration dampening in both horizontal and vertical directions, thus minimizing vibration transfer to the consumer. The Glide is available in dual and single-sided fork designs and comes in three different durometers (elastomer hardnesses) based on rider weight. Currently available on new TiLite chairs — Out-Front is seeking more OEM partners — the Glide was invented and tested by Human Engineering Research Laboratories, a joint venture of the University of Pittsburgh and the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System.
