Folding Wheelchairs - Compatibility
Tubing Compatibility - Round horizontal tubing may be 1" or 1-1/8" in diameter

Motion Composites wheelchairs, namely the Helio C2 and A7, have a wider diameter bar and will need a Motion Composites Folding Wheelchair adaptor, available in the options above.
Standard wheelchair frames have a distance of 4-3/4" from the top of the footrest to the floor. If your chair has a greater distance, please choose the correct measurements from the option dropdown above.
How to choose the right custom option:
- If your footplate is from 4 1/2"-6 1/2" from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 5 1/2 (freewheel)
- If your footplate is from 5 1/2"-7 1/2" from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 6 1/2 (freewheel)
- If your footplate is from 6 1/2"-8 1/2" from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 7 1/2 (freewheel)
- If your footplate is from 7 1/2"-9 1/2" from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 8 1/2 (freewheel)
*For a child, pick the footplate distance that allows some room for growth.
*If you have a folding wheelchair, disregard footplate measurements and refer to the folding wheelchair compatibility list above
Flip Up Foot Plate
If your chair has a flip-up foot plate, you will need to convert the footplate to an angle-adjustable footplate by purchasing one from the manufacturer. But, fear not! Living Spinal can make that process easy for you. If you also have a TiLite chair, simply select TiLite angle adjustable conversion kit in the options, type in your wheelchair's serial number, and it includes everything you need to get the Freewheel to work. If you have a brand other than Tilite, give us a ring at 619-810-0010 and we'll help you get the angle adjustable footrest ordered so you can use the Freewheel.
TiLite Angle-Adjustable Footplates
Do you have a Tilite Rigid chair? Does it have an angle-adjustable footplate? You'll need a special part called the P102 clamp kit. The picture to the right shows the issue that is sovled with this clamp. Simply put, you just need to switch out the clamp that's already on your wheelchair with the P102 so it will work with the Freewheel.
