Overview of the Catalyst 5 Ti
The Catalyst 5Ti is made from the ultra-light, high-strength Ti3AL/2.5 titanium alloy. This alloy has a strength to weight ratio twice that of 6061 series aluminum. You also have the option to upgrade the frame or cross brace to titanium. Ki Mobility’s uniquely designed cross brace provides the feel of a rigid frame wheelchair with the convenience of a folding frame. The Catalyst line offers a Dual Interlocking Cross Brace. This design creates a frame that locks together so that it minimizes unwanted movement and maximizes the energy transferred in each of your pushes making your push as efficient as possible. The “Between-The-Rails” Seat Design has the seat frame tubing setting side-by-side rather than stacking them atop one another. Instead of the weight of the user resting on the cross brace, the weight is transferred to the side frames. This prevents having to use heavy cross braces which add weight to other manufacturer’s wheelchairs.
Even how the Catalyst 5Ti folds and unfolds is unique. A Power X-Hinge is an extending link from the frame to the cross brace that expands and contracts when the frame is opening or closing. Another benefit of the Power X-Hinge is how it improves the frame’s structural integrity. The extending link provides the frame’s strength and rigidity rather than the seat upholstery. The Power X-Hinge works so well your Catalyst 5Ti will be just as solid with or without the seat upholstery.
Not to be forgotten are Ki Mobility’s one of a kind legrests. The legrests can be mounted or removed from any angle. No need to rotate all the way or all the way out like those from other manufacturers.
What Makes This Different
The finish of a titanium frame is unique in itself. There is no paint, just the natural titanium which is highly resistant to scratching and corrosion so your wheelchair will continue looking sleek and new for years. The Universal Axle Plate is a primary feature of the Catalyst 5Ti. The Universal Axle Plate allows you to select and set seat to floor heights in ½” increments. The Universal Axle Plates versatility also allows you to adjust your center of gravity over a 3” range. So can set your Catalyst 5Ti’s center of gravity at easy to respond or steady and stable. If you would like to decrease the weight of your Catalyst 5Ti by a half pound, you can add the option of a titanium cross brace.
Why We Like It
The Catalyst 5Ti is the same wheelchair of the Catalyst 5, but with a titanium frame replacing the aluminum. Titanium will provide better vibration dampening, a lighter weight, and a frame that is far better at preventing scratching and corrosion. A standard 300 lbs. weight capacity is also a tremendous for those needing more than the typical 250 lbs. capacity found on most ultra-lightweight wheelchairs.
