A DESIGN SOLUTION FOR A SPECIFIC PROBLEM
STYLITE’S EXPERTISE IS IN ONE-OFF UNIQUE DESIGN SOLUTIONS
One of the great things about working at Stylite is that you never know, from day to day, what challenge will await you when you arrive into work! Every wheelchair user has unique requirements and Stylite loves to build chairs to fit all sizes.
DESIGN2FIT goes one step further…
IT STARTS WITH YOU
At Stylite we start with you. Design2Fit is the concept – the wheelchair must adapt to what our clients need as opposed to making the clients adapt to standard chairs. Many of our existing products have evolved from a design idea originally presented by a client.
UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM
Moulding a seat to fit the user size is all part of the normal business at Stylite, but when clients arrive for initial measurements, we often get to hear about additional problems they face.
The problem: A mum explained that every time she went to push her child’s wheelchair across the road, he would get nervous and automatically reach out to catch the wheel, stopping the chair. She worried that he would hurt his hands and it also made crossing roads very difficult for her!
The solution: Stylite designed a separate wheel system that mum could click down for use when crossing roads. It automatically lifted the main wheels up and out of action so that when her child caught them, it didn’t stop the forward motion of the wheelchair and didn’t catch his hands. Problem solved!
WELCOMING THE CHALLENGE
Believing that anything is possible is key – where there’s a will there’s a way – and at Stylite we relish the challenge!

Traveling in Ireland I met a very special and happy girl, Sarah. She lives in Ireland. Sarah is able to walk small distances and needs every now and then a lot of heavy equipment for breathing. According the system she would get a full electrical wheelchair…. Due to her therapist and parents she was able to get a normal adapted wheelchair.
“It’s now 16 years since we bought my daughter Sarah’s first wheelchair when she was just 2 years old. Enable Ireland recommended Donal at Stylite Designs to us at that time and we wouldn’t think of going anywhere else since then. Donal is great – he really listens to us and more importantly he always listens to Sarah to make sure she gets what she wants.
