Our process is rooted in a philosophy known as "human-centered design." This customer-centric approach involves iterative prototyping and careful consideration of the entire product experience. We didn't want to just make a pretty product. We wanted to make a product that met important user needs. We wanted to make a product that would help people achieve great things.
Over 30% of GRIT Freedom Chair riders have never used a manual wheelchair before. Individuals with difficulty walking find that the GRIT Freedom Chair enables easier travel over long distances and rough terrain than their walkers, canes, or crutches. If this is your first wheeled mobility device, you might have some questions, and we're here to help.
Here at GRIT, we want to make sure you can customize your Freedom Chair to suit your needs, which is why we offer a wide variety of accessories in our shop. With so many accessories available, though, how can you be sure what is right for you? Well, we are here to help! Read on to find out about - ACS High Precision Freewheels
When I started experiencing progressive and debilitating physical symptoms around the time I turned 24, I wasn’t quite sure what the rest of my life would look like. I had always been very active, particularly enjoying outdoor activities, and I saw everything I loved being taken away from me. I had to leave the job I had at the time because I couldn’t safely and adequately perform my duties anymore. I was waiting for answers and treatment for my illness, but doctors remained baffled. Eventually, I decided I couldn’t wait anymore. I didn’t want to miss out on life and all it had to offer, so I started to research adaptive outdoor athletics. During this research period I discovered the GRIT Freedom Chair.
We know that people come in all shapes and sizes and we've done our best to make the GRIT Freedom Chair comfortable for everybody.
Our new box is 2" shorter in length and 4" shorter in height, bringing our combined sum to 126", eliminating the large package surcharge and cutting our shipping costs in half! We're excited to start passing these savings to you, our customers, immediately. We've reduced our shipping charge from $200 per chair to $99!
We partner with three different manufacturers, all in the United States, to make the custom parts of the GRIT Freedom Chair (check out this this earlier blog post to learn more about this production methodology). We order all of our bike parts, fasteners, and other parts from national distributors. Everything gets shipped to our Boston office, where it's inspected, catalogued, and put on the shelf, where it waits to be assembled.
