Loopwheels has released information about two new products that it plans to launch at Rehacare this month.
The manufacturer, which aims to reduce vibration for wheelchair users, has announced Loopwheel Urban and Loopwheel Extreme.
Loopwheel Urban is a lightweight wheel with suspension, for everyday use whatever the surface, while Loopwheel Extreme is billed as “the definitive wheel if you love travelling faster on tracks and off road.”
It is a robust wheel which works at higher speeds for use with power attachments.
The springs for both wheels utilise hi-tech carbon composite materials, and are available in 3 spring strengths (Soft, Regular and Stiff), which allow customers to get the best comfort and health protection for their weight.
Both models weigh under 3lbs (1.36kg) per wheel and the manufacturer claims they remove far more vibration than any other brand of wheel.
Gemma Pierce, the firm’s managing director, said: “We have worked with some brilliant partners to create the most technically advanced wheel on the market that delivers exactly what customers need.
“We know that this wheel will make a huge difference to many wheelchair users, and have proved through our ISO2631 testing that Loopwheel Urban and Extreme will allow people to travel for more than twice the time than they can on Spinergy wheels before the vibration starts to cause them long term harm.
