Rehasense will be debuting three new products at Naidex – PAWS, TRACKWHEEL and the Icon 35. There are three Power Assisted Wheelchair Systems (PAWS) models available: the Cruiser, City and Tourer.
The City has a 12” or 14” wheel and is designed primarily for use around town, while the Cruiser has a larger 16” wheel for rougher terrain. The off-road Tourer has a 20” wheel and 4” fat tyre for increased clearance and manoeuvrability. PAWS requires no frame alteration or additional add-ons to the wheelchair.
Weighing only 2.6kg, the TRACK WHEEL transforms a standard active wheelchair into an agile tricycle to enable wheelchair users to experience greater freedom. By attaching the 12” TRACK WHEEL, the wheelchair’s castors are raised, which slightly tilts the chair backwards, and by noticeably reducing the rolling resistance the user can enjoy increased speed, manoeuvrability and comfort.
At just 8.2kg, the ICON 35BX is the lightest wheelchair in the ICON range and features an ergonomic seat and back angle for a superb seating position. The ICON 35LX, which weighs only 9kg, is fitted with enhanced ergonomic seating, back upholstery and adjustable arm rests for increased support and pressure relief if required. Both models have a maximum user weight of 125kg. Standard features on the ICON 35BX and LX include swing away leg rests with release lever, stepwise brake control with cable, armrest (height adjustable on the LX) and carrying handle for transporting when folded.
