Rehasense UK’s new TRACK WHEEL front wheel attachment is designed to give wheelchair users the chance to experience greater freedom.
The attachment transforms a standard manual wheelchair into an agile tricycle capable of handling rougher terrain such as in the forest or on the beach.
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.
Weighing from only 2.6 kg and currently available in single arm carbon and later this year in double arm aluminium or carbon, the TRACK WHEEL adds very little weight to the existing wheelchair.
The single arm model has been designed for use with rigid wheelchairs while the double arm model will be for use with foldable wheelchairs featuring fixed integrated footrests. Attaching the TRACK WHEEL to the wheelchair frame requires no tools and the entire process takes a matter of seconds.
Lee French, Managing Director, Rehasense UK, said: “At Rehasense UK, we are always looking for innovative solutions to help our retailers and their customers and the TRACK WHEEL is a fantastic example of this.
“We will be showcasing the TRACK WHEEL along with other new products at the forthcoming BHTS (stand 11) and Naidex (stand H10) events and look forward to gathering feedback from the trade, end users and OTs.”
