A low-gear wheel for those who find pushing a manual chair difficult
* Reduces drag on shoulders and eases biomechanics of pushing
* Eases movement over smaller obstacles like rug edges, uneven ground etc.
* Easy Wheel's gear provides twice the power and can be used with most wheelchairs
Drive wheels have a low mechanical gear, which is influenced by the push rim. This creates an easier forward motion at a ratio of approximately 2:1 and a reduced transport distance of approximately half for every thrust compared with an ordinary wheel. So you can get twice as far off the same push
Currently we have the bracketry to fit the Easy Wheel onto Ki Mobility Wheelchairs, the Melrose, Stallion, Condor chairs. The Easy Wheel will fit on both fixed and folding chairs.
You can use any style of tyre with the Easy Wheel.
Sizes : 20"; 24" wheels
The Easy Wheel adds approx 4kg to the weight of the chair.
Recommended for clients who tire easily but are still active in their chairs conditions such as MS, or those with tired joints.
