A common health issue with rigid-framed wheelchair users is shoulder, wrist and hand injuries or strains. The FreeWheel™ dramatically reduces the incident of injuries as the longer wheel base, offered by the FreeWheel, reduces resistance and drag when rolling over broken sidewalks, curbs, carpet, gravel, dirt, grass, and snow.
Increased mobility means better overall physical health for the wheelchair user. Instead of sitting on the sidelines, or using an electric wheelchair, FreeWheel users improve their strength and endurance due to living an active lifestyle.
The FreeWheel is used by individuals to help them get from home to work, to their children’s soccer games, to being used in the push part of a triathlon. Instead of living a sedate, inactive and unhealthy lifestyle, they are out getting the exercise they need to maintain and improve their health.
