ROWHEELS wheelchair is actually a therapeutic wheelchair, the wheelchair is a gym, a therapist and a posture specialist rolled into one device and it has a unique pulling action that reduces shoulder related pain and injury.
ROWHEELS comes in three different designs, the wheelsets, ultra-lightweight wheelchairs, and revolution 1.0 wheelchairs. They all come with a unique and standard braking assistance feature. All you need to do is push the hand-rim towards your body to engage the brakes and stop your wheelchair when the need arises.
One thing that makes the ROWHEELS system stand out is its pull on the hand-rims features. The pull action uses more capable muscles in your upper back and shoulders which help reduce the risk of shoulder-related injuries. This feature particularly made Rowheels the first therapeutic technology wheelchair ever made. The wheelchair also gives you the option to push when need be. ROWHEELS wheels are designed in a way that allows you to push with its tire sidewalls. It has a low-gear technology that requires 25% less effort than a traditional wheelchair. There is a maintenance-free reduction gear built into the wheel hub of the ROWHEELS.
The ROWHEELS therapeutic ergonomic rowing motion help reduces/eliminates pains, aches, and injuries to the shoulders, builds upper body core strength, improves posture, improves breathing and fitness. Perhaps this is why it is a gym on its own.
The ROWHEELS Revolution 1.0 is lightweight, the wheelchair allows you to quickly perform your daily tasks without your back being weighed down by the weight of your wheelchair. Not only is the ROWHEELS Revolution 1.0 lightweight, but it is also portable, making it ideal for those who travel a lot.
Medically, the ROWHEELS product retracts the scapula, minimizing the risk of impinging the rotator cuff and improves user posture.
