KEEPING KIDS HEALTHY AND ACTIVE
Rowheels' pull-based propulsion technology can eliminate the factors contributing to shoulder and wrist injuries in up to 70% of long-term wheelchair users. Kids driving a chair with Rowheels pull on the handrim to go forwards (backwards by pushing) using their larger and more capable back and shoulder muscles. The bio-mechanics of Rowheeling protects their developing upper bodies from injury and poor posture, strengthening their strengthening their back and shoulder muscles, keeping them healthy and active!
When deciding on what mobility device a child should use, there are various pros and cons that need to be weighed. Usually, using a manual wheelchair is the best option (when possible) given that it allows kids to stay active and mobile. Unfortunately, all that mobility comes at the risk of degenerative repetitive stress injuries due to shoulder impingement or wrist compression. Using Rowheels makes both of these issues much less likely and ,n the case of shoulder impingement, can virtually eliminate it. No other device on the market can improve posture, use all the upper back and shoulder muscles in a stable and ergonomic fashion, strengthen, and provide for daily exercise through self propulsion while eliminating or minimizing the risk of upper body injury.
LX Wheels Make Wheelchair Use Easier
REV-LX wheels are designed to reduce the force needed to propel a wheelchair by 25% compared to standard wheels. Kids want to be able to participate in as many activities as possible and with REV-LX wheels, going up ramps/inclines or traversing rough terrain becomes an easier task for them!
Growth? Not A Problem
REV pediatric wheels are available in a 22” (489mm) wheel size but we understand that kids will grow. REV wheels are designed so the wheel rim size can be changed with a child’s growing needs. Just send us back the wheels and we can turn them into 24” or 25” wheels!*
Kid-Friendly And Compatible
REV-LX wheels are quick-release making them easy to take off and put on. Our latch clamp system makes engaging the reverse drive system as easy as pulling back on the handrims until the wheel’s engagement pin is captured by the latch.
