THE QUICKEST AND MOST RESPONSIVE WHEELS ON THE MARKET!
EXPERIENCE THE REV-HX DIFFERENCE!
REV-HX wheels are the fastest manual wheelchair wheels on the market. Using rowheels patented hub, REV-HX wheels turn 30% faster than the handrim. This resulted in an extremely responsive and quick set of wheels. From popping a wheelie to turning, HX wheels do it quickly!
REV-HX wheels use Rowheels' patented reverse propulsion system which allows users to benefit from the biomechanics involved in PULL propulsion (rowheeling), proven to eliminate forces that lead to shoulder-related injury and pain (common to +50% of wheelchair users) and uses up to 4X as many muscles as pushing; (most of which are underused in pushing but larger and more capable muscles in your upper back and shoulders) resulting in a more stable and health shoulder joint.
Whether you are an athlete looking to train and exercise or a wheelchair user looking to relive shoulder pain, improved posture, gain stamina and upper body strength, the REV-HX is the answer. With HX wheels you can achieve this without worrying about compromising or damaging your shoulders like you would using standard push wheels.
The REV-HX comes with Rowheels' unique braking system. Simply push the handrim towards your body to engage the brake pads against the wheel rim braking surface.
Research studies have shown that row and pull propulsion are vital sports training tools for strengthening antagonist shoulder and back muscles to help prevent injury and improve cardiovascular output (HX wheels have similar mechanical efficiencies as standard wheels with higher physiological demands).With the HX you can train and est your on court muscle while going about your day.
The REV-HX will be compatible with most models of manual wheelchairs from Quickie, TiLite, Invacare/Top End, Colours and Ki Mobility. If you have a chair from a different manufacturer, click below to see our COMPATIBILITY CHECK section.
The REV-HX will be available in 22", 24", 25" and 26" wheels sizes and users will be able able to chose between a variety of tires, handrims and hub cap colors. Users will also be able to choose between a variaty of tri-hub colors and graphics.
Rowheels' REV-HX wheels may be covered by insurance, including Medicare, the VA, and private insurance through HCPSC billing code E2227+.If you have difficulty maneuvering your chair, which limits your functionality and independence OR suffer from shoulder pain (or are beginning to exhibit signs of shoulder injury), talk with your doctor or therapist to see if the REV-HX is right for you.
+ Insurance companies make their own determination on coverage or reimbursement based on individual consideration.
