EXPERIENCE THE REV-LX DIFFERENCE!
Similar to pulling on a lever, REV-LX wheels are geared to provide users with a mechanical advantage that translates into a 25% reduction in effort/pulling forces when compared to standard push wheels. This makes REV-LX wheels a breeze to propel!
REV-LX wheels use Rowheels' patented reverse propulsion system which allows you to propel your chair by pulling back on the handrims, or as we like to say, by rowheeling! That means you benefit from the shoulder-friendly biomechanics of rowing which uses up to 4X as many muscles as pushing and recruits larger, more capable muscles in your upper back and shoulders resulting in a reduced risk of shoulder-related injuries.
When you combine the LX's mechanical advantage (25% less force required) with the superior biomechanics of rowheeling, the result is a set of wheels that make wheelchair mobility easier and healthier (less wear and tear on your shoulders) than ever before. Going up inclines, on carpets or through uneven terrain is substantially easier using REV-LX wheels. If you have upper extremity weakness or reduced mobility, the REV-LX can keep you mobile and active without having to rely on powered alternatives.
Like our high-performance REV-HX wheels, the REV-LX comes with Rowheels' unique braking system. Simply push the handrim towards your body to engage the brake pads against the wheel rim braking surface.
The REV-LX 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-LX will be available in 22", 24", 25" and 26" wheels sizes and users will be able to chose between a variety of tires, handrims and hub cap colors. Users will also be able to choose between a variety of tri-hub colors and graphics.
The idea and original design for Rowheels came from the company's CTO, himself a C-5 quadriplegic. The REV-LX's meet his original intent in making wheelchair mobility easier and more accessibly for those with reduced upper body strength and/or functionality.
There are countless examples of quadriplegics who PULL their wheelchairs backwards up inclines because it is easier for them and the motion is less strenuous on their shoulders. The REV-LX makes this possible 100% of the time and with Q-grip™ handrims available as a standard option, REV-LX are poised to become the propulsion system of choice for quads who use a manual wheelchair!
Rowheels' REV-LX 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-LX is right for you.
+ Insurance companies make their own determination on coverage or reimbursement based on individual consideration.
