ROW PROPULSION WHEELS SERIES
REVOLUTIONARY DESIGN. SUPERIOR BIOMECHANICS. THE RIGHT WAY TO ROLL.
Rowheels' REV WHEELS are unlike anything you have ever experienced! The pull-based propulsion used is a first of its kind and minimizes factors that contribute to shoulder injury & pain. Whether you choose the quickness and responsiveness of the REV-HX or the ease of use of the REV-LX, you will use and strengthen shoulder & back muscles neglected by standard push wheeling and experience posture improvements.
Rowheels overcome many of the shortcomings and inefficiencies associated with standard push propulsion and does it without the need for bulky levers or heavy batteries and motors. Using larger muscles and better mechanics, improving posture and negating the damaging shoulder forces, common to pushing, reducing the risk of developing upper body injuries/pain which, over time, can lead to reduced mobility, activity, and independence.
Strengthen upper back & shoulder muscles which are actively engaged in rowheeling ( neglected or underused with push wheeling) and play a vital role in maintaining shoulder health, proper posture and facilitating self-transfers.
Pull propulsion (rowheeling) uses healthier mechanics. Up to 4x as many muscles are active in rowheeling versus push wheeling, with the workload being shared between larger, more capable muscles and virtually eliminating the shoulder joint forces that lead to shoulder pain and injury in over 50% of wheelchair users.
Rowheeling actively engages the main back muscles that retract the scapulas (shoulder blades), leading to proper positioning of shoulders and back and minimizing the harmful effects associated with the all too common “sunken chest ” posture of wheelchair users.
+HEALTH & FITNESS
Actively using larger upper back muscles during rowheeling has the long-term possibility of increasing user endurance and stamina given the higher cardiovascular requirements of these muscles. Maintaining healthy activity levels in wheelchair users is crucial for overall health and quality of life.
Rowheels' REV wheels were designed to take advantage of the larger and more capable muscles used in a rowing motion. Our gear system makes this possible while also increasing responsiveness on the HX or making it much easier to propel on the LX while allowing for our enhanced braking system.
DESIGNED TO FIT RIGHT IN
How you fit and feel in your chair is very important. That's why we have made sure REV wheels can be customized and adjusted to meet most users individual needs.
Currently,REV wheels are compatible with most models of wheelchairs from Quickie, TiLite, Invacare/Top End, Colours, Motion Concepts, Per4Max and Ki Mobility. Is your chair not listed or want to see how our frame clamp mounts to a chair frame?

REV wheels can be cambered up to 4 degrees. Camber improves lateral stability, protects your hands when pushing in tight areas and reduces strain on shoulders.
JOIN THE REVOLUTION
"The magic is in the “rowing” or pulling motion... The result is overall easier propulsion, with less immediate fatigue and better joint health over the years....once you try Rowheels, you will understand a simple reality: they work extremely well."
