Track WheelMobility equipment supplier Rehasense UK has launched a lightweight front wheel attachment that can transform a standard manual wheelchair into an agile tricycle, enabling wheelchair users to experience greater freedom.

The 12-inch Track Wheel can be attached to the wheelchair frame, without the need for the tools, in a matter of seconds.

The wheelchair’s castors are raised which slightly tilts the chair backwards and by noticeably reducing the rolling resistance the user can enjoy increased speed, manoeuvrability and comfort.

Weighing a lightweight 2.6 kilograms, the attachment is currently available in single arm carbon with double arm aluminium or carbon due to come out later this year.

According to Rehasense UK, the single arm model has been designed for use with rigid wheelchairs while the double arm model will be for use with foldable wheelchairs featuring fixed integrated footrests.

Lee French, Managing Director, Rehasense UK commented: “We are always looking for innovative solutions to help our retailers and their customers and the Track Wheel is a fantastic example of this.

“We will be showcasing the Track Wheel, along with other new products, at the forthcoming British Healthcare Trade Show (stand 11) and look forward to gathering feedback from the trade, end users and OT’s.”

Rehasense specialises in innovative products for the rehabilitation market. The Rehasense product range includes mobility aids such as rollators and wheelchairs along with additional mobility aids.

The firm’s global head offices are located in Denmark and Germany, with the customer service and logistics centres based in Poland.

Having recently opened new purpose-built UK headquarters and warehouse facilities, Rehasense UK has spoken previously about its plans to launch several new products this year.
