ROWHEELS AND THE VA
KEEPING OUR VETERANS HEALTHY AND ACTIVE
Rowheels are a registered Veterans Affairs vendor
WHY ROWHEELING IS THE BEST APPROACH TO MANUAL MOBILITY
ROWHEELING retracts the scapula and stabilizes the shoulder joint while stretching and resting the chest and anterior shoulder muscle that tighten from pushing overuse. Meanwhile it increases cardiopulmonary output, improves posture and strengthens the upper body.
Shoulder injuries are common in up to 70% of wheelchair pushers. Using ROWHEELS can help PROTECT newly injured veterans from these types of injuries while keeping them active, healthy and mobile.
Manual wheelchair users suffering from shoulder pain and injury can experience reduction in pain, eliminating the damaging impingement forces and poor mechanics that contributed to their injury. Our experience shows that most users with shoulder pain that switch to using Rowheels experience substantial reductions in shoulder pain within a short period of time. We have had users who were able to reduce or stop taking their pain medication within a few weeks.
ROWHEELS are quick-release, can be customized to meet our veterans needs and style/military branch. they are compatible with most ultralight wheelchairs including TILITE, COLOURS, QUICKIE, TOP END, INVACARE, KUSCHALL, KI MOBILITY AND PER4MAX.
