QUICK AND RESPONSIVE. PROTECTS THE SHOULDERS FROM INJURY.
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 relieve 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.
Research studies have shown that rowing/pull propulsion are vital sports training tools for strengthening shoulder & back muscles to prevent injury and improve cardiovascular output. HX wheels protect your shoulders so you can train/exercise without worrying about push-related injuries.
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 HX is right for you.
