EASY TO PROPEL. PROTECTS THE SHOULDERS FROM INJURY.
Similar to pulling on a lever, 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 LX wheels a breeze to propel!
REV-LX 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.
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.
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. LX wheels protect your shoulders so you can train/exercise without worrying about push-related injuries.
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 LX is right for you.
