ROWHEELS Revolution 1.0 Wheelchair FAQ

What sizes does the wheelchair come in?

The Revolution 1.0 is available in three seat width sizes; 16”, 18” and 20”

What is wheelchair seat width?

The wheelchair seat width is the measurement of the seat upholstery between the arm rests.

What is the importance of seat width?

It is important to choose the correct seat width because this will make the wheelchair more comfortable and make it easier to use the unique pulling action.

If the seat width is too narrow, the arms of the chair can put pressure on your hips and thighs. If the seat width is too wide, it will make using the hand-rims more difficult. It will also make the wheelchair more awkward to maneuver in confined spaces.

  • 16″ (narrow adult),
  • 18″ (average adult).
  • 20″ (wide adult).

To properly determine the correct width, sit on a solid surface and measure the widest part, be it hips or thighs. Add about 1 to 2 inches to that measurement for clearance.  Keep in mind other special seating accessories such as hip guides and abductors which might need a bit more width in the wheelchair seat.

Does the Revolution 1.0 come with a warranty in the USA?

The Revolution 1.0 comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. ROWHEELS will either replace or repair the wheelchair at our sole discretion.

How do ROWHEELS work?

ROWHEELS wheelsets and wheelchairs are manual wheelchair wheels that are geared at the center such that you pull or “row” to propel forward. Pulling on the handrims moves the wheelchair forward and pushing on the handrims moves the wheelchair backwards. Turning is similar to standard propulsion; to turn right you pull on the left handrim and to turn left you pull on the right handrim.

Who can use ROWHEELS wheels?

The rule of thumb for determining whether a user can maneuver a ROWHEELS -equipped wheelchair is as follows:

►If you can go backwards on a standard manual wheelchair, you are a likely candidate for a ROWHEELS wheelchair or wheelsets.

►If have limited trunk control, proper set-up of your chair will be required. This will include moving your hips slightly forward for stability and making sure you are sitting comfortably in your chair and can touch the center of your wheels with your fingers.

I live in outside the USA, will ROWHEELS ship to me?

Rowheels will ship worldwide. Please contact us for international shipping quotes. Please be aware that the ROWHEELS manufacturer warranty only applies with the USA. If you need assistance, please contact the ROWHEELS support team.

Are ROWHEELS Wheels covered by insurance and the VA?

All ROWHEELS wheelchairs and wheelsets are covered by insurance, including Medicare, the VA, and private insurance through HCPCS billing code E2227. Reimbursement documents can be filled out by either your doctor/ medical staff or Physical Therapist. Insurance companies make their own determination on coverage or reimbursement based on individual consideration.
