ROWHEELS Wheelsets use the patented ROWHEELS reverse propulsion system which allows users to benefit from the biomechanics of pulling the handrims rather than pushing to go forwards. This unique pulling action is proven to eliminate the forces that lead to upper limb (shoulder, elbow, wrist) injury and pain which is experienced by over fifty percent of wheelchair users. The unique pulling action engages up to 4 times as many muscles using more capable muscles in the upper back and shoulders.
There are currently three model models:
REV-LX, REV-HX (currently discontinued) and REV-3
Similar to pulling on a lever, REV-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. Going up inclines, across carpets or over uneven terrain is substantially easier using ROWHEELS REV-LX wheels. If you have upper extremity weakness or reduced mobility, the REV-LX can keep you stay mobile and active. Click here to purchase your ROWHEELS REV-LX wheelsets.
REV-HX (Currently Discontinued)
REV-HX wheels are the fastest manual wheelchair wheels on the market. Using ROWHEELS patented technology, REV-HX wheels turn 30% faster than the handrim. This results in an extremely responsive and quick set of wheels. From popping a wheelie to turning, HX wheels do it quickly! Whether you are an athlete looking to train or a wheelchair user looking to relieve shoulder pain, improve posture, build stamina and upper body strength, the REV-HX is the answer.
ROWHEELS REV-3 wheels are our most affordable wheels ever. They are the same wheel that we mount to our own Revolution 1.0 wheelchair. The great value offered by the ROWHEELS REV-3 combined with the unique ROWHEELS pulling action make wheelchair mobility affordable and healthier.
