The new durable, lightweight (under 5 lbs) FreeWheel quickly clamps to your existing rigid-frame wheelchair footrest and allows you to push over surfaces that would typically be impossible. With the FreeWheel you are ready to roll in seconds.
Strolling, exercising, hiking, or just checking the mailbox, is so much easier with the FreeWheel. Grass, curbs, and rough roads can be easily navigated to hep you in your quest for independence.
Built from strong, aircraft quality aluminium, the patented FreeWheel™ is designed to fit securely on most manual, rigid frame wheelchair footrests, giving a secure fit and excellent handling (footrests higher than 4.5" off the floor will require a custom frame).
The large front wheel has less resistance than small castors and makes it easier to roll on any surface, whether you are alone, or with a companion. A detent mechanism keeps the front wheel straight to improve stability and handling but, by applying slight pressure, it will release, allowing you to quickly and easily turn in any direction.
The FreeWheel™ comes complete with an attachment that locks onto the crossbar behind your seat back and holds your FreeWheel™ in place when you need to stow it.
