Curve L Tetra-Grip

£350.00

A pair of Curve L Tetra-Grip push rims.

Description

Who are the CURVE TETRA GRIP push rims suited for?

  • For Tetraplegics with triceps function and
  • Non-Tetra wheelchair users with complete hand function but little hand strength.

What are the benefits of the CURVE TETRA GRIP push rims?

Being larger than conventional round profiles, this innovative profile provides tetraplegics who have triceps function with a gripping surface optimised for exerting considerably more pressure on the push rim.

As a result, propelling the wheelchair along a flat road and especially uphill:

  • requires less physical effort
  • is much gentler on the joints
  • ensures better and more secure wheelchair handling
  • making riding and steering safer as well as more efficient.

Extremely durable anti-slip coating,

When braking, the larger gripping surface helps to distribute the pressure much better and thus reduces heat generation.

What is our recommendation in terms of profile size?

Generally, we recommend using our CURVE L TETRA GRIP handrim to all tetraplegics with triceps function.

(If you have particularly small hands, or for a child, choose Curve Tetra Grip instead of Curve L Tetra Grip).

Curve L Tetra-Grip push rims are made by CarboLife Technologies in Dresden, Germany.
