    • When fitting for a wheelchair physical therapists and testing specialists take footwear into account as they adjust the height and angle of footrests. Without the protection of shoes a wheelchair user's feet are exposed to the hard surface of the footplate, which can lead to painful and dangerous pressure sores, cuts, bruises, and broken bones. The Wheel Comfort Removable Padded Footplate protects bare feet while maintaining proper balance and foot positioning. It attaches securely to the existing footplate with minimal effort and is lightweight, durable, and waterproof for ultimate versatility. 

    • Manufactures innovative products, such as wheelchair canopies, bags, cupholders, and trays.

    • The e-motion power-assisted wheel is mounted on the wheelchair in place of the manual wheels. The batteries are integrated in the wheel hub and can be removed from a sitting position. A sensor registers the propelling movement and activates the electrical motors.

    • The FreeWheel is the most innovative piece of adaptive equipment available. Once attached, the FreeWheel gently lifts your front casters off the ground turning you into a 3-wheel, all-terrain chair. 

    • The Glide is the only suspension fork that maximizes vibration dampening in both horizontal and vertical directions and minimizes vibration transfer to the body of the rider.

    • Kenda has created high-quality tires providing a smoother ride, better grip, and longer tire life, all while beating the toughest industry safety standards.

    • MAGICWHEELS are wheelchair wheels with a geared hub that provides a 2:1 mechanical advantage and an automatic hill-holder. They are great for climbing hills, ramps, curb cuts, or door thresholds. Unlike power assist wheels, MAGICWHEELS 2-gear wheelchair wheels have no batteries and no motors. You only use the geared technology when you need it, engaging it with a simple click of the hub. The remainder of the time your wheelchair works similarly to how it does with conventional wheelchair wheels installed.

    • The folding wheel was originally conceptualized as a folding bicycle wheel by Duncan Fitzsimmons when he was a graduate student at the Royal College of Arts in London. After receiving public attention and calls from the wheelchair community telling him that this concept would be invaluable to wheelchair users, he redesigned it as a wheelchair wheel.

      Maddak further developed the wheel after careful consultation with the community, and are happy to introduce MORPH™ Wheels–the world’s first ever foldable wheelchair wheel! 

    • NuDrive is the innovative new lever-drive propulsion accessory for manual wheelchairs, providing more mobility and improving physical well-being. With NuDrive you don't need to propel your chair by gripping the wheel rims by hand; instead, you can propel yourself forwards, backwards, and brake, simply by pushing the levers.

    • Out-Front provides a suite of handrim choices that vary in their ergonomics, coating surfaces, and functionality. There is no "best" option for everyone. Instead, you have the freedom to choose your handrim based on your preferences.

      •The Natural-Fit has a contoured thumb piece and an oval component that together create an optimal ergonomic grip. Size and coating options allow for better customization.

      •The Surge is an all-in-one, single component handrim with a Gription Strip, a rubber strip that goes all the way around the top surface of the oval for increased friction while leaving the side surface smooth for braking.

      •The Q-Grip is a fully-coated handrim that sets itself apart due to its unique coating surface and superior durability.
