Wheelblades

Wheelblades

  • Invented by Swiss wheelchair user and outdoor enthusiast Patrick Mayer, Wheelblades offer chair users greater access in snowy conditions.
  • Attach to front casters of manual chairs; the greater width distributes the user’s weight and propulsion energy over a greater surface area to keep casters from sinking into the snow.
  • Two tracking channels on the underside compresses snow to ensure stability.
  • Can be easily and quickly attached to front wheels measuring 1.8 to 6 cm wide (approximately .71" to 2.36" wide).
  • Check out wheelblades.ch or Wheelblades’ American distributor for more information.
