Details

Wheelblades are miniature skis which attach to wheelchairs and strollers with one click, greatly improving the user's mobility in winter and during snowy and icy conditions. No matter how old or active you are, Wheelblades give more freedom and a whole new feeling in life.

Function

The wide Wheelblade contact surface distributes the wheelchair driver’s pressure evenly onto the ground and prevents the small front wheels from sinking into the snow. The blades run over the ground with very little pressure and have no problem smoothing out rough spots. In order for the ski to move in the desired direction at all times, the binding was moved to the front part of the ski. No matter where you want to go – the ski knows its way.

Two tracking channels on the Wheelblade underside compress the snow, ensuring stability; this is to say that you move along as if on rails. In addition to this the Wheelblades are very handy due to their low weight: A few seconds are enough to attach them to all commonly used wheels.

The adjustable clamp lock covers all wheel widths from 1.8 to 6 cm. As you can see, Wheelblades work real easy – simplicity combined with many advantages.

Benefits

All this amounts to the fact that Wheelblade transportation on snow matches moving along on tarmac – no more balancing out on large drive wheels required. This means that helpers have no problem pushing the wheelchair along when drivers feel exhausted.

In addition to this, objects may be carried on one’s lap and even minor snowy hills can be managed thanks to this practical form of support. Yet best of all is that new-found feeling of freedom – the knowledge that one’s physical disability is no longer amplified by structural obstacles: The feeling that you can enjoy the winter.

Key Features

·         Quick attachment requires little strength. Changing from blades to wheels can be done quickly and without problems.
·         Due to their handy size and low weight you can take your Wheelblades wherever you go.
·         High-end, robust materials make the skis shock- and fraction-proof.
·         Thanks to the adjustable clamp lock, Wheelblades can be used anywhere.
·         Wheelblades enable helpers for the first time to push wheelchair drivers in snow.
·         The market’s least expensive and least complicated solution.

Using your Wheelblades

It couldn’t be any easier: Put the Wheelblades on the ground, tilt wheelchair slightly, insert front wheels in the binding shaft, lock clamp and off you go (images 1 to 4). Please note: Wheelblades are not all powerful. If the surface is too soft or the snow too high, even large drive wheels meet their limits and you won’t be able to move despite your Wheelblades. Wheelchairs are subject to the same rules as road traffic – no winter tires, no mobility in snow. Add a pair of winter tires to your Wheelblades and shoot for a maximum of mobility.

This newfound freedom on snow requires some responsibility. Even if your Wheelblades run quiet and steady at high speeds, they are not a sports machine but a mobility aid and perform best and safest at walking speed.
