Wheelchair Wheels Review
Manual wheelchairs generally have only two pairs of wheels: one set is fitted to the front and rear of the wheelchair and the other to the top of the vehicle. Power wheelchair wheels are mounted on the axle and are mounted on a sprocket that is fitted to the back of it.
Front wheels are generally made up of a wheel with an axle, a rim, spokes, and a hub; rear wheels consist of the wheel axle and a spoke (or hand-rim), or sometimes no spoke.
A wheel can be either fixed or variable. A fixed wheel can be easily fixed to a frame using brackets. Wheel lifts are often fitted with adjustable bolts and allow it to be adjusted from a height. Wheel lifts are commonly designed to suit both manual and power wheelchairs. A lift system is usually fitted to enable the wheels to move upwards or downwards, or can also be attached for more flexibility in mobility.
Wheel lifts come in a wide range of styles and configurations, ranging from the simplest to the most complex. A simple lift is a simple rack and pinion system, whereby the wheels can be fitted either horizontally or vertically. These systems are ideal for wheelchairs that only need a straight path between floor supports.
Multi-step lifts are very popular. These are designed to be adapted to multiple users. Some multi-step lifts include a ramp, step board, and a fixed platform that can be folded into and stored when not in use. These are ideal if the wheelchair user has difficulty walking over uneven or slippery terrain. They are often custom-designed for power wheelchairs, but other manual wheelchairs can also benefit from multi-step lifts. They feature a ramp mounted onto the wheels or the back of the wheelchair that can be folded forward and stored, then folded back when not in use and the wheelboard folded underneath.
Wheelchairs should always be well maintained, so check regularly that the bearings and suspension are still in good condition. Wheelchair lifts are also available for commercial and industrial applications, to allow users to access buildings. Wheel chair lifts are also used in some schools, particularly for disabled students. They are now available as carriages for taxis and minivans, providing safe, comfortable, and convenient access to and from buses.
