Wheelchair Wheels

Definition : A wheel is a circular component that is intended to rotate on an axial bearing and are used to support and to provide a means of moving the wheelchair. These wheels can be rotated manually by the user or power-assisted with batteries. Wheelchair wheels are typically between 22 to 26 inches (56 to 66 cm) in diameter. Smaller wheels, typically between 3 and 8 inches (7 to 20 cm) in diameter and between 1 and 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) in width, are sometimes called casters. Wheelchairs typically have two sets of wheels, 2 larger ones and 2 smaller ones. The wheels can be placed on the front, middle, or rear of the wheelchair, depending upon its design.

Colours in Motion Inc

Company Type: Parent

Colours Wheelchairs has announced the launch of the The Bite Laced Wheels. This innovative wheel combines style and technology in a way possible only for Colours. On standard wheelchairs, a brake is mounted onto the Wheelchair Frame and must be engaged to secure the wheelchair. The frame-mounted brake adds weight, is unattractive and can be difficult for people with limited hand mobility to engage. In addition, frame mounted brakes can get in the way of transfers, can pinch fingers and can be a danger to wheelchair users' hands.
