Safety and mobility in a wheelchair – even in winter on snow and ice? It is now possible with Wheelblades S!
Wheelblades are small attachments made to help wheelchair users operate in snow or sand conditions. They are small, high-end skis that are fixed to the front wheels of your wheelchair in a simple but solid way. Never get stuck in snow again with Wheelblades!
How do wheelblades work?
Wheel blade skis are made to improve the wheelchair support and prevent it from sinking in snow or sand by increasing the contact surface. This helps evenly distribute the pressure onto the ground, allowing the blades to run over the ground with very little pressure. The runners move along the ground with very little friction: even larger irregularities in the terrain can be easily navigated!
To ensure that the tip of the ski always points forward, the binding was deliberately positioned in the front part of the ski. Stability while in motion is provided by two channels on the bottom of the Wheelblades that compress the snow and let you glide as if on rails.
How to use Wheelblades?
Wheelblades are a simple yet extremely efficient attachment for your wheelchair. They are made to be easily installed and removed and can be fixed to your front wheel in 4 easy steps:
- Put the Wheelblades on the ground in front of your chair
- Lift your wheelchair slightly and align it with the first Wheelblade
- Insert the front wheel into the ski’s fixation
- Lock the ski in place and you are ready!
Simply repeat the same steps for both wheelblades and you will be gliding on snow in no time!
