Arguably the greatest ever invention for the wheelchair!
The FreeWheel has to up there with the most useful devices ever made for a wheelchair. The FreeWheel is what you need to easily traverse grass fields, snowy roads and paths, enjoy hiking trails and safely glide down bumpy paths and curbs. You no longer have to sit on the sidelines, always ask for help, or miss the fun.
No more looking down at your casters worrying if you're going to come flying out of your wheelchair, the FreeWheel creates a whole new way of pushing that means you can enjoy your surroundings.
The FreeWheel opens up terrain not possible with a standard wheelchair
The FreeWheel comes with a clamp to allow easy storage while not in use
Easily attached, removed and stored when out and about
Lightweight and durable, the FreeWheel quickly clamps to the solid footrest of a rigid-frame wheelchair. When you are not using it, you simply store it on the bar on the back of your chair using the included ´perch´ attachment. If you have a folding frame wheelchair check out the Folding Adaptor that will allow the Freewheel to be clamped onto your chair.

The FreeWheel is one of those devices you should never be without if you are a manual wheelchair user. Whether you are an active user or need a little push, the FreeWheel will change your life. Everything from walking the dog/s, going to the shops, walking through the forest or just being in your garden, it just makes life that bit easier.

....Well I´m just back from a 2hr ´walk´ and it handled fantastically - over potholes, rubble, steep hills, grass, mud, gravel & curbs. If you´re looking for something that ´enables´ you to become much more Independant without the assistance of someone else...then this bit of kit is for you! Thank you Spokz! : )" (Posted on 27/06/2017)
- freewheel review
- Fantastic !
- Should have had 5 stars
One gripe - the steering detent knob at the front could be easily damaged by bumping into things (it's plastic), and if you have it set quite light - my preference - sooner or later it's likely to come unscrewed and, potentially, lost. That's why it hasn't got 5 stars - no-one in the UK seems to offer spare parts so replacing it could be a pain. A non-setting sealant should keep it in place. Or a strip of black duct tape.
