Carbolife Gekko S Wheelchair Push Rim

Suitable for: Complete hand function and either complete or limited hand strength

Perfect ergonomics and excellent grip with low weight make the Gekko a unique, revolutionary handrim.

The fully integrated, robust and replaceable silicone strip ensures excellent pushing characteristics of the handrim and offers unparalleled pushing comfort without leaving marks on your skin.

In addition, the anodised, low-friction surface on the sides reduces heat generation when braking.

We recommend the Gekko S to users with small hands and to children. With these handrims children learn how to push correctly from an early age.

Who are Carbolife?

“Improving the everyday mobility and quality of life of wheelchair users with the help of our products – this is what motivates us. With this goal in mind, we – four engineers and friends – founded the Dresden based company CarboLife in 2013. The initial impetus towards giving serious thought to the mobility of wheelchair users came from joint activities and conversations with a wheelchair-riding friend.

These occasions opened our eyes for the development potential of handrims to improve the mobility of wheelchair users. Against this backdrop, we developed our CURVE handrim. It owes its perfect ergonomic fit to the imprints we created using modelling clay and which ideally represent the natural anatomy of the hand.

Striving towards our goal to offer every wheelchair user the handrim tailored to their individual needs, to date we have developed a range of innovative handrims in close cooperation with wheelchair users, physiotherapists and specialist dealers”.

Which Push Rim is right for me?

Carbolife have produced a range of push rims to cover those with full upper body function to those of us with limited hand and arm function. 

The push rims range from bare aluminium, to the hybrid Gekko which has a rubber strip along the top surface, to the fully coated for those with limited dexterity.  Along with these variations in surface coating there are also various profile types to suit different hand sizes and shapes.

Do Carbolife pushrims require any maintenance?

Dirt, hand cream etc. can "glaze" the Tetra coating. It is therefore important that the handrims are cleaned regularly (if possible at least once a week) with a damp cloth + grease-dissolving cleaning agent. If the slippery layer of grease is difficult to remove, commercial disinfectants can also be used - also in combination with a scouring pad - to get the handrims clean again. This should make your handrims very grippy again.

The choice of cleaning method depends on the degree of soiling. So the normal weekly cleaning with grease dissolving detergent and if that doesn't work, disinfectant or isopropyl alcohol also in conjunction with a scouring pad.
