SoftWheel’s innovative in-wheel suspension technology can help reduce pain and provide a more comfortable ride.
How do SoftWheels work?
In-Wheel Suspension: 3 suspension arms are built inside the wheel and compress to absorb shocks
Rigid Rim: Wheel rim is always rigid & strong, while the suspension arms & hub compress to provide shock absorption
Automatic Actuation: Suspension arms automatically compress when encountering an obstacle or rough terrain, and remain rigid & strong over flat surfaces
360° Suspension: Arms are set equidistant around a central hub to provide shock absorption - no matter the angle of impact
Rapid Shock Reset: Suspension arms immediately reset and return the wheelchair – and rider, to a level ride
Shock Absorption That Actuates Only When You Need it
The wheel rim always remains rigid, while the suspension arms & hub shift to provide shock absorption only when needed – when encountering an obstacle or rough terrain. This leads to a smoother, more efficient ride over all types of terrain.
Regular Wheel vs. SoftWheel
Going down curbs with SoftWheel
Whole body vibrations are a health concern for wheelchair riders
Long-term exposure to vibrations has been demonstrated to have a negative impact on people’s health & comfort
SoftWheels Can help reduce back & neck pain, and decrease fatigue at the end of the day
Fewer vibrations are therefore transmitted to the rider, leading to a smoother, more comfortable ride.
SoftWheels keep the rider steady while going over bumps and remains stable & rigid over flat terrain
SoftWheels are more energy efficient, helping to maintain forward momentum, which can reduce fatigue.
SoftWheels absorb shock & vibrations on all types of terrain, providing maximum cushioning
SoftWheel Reduces Vibrations
The innovative suspension & damping technology disperses the impact energy, thereby shortening the impact duration and shock magnitudes transferred to the rider. Fewer vibrations are therefore transmitted to the rider, leading to a smoother, more comfortable ride. SoftWheels are more energy efficient, helping to maintain forward momentum, which can reduce fatigue.
