Folding Wheelchair ADAPTOR

Folding Wheelchair Adaptor

Over the last 4 plus years the FreeWheel® Wheelchair Attachment has been changing the lives of wheelchair users around the world allowing them to get off the beaten path and explore. The down side was only individuals with rigid frame wheelchairs were able to take advantage of the increased mobility associated with  the FreeWheel.

"Since the initial release of the FreeWheel we have had thousands of folding wheelchair users asking, and in some cases pleading, for us to come up with a      way for the FreeWheel to work on their chairs,” explains Patrick Dougherty, inventor and owner of FreeWheel.

"It is pretty exciting to now be able to say ‘YES!’ to all those people,” continues Dougherty.

Over the last 2 years Dougherty, with his twin brother Mike, have worked to design an easy-to-use product that will allow folding wheelchair users to go through grass, over curbs, down dirt trails, like their counterparts in rigid frame chairs. Testing by individuals and at trade shows over the last 18 months has resulted in the FreeWheel Folding Wheelchair Adaptor [patent pending], a product they can be proud of.

"One big plus of the FreeWheel is the ease in which you can put it on and off,” explains Patrick. "We wanted to make sure that benefit was passed on with this new product.”

Attaching to the frame of the wheelchair, the Adaptor connects the two sides and adds strength and rigidity to support the use of the FreeWheel. Once the Adaptor is set up for a wheelchair, it only takes seconds to remove, by unscrewing two knobs on each side. The Adaptor does need to be removed from the wheelchair to fold the chair.

The much anticipated release of the FreeWheel Folding Wheelchair Adaptor [Adaptor] is set for March 1st. Pre-orders from international distributors throughout Europe, as well as South Africa, Australia, and the North American distributor are so strong the company has already placed their next order to be built.
