ROWHEELS, a leading developer of innovative manual mobility and wheelchair technology, has some big plans to disrupt the wheelchair industry, which is predicted to hit $5.4 billion by the year 2022. ROWHEELS plans to reinvent traditional wheelchair products and introduce something new.
The company has just unveiled its latest product: ROWHEELS Revolution 1.0, the world’s first production wheelchair equipped with a new patented pull-wheel technology.
The company said that it has developed a new reverse propulsion wheel technology, which can prevent body pains and injuries in wheelchair users. The new wheelchair has already passed quality tests. It also went into various clinical studies, with the results confirming that the new wheelchair can improve the quality of life of wheelchair users.
The new ROWHEELS Revolution 1.0 has been described as a lightweight, foldable, portable and highly affordable wheelchair product. It will be made available in three seat options- 16, 18, and 20-inch seat options.
The new ROWHEELS wheelchair has been designed to help strengthen the upper body and reduce the risk of injuries (elbow, wrist, and shoulder), which is often caused by compression of the shoulder joint. It also allows better distribution of muscle use and more importantly, promotes good posture. In addition, it also equipped with a new gearing system, which allows the wheelchair users to go anywhere, even on challenging surfaces.
In selling this new wheelchair product, the company plans to use a direct-to-consumer model. The company plans to give wheelchair users a much better option at a very affordable price (for $999 only). The main goal is to remove the delays in taking orders and the high margins associated with the conventional reimbursement model.
As for the availability and pricing, the ROSWHEELS Revolution 1.0 will be officially launched in October. For more information about this new wheelchair, you can visit the company’s official website.
