Three Rivers-Out Front
Oval handrim helps improve traction
Three Rivers' Surge is a lightweight, all-in-one oval handrim with a Gription strip that improves traction on every push. Two sizes (the Surge and Surge LT) allow users to choose the best fit for their hand. The smooth side surface of the oval means no-burn braking. The handrim does not add any width to a wheelchair and can be mounted in the close-in or wide mount tab positions. It is currently available for 24- and 25-inch wheels.
Wheelchair back is lightweight, easy to install
The Invacare Versair back provides comfort and support for optimal positioning when standard sling upholstery does not meet a patient’s needs. The alternating tension straps can be adjusted taut in the lower back for optimal sacral support or relaxed in the upper back to accommodate a posterior pelvic tilt thoracic kyphosis. The back is lightweight, easy to install and uses spacer fabric upholstery for comfort and to wick away heat and moisture. It does not need to be removed when folding the wheelchair for transport.
