Wheelchairs don’t seem to change much over the years, and fresh designs that do come out tend to focus on improving the experience of the people sitting in them. Yet, the person in the wheelchair is often not the only user and whoever is pushing it can benefit from improved ergonomics.
Wheelchairhandles is a new patented product that slips over traditional horizontal handles and gives the pusher a more comfortable, ergonomic experience. The handles can be grabbed in a number of ways and the company believes they make pushing a wheelchair so much easier that a photo of a wheelchair parked on a sandy beach graces the product’s website.
