Hi All,

We got several emails regarding our tetra push rims ?Curve L Tetra Grip? (former Curve Grip L) in the last days with recuirring questions. Hopefully I can answer those with following informations.

CarboLife push rims for tetrapelgics (?Curve L Tetra Grip? and ?Quadro?) offer a much bigger contact surface compared to standard coated push rims. The benefits are:
  • better performance and efficiency
  • greater control over the wheelchair (for pushing and breaking)

We recommend for C4 ? C5/6 tetraplegics (without triceps function) our brand new ?Quadro?push rims (available from march/april 2016, official product launch on NAIDEX Show in Birmingham/UK in April). C5/6 (with at least less triceps function) ? C8 tetrapelgics should use our ?Curve L Tetra Grip? push rims. Both patented push rim profiles are special shaped according to the typical hand position of tetraplegics while propelling (see picture below of our new Quadro push rim).

We use for our tetraplegic push rims the most robust and sticky available coating on the market ?Tetra Gripp? from the german company Tetra Equipment. Their push rims are known in North America as ?Q-Grips? from Out-Front (Out-Front is the exclusive North American distributor http://www.tetra-equipment.de/en/aff...alized-dealers).

Retail prices will be as follows:

  • Curve L Tetra Grip 350$/Pair + free standard shipping (promo price until the end of june 2016, regular 450$)
  • Quadro 350$/Pair + free standard shipping (promo price until the end of june 2016, regular 450$)

We will have an Online-Shop on our website www.carbolife.de from April on (relaunch website) with promo prices on all our products until the end of june 2016, also for our ergonomic push rims for paraplegics and unique carbon fenders. In the meantime you can request more information or place orders with promo prices to info@carbolife.de. Payment is via Paypal. We are also looking for dealers in North America.

Best regards,
