Thread: Push rims

  1. #1

    Push rims

    I'm quite interested in getting some of thos push black rims.Unfortunately, I just found outthat the company does no ship to the United Kingdom.Luckily, I know someone in the united state who could send them to me.
    I'm a little unsure about the measurements.The new wheelchair I am getting has 24 inch wheels and they manufacture 24 inch Bush black rims.Do think I will hav any problems fitting them?I'm not sure ifthe screw threads are the same.Any advice would be very much appreciated

    Or try ByArwin here on the sites P/M.

    He got in a bad ATV wreck month or so ago, so he could be under the weather.

    I spoke to him the other day on the phone and he seemed fine. Actually I ordered a set of the Pushblack handrims over the phone because his online order form wasn't working. I had exchanged a few emails with him before that with no problems.

    Being in the same situation asyour market, really helps!

    I have no Idea just how many people I've told about them. All my former OT's AND PT's like them and are looking into them for a few people now.

    Can somebody sum up how good these rims are and how much difference they make to a quadriplegic pushing the wheelchair.

    Alot! C5/6 and I can almost push 1 handed on a flat floor. I use to use tubing wrapped around my vinyl rims, to get traction. Theses are 10 gajillion times better. If you nick or cut them, there's no edge to cut yo, as it's soft.

    The BEST thing I've bought in ALONG time. Even better than a stripper! which is really high up there for me!

    You will not regret buying them. Yes they seem pricey, but price verses usefulness is well worth it.
