    Unexpected Excellent Workout

    After pushing and being pushed in my chair all over the soccer fields using a FreeWheel wheelchair attachment I find that the bumpes and balance works my torso in a very helpful way. It's almost as effective as skiing! Pat

    Hi Mom and Wheelin,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3AFsyDgOFw

    Here's a clip of Saturday.

    And here's a clip with more info:

    The FreeWheel tm wheelchair attachment is something I've been working on for over a year and I'm very excited to show how easy getting out on trails, grass and gravel can be. Also, The other day in the yard I could pick up dog poop because I could roll around. Talk about fealing adequate!

    Anyway, I have been taking orders only here and building basically custom units. My goal is to setup production to bring the price down even lower!

    You can email me at;

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Neat little invention there. I did notice "manual" is misspelled in second advertisement video.

    How well does that work on loose/soft dirt? I could use something to help me get around at the lake.

    amarillogal, I've been testing two different tire designs. I is a 12" bicycle tire and one is a solid foam wheel. The solid foam wheel impressed me because its light and narrow. And it has less rolling resistance on many surfaces. City trecking, it'd say it is best. The bicycle tire is wider and heavier, but not heavy. It glides over grass and gravel (and snow) better. It feels soooo good to coast over grass, for example, when I used to dread the inching along syndrome!

    As users report back to me I really am surprised to hear their comments. "I played frisbee golf for the first time!" and " I can't imagine not using this!"

    Another coment, " I can't afford not using this!"


    I say, "Stop it some more!"

    I've found that going to the lake for fishing or watercraft has been a ball with a FreeWheel.

    Let me know if you have any questions, Pat
