Product Description:

Magicwheels® are all-mechanical wheelchair hubs that use a patented two-geared drive technology specifically designed for manual wheelchairs. Magicwheels® can be adapted to fit most manual wheelchairs. There are 10 different handrim options which allow for use on both 2- and 4-speed models. Each wheel has an easy-to-use shifting mechanism that allows users to switch gears with minimal effort.

Magicwheels® employ two gears: high and low. In high gear, Magicwheels® moves like a normal wheelchair wheel. But, when shifted into low gear, your wheelchair becomes twice as easy to push and can be used to easily climb ramps, hills, door jams and any other types of incline. Low gear is also great for navigating thick carpet, uneven grass or gravel and most other uneven terrain. Additionally, you can use the Magicwheels® braking feature while in low gear. This braking feature allows for 50% less force than is usually required to stop. This feature substantially increases the braking power you have with no extra strength required.

Magicwheels® also have a hill-holding feature. On an incline, the hill-holder stops the wheelchair from rolling backwards between pushes, thus alleviating the need to surge your wheelchair while climbing. The hill-holding feature can also be overridden so the user can back down or turn around on an incline.

There are no batteries or motors. Magicwheels®  easily adapts to fit most manual wheelchairs Adds no width to a wheelchair with standard spokes and the added weight to your chair per pair of wheels with standard handrims is less than 10 lbs. Provides 50% easier pushing, has automatic hill-holding feature, plus added braking power when descending. A popular 4-speed double handrim is offered as an option.
