Innovative push-pull wheelchair accessory to provide mobility, rehabilitation and leisure activities for much more disabled people than today

Project description

An extra push and pull for wheelchairs

Assistive technology has come a long way in the last few years, greatly improving the quality of life of disabled people. Wheelchairs have become lighter, stronger and more durable with many types to suit every need. The EU-funded STRINGHANDBIKE project is developing an innovative attachment for the manual wheelchair. Combining mobility with therapeutic qualities, an extra wheel is connected to a front wheel adapter fitted to the wheelchair. The handlebar propels the bike by pushing and pulling it with a natural rowing motion. Long or short movements of the arms can roll the handbike. The project plans to commercialise their product Stringhandbike directly, targeting disabled communities.
