Want a fun, fast, and easy to use alternative to the standard push-rim wheelchair? The Wijit is a great alternative lever drive and breaking system that replaces the wheels on your wheelchair and allows you to stop safer, turn sharper, climb higher, and go further; without sore shoulders, torn gloves or dirty hands.
The award-win ning Wijit delivers increased mobility and control. The Wijit’s levers are used to propel the wheelchair, instead of the standard push-rim. At the top of the lever is a shifter, to transition between forward, neutral, and reverse. The shifter is specifically designed for ease of use, even by those with impaired hand function.
The Wijit allows for the user to go twice as far with half the effort applied to standard wheelchairs. While the lever action conserves your energy, it also saves your shoulders from repetitive use injuries common to standard push-rim wheelchairs. The Wijit can be installed on most standard manual wheelchairs.
