The detachable wheelchair wheel

The detachable wheelchair wheel from trivida® allows wheelchair users to make an obstacle-free transfer – from and into the wheelchair – for the first time. People with restrictions of the upper locomotor system may still need assistance, but do not necessarily have to be lifted. A pioneering solution for more inclusion and barrier-free living.

A True Invention and a “World First”

Who might use trivida wheels and other benefits?

  • Anyone that uses a manual wheelchair and transfers to chairs, lounges, bed, toileting, showering, transport (car/van/plane)
  • For wheelchair users with limited upper body strength that find it difficult to lift themselves over a wheel arch to transfer
  • Supports some rehab patients to more quickly develop skills to transition to a home environment independently
  • Creates independence for stoke survivors that may be hemiplegic eg. one side of the body with limited functionality
  • Reduces lifting required by carers and health workers
  • Increases social inclusion – able to transfer to restaurants/café/theatre seating and move the wheelchair out of the way
  • The segments can be detached for compact transport in a car/plane
  • The clasps are ergonomically designed so they can be operated without full hand dexterity
  • Carbon fibre wheels are lighter and best suited to wet areas and rough terrain
  • The wheels fit most wheelchairs and have a 12mm quick release axle and conversion kits of other sizes
  • The trivida wheels have potential to save paid carers costs of transferring between $1,000 to $1,780 per week (see assumptions).

Independence, Mobility & Social Inclusion

A world first, award winning true invention and new to Australia the trivida® detachable wheelchair wheel allows wheelchair users to make an obstacle-free transfer – from and into the wheelchair – for the first time enhancing quality of life & independence for patient/users health outcomes.

Re-inventing the wheel in a good way!
