While often overlooked, these elements play a pivotal role in determining the wheelchair’s manoeuvrability, stability, and suitability for various terrains.

  4. Off-road Wheels and Tyres:
    • Features: Designed to conquer rough terrain, off-road wheels feature robust treads and durable construction. Available in pneumatic or solid options, they offer stability and traction on uneven surfaces.
    • Benefits: Users can explore outdoor environments like trails, parks, and wilderness areas confidently, enjoying adventures off the beaten path without limitations.
