Active lightweight wheelchairs… what’s not to love

Light, modern and mobile – they bring that next level of accessibility and look good doing it. However, like anything we spend our life in, we want it to reflect who we are as a person. So, in the time of individualism, how can we make our wheelchairs more unique?

These 6 accessories will help you stand out from the crowd!

Izzy Wheels

Show off your individuality

Show off your individuality and personality with the fun and colourful wheel covers made by Izzy Wheels. These guards come in many different designs, so you can pick the one that reflects your personality the most.

Irish sisters Ailbhe and Izzy came up with the idea when they realised that the first thing people noticed about Izzy was her wheelchair… but it wasn’t a reflection of her bright and bubbly personality.

The sisters now work with the artists from all over the world (like Helen Steele and James Earley) to design their spoke guards. They say…if you can’t stand up, stand out!

They show that wheelchairs can be so much more than a medical device, they can be a piece of artistic self-expression. You could make a bold statement and highlight your unique style by getting a pair of their amazing wheel covers!

Light up wheels

Looking to light up your life (and your wheelchair)?

These nifty light-up wheels will keep you looking bright and feeling fun!

Purchase either the front wheels or the larger ones (or both!) and be the brightest person in any room. They light up and sparkle as you roll… in red, blue, white and green. Now that’s a unique accessory worth investing in!

Wheelchair Push Rim Covers

Add a bit of jazz to your chair

These colourful Push Rim Covers add a bit of jazz to your chair… and are specially designed to improve grip and traction. They make it easier to manoeuvre and go faster… and you can get them in a variety of colours.

They are super easy to attach to your chair, and once you have them, you probably won’t need gloves to push your rims anymore! Equally, there will be no more cold fingers in the winter from grabbing metal push rims.


The snazziest way to add a bit of extra suspension to your wheelchair

Loopwheels are the snazziest way to add a bit of extra suspension to your wheelchair.., they absorb vibration, bumps and shocks. The colourful structure quickly click in to replace your current wheel spokes. They have clever inbuilt suspension to make travelling over bumpy terrain that bit smoother. They actually reduce wheelchair vibrations by up to 70%… this allows you to go faster, further and off road in your own wheelchair!

Not only do they give modern, abstract look to your wheelchair because of their interesting structure – you can get them in an array of different colours – so you can decide which one goes with your look the best…ideal!
