A revolution in wheelchairs

Madison Noteworthy's Christi Andringa interviews Brad Reinke, executive vice president of Rowheels, which manufacturers the world's only manual wheelchair wheels designed to eliminate repetitive stress injuries of the shoulder by letting users pull rather than push their wheels — like a rower. Assembled and tested in Fitchburg, Rowheels' REV1 wheels use first-of-its-kind pull-based propulsion and provide a number of important health benefits. Along with enhanced responsiveness and braking, users will use and strengthen shoulder and back muscles neglected by standard push wheeling. Visit RoWheels.com.
