Sports Wheelchairs

Beside the individual adjustment necessary for every athlete, sports wheelchairs must also comply with special requirements regarding stability, manoeuvrability and weight. These again differ for different types of sports.

In basketball related sports the wheelchair needs to be light. It needs to turn swiftly and be robust at the same time. A sports wheelchair needs to retard and brake and accelerate quickly again.

In races on the other hand the sports wheelchair needs to stay firmly on the track and transmit the athletes arm strength ideally to the wheels. The total weight, the resistance of the wheels, the seat, and the drivers´ position as well as fitness and technique, combine to determine the final speed.
