Description

 
The Spinergy FLEXRIM is a revolutionary product that is changing the way people roll. With the urethane material holding the pushrim onto the rim, it allows the user to push with out ever touching the tire. The ultra-light and extremely strong material allows the pushrim to flex in and give the wheelchair user an extra inch or so when squeezing into very tight doorways. This product is unlike anything offered by any other company and is a must have for everyday users of wheelchairs.
You may not realize it, but you grip your pushrims hundreds if not thousands of times a day. You owe it to yourself to be using the best pushrim on the market.
The FlexRim helps reduce the risk of overuse injuries and has been scientifically proven to make it easier to push your wheelchair. It is the world’s first and only low impact pushrim and potentially the most important uprgrade you will ever make.
The FlexRim consists of a durable high friction rubber surface that spans between the aluminum pushrim and the wheel. The shape of the rubber is ergonomically designed to conform to your hand when gripped, making it the most comfortable pushrim you will ever use.

Features

  • Low Impact – The FlexRim “flexes” to protect your hands and arms from impact loading.
  • Ergonomic Grip – The soft high friction rubber conforms to your hand, so gripping is easy.
  • Efficient – It takes less energy to push, so you can go further before getting fatigued.
  • Powerful – Pushes are more powerful, so you push less and coast more.
  • Lightweight – Adds less than 5 oz per wheel.
  • Safe – No gaps or metal tabs, so your thumb won’t get jammed or stuck in the pushrim.
  • Increased Access – Narrower than a standard pushrim and squeezes inwards to get through narrow doorways.
  • Hygienic – No need to grab the tire, so hands stay clean.

  • Proven Benefits

  • Pushes were found to be 13% more powerful on average.
  • Impact loading was found to be reduced by 10% on average.
  • Overall effort (energy used) was found to be reduced by 13% on average.
  • Peak grip force was found to be reduced by 12% on average.
  • Overall grip exertion was found to be reduced by 15% on average.

  • The benefits of the FlexRim have been extensively tested in a wheelchair propulsion biomechanics laboratory. The studies were funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is interested in reducing overuse injuries in the manual wheelchair population. The results of these studies were published in leading scientific journals and show that the use of the FlexRim may help reduce the likelihood of developing overuse injuries due to impact loading, grip stress or pushing fatigue.
