Spinergy FLEXRIM Pushrim

The Spinergy FLEXRIM is a low impact pushrim that helps reduce the risk of overuse injuries and makes it easier to push a manual wheelchair. It allows the user to push without ever touching the tire. Because it takes less energy to push, the user can go further without getting fatigued. The ultralight 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. The FLEXRIM is available in 24 inch and 25 inch.
