We are a family owned business that began from the old adage, 'necessity is the mother of all invention'. Our 85 year old dad, Dave, had some health issues a few years back that limited his mobility. Dave moved in with his son, Mike, who became his caregiver. Much time was spent travelling by wheelchair right up until Dave passed away in May 2018. We had to change our lifestyles to accomodate these special needs. We tried a dozen different styles of wheelchairs and each one addressed some issues, but each failed to address the main issue, the foot rest. The footrests on most wheelchairs stay in the down default position. This is a safety concern, in the down position the foot rests become obsatcles for the rider. Feet get tangled and cause disastrous falls. It is a huge inconvenience for the care giver or health professional to physically move the footrests into the up or down position. If thhe wheelchair user maneuvers the chair with their feet, the leg extensions must be removed and reinstalled when needed which is a major inconvenience.
Our solution: The Easywheelz Footrest Safety and Convenience Kit. The kit includes retractable foot rests. We invented (patent pending) a mechanism utilizing a specially designed torsion spring and tabs on the footpads to rotate the foot rests into the desired position - see video on our GALLERY page.
Another issue addressed by the kit is the difficulty in maneuvering the wheelchair with the (2) handles mounted to the top of the Handlebars. Often, it is necessary to move the wheelchair around with one hand. We devised a product that utilizes an adjustable cane that spans the width of the wheelchair across the (2) handles. This cane acts as a pushbar allowing for easy one-handed maneuvering. The cane is easily removed/replaced with (2) adjustable brackets that are mounted to the existing hand grips. - see photo on our GALLERY page. The cane/pushbar also can be removed and used as an extension handle to open and close doors for entry and exit. Another great feature of the kit, shopping bag hooks mounted to the cane pushbar. These make shopping a breeze!
