PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) February 12, 2016
InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from North Carolina, has designed a wheelchair leg rest device that features expandable calf supports. This invention is patented and is available.
The “Retractable Calf Support” would increase comfort for individuals who need to use wheelchairs. It helps to support the legs more fully than conventional wheelchairs, and could require less time and care from caregivers. Ensuring even leg circulation, the invention would be small, compact and easily adjustable.
Featuring extended calf supports, additional padded calf rests are positioned underneath the conventional calf rests. The calf rests would use a depression pin system to allow for adjustment without tools. When needed, the calf rests could be slid inward to accommodate a patient’s legs that bow inward.
“I work at a nursing home in which, out of my 100 patients, six or seven would benefit from this product,” said the inventor. “My idea would increase the comfort and quality of life for patients who use wheelchairs.”
InventHelp is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor. For more information, telephone Dept. 12-CLT-850 at (800) 851-6030.
