Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has recently acquired the distribution rights to offer MORPH™ Wheels Folding Wheelchair Wheels to a more comprehensive consumer marketplace. Yes, the wheel has indeed been reinvented with the world’s first ever folding and collapsible wheelchair wheels! Originally conceptualized as folding bicycle wheels by Royal College of Arts graduate student, Duncan Fitzsimmons, he redesigned this concept for wheelchairs after receiving much public attention and numerous requests from the disabled community. With specific input from wheelchair users from all over the world, the design was further enhanced and modified and has revolutionized the industry.
Now the wheelchair-bound can more easily travel anywhere and everywhere with the help of the innovative MORPH™ Wheels. These 24 inch wheels fold down to 32 inches by 12.5 inches and will fit almost anywhere. The generally limited space in small cars and taxi cabs is no longer a concern for wheelchair users as these wheels will collapse to fit in just about any tiny space. They easily fold down to fit in overhead bins and even under the seat on planes and trains, and can also be stored away in the closet when not in use. These handy wheels eliminate the risk of damaging wheelchair wheels when traveling, and will also reduce painful strains on shoulders when transferring them into cars as they only weigh 7.5 pounds each.
The ingenious MORPH™ Wheels will fit all wheelchairs that accommodate a wheel with a quick release axle and are easily changed by the wheelchair user without any need of a special tool. The rated weight capacity of the wheel is 265 pounds, and has passed all RESNA and ANSI impact, curb drop and double drum testing standards for unsurpassed safety. These foldable wheels have been designed in such a way that as long as the quick release axle is through the hub of the wheel, the wheel cannot fold, a fail-safe feature that ensures the complete safety and security of the user.
“We are thrilled to introduce the incredible new MORPH™ Wheels Folding Wheelchair Wheels to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Specifically created for wheelchair users who like to be on the go, these wheels help simplify car, train, boat and plane travel, and will give the users peace of mind that their wheels will arrive safe, sound and ready to go.
