Check out the Top Ten Ways the FreeWheel will Change your Life
FreeWheel Wheelchair Attachment
In seconds it quickly and securely clamps to the solid footrest of your rigid-frame manual chair or any folding chair using the Freewheel folding wheelchair adaptor. Once attached, the FreeWheel gently lifts your front casters off the ground turning you into a 3-wheel, all-terrain chair.
With the FreeWheel you can safely push over surfaces that would typically be impossible! Instead of struggling or popping "wheelies" to go over grass, curbs, or down dirt trails, you can now safely push over almost any obstacle. Not only does the FreeWheel make it easier to push yourself, it makes it easier for anyone who is pushing you and you'll feel much more secure being pushed.
"The FreeWheel is the most innovative piece of adaptive equipment available."
- Andrew Hippert
The FreeWheel comes with all you need to set it up on your chair. The initial installation may take approximately 15 min., after that the FreeWheel clamps on in seconds. When you are not using the FreeWheel you can store it on the perch on the back of your chair.

- If your footplate is from 5 1/2"-7 1/2" from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 6 1/2 (freewheel)
- If your footplate is from 6 1/2"-8 1/2" from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 7 1/2 (freewheel)
- If your footplate is from 7 1/2"-9 1/2" from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 8 1/2 (freewheel)
