Research Evidence of the Benefits of the Natural-Fit Handrim
The research evidence (detailed below) demonstrates that you pay a price with every push on the skinny, round tube standard handrim. The price is less efficiency, more effort, and more fatigue and pain. In contrast, the same research shows that the ergonomic grip of the Natural-Fit improves performance and efficiency with every push:
- The Natural-Fit provides a 16% reduction in effort to grip the rim.
- You can cover the same ground with less work and less fatigue.
- Multiply the effort saved on every push by 2000-3000 - that's the average number of times wheelchair users push on their handrim in a single day.
The Natural-Fit uses the original, larger profile oval. It offers 80% more surface area for gripping than a standard handrim and weighs just 1.5 lbs.
