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.
Standard wheelchair frames have a distance of 4-3/4″ from the top of the footrest to the floor.
How to choose the right custom option:
If your footplate is from 4 1/2″-6 1/2″ from the top of the footrest to the floor, you would choose 5 1/2 (freewheel)
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″-6 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)
*For a child, pick the footplate distance that allows some room for growth.
*If you have a folding wheelchair, please choose the folding chair option above.
TiLite Angle Adjust Clamp Footplate
TiLite rigid frame wheelchairs have 3 different footplate options
For those of you that have a TiLite Adjustable-Angle Clamp Footplate, you will need to make sure you have the clamp A, pictured below (Part P102).
Below are the instructions for setting up your new TiLite clamp and “pinning” the footrest.
Note: If your chair already has Clamp A, pictured below, you only need to order a SHIM (P103), which will go between the footrest and clamp to guarantee a secure, tight clamping of the FreeWheel.
