MAGICWHEELS is a two-gear manual wheelchair wheel that changes gears like a bicycle and has been clinically shown to significantly reduce shoulder pain. Clinical studies have shown that as many as 80 percent of wheelchair users report moderate to severe chronic shoulder pain. This often debilitating discomfort stems from the dependence on the upper extremities strained by repeated use. The cutting-edge technological advancement embodied in the sleek form of MAGICWHEELS drive wheels enables the user to traverse terrain previously off-limits, offering a much-needed and renewed sense of independence and increased mobility. These all-mechanical wheels provide two easily shifted gears. When shifted, the wheels reduce the effort of climbing and negotiating rough terrain by half, greatly reducing the chance and severity of shoulder pain.
