Designed to help self-propellers get the most out of each wheelchair stroke, the Natural-Fit handrim improves efficiency and eases pain in hands and wrists by reducing the effort it takes to grip the rim. Users get better control when braking and greater overall efficiency while covering the same ground with less work and fatigue. The Natural-Fit is compatible with standard spoke wheels measuring 20, 22, 24, 25 or 26 inches, with all sizes of 6-point mag wheels, with 24-inch 7- and 8-point mag wheels, and with Spinergy and X-Core wheels.
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2014:
Sadly these days, it is not about what my Best Pick is as it is what we can get funded. We always offer the clients the ability to upgrade to lighter, cooler, more fun stuff. If funding was not an issue, my Best Picks are a Spinergy LX wheel with Schwalbe Marathon [tire] and Natural-Fit handrim.
