Innovation in handrim design for wheelchairs

Invacare Carbo life handrims for Kuschall

Carbo Life handrims, available across our Küschall active wheelchair range, are the next generation in handrims. Ergonomically engineered to represent the natural autonomy of the hand, ensures optimal transition of power from hand to wheel. The curve handrims provide more control and energy efficiency for you to propel your wheelchair further for longer, leaving more energy to focus on the important activities in your life.  There are two options to choose from:

Curve L
