Invents Company Announces 'The Wheelchair Enhancement': Makes Navigating Chair Easier With Enhanced User Control

If one must use a wheelchair to move around from place to place, chances are increasing the ability to maneuver is always foremost in one’s thoughts. This new improvement is so simple one will wonder why they didn’t think of it first. The Wheelchair Enhancement would equip standard manual wheelchairs with larger front wheels giving the user added leverage and control when maneuvering their chair.

The Wheelchair Enhancement is a simple improvement upon the existing design of manual wheelchairs, in which the front wheels would be enlarged to a diameter of 9 inches from the now-standard diameter of 8 inches. This design enhancement could be incorporated into the design and production of new manual wheelchairs, or – in existing chairs equipped with pin-locking, removable front-wheel assemblies – produced and sold as an add-on, aftermarket upgrade for existing wheelchairs. The enlarged front wheels would give the wheelchair-user additional leverage and added maneuverability, with less effort – and the Wheelchair Enhancement includes a slightly lengthened foot-plate bar for additional stability. Televised test marketing has recently been completed indicating strong consumer interest in the Wheelchair Enhancement.

The Wheelchair Enhancement is Patent Pending and was invented by Robert Hermann of Belvidere, NJ who said, “This is a profound improvement in wheelchair design and it works just as I designed it to do. Independent mobility is vitally important to anyone requiring a wheelchair and this product makes it easier to navigate and keep total control when moving from one place to another without aid. Yes, it works.”
