PARAFREE / Everyday & Training Wheelchair


PARAFREE is a sporty core-body training machine for paraplegics with the benefit of comfort in everyday use. Its design language and structure support active users in self-confidence and independence.
The Wheelchair compels the paralyzed user to keep balance permanently (foamy core).The unique and minimalist frame structure is light-weight and retains its necessary rigidity by carbone material or hydroformed aluminum. The foamy resilient PARACORE-element under the costumized seat-shell reduce spasticity. It also imply a wider range of interaction and can be covered with optional back lean or luggage rack.
