Tips and Advice

When we look at manual wheelchair design, there are many components that can impact performance and ride characteristics for the user. While we pay a lot of attention to frame design and configuration, we often don’t give the same amount of attention to some of the smaller options such as the front casters.

Just how significant are those small wheels on the front of your wheelchair? Very! Casters are:

  • The first point of contact within a new environment
  • A large influence on the ride characteristics of the wheelchair
  • Setup to have a direct effect on the efficiency of propulsion for the end-user
  • Directly impacting the front seat-to-floor height and the lower extremity positioning options

There are many components to consider when selecting the type of caster that is the correct one for an end-user.
