If you are a wheelchair user and dread the thought of hot summers or overheating through exercise, which can leave you hot and uncomfortable, then wheelAIR® may make a huge difference to your quality of life.
wheelAIR® is a battery-powered airflow backrest cushion carefully designed, with the input of Paralympic athletes, to be cooling and more supportive. Through a combination of function and effortlessly stylish (and silent) design, users have experienced a drop in both back and core temperature, heavily reducing the effects of overheating.
wheelAIR® has a simple control with 4 cooling settings, is USB chargeable and has up to 20 hours battery life. Available in 6 widths to fit all active lightweight rigid and folding wheelchairs with a canvas backrest. Measure the width of your current backrest cushion to determine which size is best for you. For information on sizing and how to measure your chair for wheelAIR® please see the above 'Size Charts' tab.
We have no reason to believe there are any serious health risks associated with the use of the wheelAIR. However, if you are experiencing any discomfort or adverse temperature drop then we would advise you to stop using the cushion immediately and seek medical help.
