About SmartWheel

The SmartWheel, a computerized, blue disc that attaches to a wheel of a wheelchair, examines manual wheelchair use by analyzing each push on the handrim. The SmartWheel measures push force, push frequency, push length, push smoothness, speed and much more. It creates automated reports that allow therapists to optimize wheelchair set-up and push style to reduce repetitive stress, optimize equipment selection and insurance justification for reimbursement and improve client evaluations through comparisons with a national database.
