VeloPlus wheelchair transport bicycle
The VeloPlus wheelchair transport bike is designed for transporting people, who can remain seated in their own wheelchair, by cycle. The passenger is not required to be transferred between the wheelchair and the cycle. The co-rider can be wheeled on to the plateau of the cycle easily without having to be lifted. The tilted ramp makes it easy to roll the wheelchair on to the wheel-chair bike and fasten it properly with the wheelchair lock. The low positioning of the chair on the cycle makes the ride easier and gives a lower center of gravity. The widely placed and extra steered front-wheels ensure a reduced turning radius and hence, stability. The electric engine may be optionally used for power assist during cycling. The VeloPlus is mostly used in institutions or homes for transporting various persons.
Look at our options page for more examples.
The VeloPlus wheelchair bike is suitable for any wheelchair up to 74 cm in width. The wheelchair can be placed quickly and easily by one person on to the cycle and is therefore, suitable for homes or institutions.
