wheelAIR cooling wheelchair backrest

The wheelAIR® helps active wheelchair users keep cool – and it looks great too

The wheelAIR® cooling wheelchair backrest cushion has been developed with help from leading Paralympic athletes and is designed to help active users cool and prevent overheating.

The wheelAIR® is more or less silent and is extremely easy to fit, use and recharge. It comes in a number of sizes including 29cm wide, 33cm wide, 36cm wide and 40cm wide.

The length of the cushion is 74cm and the thickness is 2.5cm

It can work with active lightweight rigid and folding wheelchairs with a canvas backrest and users will benefit from a cooler back temperature and cooler core temperature.

In regards to the weight – the fan & remote weigh 450g with the cushion section weighing 750 to 860g (depending on the width size).
