The Easy Wheelchair Push Bar
is an easy on, easy off bar that spans the push handles of a wheelchair and makes pushing the chair easier.
With this stabilizing bar, a wheelchair can be pushed with one hand. The ergonomic design also allows the person pushing to place their hands in a variety of positions. When using both hands, the Easy Wheelchair Push Bar transfers power directly to the chair with less effort. This helps to make maneuvering steep ramps, inclines, uneven surfaces, soft ground, or carpets much easier.
Children and the elderly will find that a wheelchair equipped with the Easy Wheelchair Push Bar is much easier to push and control. Very tall people and people with lower back pain will be able to stand straighter when pushing a wheelchair with the Easy Push Bar.
The Easy Wheelchair Push Bar is available in two sizes: Kit 1 fits wheelchairs with hand grips from 12 to 19 inches wide; Kit 2 fit hand grips 17 to 26 inches wide. The kit consists of 2 L-shaped elbows and an adjustable center bar. The L-shaped elbows attach permanently to the handles of a manual wheelchair. (The hand grips on the chair have to be removed and the elbows attached by drilling.) The expandable center bar slips over the upright portion of the elbows and is secured with a push pin. The center bar is quickly and easily removed to allow the wheelchair to be stored or transported.
