The wheelchair seems to be revolutionized every other month, yet the RoChair is perhaps one of the more realistic and practical approaches to come along in some time. The RoChair essentially keeps the traditional design of the wheelchair, while tweaking it slightly to improve its usability. The main change involves a new and improved way of moving and steering the RoChair.

Designed by ROTA, the RoChair employs an innovative propulsion system that mimics the motion of rowing. This system miminizes arm and joint pain while also facilitating a drive train with eight selectable gearing ratios like a bicycle. The ergonomically correct RoChair incorporates universal accessibility and fits right into any and all lifestyles. Stats for Rowing Wheelchairs Trending: Older & Chilly
