On standard wheelchairs, a brake is mounted onto the Wheelchair Frame and must be engaged to secure the wheelchair. The frame-mounted brake adds weight, is unattractive and can be difficult for people with limited hand mobility to engage. In addition, frame mounted brakes can get in the way of transfers, can pinch fingers and can be a danger to wheelchair users' hands.
The Bite Laced wheel has a unique built-in brake system; a patent for which is currently pending. With a simple flip of the locking lever on the wheel hub, the locking pins insert into the receiver assuring a secure and stable chair.
This new wheel design allows wheelchair users to avoid the inconvenience of brakes mounted on the wheelchair frame. With the new wheel, the wheelchair is lighter and more attractive, there is no longer the danger of a wheelchair user hitting their hand or pinching fingers and it allows camber and center of gravity to be changed without adjusting wheel locks. As it comes with standard quick-release axels, the Bite Laced Wheel can be used on nearly any wheelchair.
