Synopsis: HealthPedal is an indoor and outdoor pedal powered wheelchair that can be used for mobility, freedom, fitness, and strength building. HealthPedal changed course in 2018 with the new model GOxCy 30 due to its much more affordable price and portability. HealthPedal GOxCy 30 is intended to be used on smooth flat surfaces such as wide indoor hallways or paved bicycle and walking paths.
HealthPedal, located in Akron, Ohio, is introducing a new resource for people with certain mobility disabilities to benefit from.
HealthPedal is a "pedal wheelchair" although it really isn't a "wheelchair." It is an indoor-outdoor "ability cycle" that is compact enough for inside use and durable for outdoor cycling.
The functional intention of this new cycle is for users to stay more active throughout the day and get the needed exercise that is not as easy to do with manual wheelchairs or electric scooters.
Originally the distributor of another model, HealthPedal changed course in 2018 with the new model GOxCy 30 due to its much more affordable price, portability (it folds to only 12" wide), and other functional design features that users and healthcare staff utilize.
This new portable model is engineered to be much easier to store when not using and also to travel with in a car trunk going to the park or on an airplane heading to your next vacation location. As well, the 2019 current price is a more affordable $1,195 (USD) and even includes free shipping in the USA.
