Colours in Motion Inc

Company Type: Parent

Colours Wheelchairs has announced the launch of the The Bite Laced Wheels. This innovative wheel combines style and technology in a way possible only for Colours. 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.
