Frequently Asked Questions

Spokeguards are plastic covers that fit over your wheelchair's rear wheel. Attached using cable ties, they help to prevent  your fingers getting caught between the wheel's spokes when propelling your wheelchair. They're also a great way of adding a flair of personalisation. Available in a variety of designs, our Built-4-Me bespoke wheelchairs department can even produce spokeguard covers with your own, unique design!

Sideguards are mounted on the left and right side of your wheelchair. They help to protect your hands and clothing from the dirt and water that can be  kicked up by the wheels of your wheelchair. Sideguards an be fixed or removable and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.

If you have a folding wheelchair, your serial number will be on the cross-brace (the folding bars underneath the seat of your wheelchair). If you have a rigid wheelchair, the serial number will be on the rear side of the frame.

Handrims (sometimes called pushrims) are the part of the rear wheel that you grip to propel your wheelchair. Attached to the outside of the wheel, they're available in a variety of materials (including aluminium, stainless steel or titanium). Handrims are also available with rubber coating or can be equipped with rubber strips that fits over the surface of the handrim to help increase friction. The distance of the handrim to the wheel can be adjusted according to your needs.

Camber is the angle of the wheelchair's rear wheels in relation to the ground. Traditionally, the rear wheels are at  90° to the ground, so the camber measurement is 0. A negative camber (usually seen in sports wheelchairs) adjusts the angle of the rear wheels inwards, so they're easier to grasp - helping to manouvre your wheelchair with less force. The increased width from the spacing of the wheels also helps to improve lateral stability (but can also make it more difficult when navigating narrow environments).

Rigid and folding frame active wheelchairs are lighter than standard wheelchairs and use components made of lightweight aluminium, carbon fibre and titanium. They have minimal rolling resistance, making them easier to propel. Depending on their individual requirements, users can choose between a rigid frame and a folding frame. This type of wheelchair is ideal for users who enjoy an active lifestyle and need a lightweight manual modern wheelchair that can keep up with their busy schedule and meet their demands for style.

QUICKIE rigid wheelchairs provide a fixed front frame for active users who are looking for an ultra-lightweight manual wheelchair. The absence of joints and hinges ensures an ultra-lightweight wheelchair which provides superior propulsion and a highly responsive manual wheelchair that offers precise control, superb balance and exceptional performance. Check out the popular Quickie Helium rigid wheelchair and our latest high-end ultra-lightweight wheelchair, the Quickie Krypton.

QUICKIE folding wheelchairs have folding frames and are perfect for active users who need an easily transportable lightweight manual collapsible wheelchair. The wheelchair frame is collapsible, with the seat and backrest made of flexible materials to ensure the wheelchair can be easily folded. They make an ideal wheelchair for travel or car transfers, although they weigh a little more, so require a little more force to be propelled. Discover the popular Quickie Xenon²folding wheelchair, or our latest ultra-lightweight folding wheelchair the Quickie Krypton.

QUICKIE Tilt-in-space wheelchairs are a great option for more dependent wheelchair users with high seating comfort and/or changing needs. Designed with both users and caregivers in mind, they offer full adjustability and excellent positioning options, allowing for quick and easy adaptation to individual requirements – both today and tomorrow. The tilted position helps to facilitate feeding and respiratory functions, assist with pressure relief and improve visual alignment by holding the head upright. Due to the tilt function the seating position can easily be adapted depending on activity and changes in pressure distribution. TheQuickie Iris is the lightest tilt in space wheelchair available today.
