REINVENT YOUR WHEELCHAIR EXPERIENCE
SoftWheel™ Acrobat™ is the world’s first adaptive In-Wheel Suspension System that is transforming wheelchair mobility and accessibility, enabling both active and non-active users to go farther and do more, with more energy, comfort, and safety.
The Acrobat™ is the only wheelchair system that enhances your ride and capabilities. It absorbs shocks and vibrations while providing extraordinary rigidity and stability. What makes SoftWheel™ unique is the wheel itself which has an adaptive suspension mechanism built right into it. Cutting-edge wheel engineering & design has resulted in a suspension system consisting of three shock absorbers that replace the spokes of a standard wheel. The suspension switches between remaining rigid on flat surfaces, for maximum stability, and compressing to absorb impact from bumps, for maximum comfort. The net result is much less vibration to the frame or rider’s body, improved riding experience, comfort and energy-efficiency of self propulsion.
- In-wheel Suspension™ - SoftWheel’s core innovation are the three suspension arms built inside the wheel rim, equidistant around a central hub, that absorb shocks from any direction.
- Adaptive Rigidity™ - SoftWheel’s three suspension arms remain rigid and strong like spokes, but when encountering obstacles, automatically compress to absorb the shock.
- Rapid Shock-Reset™ - After impact, SoftWheel’s three suspension arms reset quickly, absorbing almost all of the shock. After ⅓ turn of the wheel, the 3 suspension arms are immediately ready to go.
- Single-piece Rigid Rims™ - All SoftWheel rims are built extremely rigid and strong.
