Like many events, Naidex 2020 (originally due to take place in March) was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Hopefully, the event can go ahead in November despite the new distancing rules and regulations; but until then, we wanted to share a new blog post every week with information on the AYL Treasure Hunt!
For those of you that don’t know, we are running an exclusive Treasure Hunt at Naidex, which involves working with 16 trusted exhibitors to ensure attendees have a chance to discover and visit stands they otherwise might not have known about. Now you will have to wait until nearer the time to learn how you can take part, but for now, I am proud to introduce the second exhibitor - Loopwheels!
Loopwheels specialise in the design and production of wheelchair wheels with integrated suspension. Instead of using standard spokes, the 3 loops create a self-correcting system. Meanwhile, the spring system between the hub and the rim of the wheel is constantly adjusting to uneven surfaces, cushioning the user from bumps and reducing vibrations by 70%. In simple terms - the wheel hub floats within the rim so that it can constantly adjust as shocks from an uneven surface hit the rim of the wheel. Other benefits include:
● Increased Comfort
● Creates Smoother Ride
● Reduces Pain & Fatigue
● Ability To Go Further & Faster
● Softens Impact When Bumping Down Kerbs & Other Drops
With every wheel being made in Britain, Loopwheels a proud manufacturer of a world-class innovation in wheel technology. Because of this, the company has been nominated for several awards, including placing as a finalist in the ISPO BRANDNEW business awards 2014/15, and as a finalist in the Nottinghamshire Best Business Awards 2013!
The product range includes a standard model, which comes in a variety of colour options to suit your personal preferences; the new urban model, which delivers the same qualities through an even lighter design; and the extreme model, which have an MTB tire making them suitable for off-road use. If you are unsure which model best suits your individual needs, or perhaps you can't decide whether you would benefit from using Loopwheels - the company offer a ‘try before you buy’ scheme which allows you to test the effectiveness of the product for yourself over a 14 day period before committing to a purchase!
At AYL we have openly discussed the benefits of using Loopwheels and confidently share how they have changed our lives as wheelchair users, hence why we actively encouraged our audience to trial them.
