These wheels are made up of three loops that work together to create a self-correcting system. By using a spring between the hub and the rim of the wheel to provide suspension, the wheel is continuously adjusting to uneven surfaces.
Attaching and removing the wheels couldn’t be easier – simply press the button in the centre of the wheel so the quick release axel appears, line the wheel up against your frame and push it into place. To remove the wheel, simply press the button and pull the wheel away from the frame!
Amazingly Loopwheels offer a ‘try before you buy scheme’ to prevent users from spending a lot of money on a product that might not work for them. To utilise this service, all I had to do was sign up online and pay £20 to cover the delivery charges; the wheels were then delivered to my door for a 21 day trial. You don’t get to choose the colour of the wheels you borrow, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover a set of purple wheels in excellent condition! I honestly never expected the wheels to be as good as the reviews made them out to be, which is why I hadn’t considered how I might pay for them once my trial came to an end! But thankfully Loopwheels have several payment methods available, including monthly instalments to make the purchase much more affordable!
To conclude, I cannot find anything negative to say about these wheels! They have greatly reduced the number of vibrations radiating up through my seat cushion, backrest and handlebars, which not only reduces my pain levels but also makes life easier for my carer when pushing me. I also love that the wheels are sleek and stylish, which in turn makes my wheelchair look rather snazzy! So much so that people regularly stop me to ask about my Loopwheels! Because of this, I would highly recommend Loopwheels to anyone who is looking for a way to make their wheelchair more comfortable. Just don’t forget to utilise their trial scheme, so you can see first hand whether the wheels improve your quality of life before committing to a purchase!
