"The possibility to switch gears make the daily life easier. Downshifting give more power and with the hill hold the wheelchair doesn`t roll backwards and give you more time to take a new grip or rest on your way up."
Wheelchair wheels with a gear-shifter means that you use less power in inclines and sluggish or uneven surfaces. The hill hold prevents rolling backwards in slopes, ramps or thresholds. The benefit is that you create opportunities to manage your wheelchair in settings that you would otherwise would have had a difficult time controlling or even avoided altogether.
