GRIT Freedom Chair—
the all-terrain wheelchair built for adventure
The GRIT Freedom Chair is an all-terrain wheelchair designed to help you move beyond the pavement. Developed by MIT mechanical engineers, this easy-to-push, lever-driven wheelchair comes armed with rugged mountain bike wheels and a big, sturdy front wheel. Cruise across grass, cut through the mud, tackle an obstacle course race, or hit the beach in this all-terrain wheelchair. The choice is yours!
Why choose our all-terrain wheelchair?
We studied biomechanics to find that about 90% of the energy a wheelchair rider uses is wasted. A lever-drive system is way more efficient than regular push-rims, easy to fit within the confines of a wheelchair frame, and allows you to shift hand position on the levers to achieve improved mechanical advantage.
Of course, our all-terrain wheelchair also gives you the mobility you need to spend time with your friends and family without having to think about your mobility. Several riders say the Freedom Chair helps lessen everyday symptoms like fatigue, pain, isolation, and depression, all while providing a way to stay social and active outdoors.
Built for the trail
The rugged and lightweight steel frame is stable, like a tripod, keeping you grounded and in control.
Like a bike
Every moving part is an off-the-shelf bike part, for easy maintenance and infinite customization.
Easy to push
The revolutionary lever drive gives you the leverage to handle whatever the trail throws at you.

I love watching [my son] speed off ahead of us on whatever path we’re on, enjoying his own independence and ability to fly.
How freeing it is to take control of your body and become active...It’s such a great feeling, and I want others to have that.
