Exercise with the All-Terrain Active Wheelchair
With the Freedom Chair, you work out wherever and whenever you want.
Active wheelchairs are designed with the athletic rider in mind. Whether you’re pursuing fitness, adventure, improved flexibility, heart health, or strength training, these wheelchairs help you accomplish those goals. From longtime athletes to first-time wheelchair users, many of our riders use their Freedom Chairs as exercise tools—some days they go to the gym, while other days they work out in their Freedom Chair.
Here at GRIT, we don’t think a workout should stop at the end of the paved sidewalk. The thrill of a trail ride, the nuances of off-road inclines and declines, the confidence to roll over obstacles without wondering Can my chair handle this—these are freedoms that should be attainable by everyone.
So, our team of MIT mechanical engineers designed a better active wheelchair. We’ve continually improved the design to optimize mechanical efficiency, serviceability, and outright toughness to create an active wheelchair exceptionally deserving of the title “the mountain bike of wheelchairs.”
Whether you’re a seasoned physical athlete, an obstacle-course racer, a marathoner, a 5K-er, 10K-er, or are just looking to get back into shape, the Freedom Chair can help you get where you want to go. Many of our riders are just beginning (or getting back into) a fitness plan—in fact, many have never exercised in a wheelchair before.
No matter your background, no matter how many race medals or trophies you have displayed in your living room, the Freedom Chair can be a terrific way to work fitness back into your life.
