Riders with EDS

People with Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) can use the GRIT Freedom Chair to enjoy the outdoors beyond the pavement.

“It’s liberating and I’m getting to do all this stuff that, quite frankly, I never thought I would ever be able to do again . . . It has surpassed all of my hopes and expectations in terms of getting around on rougher terrain and being able to hike again and being able to get back out in the field.”
— Crys

Benefits of the GRIT Freedom Chair


Easier and easier to push

The GRIT Freedom Chair's lever drive has a mechanical advantage between the lever and the wheel, making it easier to push the chair forward than on push-rim wheelchairs. The gearing can be changed to make the chair easier to push if your condition changes.


Gentle on the arms

The GRIT Freedom Chair's lever drive uses an ergonomic motion that engages large muscle groups in the chest and shoulders. It can help eliminate the joint issues that can occur when using typical wheelchair push rims. Active Hands Grip Aids can help you push the GRIT Freedom Chair even without grip strength or finger flexibility.
