Benefits of the GRIT Freedom Chair for riders with Spina Bifida


Reduced shoulder strain

The GRIT Freedom Chair's lever drive uses an ergonomic motion that engages large muscle groups in the chest and shoulders. This can help prevent the shoulder and arm injuries that plague regular wheelchair users.


Fun to ride

The easy to push lever drive takes the physical stress out of pushing yourself around, helping you to focus on enjoying your environment and the friends and family you're exploring it with. Enjoy the outdoors again!
