Advanced Suspension Technology
Technology that’s driving the future of transportation – at the center of SoftWheel’s technology is an innovative in-wheel suspension system that improves a vehicle’s performance. The patented technology can be adapted to several personal mobility applications, providing unique benefits for each. This technology is currently driving innovation in the automotive, bicycle, and wheelchair sectors.
Long-term exposure to vibrations has been demonstrated to have a negative impact on people’s health & comfort. Clinical studies have shown that wheelchair riders are exposed to vibrations that exceed the recommended exposure limits. Health risks associated with vibrations for wheelchair riders include lower back pain, effects on the spine, and muscle fatigue.
SoftWheel’s technology leads to a more stable & smooth riding experience over all types of terrain.
The innovative suspension & damping technology disperses the impact energy, thereby shortening the impact duration and shock magnitude transferred to the rider. Fewer vibrations are therefore transmitted to the rider, leading to a smoother, more comfortable ride. SoftWheels are more energy efficient, helping to maintain forward momentum, which can reduce fatigue.
