Suspension forks
Suspension fork, size 1, silver, with floating axle
Gallery
The caster fork to manage obstacles with an elastic suspension.
 
Suitability
  • Up to 120 kg user load capacity
  • When getting in and out of the chair the suspension fork may need getting used to, as the wheelchair slightly sinks when the user sits down on the front edge.
  • The suspension is not suitable for wheelchair users who wheel with their entire upper part of the body, i.e. who fully bend forward while wheeling.
Notes
  • The size of the caster fork is selected by PRO ACTIV based on the desired/required seating height in the front.
  • Floating or bolt-on axles possible (floating axle with additional charge).
  • Must be maintained and serviced. The suspension fork must be kept clean at all times to prevent damage to the suspension!
Features
  • Philosophy behind the suspension fork: potential use of hard caster wheel races increases smooth running. The resulting worse comfort is compensated or enhanced by the elasticity of the wheel suspension and the wheel.
  • On uneven terrain and cobbled pavement shocks are absorbed without affecting the easy-run characteristics and manoeuvrability of the wheelchair.
  • The suspension fork counteracts pain and spasticity, caused by shocks through uneven terrain.
  • The intensity of shock absorption can be customised by the selection of the spring type and tension.
  • If the suspension fork is selected, only the ”PRO ACTIV 5″ easy-running 3-spoke aluminium rim caster wheel is used due to its load capacity and hard race.
