Melbourne business owners Ryan and – previous owners of family healthcare company specialising preventing pressure injuries and falls – have recognised the potential of the trivida wheel and will operate as the importers for Australia and New Zealand.
The trivida® is a wheel that can help you move from being dependant on someone to help you transfer from a wheelchair to bed, a lounge, a car or the bathroom – to doing most things yourself.
trivida® wheels achieved outstanding results in clinical trials and product and safety testing. Reinforcing the benefits of the wheel design and quality of construction.
Designed by Christian Czapek’s aim was to make life easier for people using wheelchairs. He tried a number of different configurations eventually settling on the three-segment wheel which provided the most stability and accessibility.
Many would agree that we associate efficiency and quality with German products – this is definitely the case for trivida® wheels.
The wheels are a novel invention with no others in the world even similar.
Falls are often due to wheelchair users or carers tripping on feet rests, getting clothing caught on arm rests and wheel guards or getting out of balance trying to lift over wheels to a chair or seat.
Using trivida wheels means that many people who use a wheelchair can transfer independently. Due to the decrease in paid care, the cost savings in Australia (June 2023) currently range from $1047.79.40 to $1781.25 per week.
In a recent clinical trial 90% of the study participants attest that the transfer with the trivida® wheel is made significantly easier. It reduces problems such as insecurity, slipping, obstruction by the wheelchair.
For many carers and medical professionals there is a significant strain on their body when lifting and supporting people. The trivida® wheel has been specifically designed to reduce the need for lifting.
In Australia, there are approximately 193,600 people that use a wheelchair, and for many, trivida® wheels can mean the difference between being independent or needing a carer to lift them in and out of their wheelchair.
