Short in length.
It's not so long— no really.
Take a ride down to your local coffee shop. You'll have no problems getting in.
RoTrike is a one of a kind combination of ergonomics, efficiency and mobility.
You might just start planning your days a little differently with this cool new ride.
Lifting your body in and out of your chair induces peak strain
forces on your shoulders and wrists.
Because RoTrike’s 20-inch wheels are located under the seat transfer
is a breeze. In park-mode just swing up one of the arm rests and
slide right on in. You’ll find lots of clearance to swing your
leg on over. Talk about easy transfer.
Save your shoulders, wrists, and hands.
An estimated 90% of all wheelchairs are push-rim propelled, a physically straining form of ambulation that can lead to repetitive strain injuries in the arms and, eventually, to secondary impairments and compounded disability.
RoTrike provides a bio-mechanically efficient and non-injurious means of self-propulsion.
Leave your gloves at home.
Suddenly everything is aligned.
Traditional push-rim propulsion is tough.
Tough on the shoulders, wrists, and hands.
RoTrike employs an ergonomic, efficient, and compact
front-and-center mounted lever drive system providing propulsion
on both forward and backwards strokes.
Turn the handlebars like a bicycle to steer, extend the lever up
to employ more power, twist the grip shift to change gears and
pull back all the way to engage powerful disc brakes.
RoTrike’s innovative new geometry and biomechanics make it the most accessible
manual mobility device ever. Whether you're a hemi, para, tetra, or just have difficulty
walking it’s easy to ride RoTrike.
With the handlebar front-and-center, adjustable seat back, and sculpted arm
rests the RoTrike design offers built-in support to keep you sitting up straight.
Using the handlebar to propel, steer, shift, and brake is a dream for those with limited
hand or upper body strength.
Where special accommodation is required accessories are available.
Our drive. Your mobility.
The ROTA powertrain converts reciprocal linear (push-pull) motion into
unidirectional rotary output. With one push-pull of the adjustable
length lever arm RoTrikeʼs rear wheels rotate up to 2 revolutions
dependent upon the selected gear.
The RoTrike gives riders the option of 8 gearing ratios that can be
shifted at low velocity or input force. But we didn’t stop there.
Depending on how much input force you need, you can extend the
24-inch telescoping lever arm. Hills - no problem.
RoTrike provides a less strenuous means of propulsion than a traditional push-rim
wheelchair, and offers significant mechanical advantage. This enables riders to
enjoy traveling quickly and easily over considerable distances of variable
terrain, camber and grade.
With a small footprint and fully articulated steering mechanism, RoTrike provides
the maneuverability essential for you to navigate through your home, office,
classroom, public transport, shopping centers, and restrooms.
Maneuverable in confined spaces.
When you get stuck in a tight situation and need to reverse, spin, or
shunt nothing works better than giving your rear wheels a quick push.
RoTrike comes standard with push-rims on the rear wheels.
Compatible with your life.
RoTrike was designed to be compatible with your life. In drive-mode
you can row yourself to your destination at speeds up to 15 mph.
When you reach your destination just stow the propulsion lever and
roll in under your office desk or a table at your favorite restaurant.
A true crossover vehicle
RoTrike will have you thinking about where you want to go
rather than where you can’t.
The 16-inch front wheel makes riding over uneven
ground comfortable and easy.
The ROTA powertrain delivers tremendous power to the rear wheels.
With your center of gravity located right above the rear wheels
RoTrike has tremendous traction.
On variable terrain, camber, or grade, no problem. RoTrike features a rear differential
that automatically delivers power to the wheel with the most traction.
The RoTrike steers just like a bicycle. Turn the handlebar and the front
wheel turns. It couldn’t be any simpler.
With the RoTrike you have incredible maneuverability.
RoTrike has an
in-drive turning radius of just 36 inches.
It’s really skinny.
Big function in a small footprint. That’s what the RoTrike is all about.
The RoTrike is just 27 inches wide and includes 10º of rear wheel
camber for increased stability.
Standard doorways in a new home are typically 32 - 36 inches wide. Both
ADA requirements and Specially Adapted Housing Minimum Property
Requirements specify a minimum hallway width of 48 inches, with a minimum
doorway width of 36 inches to allow full wheelchair accessibility.
Cool. Classy. Compliant.
Mobility has never looked this good.
Because ROTA designs both the powertrain and ride for RoTrike,
it's possible to address and improve things like vehicle performance,
handling, ergonomics, and design.
RoTrike is engineered to be ANSI/RESNA compliant, the standard for the
You're coming with me.
RoTrike fully dissembles in seconds. If you were thinking about a road trip save some
room for your new best friend.
All three wheels have quick release hubs. The seat back and armrests fold down like magic.
Both seat base and back cushions attach with Velcro®. Perfect if you
need to throw them in the wash after your ride.
