The TrueBalance is a revolutionary product, allowing clinicians and suppliers to measure how “tippy” their client's wheelchair is. With the TrueBalance it is easy to optimize the position of the rear axle, leading to reduced rolling resistance, improved responsiveness, minimized impact from sidewalk cracks, and eased ability to traverse cross slopes• Laser line indicator for rear and front axle locations• Formulas for weight ratio and axle adjustments• Carpet shims for accurate measurements on carpeted floors
- Laser Indicator
With the laser indicator attached to the balance tracks you can easily measure the tippiness of the wheelchair. All you have to do is have your client push onto the tracks and stop when they are balanced, then move the laser pointer to measure the position of the center of each axle from the balance point.
- Adjustable Tracks
The balance tracks are adjustable in width so they can be easily adapted to any wheelchair size.
- Tuning Tippiness
The weight ratio is what determines how tippy a client is. This formula uses thecaster and rear wheel measurements made with the laser line. The second formula is used to determine how a client’s axle needs to be adjusted based on a desired level of tippiness The result will tell you to move the axel forward or backward and by how much.
