Rural Hand Bikes for wheelchair users

Rural Hand Bikes are especially designed to be easily assembled and disassembled for wheelchair users. Hand Bikes, a recipient of R400 000 at last year's Disability Empowerment Awards, currently produces two models that simplify transfer and accessibility to and from a wheelchair. The basic design, made with easily maintainable and robust parts, makes this product unique and affordable for individuals living with a disability.
