Rowheels are specially designed wheels that reverse the propulsion method of a manual wheelchair, using larger muscles and reducing injury.
By pulling the handrim instead of pushing, Rowheels propels a wheelchair forward with reduced strain on shoulders, joints and muscles, while also improving posture and core strength.

Rowheels are designed for every day use, as a conditioning device or for athletic activiity. 2012 Wisconsin Governor's business plan competition winner.
