Its perfect ergonomics and outstanding grip properties along with its low weight make the GEKKO a unique, revolutionary handrim. The robust replaceable rubber strip, which is fully integrated into the profile, further enhances the exceptional handling quality of the handrim creating unrivalled riding comfort for you. Additionally, the anodised low-friction surface at the sides prevents heat generation during braking.

Handrim CURVE

Product information Handrim CURVE
Our CURVE handrims – perfect ergonomics with each propulsion.
Who are the CURVE handrims suited for?
For wheelchair users with complete hand function.

What are the advantages of the CURVE handrims?
The innovative profile enables you to gain controlled, low-effort grip while stabilising your wrist. Compared to conventional handrims, the hand muscles tire less and so help to reduce cramps and relieve pain due to carpal tunnel syndrome creating a relaxed and lasting riding experience.

What is our recommendation in terms of profile size and coating?
Wheelchair users with small hands should use the small CURVE profile. If you have normally-sized or large hands, we recommend choosing the larger CURVE L profile. Those who enjoy fast downhill rides in higher temperatures, should use the anodised surface.

Product information Handrim QUADRO
The QUADRO will push the limits of your mobility.
Who are the QUADRO handrims suited for?
For tetraplegics without triceps function.

What are the advantages of the QUADRO handrims?
Designed with the biomechanics of tetraplegics with no triceps function in mind, the profile of the QUADRO provides you with a considerably larger gripping surface than a conventional handrim. Featuring an extremely robust anti-slip coating, it offers you unsurpassed grip for efficient propulsion as well as maximum control during braking and when correcting the direction of travel.

About us

Company details

To Rethink Mobility
Improving the everyday mobility and quality of life of wheelchair users with the help of our products – this is what motivates us. With this goal in mind, we – four engineers and friends – founded the Dresden based company CarboLife in 2013. The initial impetus towards giving serious thought to the mobility of wheelchair users came from joint activities and conversations with a wheelchair-riding friend. These occasions opened our eyes for the development potential of handrims to improve the mobility of wheelchair users. Against this backdrop, we developed our CURVE handrim. It owes its perfect ergonomic fit to the imprints we created using modelling clay and which ideally represent the natural anatomy of the hand.

Striving towards our goal to offer every wheelchair user the handrim tailored to their individual needs, to date we have developed a range of innovative handrims in close cooperation with wheelchair users, physiotherapists and specialist dealers. Besides our internationally patented handrims, we manufacture extremely robust high-quality components for wheelchairs from high-tech carbon material. Mobility aids are a vital part of people’s everyday life. Therefore, it is part and parcel of our work to bring together functionality, aesthetic appeal and lifestyle to create a perfect product.

CarboLife stands for fair high-end products “Made in Germany”. We develop our products in Dresden and manufacture them there by hand complying with the highest environmental and quality standards. People and their individual requirements are at the centre of all we do and are the driving force of our ongoing innovation efforts. Looking back on many years of development engineering experience in the aerospace, automotive and shipping industries, we can rely on our extensive lightweight-construction expertise and develop light, functional and aesthetically pleasing products.
