Wheelchair Temperature Control System

Meet the Maker: Wheel Air



Wheel Air have set out to design a long-lasting and life-changing product for wheelchair users, one which looks and feels like nothing else on the market, and which provides an almost instant impact.

The WheelAir system is the first temperature control system designed to fit any wheelchair. It disperses air evenly across your back to lower your core temperature, keeping the skin dry and clean. This helps to avoid symptoms caused by overheating and over sweating, allowing you to stay comfortable and in control.

Research demonstrates the necessity to keep your skin dry and clean, and Wheel Air have created a tool to help you do this. WheelAir reduces the temperature of the back 8˚C in 30 minutes and lowers relative humidity. Wheel air helps your sweat evaporate quicker with by gently blows the air from around you onto your back, lowering the relative humidity to accelerate the sweating process and keep your clothing dry.

Take control of your body temperature. Heat and moisture is wicked away from your body, while Wheel Air reduces your back – and body – temperature, leaving you cool and refreshed.

The Sling Back VW is a canvas backrest but taken to the next level, combining function and effortlessly stylish (and silent) design. The WheelAir backrest combines carefully selected fabric and foams to enhance your back support and comfort. Available in 6 widths to fit all manual or power chairs with a tension adjustable strap system.

The Sling Back has

  • 24 hr Battery  Life
  • 6 Cooling Settings
  • Wireless Remote Control
  • Low Noise
  • USB-C Recharge
  • Machine Washable Removeable Cover.

Integrated rigid back rests are available from some partner suppliers – When extra support is needed, a rigid back might be more suited to your needs. We have partnered with rigid backrest providers so that the WheelAir System comes pre-installed. Can’t find your favourite brand? Drop Wheel Air a line and they will see what they can do.

Coming Soon – Powerchairs naturally come with lots of features, yet cooling was never one of them… until now. Wheel Air have partnered with power chair companies to integrate the WheelAir System during the manufacturing process, so that all you need to do is select the option at point of purchase.
