Trilobit is developed as a multifunctional locomotive aid that promotes an active life style for the physically challenged. Every Trilobit module is fully interconnected with the functions of a wheelchair. Users can buy an active wheelchair for everyday basic mobility and separately, buy a specific Trilobit module for their leisure activities. In this way, they do not have to buy a complete sports wheelchair that is usually bulky and expensive.
The main element of the Trilobit is the central frame with a universal seat to which stabilising components are connected. There is a front and rear axle with wheels and additional fittings such as a backrest, armrest, storage box and a drive unit. With this range of optional accessories, the frame and seat can be quickly converted into a specific sports or leisure aid. This helps people with disabilities widen their range of activities in life.
The available options of modules are: handcyle module, in-line skating module, sledge skating module, mono-ski module and a bi-ski module for cross-country skiing. A full range of adaptability and extension pieces are also available depending on the user’s needs. Trilobit modules are light in construction, easy to assemble (and disassemble) and compact for storage – especially important when a car is travelling with several wheelchairs and sports equipment.
