The Axle Bracket is a rear wheel position adapter for wheelchairs designed to provide additional height adjustability for the axles on a wheelchair without drilling the frame. Two 9 mm aluminum plate brackets bolt into the existing adjusting holes on a wheelchair frame. The wheel axle can be bolted to the adjusting slot on the bracket. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Andre Paquette for a user who could not adjust the seat height on the wheelchair low enough. Modifications by the wheelchair manufacturer proved to be very expensive. This bracket is intended to extend the range of adjustability without harming the frame's structural integrity.
Notes: Tetra is a voluntary organization which links persons with disabilities, technical volunteers, professional engineers, technicians, and tradesmen. Persons interested in having this device made for them should contact Tetra.
