A Van Raam wheelchair bike in your daily life

With a wheelchair bicycle in your daily life

On a daily basis, people in a wheelchair often face challenges. Getting from A to B is often frustrating for many wheelchair users. Because the strength is sometimes lacking, and some barriers and distances cannot be covered with a wheelchair or you are bound to your wheelchair. A Van Raam wheelchair bicycle can help wheelchair users in their everyday life, even if you cannot get out of your wheelchair.

This help can be a great support in the private sector as well as in the care sector. If you want to go outdoors more often in your private life, go on excursions with your family or just want to experience more freedom, a wheelchair bicycle is a great help in everyday life because it gives you the possibility to be mobile. For example, the car can be simply left parked for short distances and also a ride in the nature is good for the soul on the one hand and on the other hand your body also benefits from this variety.  

  • Variety in everyday life and good for body and soul
  • Cheaper than the car
  • Family excursions are possible again
  • More mobility and freedom  
Wheelchair bicycles are also very popular with nursing homes, retirement homes and other care organizations for the reasons just mentioned. We receive regular notifications that wheelchair bikes have been delivered to organizations. Please have a look at the following articles.


Of course, you can also rent a bike, for a weekend, on holiday or just for fun. Furthermore, there are several initiatives and bicycle taxi organizations that offer this. Have a look at some bicycle rental and bicycle taxi projects below.

OPair wheelchair bicycle

The OPair wheelchair bike is a combination of wheelchair and bicycle. At the front, the passenger is seated in a comfortable seat. The rider of the bicycle has a good view of the road and the passenger from behind. The front part of the bicycle can be easily detached from the bicycle part in the optionally detachable version so that it can be used as a wheelchair on site. The wheels with a slight camber give the bicycle additional riding comfort and stability.
