Wheelchair rugby is a full contact, aggressive, paralympic sport which is very demanding on it’s equipment. Sheath is a high performance wheelchair rugby seat designed to improve the athlete’s performance, comfort and reduce athlete injuries.
Existing slung canvas wheelchair seats are a significant contributior to player injury, primarily through transfer of vibration, pressure, and heat related injuries.
Sheath significantly reduces the transfer of game related vibration and impact shock while supporting the athlete’s game related movements and managing game related impacts. The whole seat design is fabricated one-off from standard parts to fit the wide dimensional requirements of individual athletes and wheelchairs.
