Gecko Traxx is a portable tyre that wraps around the existing on-road tyre of a 24-inch wheelchair and gives off-road capability, enabling easy access to the beach, snow and gravel and soft, off-road terrains. They can be carried in a small backpack and easily fitted while seated in the chair making travel and outdoor adventure a breeze. The innovative and unique cross-section design is unobtrusive when fitted to the wheelchair and expands when in contact with the ground.

The wheelchair tracks were developed by wheelchair user Huy Nguyen and Ryan Tilley.

The product is eligible for NDIS funding under a self-managed plan and will be ready to ship towards the end of October. Get in quick for Early Bird discounts.
