Hi, I'm considering buying some wheelchair training rollers for my son. Can anyone suggest websites/where to buy?

    Here's one supplier:-
    http://www.invictusactive.com/product/invictus-active-trainer/
    Prices with Invictus Active seem to start at about £800 !!!
    Check out on eBay, it appears bicycle equivalents start at about £50.  I'd be tempted to buy two bicycle training rollers and weld or bolt or stick 'em together + a cheapo box for under your front wheels.  That should cost £130 max.
    Good luck!

    Yes the Invictus Active trainer rollers are very good I have one - not sure I'd recommend welding 2 bike rollers together! How are you going to get on it!? and then back off without any brakes!... I can honestly say the Invictus is good value, there is a lot more to it than meets the eye from the photo, lightweight and the rollers are angled to suit a wheelchair properly, it's a clever bit of kit. It connects to my phone too and records my speed (I'm trying to work out the calories and heart rate but it does that too). Hope you find your son something suitable and good that he want to keep fit!
