Introduction to CarboLife

CarboLife is a manufacturer of wheelchair handrims founded in 2013 by a group of engineers and designers who wanted to make life easier for people with disabilities. The company's mission is to improve the quality of life through innovative products.

Strong similarities unite Aria and Carbo Life, both were born from a personal need that could not find any solution in the mobility aid market.

The idea of producing wheelchair handrims

The initial impulse to work for the mobility of wheelchair users arose from conversations with a wheelchair-riding friend of the founders. These occasions opened their eyes to the potential of developing handrims to improve the mobility of wheelchair users. In this context, the first handrim, the CURVE, was developed. It owes its perfect ergonomic fit to the imprints by using modelling clay and which ideally represents the natural anatomy of the hand.

People and their individual needs are at the heart of all the work behind Carbo Life and are the driving force behind the continuous innovation efforts. Many years of development engineering experience in the aerospace, automotive and shipbuilding sectors have ensured a solid basis for creating the lightest handrims on the market that are internationally patented, functional and aesthetically pleasing.

CarboLife handrims models

With the aim of offering every wheelchair user the handrims tailored to their individual needs, we have developed a range of innovative handrims in close cooperation with wheelchair users, physiotherapists and specialist retailers. Each handrim has been tested by experienced users with different pathologies to ensure the best feedback for maximum product improvement.

The handrims meet all user requirements, such as full or limited hand functionality.

All CarboLife's handrims are available now in the Aria wheelchair configurators.
