It has been estimated that 20,000,000 people in developing countries require wheelchairs for mobility. Approximately 6,700,000 of these people are children. A very small percentage of these people have a wheelchair and even fewer have one that is fit to their needs. ROC Wheels has put special emphasis on developing wheelchairs for children up to age 15 regardless of their level of disability
ROC WHEELS DOES MORE THAN GIVE A PERSON A WHEELCHAIR
We help design, develop and fit each wheelchair or other mobility product to each individual so they can function to the best of their ability. In order to better serve these people, we network with other individuals and organizations, to help provide a more complete range of services. We realize the importance of providing the right wheelchair that helps each person gain independence, interact with their peers and become a more active member of their community. Our ultimate goal is to help people help themselves.
