I came across WheelAIR last year when a friend approached me about this amazing product. At that time I didn’t understand much about all of its benefits and I didn’t think too much about it until earlier this year when I went to Naidex to be a judge of the Naidex Changing Lives Award.
WheelAIR was a product in the competition so I became more familiar with it and realised all of its benefits.
I’ve now tried the product and then today I am here to talk it as I believe it will improve the lives of so many wheelchair users.
It is something that will change the game for wheelchair users.
WheelAIR is a backrest that blows cool air through your back making you feel fresher in the hot weather. If you are a wheelchair user you will understand when I say that in the heat it’s not fun at all to be sitting all the time.
Also for tetraplegics that don’t perspire it probably will be an excellent purchase as it will help you to keep cool. Another situation where it will help us is when we are playing sport because we get hot and sweaty and the wheelAIR backrest will help keep us cool.
So I’ve tried it for a week now and I have used it in 3 situations that made me feel much more refreshed. 1) The first was a meeting where the air conditioning wasn’t working properly and I was just fine after turning it on.
2) Last weekend I used it at the gym during an Insanity session…. oooooh I can’t describe that feeling. It was hot and the backrest made a big difference.
3) Happened today. It was a photoshoot in the sun where the temperature was 28 degrees…. lifesaver.
So this is my initial review and I hope to share with you many more situations where it will have an impact. If you also have one please let me know what you think.
They have some case studies you can take a look and see how it improves the lives of different people from different backgrounds. https://www.wheelair.co.uk/case-study-antony-cotterill/

I am so happy to demonstrate products that will help somehow.
As you probably know I am an ambassador for Parallel Global, formerly Parallel London. Parallel is growing & spreading to other cities. If you don’t know Parallel Global it is a fully inclusive set of races for all ages and abilities with no cut off times. Participants can choose between a 10K, 5K, 1K, 100m, 3K walk (new) or the Super-Sensory 1k and take part in a festival of inclusive activities.
For the first two years it took place in the Olympic Park in London and this year it will be announced soon. It has just been announced that Parallel Glasgow will take place on the 2nd September in George Square.
It is a fun day, where family and friends get together to do some activities and enjoy the festival. There is also the opportunity to try different sports and activities. You should check it out at their website http://www.parallellifestyle.com It is a true celebration of diversity and inclusivity.
