    Lever pushed Wheelchairs

    I did some research about this Idea about pushing manual wheelchair using levers rather than pushing directly into wheels and saving or increasing power @ this way.
    Here are my findings:

    Slovenian company, www.Mycycle.si unknown on this continent claim some amazing performance. See some of their Movie Clips.

    Also well known companies in this field are here:
    Wijit,
    Renegade
    MIT Mobility Lab developing Lever pushed wheelchair for countries in third world.
    UK company Nu-Drive is riding on same idea with pretty elegant looking solution.

    That's what I have found so far....please add your findings.

    I never try any of listed above and I don't have personal connection with any of them ...I would like to test some, though as pushing on slopes for me sometimes can be hard....

    The Nu-Drive looks cool... wonder what the Cost is ?

    I want to see them going down some steep inclines... and does it mean you no longer have the ability to wheelie?
