the rugby wheelchair

Matthew Buck

“I’ll be able to turn quicker, push quicker, not get tired every 20 minutes… I’m sitting higher so I will be able to reach the ball more, plus the seat is more slanted which means the ball should sit in my lap better, freeing up my hands to turn the chair rather than stop myself dropping the ball. I’m so excited to get on court with this chair!"

Matt Wooloff

"RGK have worked fervently, taking feedback and ideas from players like me, and have produced a chair that can stand up to the physical rigors of the game I so love. I look forward to taking my game to a whole new level in RGK’s latest masterpiece"
