RUGBY LEAGUE SPORTS WHEELCHAIR

The Melrose Warrior is our custom built Rugby League Wheelchair.

As a fairly recent sport the technology for these chairs has already been developed with the light weight of the Melrose Basketball wheelchair and the strength of the Melrose Rugby wheelchair. We have combined these two ideas with a light weight 1" frame built with 1.5" bottom rails. The bottom rails are further reinforced with 1.5" tubes to the capped 1.5" wing for additional strength. Although Wheelchair Rugby League is a non contact sport, experience has taught us that a strong wheelchair will perform better over extended time.

All our Rugby wheelchairs are built by highly experienced fabricators who understand the sport of rugby. As a small customer focused company we encourage you to talk directly with the fabricator of your new wheelchair to ensure you get the product you desire, this is a service we are committed to offering you.

We use the highest quality materials and components to build our wheelchairs, many of the components are built in-house by our team of qualified engineers using the latest CNC technology.
