The Wheeleo quad point cane with wheels is the only walking aid where you only need one hand for continuous support.

Quick Overview:

  • Quad point cane with four rubber wheels
  • Ensures a safe, stabile, and smooth stride
  • Modern and compact design with adjustable height
  • Activating, user-friendly, and always by your side.

One-handed walking frame

Wheeleo have developed the world’s first multi-point cane with wheels, which combines the effortless and smooth stride, usually associated with a walking frame, with the compact and stable design of regular multi-point cane. With its four massive rubber wheels, the  Wheeleo will ensure optimal safety and support without compromising mobility, thus enabling its user to preserve and cultivate their independence, confidence, and happiness.   

  • Smaller and lighter than a walking frame, and therefore easier to handle in tight spaces.
  • The continuous grounding of the Wheeleo means that the user does not need to lift the cane from the ground between each step.
  • Allows its users to move both faster and more smoothly, when compared to a regular multi-point cane.
  • A scientific study* showed that a 22 % increase in walking speed during spontanious movement, amongst people suffering from hemiplegia, as well as a 50 % increase in walking speed during 6-minute walking tests.  
  • General satisfaction increase amongst Wheeleo consumers,  compared to users of a traditional multi-point cane.  

Safety and Stability  

Tripping and falling can oftentimes have serious physical and mental consequences, wherefore many people choose to acquire some kind of walking aid – even before the damage is done! Thanks to its rolling design, the Wheeleo will always stand perfectly upright by your side.  

The Wheeleo will, similarly to a walking frame, always move forward rather than tilting. For this reason, brakes are not required to prevent the user from falling. On the contrary, adding brakes to Wheeleo would actually increase the risk of the stick tilting. As Wheeleo write on their website: 

“After use of Wheeleo®, this question [regarding brakes] is generally not relevant for the majority of patients.” 

Should the user lose his/her balance, the user would automatically push the Wheeleo to a stable and natural position, without having to lift the cane off the ground. Furthermore, the Wheeleo is height adjustable, and can therefore be adapted to the specific needs of its user.  

Who can benefit the Wheeleo 

The Wheeleo provides the same continous and smooth stride, usually obtained with a traditional walking frame, combined with the compact and sturdy design of a traditional multi-point cane. We therefore sometimes refer to the Wheeleo as a one-handed walking frame. For this reason, the Wheeleo might be beneficial for a lot of people with various disabilities or challenges, such as: 

  • Muscle weakness, cramps, arthritis, or similar disabilities 
  • People with paralysis on one side (hemiplegia) 
  • People with reduced strength in the arm or hand, or other disabilities involving the hand or arm 
  • People with visual disabilities  
  • Suitable for rehabilitation purposes after a fall, illness or brain injury, such as a stroke  
  • Suitable for people where a walking frame would be too large / unhandy, while a cane or a traditional multi-point cane would not provide sufficient support 

Check out what Wheeleo costumers have to say:  

I couldn’t believe it. Once in my hand it changed my life completely. I left my walking frame in the hall, but the Wheeleo is always close to me!”  

“Unstable Wheeleo? Try it, it’s the complete opposite!” 

“It’s like I always have someone at my side to help me walk. A real life companion! And so reassuring!”
