Different types of ice for skating
Ice skating is possible on many different surfaces:
On an ice rink
You can use a Lugicap Ice or Ice Perf in any ice rink in the
world. We're talking about real ice here, even if it's artificially produced and
maintained with special machines.
On a synthetic ice rink
You can also use a Lugicap Ice or Ice Perf on synthetic ice. You'll enjoy the sensation of skating and gliding, and maximum pleasure, without the cold!
On a frozen lake or river
It's great to be able to skate on ice with your wheelchair in the great outdoors. Frozen lake, frozen river, anything is possible! Just as for able-bodied skaters.
No matter what type of ice you skate on, Lugicap guarantees you unforgettable moments aboard your Sled Lugicap Ice or Ice Perf, unique ice skating equipment for disabled wheelchair users.
How does a Lugicap Ice skate work?
A Lugicap Ice or Ice Perf is a support for all models of 3 or 4-wheel manual wheelchairs.
So the disabled person doesn't have to change chairs. They stay in the comfortable chair they're used to.
The Sled Lugicap allows you to move around on the ice with an attendant.
The wheelchair is securely fastened to the Sled with quick adjustment by means of clamps or stops.
The 2 pieces of equipment are then perfectly connected.
Now you're ready for the thrill of sliding and skating!
How does ice skating work in a wheelchair?
A guide must accompany you on every outing. This person is responsible for propelling the Sled. Simply push the wheelchair with the rear handles.
Activities associated with Lugicap toujours equipment require a minimum of 2 people: a disabled person in a wheelchair and a companion.
How do you get the most out of skating in a wheelchair?
Comfort and safety go hand in hand.
People with disabilities need to be comfortable and secure in their wheelchairs. To avoid slipping with the movements, the speed...
If the person feels slippery in the chair, don't hesitate to tell us so we can adjust the position. This guarantees maximum comfort and gliding pleasure.
To ensure a safe installation for the disabled person, we recommend the use of a support harness, which we also offer as an option.
For wheelchair users, a Lugicap Ice or Ice Perf allows you to skate with family and friends.
New horizons, new infinite possibilities for leisure and freedom open up to you.
These incomparable gliding sensations are waiting for you.
