5 Top Facts about Wheelchair Castor Flutter
Castors are small wheels attached to the front support of a wheelchair base to offer forward, sideways, and backward mobility for users. Castors can either be mould, wire, or solid wheel type. Castor wheels are either pneumatic or non-pneumatic depending on user preference. Even though innovation in design and development of wheelchair castors has come a long way, improper installation can result to bumpy wheels, shimmying, or a tendency to move from side to side in a phenomenon called castor flutter.
