Wheelers' Paramill is a USA company founded by Larry Pestes of Oregon. After injuring his spinal cord in a motorcycle accident, Larry spent years researching ways for wheelchair users to rehabilitate and exercise independently and in a controlled environment. Thus the patented Paramill (wheelchair treadmill) was born and manual wheelchair users now have a new opportunity to achieve cardio workouts, strength conditioning, pulse and heart rate monitoring. SCI rehabilitation and athletic training exercise. The Paramill allows for stationary observation by trainers and therapists with performance and growth tracking capabilities. Accessible to both standard & athletic chairs, the Paramill's single or split roller options allow for customized rehabilitation and training in both forward or reverse motions. Discover for yourself why facilities around the world are bringing the Paramill into their locations.
“Wheelers’ Paramill had quick and efficient service!” Stefanie Veno, M.S. CCC-SLP, CBIS Rehabilitation Therapies UNC Hospital
The Wheeler’s Paramill is an innovative machine in the area of adaptive recreation and athletics. There are other products available that can provide stationary pushing for wheelchairs, but none that incorporate the technology that the Paramill does. Being able to easily monitor your speed and RPMs is a huge asset. In addition, you have the ability to alter resistance to run programs to mimic training on hills or specific road courses. It is a great tool for creating a training regiment by allowing the user to create a tailor-made training program as well as evaluate push mechanics.

I have recently had the opportunity to demo the new and improved version of the Paramill and was thrilled with the ease of use and the workout I obtained! I have little to no trunk control and I was able to independently attach to my wheelchair for stability while pushing and the capacity of machine to allow me to push backwards, in reverse, to use opposite muscle groups felt great and opened and expanded my chest wall. I love that I can use this indoors, and not have to worry about street dirt, weather, crime or broken sidewalks/streets! I was sore the next day and it felt great to be able to improve my strength and endurance. All rec centers, apartment and condos and public gyms should carry this great equipment for the “wheelers” in the community!
