TIRALO : an amphibious wheelchair for disabled persons

WHAT IS A TIRALO ?


An amphibious wheelchair


The Tiralo is a wheelchair for the beach for people with reduced mobility, but which differs from standard wheelchairs in the following two ways:

The Tiralo is an amphibious wheelchair which enables the user,

to move along the ground and float on water

without any modifications to the wheelchair.

It moves easily on any type of terrain, sand or gravel, and enables a passenger with an attendant to go to the beach, and bathe when the sea is calm.

The Tiralo was designed to serve a different purpose to other beach wheelchairs, which are meant for people who can maneuver their chairs by themselves or for rides where an attendant pushes the wheelchair.

The Tiralo is a wheelchair which must be steered by a responsible attendant both on the beach and in the water.

A disabled person can enjoy bathing in the sea up to the waist if the attendant strictly observes the basic safety instructions.
