Melrose Wheelchairs Melrose Wheelchairs


The Melrose Wolverine is our custom built Lacrosse Wheelchair and these are fabricated after careful consultation with the athlete. They all comply with International rules of the WLAX.

All our Lacrosse Wheelchairs are built by highly experienced fabricators who are working for a company that has over 17 years involvement in building sports wheelchairs. As a small customer focused company we encourage you to talk directly with the fabricator of your new wheelchair to ensure you get the product you desire, this is a service we are committed to offering you.

We use the highest quality materials and components to build our wheelchairs, many of the components are built in-house by our team of qualified engineers using the latest CNC technology.

Some of our design features include:
 - wings mounted to the front that sit flush to the rear wheels are designed to fend off opposing wheelchairs,
 - fixed camber between 10º to 20º to increase on-court maneuverability and assist wheelchair stability, and
 - rear anti tips to allow most of the weight to be centralized over the camber bar to increase your on-court maneuverability.

Lacrosse chairs with various wing alternatives can be built, if you are a particularly aggressive player for example we would strengthen the wings and attachment points.
