About

As beach lovers, we have created a wheelchair for everyone to be able to enjoy the beach without limitations.

Como amantes de la playa hemos creado una silla de ruedas para que todo el mundo pueda disfrutar de ella sin límites.

The SandRoller was born to fulfil a need we found and it was developed in the Universidad Politécnica of Valencia as a final degree project. After that, we set up a team to make the project real and now we are really excited about bringing it to you.

La SandRoller nació de observar una necesidad y se desarrolló en la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia como un proyecto final de carrera. Para llevar este proyecto a cabo hemos formado un equipo y os lo presentamos aquí con mucha ilusión.

GEARBOX SR 

What we call gearbox SR is an epicyclic single speed ½ ratio train. This means that when you push the rim, the wheel turns at half speed but with double torque. This way, you only have to apply half the force you would otherwise need to overcome the high rolling resistance of sand.

Lo que llamamos gearbox SR es un tren epicicloidal de ratio ½. Esto significa que cuando impulsas el aro, la rueda gira a la mitad de velocidad pero transmitiendo el doble de par. Esto hace que tengas que aplicar la mitad de fuerza para vencer la alta resistencia a la rodadura de la arena.

 RIMS / AROS

Due to the width of the special wheels, we had to design specific inner rims between the seat and wheel for the mechanism.

Debido al ancho de las ruedas especiales, hemos tenido que diseñar unos aros interiores a propósito para esta aplicacion los cuales estan situados entre el asiento y la rueda.

 AMPHIBIOUS / ANFIBIA

SandRoller has been created to allow active bathing in the sea. When you seat in the chair while you are in the water, the wheelchair won't float. This way you will be able to get in and out of the SandRoller easily. Every part of the SandRoller has been designed to resist the beach environment and salty water.

La SandRoller ha sido creada para tomar un baño activo en el mar. Cuando estes en el agua subido en la silla, esta no flotara, de esta manera podras subir y bajar de la silla facilmente. Todas las piezas de la SandRoller han sido diseñadas para resistir el ambiente playero y el agua salada.

TRANSFER / TRANSFERENCIA

The single arm frame has been designed to allow an easy transfer.

El diseño monobrazo del chasis ha sido pensado para permitir una transferencia fácil.

TRANSPORTABLE

The Sandroller is detachable to allow it to be transported to any beach.

La Sandroller es desmontable para que la puedas llevar a la playa que mas te guste.

If the campaign is successful we will start working to build the most radical beach wheelchair you've ever seen. The following are the goals we hace set for this campaign.

Si lo conseguimos no pararemos hasta conseguir fabricar la silla de ruedas de playa más radical que jamás se haya visto. A continuación os contamos cuales son nuestros objetivos.

SandRoller's interview on Levante TV

Risks and challenges

Our risks would be two:

The first risky situation would be the manufacturing of the special wheels, a wheel of these dimensions has never been built, but we've contacted with a company with enough experience in producing pieces of this characteristics. Since the manufacturing of this part will be externalised, there might be a delay that is not on our hands entirely, so we have kept some extra time to be able to solve any problem in this regard.

The second one would be the international shipping. The volume and weight of the SandRoller is high, so it makes the shipping quite expensive. That's why, once we know the number of chairs to be shipped, we will try to find a way to deliver them more inexpensively.

Nuestros riesgos serían dos:

El primero sería la fabricación de las ruedas, nunca antes ha sido fabricada una rueda de estas dimensiones, pero para esta misión hemos contactado con una empresa con la experiencia necesaria en piezas de estas características. Al no depender de nosotros la fabricación podría surgir algún retraso, pero hemos dejado un tiempo extra para anticiparnos a la solución de este problema.

El siguiente problema sería el envío internacional porque por su peso y tamaño el coste es elevado y nos gustaría reducirlo. Una vez sepamos el número de sillas a enviar a cada destino intentaremos encontrar la manera más económica de envío.
