The RGK Veypr Sub4 is the world's first truly made-to-measure carbon fibre wheelchair achieved through it new proprietary and pioneering manufacturing process inspired by F1 technology.

This made-to-measure wheelchair pushes the limits on optimizing posture, performance, and comfort like no other.
