Tire puncture repair kit or solid tires to prevent puncture

The tire puncture repair kit makes it possible to quickly repair punctured wheelchair tires.

Description
The product is made for cars. If a puncture occurs, spray a sealing rubber material and air into the valve of the wheel. Afterwards, roll the tires for awhile to distribute the rubber material in the wheel. The wheelchair can also be placed on blocks and run in place (photo 1). Another option is to take solid tires to avoid punctures (photo 2).
