The innovative WheelDrive power assist is designed to make driving your wheelchair easier - in every situation. And it offers therapeutic benefits at the same time. Due to its unique dual rim concept, WheelDrive not only gives power assistance while self-propelling, it also allows for continues drive. Simply choose the support you need and enjoy more freedom and stay active – in your own manual wheelchair!
Improved functions to support the user
Improved serviceability & refurbishment:
Improved durability & robustness
The roll back stop provides an easier and safe hill climbing. The WheelDrive will avoid rolling back while driving up a slope when there is no forward movement of the assist rim.
After prolonged manual wheelchair use, you can experience arm pain and shoulder pain or a decrease in strength. WheelDrive power add-on reduces the strain on muscles and joints, and helps to prevent these problems. At the same time, active mobility or exercise is stimulated, allowing you to stay active and independent.
The WheelDrive wheels can be easily mounted on virtually any lightweight or standard wheelchair, without any additional parts or changes to the chair. So you can continue to use your own manual chair, adapted to fit your specific needs. Of course, you can swap back to the original manual wheels as an alternative at any time - no tools required.
Do you experience arm or shoulder pain, or a decrease in strength? Does your energy level fluctuate a lot during the day? Or is it just too demanding to propel your wheelchair all the time? Then you can benefit greatly from the WheelDrive power assist for wheelchairs. However, WheelDrive is also a great solution if you are physically fit and simply want to go further.
Please note that single-hand operation and foot-propelling are not compatible with WheelDrive. In case of decreasing cognitive capacities or spasms the use of WheelDrive is not recommended.
