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. Enjoy more freedom and stay active – in your own manual wheelchair!
WheelDrive features a unique dual rim concept. The large ‘assist rim’ provides extra power assistance while self-propelling your wheelchair. Choose from three support levels, each with their own specific driving characteristics. The small ‘drive rim’ gives you continuous drive at three speed levels - like a 'joystick on the wheel', no effort required. Naturally, switching between both rims is easy. So you always get exactly the support you need!
Using your wheelchair with WheelDrive power assist wheels feels very natural - it is very much like regular self-propelling. You can easily switch the system on and off. Determine the level of support or speed you want and you will soon find how easy it is to switch between both rims. The top speed is 10 km/h (assist rim) / 6 km/h (drive rim). When driving down a slope, the motors will brake automatically - for maximum safety and security.
After prolonged manual wheelchair use, you can experience arm pain and shoulder pain or a decrease in strength. WheelDrive 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.
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. 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 this wheelchair power add-on is advised against.
