Nu Drive Evo wheelchair system in UK and Ireland

NuDrive EVO 

Nu Drive Evo in UK and Ireland from John Preston Healthcare Group Tel 028 92 67 70 77

The NuDrive Evo is an innovative lever propulsion accessory for manual wheelchairs that gives the user an alternative to manually pushing the wheelchairs by gripping the wheel rims. The lever when attached to the wheels (standard 24″ metal spoke wheels) allows the user to move forwards, backwards manouver and brake simply by pushing on the lever.

Designed here in the UK this breaking technology is the brain child of Aspire Centre for Disability Sciences at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.

The NuDrive Evo is easy to attach and remove giving the user greater independence and allowing them to move around with greater ease.

NuDrive Evo consists of two Drive Units and two Wheel Adaptors; one pair for each wheel. Its ‘Snap-Lock’ technology allows the Wheel Adaptor to be fitted in seconds, without altering any of the wheel configurations.

NuDrive Evo enables easier forward and backward propulsion, manoeuvring and braking and features an inclusive control system for driving and braking that requires no hand or finger dexterity – all control is achieved through easy arm and shoulder movements.

To propel the chair, first put NuDrive Evo into ‘drive mode’ with an effortless outward flick of the levers. Once in ‘drive mode’ you can propel yourself forwards simply by pushing the levers.

To brake and steer, pull the levers inward, towards the body. NuDrive Evo’s intuitive braking system also makes reversing easy: first return to ‘neutral mode’ with another outward flick of the levers, and then using the product brakes, grip and move the wheels in the desired direction.

 Product Benefits

  • Reduces the force needed to be propelled by 40
  • Protect hand/wrist and improves hygiene
  • Reduces the risk of injuries and strains to the users shoulder
  • Easily attached to most manual wheelchairs (with 24″ metal spoke wheels)
  • Larger, easy to operate finger catches for effortless removal of the Wheel Adapter and Drive Units
  • Great for use both in and outdoors , and is easy to transport
