Smartdrive MX2 wheelchair power assist – New generation now available from John Preston Healthcare Group
The new generation MX2 Smartdrive is now available and this leading wheelchair power assist system has a number of excellent improvements on the previous Smartdrive MX1 model;
- The battery is integrated into the main unit so is not attached to your chair
- It is controlled by a very clever bluetooth wrist watch which detects your movements
For anyone new to researching power assist devices for wheelchairs, the Smartdrive MX2 attaches to the cross bar of your wheelchair on a simple bracket and can be put on and taken off very easily.
You then propel your wheelchair and the Smartdrive senses the speed and effort and then matches it – think of it like ‘cruise control’ for your wheelchair!
It will help you get up steep hills very easily and over thick carpet.
It can be used on both rigid wheelchairs and folding frame wheelchairs. There are a number of options so that you get the right brackets and fittings for your exact wheelchair and we can help guide you through this – just call us on 028 92 67 70 77 anytime.
Many wheelchair users suffer from RSI ( Repetitive Strain Injury ) and using a device like the Smartdrive MX2 will help alleviate the stress and strain on your arms and shoulders. It reduces the amount of pushes you have to make by taking over once you get going.
It has an anti-rollback feature that allows you to stop on a slope and then easily get going again. It will go for miles on a single charge. Turn on and get out there!
