Smartdrive MX2+ Wheelchair Power Add on

Smartdrive wheelchair power add on

The SmartDrive MX2+ wheelchair power add on is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and is controlled using the very clever bluetooth controlled watch!

It sits underneath your wheelchair on the crossbar and is very easy to remove and put back in place with just one hand (for those active users who have the ability to reach to back of wheelchair) which also means it is very convenient for placing into the car when on the go.

It is capable of getting you up steep hills and rough terrain and it is compatible with both rigid and folding frame wheelchairs.

The SmartDrive MX2+ is a compact wheelchair power add on and weighs only 5.6 kg!

The Smartdrive MX2+ wheelchair power add on has two modes;

With mode 1 the power assist kicks in when you start turning the wheels and stops when you hold the rims. Whereas, mode 2 known as cruise control takes over once you get going and the speed depends on the push.

To stop in cruise control mode you must use the controls on the Bluetooth watch.

You must have the cognitive ability to control the SmartDrive MX2+ it e.g. if you go to hold the rims to slow down the smart drive sense resistance and therefore gives it more drive  – you must use the control watch in this case.

The manufacturer states that the drive unit and wristband have passed industry climate testing – considered rain/splash proof although complete submersion in water will cause malfunction.

Powerful – Cruises up hills and over thick carpet
Intuitive – Push to go. Tap brake to stop. It’s that simple
Simple – Turn on and go all day without charging
Flexible – Moves with you for wheelies and curbs
Lightweight – So light, you won’t even know it’s there and easy to put on and take off

Alber E Motion M25 – New model

Alber E Motion M25 wheelchair power add on Tel 028 92 67 70 77

NEW E-motion M25 – the push rim activated add-on that takes the strain off!

This is the latest model of the incredible E-Motion wheelchair power add on system from Alber and significantly lighter than the previous models.

The concept of the E-motion is ingeniously simple:  While moving, sensors built into the push rims measure your drive movement and provide you with the desired motor power. E-motion drive wheels are compatible with most wheelchairs using two discrete adapters.

This allows you to move, steer and brake your wheelchair with very little effort. With a weight of only 7.8 kg per drive wheel, the e-motion is one of the lightest active add-on drives available

Mastering everyday life often requires considerably more physical effort for wheelchair drivers.This effort sometimes becomes almost unsustainable with progressing age or illness. The Alber E-Motion M25 electric add-on drive is the ideal solution to master this challenge

How does it work?

Every pulse on the push rim is registered by a highly sensitive sensor and translated into the perfect amount of electric power assistance. As a result propelling a manual wheelchair becomes much easier

The electric motors that are integrated in the wheel hubs effectively support the wheelchair user which has to put in much less effort to travel greater distances or slopes.

 

 

Alber E-Fix E35 Joystick controlled wheelchair power add on

The Alber E-fix M35 wheelchair power add on converts a manual wheelchair in to a highly portable, lightweight joystick drive electric wheelchair.

This is ideal for users who require a joystick to control the power and may not have the ability to manually control the wheels themselves.

Key Features

  • Your manual wheelchair becomes a lightweight electric wheelchair
  • Small and compact, turns on the spot and is suitable for confined spaces
  • Easy to dismantle, it finds space in the back of any car
  • Ideal for transport, as no single component weighs more than 7.8 kg
  • Drive up to 16 km with one battery charge
  • Speed can be varied continuously from 0.6 to 6 km/h
  • Very easy to use, thanks to clever details like the „EasyConnex“ magnetic plug
  • Your wheelchair is simply retrofitted with the e-fix components – and you’re ready to drive.

 

 

Wheeldrive Wheelchair Power Assist

Wheeldrive power assist for wheelchair Belfast and Northern Ireland

The WheelDrive wheelchair power add on 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.

Key Features

    • Power assistance and continuous drive
    • Unique dual rim technology
    • Assist rim: Power assistance when self propelling
    • Drive rim: Continuous drive – no propelling required
