The Firefly is a powerful compact electric handbike attachment for use with manual wheelchairs.

Use of the Firefly gives users the ability to go anywhere they want including over rough terrains and up steep gradients.

The Firefly can reach speeds of up to 12mph but we can limit this for you to suit your child’s abilities and circumstances.

The Firefly is great fun and young people in particular get great enjoyment from the freedom and independence it can provide and the fact that wheelchair use can become fun is a unique novelty.

The Firefly cannot attach to wheelchairs with 'swing away' front legs.

It is compatible with wheelchairs with a seat width between 14" and 22".

For narrower wheelchairs - please see the document in the 'downloads' tab that shows how the frame can be made to be more narrow.

For wheelchairs with a seat with of less than 12" then we can supply a custom built frame - just choose this option above.
