e-Dragonfly electric assist handcycle for wheelchair. Use of the e-Dragonfly reduces strain on the users shoulders when travelling on long journeys or tackling a steep gradient.

The e-Dragonfly attaches to the front of most rigid frame wheelchairs and even some folding models of manual wheelchairs.  

The e-Dragonfly features a 2 point Lever activated attachment making it much easier to attach and dettach from your wheelchair compared to the previous 4 point attachment.

The e-Dragonfly handbike has an ergonomic design that makes it easy to manoeuvre and control in a range of directions, including on slide slopes.

The large front tyre allows the user to go over obstacles that castor wheels cannot and built in coaster brakes let you control your speed without removing your hands from the handle. Suitable for use both for children and adults the Dragonfly can be adjusted to accommodate the user.

The attachment itself is light, easy to attachment and when attached fits securely to the chair. The The Dragonfly fits on most rigid frame wheelchairs and even some folding frame wheelchairs.

The standard pack includes both a set of 1 inch and 1.25 inch clamps.    

We also offer 1.125 inch clamps and oval shaped clamps for the likes of the  Quickie Helium and the Quickie Argon models. 

Please contact us to discuss compatibility with your current wheelchair.

Benefits of handcycling compared to propelling by pushrim:

Many wheelchair users who propel using their pushrims encounter shoulder issues given the unnatural motion required.

The rotator cuff damage can be mitigated by employing the more natural motion of a crank handcycle such as the Dragonfly or E-Dragonfly.

Additional options: 

Enhanced Warranty Package: £125.00 including VAT

Considering buying an electric wheelchair, mobility scooter, electric rise and recline chair, bath lift, hoist  or electric profiling beds? 

As manufacturers’ warranties do not in general include callouts and labour, we highly recommend our  “12 Months Enhanced Warranty Support "  which covers the cost of call outs and labour to diagnose faults and fit warranty parts for up to 3 call outs in year one. 

Should your product develop a fault we will always try to diagnose the problem by telephone to provide the quickest solution.   

If you opt in to the enhanced warranty support we will appoint a competent person to call out and fit parts under warranty and there would be no charge incurred for the call out and labour. 

If you don’t opt in to this service, we can either despatch the parts via courier for you to appoint your own fitter or we would offer to arrange a chargeable call out for an engineer to visit.   

This enhanced warranty option doesn’t cover the cost of call outs and labour to repair or fit parts not covered under warranty due to damage or customer misuse.   In the event of non warranty parts requirements labour and call outs are chargeable at the standard rate.

Installation and Plumbing

Some of our products will require installation by a qualified person such as a plumber, electrician or engineer. This includes the installation of Stairlifts, overhead track hoists, Biobidet toilet washers, level access shower trays and our range of bath tubs. Please contact us if you require this service as this is not included in any of the above options.
