Wheeldrive Wheelchair Power Assist
Wheeldrive is an innovative new design of wheelchair power add on featuring a unique dual drive hand rim which offers both continuous drive and power assist. The power assist is ideal when you simply need a little extra help when struggling up hills or going the distance. The continuous drive mode is like cruise control control for your wheelchair - just hold your hand on the smaller inner rim and your chair will power itself. This dual drive feature gives you the best of both worlds in that you can retain the active elements of your manual wheelchair but you can turn on the cruise control feature to turn your manual wheelchair into an electric wheelchair.

The innovative WheelDrive power assist is designed to make driving your wheelchair easier - in every situation. And it offers therapeutic benefits at the same time. Due to its unique dual rim concept, WheelDrive not only gives power assistance while self-propelling, it also allows for continues drive. Enjoy more freedom and stay active – in your own manual wheelchair!
WheelDrive 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.
After prolonged manual wheelchair use, you can experience arm pain and shoulder pain or a decrease in strength. WheelDrive reduces the strain on muscles and joints, and helps to prevent these problems. At the same time, active mobility or exercise is stimulated, allowing you to stay active and independent.
Do you experience arm or shoulder pain, or a decrease in strength? Does your energy level fluctuate a lot during the day? Or is it just too demanding to propel your wheelchair all the time? Then you can benefit greatly from the WheelDrive power assist. However, WheelDrive is also a great solution if you are physically fit and simply want to go further!
Please note that single-hand operation and foot-propelling are not compatible with WheelDrive. In case of decreasing cognitive capacities or spasms the use of this wheelchair power add-on is advised against.
