Power Assist Systems - for Power Assisted Wheelchairs
Turn a manual wheelchair into an electric wheelchair with a power assist add on device. Power assist wheelchair devices are a middle ground between the manual and the power wheelchair. A power assist device can provide a whole lot of extra freedom for wheelchair users. Allowing for much further travel, and with less effort. An easy way to think of a power assisted device is as an electronic attendant that helps out with regular self-propelling. Add on drives provide power assistance to all kinds of manual wheelchairs, including standard wheelchairs and lightweight active wheelchairs. The add on system can also be configured to give the user more control over their powerchair.
There is a lot of power add on devices on the market today, and many with their own specific driving characteristics. The key features of extra power assistance models depend on how they help the user get about. Some focus entirely on the drive wheels, with a drive rim or ‘assist rim’ feature. This gives an extra boost to users self-propelling on the handrim. Some even have a continuous drive or ‘cruise control’ feature for wheelchair power add ons with adjustable speed levels.
Our wheelchair power assist devices are compatible with most wheelchairs, no matter the user weight.
