1300 885 886 Independent Living Centres Advisory Service

A power assist device that can be attached to a manual wheelchair to provide additional propulsion. The single unit power pack is controlled via a wireless Bluetooth bracelet which is worn by the user. The battery is built in to the single unit making it compact to fit to rigid and folding manual wheelchairs. An attendant control button is available as an accessory.

General Details

Method of Use

Cruising Power Assist
With the power assist ready [the drive unit and wristband both on and wirelessly connected], the SmartDrive is able to recognize when you have performed a push on the wheelchair. In turn, the device activates the omni-drive wheel, and an assistive drive power is provided, propelling you at a speed equal to that which was attained by the push. The SmartDrive is able to recognize each individual’s push, so no alterations to one’s propulsion technique is needed. This is ideal for everyday use as it
reduces the number of pushes that have to be performed. Push recognition and motor activation is indicated to the user by a
vibration in the wristband and the LED being illuminated solid blue.
The SmartDrive is designed to continue to drive the user until a tapping motion is performed by the wristband worn arm
or the wristband is turned off [as described in the Power Assist Ready section] OR until another, faster push is performed. In this last case, the SmartDrive will speed up and begin to drive the user at this faster speed attained when the user pushed harder [a single vibration will be given while the LED on the wristband will continue to stay lit blue]. Once a push is performed and the motor is activated, position your hands over your handrims [and thumb throttle buttons, if present] to be prepared to turn off the motor when braking/deactivated power is desired.

Caution

Smartdrive MX2 Use

Do not operate over significantly rough terrain, very slick surfaces, extreme slopes, or loose ground. This may cause a loss of traction, leading to injury or damage to your SmartDrive and void the warranty.

The SmartDrive is not designed to drive up or down large curbs/steps. Only perform this maneuver when absolutely necessary and always ask for help. Also, be sure to turn off your SmartDrive wristband.

With regards to driving up and down slopes, please adhere to the instructions and specifications given by the diverse
wheelchair manufacturers.

Factors to Consider

If you are travelling via air with the SmartDrive MX2, you will need to print off the SmartDrive IATA Certificate so you can carry the unit onboard.
