Extra product information

The chair is switched on using a small light touch button located to the side and front of the seat.
Operates as per normal manual wheelchair but with the assistance of a drive motor which accentuates the force applied through the push rims. The user steers the chair using the hand rims.
The wheelchair occupant must use only the push rims as the micro processor senses the force being applied to the rims and applies double (Type A) or triple (Type B) that force.
If there is discrepancy in muscle strength between the upper limbs, a combination of Types may be utilised to bias one wheel.
The system does not sense force being applied to the tyres.
Braking of the chair is achieved through pressure or grip on the push rims.
The micro processor detects the resistance and ceases applying drive force to the wheels.
The manual wheelchair brake is used in the usual way for 'parking'.
