Power Assist

Power Assist System is designed to help you reach new levels of independence.

Operates as per normal manual wheelchair but with the assistance of a drive motor. The slightest of inclines that were once difficult now seem like you are pushing down hill. The Power Assist System can be fitted to most of the Glide G2  and Quickie 2 Manual Wheelchairs.

The Power Assist (Glide) and Xtender™ (Quickie) expands the range of mobility for manual wheelchair users by adding power assisted wheels to a manual frame. The system increases your travel distance and propulsion efficiency and reduces overall fatigue while allowing you to maintain the look, control and functionality of a manual wheelchair.

Motorised Wheels Developed by Yamaha,

Power Assist features motorized rear wheels that increase the force you apply to the handrims by four times! This increases your range of mobility by reducing energy expenditure by as much as 45% and decreasing the burn of fatigue. Research has also shown that the Power Assist may help reduce or even prevent the occurrence of secondary injuries to the wrists, elbows, and shoulders including Repetitive Strain Injury.
