Adding power assisted wheels to a manual frame. Have the energy to go where you want to go!
The Quickie® Xtender™ expands the range of mobility for manual wheelchair users by adding power assisted wheels to a manual frame.
The Xtender 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.
Developed by Quickie and Yamaha, the Xtender features motorised rear wheels that increase the force you apply to the handrims by 4 x 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 Quickie Xtender Power Assist Device may help reduce or even prevent the occurrence of secondary injuries to the wrists, elbows, and shoulders including Repetitive Strain Injury.
Rollback Prevention and Downhill Speed Control
The user-friendly Xtender features several functions that require zero programming, including Rollback Prevention and Downhill Speed Control. During hill climbs, Rollback Prevention maximizes your efficiency and reduces fatigue. Downhill Speed Control ensures a smooth, safe descent.
