Drive Assist for Wheelchairs

This concept has been introduced recently to allow people to keep the flexibility of a manual wheelchair, but have some power assistance on demand.

Abiliquip can provide these and integrate them into your mobility solutions.

The transition to a full-sized power chair comes with many and costly changes to the user's environment. Where it avoids the need for a power chair, the drive assist solution has many features in its favour:

- it can be added to an existing manual wheelchair, saving the very high cost of a power chair
- the chair can be used in manual or assisted mode, promoting retention of activity and fitness as required
- the major benefit of avoiding long periods of stress on the shoulders, by maintaining a speed once established

Avoiding a full power chair saves the major vehicle modifications which will usually require
- a new vehicle - generally a large van
- a very heavy, 300kg capable lift for powerchair and person
- the internal modifications to anchor the powerchair to allow driving from it, or transfer into the driver's seat
