E-Support power add-on drive for Manual Wheelchairs
With the E-Support power add-on drive, you are mobile. It supports you optimally in your independent mobility in the manual wheelchair and increases your activity radius. With an additional therapeutic effect: You can once again cover longer distances and move your arms over longer time periods in the process. This promotes circulation, trains your musculature, and supports your activities.
Ready for Longer Trips within Seconds
You can replace the push rings of your manual wheelchair with the E-Support in just a few easy steps. The wheelchair can also be folded to its normal size and stowed in a space-saving manner even with the auxiliary drive installed.
The servo principle is the decisive factor for the E-Support: Highly sensitive sensors measure the amount of force you apply to the drive wheels and boost it electronically. You can select between two versions. The first version supports your strength by one and one-half times. That means you provide 40 percent of the power and the E-Support provides 60 percent. With the second version, the E-Support provides 75 percent. Of course, safety is not disregarded: Your wheelchair does not travel faster than seven km/h with the E-Support and automatically brakes on downhill grades. Your trip becomes more relaxed and endurance and safety are improved.
The E-Support is not only suitable for manual wheelchairs made by Otto Bock, but also for many other makes. Your rehab technician will advise you regarding the various options.
