WheelDrive is a new generation of assistive product that helps manual wheelchair users in their mobility. Unique in this design is the two-hoop propulsion system. The large hoop offers extra motor support, which makes the device less strenuous to operate. The additional small hoop offers continuous support when the user propels the hoop, automatically prompting the wheelchair to move. The user can choose which hoop he or she wants to use at any time and in every situation.
Thanks to the “true snap on” principle, the WheelDrive is compatible with virtually all makes of wheelchair, without any adjustments being required to the wheelchair itself.
WheelDrive was developed by Indes in close partnership with Handicare.
The development of Power Assist Technology® is a cornerstone of our business. This flexible electric powered platform powers a range of products, offering auxiliary support to wheelchair users, patient hoists or e-bike bits, to name but a few examples. Power Assist Technology systems are developed in-house and manufactured by us.
