The E-motion manual wheelchair add on merges active mobility with therapeutic benefit with its power assist wheels that provide easy motion in just one push. It’s ideal for those with impaired strength and helps people pushing a wheelchair as the power assist wheels require little effort. It features a modern drive concept based on a powerful electric motor inside the wheel hubs. E-motion will fit almost every standard manual wheelchair and it is easy to dismantle for transportation.
e-motion merges active mobility with therapeutic benefit. Even wheelchair users with impaired strength can move around independently with the help of e-motion.Users have the opportunity to stay mobile while exercising their vital functions. The load on muscles and joints is reduced. Only minimal force is required to self propel the chair and the user‘s active range is increased. e-motion makes a vital contribution to its owner’s independence.
Thanks to the gearless drive technology and the exceptionally low noise level, you can get to where you want to discreetly and quietly. e-motion has electric motors integrated in the wheel hubs to assist the wheelchair user’s pushing force. Each stroke on the push rim is detected by e-motion’s intelligent sensors and converted to precisely the required degree of power assistance – a kind of power steering function for wheelchairs. With this extra thrust, even long distances,
ramps or slopes can be overcome without having to rely on a helper. e-motion even lets you go downhill: its power assistance boosts the braking force, so that going down a steep slope is not only safe but also a relaxing experience. The energy for this purpose is supplied by ultra high-power lithium-ion batteries, so that a wide active range and unprecedented durability are guaranteed.
e-motion fits most of the modern wheelchairs normally available on the market.
The chair‘s original wheels can simply be exchanged for e-motion drive wheels. In virtually every case, your existing, individually adjusted wheelchair can thus continue to be used. It takes just a few small brackets to fix the drive wheels to the frame of the chair. As a rule, the manually operated wheels can still be used as an alternative to the e-motion wheels. In other words the desired method of motive power – manual or electrically assisted – is always available.
Ergonomic Control System [ECS] The new ECS combines therapeutic benefit with individual adjustment. e-motion can be switched on and off from an upright sitting position using the remote control. In addition, two selectable power stages assure optimal driving convenience – precisely adapted to each user’s personal mobility restriction and needs.Wheelchair users will also appreciate the rollback delay, which prevents the chair from rolling backwards down a slope and is an invaluable aid on steep hills. The high-contrast display shows the battery charge as well as various service and diagnostic codes. Thanks to the large buttons, all functions can be easily accessed even with restricted hand function. Numerous parameters, such as the assistance level or after-running of the motor, can be freely programmed with the ECS by your therapist or dealer according to your specific requirements.
Apart from its driving performance, e-motion also impresses with its handling convenience and easy of transportation. You benefit from a significantly extended active range that adds to the enjoyment of outings or holidays. The e-motion wheels and their integrated batteries can be detached from the wheelchair and stowed away in the boot of a car in a matter of seconds. Alternatively, any folding wheelchair can still be folded even with e-motion attached, thus saving space. The battery charger supplied with e-motion adapts automatically to any mains voltage from 100 to 240 V – an immense advantage for all those who like to travel. If part of the journey involves flying, the batteries can also be disconnected from the wheel and carried separately.
The functions of the standard e-motion model can be extended with useful accessories according to individual requirements.
