Auxiliary drives

Improving independent mobility

Auxiliary electric drives can be combined with a manual wheelchair. By connecting the auxiliary drive, which can usually be done in just a few steps, the manual wheelchair is complemented with the electric drive. Thanks to the auxiliary drive, independent mobility can be significantly improved for many users.

Here is a small selection:
