power assist experience
The innovative power assist add-on WheelDrive for manual wheelchairs provides users an unprecedented experience; more mobility with less pain, less fatigue and less energy consumption. Regardless of the situation, users always get the support they need.
Who can benefit
At Indes, we feel all manual wheelchair users could benefit from the (occasional) use of a power assist device. Power assist devices are designed to support users in their daily activities. Instead of making the user more passive, like a full electric wheelchair, the add-on of a power assist device helps to stay active. Especially WheelDrive, with its unique dual rim concept, encourages the user to keep propelling with the support of the Assist Rim. But it also supplies continuous support with the Drive Rim.
As the area of use of WheelDrive is broad, we have identified several fictive users, to give an impression who could be a suitable user for WheelDrive. Of course, these profiles do not limit the possibilities. If you have questions whether an user could benefit from WheelDrive, feel free to contact our distributors or Indes to help you with information.
