Power Assist is an amazing innovation which can help people to continue using their manual wheelchair when it seems that there only option may be to go into a full power wheelchair.
Many clients experience increased fatigue due to their diagnosis or shoulder pain due to arthritis or repetitive strain from many years of propelling. Power assist wheels bring power to a manual wheelchair frame through motors and batteries which are incorporated into a customized wheel.
When pushed or pulled a pulse of energy is supplied to the motors which add momentum to the user’s energy. This allows the user to go longer distances with less fatigue and pain.
