Push more easily
E-motion merges active mobility with therapeutic benefit. Even wheelchair drivers with impaired strength can move around independently with the help of e-motion.
Users have a chance to stay mobile while exercising their vital functions. The load on muscles and joints is relieved. Only minimal force is required to drive the chair alone and the driver’s radius of action is increased. e-motion makes an important contribution to its owner’s independence.
An excellent choice
The modern drive concept, based on a powerful electric motor and ultra long-lasting lithium-ion batteries, have already earned e-motion M15 the title “Focus Green 2008″, an international design award presented by the South-West German region of Baden Württemberg.
A manual wheelchair with extra thrust
Thanks to the gearless drive technology and the exceptionally low noise level, you can get to where you want to discreetly and quietly.
The wheels have electric motors integrated into the hubs to support the wheelchair driver’s pushing force. Each pulse 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 pulse, so that driving 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 radius of action and unprecedented durability are guaranteed.
State-of-the-art battery technology
The lithium-ion batteries integrated in the wheels are a world premiere from Alber. They provide a significantly extended range and last much longer than conventional battery types. Maintenance free with no memory effect – enjoy the benefits of full battery power!
Fits to your needs
E-motion fits most of the wheelchairs normally available on the market. The old wheelchair 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 chosen as an alternative to the e-motion wheels. The desired method of motive power – manual or electrically assisted – is always available in other words.
Ideal for out and about
Apart from its driving performance, e-motion also impresses with its handling convenience and easy transport. You benefit from a significantly extended radius of action that adds to the enjoyment of outings or holidays.
The e-motion wheels and their integrated batteries can be dismantled 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.
