This On-Demand Power-Assist’ for Wheelchair Gives Users an Extra Boost Up Steep Hills, Ramps with a Simple Tap

This is the SmartDrive MX2 + with a Push Tracker by Permobil. It’s a lightweight power assist for manual wheelchairs that supplements the exertion needed from users with a simple tap of the hand, a gesture, or the push of a button and an extra boost is given – when and where the user needs it.

This “On-Demand Power-Assist” takes the stress out of pushing a manual wheelchair, which can strain shoulders and could lead to other issues. This SmartDrive helps users to go up hills and ramps, over thick carpets, and enjoy extended distances without over-exertion.



The SmartDrive is equipped with a PushTracker or a PushTracker Bluetooth wristband, which enables gesture-activated controls and activity tracking technology as well as a SwitchControl that gives users an additional programmable option for controlling their SmartDrive. It can be activated in different modes – one for a momentary burst of power or a latched mode for consistent power over lengthy distances.
