BE FREE WITH SMARTDRIVE

The SmartDrive gives you freedom to do more. It moves with you and it’s so lightweight, you don’t even know it’s there. You can spin in place, be in a wheelie, or hop off curbs. It is compatible with your active lifestyle.

 

  • SmartDrive MX2+ PushTracker
    The NEW SmartDrive MX2 + now with the PushTracker wristband makes the already award-winning wheelchair power assist even better—it will truly change your life. It can power you up steep hills and through thick carpet. It’s intuitive to use and will go for miles on a single charge. Turn on, get out there and rediscover your independence!
  • Powerful

    The SmartDrive is surprisingly powerful. You can cruise up the steepest ramps and sidewalks. Even a thick padded hotel carpet is no problem. It even has an anti-rollback feature that allows you to stop on a hill and then easily get going again.

  • Customizable

    Now with PushTracker the SmartDrive power assist can be individualized, allowing tweaks to the tap sensitivity, top speed and more. Also equipped with different selectable modes, you can easily pick the one that is best for your desired activity level and needs. But no matter what mode you chose, using the SmartDrive is intuitive and easy.

CONTROL MODES
  • MX1: Push to go, coast and then brake on the handrims to stop. The original SmartDrive operation that is great for indoor use. 
  • MX2: Push to go, coast and then tap brake to stop. The Normal operation the SmartDrive has come to be known for to easily take on any indoor or outdoor environment. 
  • MX2+: Double-tap to start ramping up the speed, tap to coast at your current speed and then double-tap brake to stop. A game-changing operation giving weaker pushers the power to activate the motor at the tap of the wrist. See the Quickstart Guide (click here) for more details.
EASY INSTALL
  • The SmartDrive is lightweight and easy to install. The system weighs only 12.5 lbs (5.7 kg) and simply attaches on the back of the chair. It can be fit on essentially any make and type of wheelchair, including folding, tilt-in space, one-arm drive and standing.
All about you.

We see a wheelchair the same way you do. As an extension of you. Not just of your body. But of your personality. Why? Because many of our employees are also Wheelchair users. They depend on our chairs as much as you do. And they’ve learned through experience how to use design, technology and creativity to improve lives.

ACCESSORIES (SOLD SEPARATELY)
  • Thumb Throttle Buttons: These are a great accessory to the SmartDrive. They can be mounted in unique positions and used in a variety of ways. Mounting by the rear wheels gives you added control and operation. Putting on the chair’s push handles an attendant can then activate the SmartDrive at a comfortable walking speed, for assistance up ramps, grades and over long distances. Or a combination of the two! See the Instructional Video (click here) for more details.
  • Standard and Large (Demo) Carrying Bag: Both are great for carrying your SmartDrive and Chargers.

What is an immersion style wheelchair cushion?

Part 6 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3,Part 4, and Part 5.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guide here.

Immersion is another principle of pressure distribution, neither better nor worse than offloading. Whether it is better or worse depends completely on the patient’s individualized needs and what you as a therapist are trying to achieve.
Recall that the principle of offloading is redistributing pressure away from a small surface area onto a greater surface area that can withstand the constant pressure better, making a patient less likely to sustain a pressure injury.
Immersion, on the other hand, is the principle of conforming to the person’s curvature by “sinking the body in.” We allow the cushion and/or back support to take the body’s shape, alleviating the bony prominences from unwanted peak pressure to maximize pressure redistribution.

The Reality of Chronic Pain for Wheelchair Users
Chronic pain is an unfortunate fact of daily life for many wheelchair users. Sometimes the pain is related to an injury, and other times it is related to being in a wheelchair for extended periods of time. Thankfully, there are some very effective pain management options available to wheelchair users.

What in the construction of an offloading wheelchair cushion allows for pressure redistribution?

Part 5 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3, and Part 4.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

Through the built-in contours of an offloading style cushion, the therapist can help align and stabilize the spine, pelvis, and LEs to allow the pressure and shear forces to be transferred from a smaller surface area to a greater surface area. The contours needed for offloading pressure are:
