    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.

Wheelchair Prescriptions with Short Rehab Stays

Getting the appropriate wheelchair when patients are discharged so early is a common challenge these days with rehab stays getting shorter and shorter. The average inpatient rehab stays are now 7-10 days, with patients going home to receive Home Health services. Considering that an ultra-lightweight manual wheelchair can take weeks or months to get due to the process that is required, how can you ensure that your patients get the appropriate wheelchair?
First, when you do your initial evaluation be thinking about whether your client may need a wheelchair when going home. If the answer is yes, treat your evaluation as if they are going to need a K0005 wheelchair, even if they initially go home in a lower end manual wheelchair for a short period of time. K0005 documentation should be more than sufficient to cover a lower coded chair so there is no real duplication of process.

Important Facts

Applications for ActiveReach™ & ActiveHeight™

ActiveHeight™ and ActiveReach™ is the dynamic combination of power seat elevation and anterior tilt function now available to power wheelchair users who rely on power seat functions to improve their health, function and participation in everyday life. The combination of ActiveHeight™ and ActiveReach™ allows the wheelchair user to perform tasks in a more ergonomically correct way, similar to how a non-wheelchair user would do. For example:

Alternative Funding for Standing

Not everyone has the luxury of having a funding source that pays for a power standing feature on a power wheelchair. If you are fortunate enough to have a funding source that covers standing, you are in the vast minority but good for you! Most payors follow Medicare’s guidelines to some extent which generally means they consider standing to be statutorily non-covered. This doesn’t mean you can’t get a standing system, but it does mean you will have to work a little harder to get it covered. Some insurance companies will make exceptions when the clinical documentation for standing is compelling enough. However, more times than not, you will need to explore alternative funding methods to get your stander.
