The concept of the e-motion is ingeniously simple: You can combine the e-motion drive wheels with almost any wheelchair using two discrete adapters. While moving, sensors built into the push rims measure your drive movement and provide you with the desired motor power. This allows you to move, steer and brake your wheelchair with very little effort.
The e-motion gives you the extra thrust you need to master each day, but also the extraordinary things in life on your own and without help. With a support speed of up to 8.5 km/h and built-in lithium-ion batteries, the e-motion has a range of up to 25 km. So, you do not have to worry about recharging in between and can enjoy your independence to the full.
The sensitivity of the push rim sensor can be adjusted independently on both drive wheels. So strength in one arm is not a problem. With a weight of only 7.8 kg per drive wheel, the e-motion is one of the lightest active add-on drives available.
No matter whether longer distances, slopes or a few kilos more in your luggage, the e-motion supports you in every situation, even when braking downhill. This is ensured by its highly efficient and pleasantly noiseless electric motors. With e-motion you expand your radius of action, keep moving and train your vital functions. At the same time, you permanently protect your muscles and joints from overwork. This way you will always reach your goal relaxed and still be active!
With the optionally available ECS remote control, you can switch the e-motion on and off comfortably from your seat and switch between two different assistance levels for indoor and outdoor use. A special learning mode is also available for inexperienced drivers, which gently introduces you to the handling of the e-motion thanks to a particularly smooth setting. If required, you can also use the ECS remote control to activate the patented roll-back delay of the e-motion. It automatically holds you on the spot for 5 seconds as soon as you let go of the push rim when driving uphill. This leaves you with enough time to reposition your hands without the wheelchair rolling backwards.
It goes without saying that e-motion also makes full use of the benefits of Smartphone technology. The free e-motion Mobility App provides you with several pre-set driving profiles:
