the removable power assist unit

Adrianne Flaye

“Without the assistance of another person I was completely unable to leave the house by myself until I purchased the Smartdrive. Since owning it, I've been able to catch the bus and get myself into town, go to my local hospital and doctors surgery, run my own errands, go shopping, walk my dog, and the best part is being able to leave the house for hours on end as the Smartdrive helps me conserve a lot of much needed energy. I no longer need people to push me while we're out and about and it's been genuinely life changing! For me, it's been worth every penny!"

Pop on your axle and away you go!

The SmartDrive MX2 reduces the number of repetitive pushes you do by taking over once you get going. The MX2 Push Tracker bracelet has an amazing tap to go function starts and stops the SmartDrive with just a simple movement of the wrist, perfect for impaired hand function or strength. The wristband also changes the mode of operation, tap sensitivity, top speed and much more. The SmartDrive acts like a cruise control which you set by the speed of your push.

Technical specifications

The anti-rollback feature allows you to stop on a slope and then easily get going again. It will go for miles on a single charge. In addition, the smartphone app that links to your bracelet tracks your day-to-day propulsion metrics to give a complete picture of your mobility activity, including push count and coast time. Use it to monitor your habits, reduce injury risk, improve quality of life and share your journey as you explore the outdoors! Both the PushTracker and SmartDrive wirelessly update as new software upgrades are released, saving you any unnecessary hassle.

"I love my SmartDrive because it allows me to hold my
wifes hand rather than pushing my chair"
