Power Assist

Glide

Power up your ride!

The Glide power assist expands the range of mobility opportunities for self-propelling manual wheelchair users by adding power assisted wheels.   The Glide Power Assist can be fitted to almost any manual wheelchair and will increase your travel distance and propulsion efficiency while reducing overall fatigue.  All this while allowing you to maintain the look, control, and functionality of a manual wheelchair!

The system works with you.  Software measures your propulsion abilities and can be set to compensate for any differences in strength..  For example if your right arm is weaker than your left the software can compensate the balance; which in turn will enable you to move in a straight line.
