NuDrive is the innovative new lever-drive propulsion accessory for manual wheelchairs, providing more mobility and improving physical well-being. It consists of two Drive Units and two Wheel Adaptors. With NuDrive you do not need to propel your chair by gripping the wheel rims by hand; instead, you can propel yourself forwards, backwards, maneuver and brake, simply by pushing the levers.
The wheelbase units don’t add any width to your wheelchair and with a weight of just 1 kg each you can keep them fit without even noticing they are there. But should you decide to take them off, this is also done in seconds.
To propel the chair, first put NuDrive into ‘drive mode’ with an effortless outward flick of the levers. Once in ‘drive mode’ you can propel yourself forwards simply by pushing the levers. To brake and steer, pull the levers inward, towards the body. The NuDrive’s intuitive braking system also makes reversing easier: first return to ‘neutral mode’ with another outward flick of the levers, and then using the product brakes, grip and move the wheels in the desired direction.
NuDrive AIR can also be delivered in an EASY CONTROL version that requires less arm strength when flipping between driving mode and neutral mode. So if you find it difficult to flip the levers between the modes EASY CONTROL could be an option for you.
