The wheel-e traction device allows you easy and independent progress in your own wheelchair. Be it pavements, forest trails or paths through a meadow, up or down hills: The comfortable BionX P 250 drive system pulls the wheelchair and user without the use of muscle power. It is operated via a throttle grip on the handlebars. The drive system provides high torque of up to 40 Nm and runs silently.
You can choose from various rechargeable batteries with a range of up to 100 km. The twin rechargeable batteries have a change-over plug connection , so that you can switch between both batteries in just a few simple steps. The batteries are compatible with the NJ1 e-assistant with BionX drive systems and can therefore be used for both traction devices. Downhill, the recuperation (battery charging) can be activated in 4 stages. The recuperation increases the range by 10 to 15 % and reduces the work the braking system has to do on the hill. Powerful and high-quality brakes taken from bicycle manufacture ensure precise braking and a safe ride.
With the lower positioning of the batteries there is a lower centre of gravity, this provides optimum weight distribution and traction as well as good driving characteristics.
The wheel-e is delivered with a display showing the electrical drive system, this supports a maximum speed of 6 km/h. With this equipment, the wheel-e can be used in public areas and on the road. As an option, an additional display with a maximum speed of 15 km/h or 24 km/h can be ordered for use on private property. The displays can be quickly and easily swapped over depending on where they are being used.
