Quickie Xtender Power Assist for Manual Wheelchairs

Have the energy to go where you want to go!

The Quickie Xtender wheels provides power assist to a manual wheelchair, allowing users to maintain the look, control, and functionality of a manual wheelchair.  Developed by Quickie and Yamaha, the Xtender features motorised rear wheels that increase the force you apply to the handrims by 4 x times. This increases your range of mobility by reducing energy expenditure by as much as 45% and decreasing the burn of fatigue.

The Xtender’s electronically synchronized rear wheel units continually communicate with each other and adjust their speeds to facilitate smooth, straight propulsion. This helps overcome uneven arm strength to further increase propulsion efficiency, which may be particularly beneficial to users with hemiplegia, paraplegia, quadriplegia, or tetraplegia.

The Xtender’s quick-release wheels allow you to remove the entire motor/wheel assembly from the chair. This allows for easy transitions between traditional manual and assisted propulsion. Because the Xtender is used with manual wheelchair frames, it stores and transports just like a manual wheelchair.
