E-Motion Wheelchair Wheels

Electric Wheels for Manual Wheelchairs

Power Assist for Wheelchairs

These wheels have electric motors integrated in the wheel hubs to support the wheelchair driver's pushing force. E-motion wheels fit most wheelchairs on the market and can be interchanged with the manual wheels. Each push on the wheel rim is detected by e-motion's intelligent sensors and converted to power assistance. This allows the user to travel long distances, up slopes or over ramps independently.

What is the maximum weight of a person who uses the twion?

How far can I get with one battery charge?

Due to the drive technology of the twion the attainable range is highly dependent of the particular conditions of use.

How fast does the twion drive?
