Nudrive : NuDrive

NuDrive is the innovative new lever-drive propulsion accessory for manual wheelchairs, providing more independence and improving physical well-being. With NuDrive you don’t need to propel your chair by gripping the wheel rims by hand; instead, you can propel yourself forwards, backwards, manoeuvre and brake,simply by pushing the levers. Existing clinical research indicates that lever-drives shift the shoulder loading and can reduce shoulder degradation and injury. NuDrive makes the benefits of lever-drives available to wheelchair users at an affordable price; simply attach NuDrive to your existing chair and start enjoying greater independence today.

Benefits:

  • Reduces the force needed to self-propel by up to 40%
  • Protects hands and wrists, and improves hygiene
  • Improves posture
  • Reduces the risk of shoulder degradation and injury by shifting shoulder loading
  • Easily attaches to almost any manual wheelchair with 24" metal spoked wheels
  • Lightweight Drive Units (1.5kg) and Wheel Adaptors (1.1kg) can be transported easily
  • Great both indoors and outdoors, on normal or difficult terrain
  • Can assist users up to 21stone / 136kg

NuDrive has been designed to assist manual wheelchair users with a range of disabilities and medical conditions. NuDrive can help you get around much easier – whether to the shops, at work, around the house or even outdoors. It is easy to attach and simple to operate. This breakthrough technology has been designed by one of the UK’s leading product design teams, in association with the Aspire Centre for Disability Sciences at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore. Wheelchair users were consulted throughout the research to ensure a truly user-led product with a high level of medical efficacy. The Wheel Adaptor adds no width and allows unhindered removal of the wheels for transport.

NuDrive consists of two Drive Units and two Wheel Adaptors; one pair for each wheel. Its 'Snap-Lock'
technology allows the Wheel Adaptor to be fitted in seconds, without altering any of the wheel configurations. Once in place, the lightweight design means it can be left unobtrusively positioned on the wheel. When you want to use NuDrive, the Drive Units can simply be clicked into place and
removed when finished. NuDrive enables easier forward and backward propulsion, manoeuvring and braking and features an inclusive control system for driving and braking that requires no hand or finger dexterity – all control is achieved through easy arm and shoulder movements.

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. NuDrive's intuitive braking system also makes reversing easy: 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.
