See the NuDrive Air in action

NuDrive is the innovative lever-drive propulsion accessory for manual wheelchairs, providing more mobility for users whilst 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.

The ‘Snap-Lock’ technology allows each of the wheel adaptor levers to be fitted in seconds, without altering your current wheel configurations. Once in place, the lightweight design adds no width to your chair and can be left unobtrusively positioned on the wheel. 

Steep hills and slopes can be tackled without assistance.  Operating at a 50% increased efficiency compared to traditional wheelchair steering, the NuDrive Air not only improves user independence but promotes a healthier lifestyle – ultimately the technology changes the way people live.  Moreover, the users’ hands are protected from dirt and the need to wear gloves is eliminated.

What’s more, the levers can be attached to almost any wheelchair with 22, 24 and 25-inch spoked wheels. If you require a customised handle, be it curved or longer in length we can manufacture a solution to suit your specific needs.

The NuDrive can the be removed and placed back into the carrying case when not in use.
