Light Drive

The Light Drive is a power add-on device that turns your manual wheelchair into an ultra-light, high performance electric wheelchair in 20 seconds!

The motor attachment simply hooks onto the rear of most rigid or folding manual wheelchairs.

Light Drive is operated by a joystick while maintaining the chair’s manoeuvrability – it stop’s when you let go of the joystick and has a 360-degree movement including full reversal

By releasing a clutch, you can choose when to switch between assisted power or manual use.

Safety is an important factor with a downhill braking feature in place that automatically controls your decent.

Benoit Systems have designed the Light Drive to be a robust & reliable power assistance add on for your manual wheelchair.
