v-max & v-max+

The pushing and braking aid for your wheelchair


Make your manual wheelchair mobile with the pushing and braking aid v-max. Slopes, divided ramps and gradients are not an unsurmountable problem for you and your attendant any more. The Pushing- and braking aid v-max supports you in all situations. 

Let yourself have more freedom —

with the v-max you make your manual wheelchair mobile



The wheelchair is powered directly at the rear wheels. The advantage of this technique is the permanent and very efficient transmission of power. You can effortlessly overcome slopes up to 20 %. The maximum total weight admitted (person, wheelchair plus device) is 200 kg. An almost limitless mobility is at your disposal due to the v-max.

Our powerful battery pack allows for a range of 19 km depending on the weight of the person to be transported as well as the terrain‘s surface. The speed going forward is continuously adjustable up to 6 km/h, going backward up to 3 km/h. The v-max is mounted to the lower part of the back rest allowing full leg space for the attendant. It merely weighs 8.2 kg and the battery pack 10.2 kg.

Intelligent technology —

at your service for your mobility

Sturdy, toothed wheels grip into the toothed wheel rim transmitting the power to drive or brake the wheelchair wheels directly.

Ergonomic design

in control and always part of things

It is important to be in control of the wheelchair at all times, but particularly on slopes. For the attendant this is a considerable factor to ensure your safety. Therefore, we designed the v-max‘s ergonomically formed grips which are particularly user-friendly and connected to the grips of the manual wheelchair. Should you not need the v-max at some point and you want to set it down, the grips support the device on the floor. The transportation of the v-max is simple and comfortable. It is easily removed and fits, along with your wheelchair, into almost any car boot.

v-max+

The powerful pushing and braking aid


Mobility is particularly important when carrying bariatric patients. Often only very short trips are possible because the attendant quickly reaches his or her physical limits. The pushing and braking aid v-max+ offers specific relief in this respect. v-max+ assists the attendant driving uphill, and it also brakes automatically when going downhill. The attendant gains security and longer trips are possible due to the powerful engine of the pushing and braking aid. The maximum total weight of the v-max+ including the wheelchair and the person is 300 kg. Assembly is possible from a seat width of 60 cm and more.
