E-fix consists of pushrims with electrical motors sitting in the hub, battery pack and joystick steering. E-fix makes it possible to easily convert a manual wheelchair into an electric wheelchair. Pushrim, battery pack and joystick steering can quickly be installed and removed using the quick release/attachment function.
E-fix can be installed on most wheelchairs.

The user’s joystick is adapted with a cradle that enables him to steer the wheelchair.

Users comments
Erik uses e-fix on trips. When he flies he can drive right up to the plane and minimize the risk of damage to the wheelchair.
With e-fix he can even use any taxi at all. The parts fit in the trunk even in small cars.
