e-motion: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can the e-motion be fitted to my wheelchair?
A: E-motion wheels can be fitted to almost all conventional wheelchair models. A specially designed bracket is mounted on the wheelchair frame to support the e-motion wheels. The manual wheelchair wheels can still be used with the bracket attached.

Q: Which e-motion versions are available?
A: The basic versions of e-motion are listed below:

  • E-motion M14 (non-programmable) and E-motion M15 (standard with ECS)
  • Wheel sizes: 22" or 24"
  • Push-rims: Stainless steel (standard)
  • Tires: low-profile pneumatic tires (standard)

Q: What accessories are available for the e-motion?
A: Anti-tippers, spoke guards, cast metal ECS mounting hardware, neoprene pouches for ECS, spare battery packs, push-rim covers (dipped and removable), flat-free tires with solid inserts

Q: How far can I travel on a single battery charge?
A: The drive engineering employed in the e-motion means that the achievable range depends very heavily on the respective conditions of usage. Indoor movement involving continuous use of motor power for starting, steering, and braking reduces the range considerably more than consistent movement outdoors. A battery charge can be sufficient here for a distance of approximately 16 miles under favorable conditions.

Q: How fast is the e-motion?
A: E-motion does not have a definite maximum speed level. The speed achieved depends on the strength of the propelling movement, just like that of a manual wheelchair. E-motion assists the propelling movement up to 3.7mph.

Q: Are there weight restrictions for someone wanting to use the e-motion?
A: E-motion is designed for a maximum user weight of 286 lbs., regardless of the type of wheelchair being used.

Q: How much does the e-motion weigh?
A: 2 wheels: 25 lbs. each
2 batteries: 5 lbs. each
1 charger: 4 lbs.
