SmartDrive MX1+ Power Assist - HCPCS E0986

SmartDrive with curbs Living Spinal would like to introduce the SmartDrive MX1+. A revolutionary wheelchair power assist device from Max Mobility. At a combined weight of 19.8 lbs. between the battery and motor, the SmartDrive MX1+ is a portable yet powerful assist device that can help you navigate your wheelchair over thick carpet, grass or padded flooring and easily powers you up steep hills and ramps.

One of the best parts about the SmartDrive is how it prevents against wear and tear on your upper body. Use the technology provided in the SmartDrive MX1+ to save your shoulders and joints from overuse.

The SmartDrive's easy to use, intuitively intelligent design uses your natural push to go and brake to stop. Moving the hand rims operates the 250W motor, which has a range of 10 miles on a full charge. That equals a few days of use for the average user.

SmartDrive mounted to crossbarThe new MX1+ version of the Smart Drive really sets the standard for assistive devices when it comes to steep slopes and hills with an indoor / outdoor mode that can take you from a range of 1.5 to 4.5 mph depending on the amount of force you use to push yourself forward. Give it an easy push to go slow or give it a few quick pushes and the SmartDrive will increase speed to a maximum of 5.5 mph. This gives you the freedom to roll slowly next to someone who's walking, or roll faster with someone who's jogging.

The SmartDrive MX1+ also has an anti-roll back feature that allows you to stop on a hill or slope and then easily get going again and start rolling up hill. Easy installation and removal gives you the freedom to take it anywhere. All the while allowing you the freedom to move with you, hop off curbs and do wheelies. You will not even notice it is there. Not to mention, it looks sleek mounted under your chair.

SmartDrive with everything included from Living Spinal The SmartDrive MX1+ was built for the active wheelchair user. The battery, at 8 lbs., mounts easily under your seat sling by sliding onto the sling itself with a clip. The 11 lb. motor attaches to an easy to install hitch on the axle sleeve of your chair. It fits on almost any chair including folding wheelchairs. The SmartDrive buttons, which operate the indoor / outdoor mode, mount easily with Velcro straps to either side of the frame so you don't have to take your hands off the hand rims to activate them.

What are you waiting for? You know you want one. Contact a Living Spinal customer service representative now for more information and options on purchasing the SmartDrive MX1+.

    Arnold Experience with LS June 17, 2015
    Reviewer: Jas Arnold from San Diego, CA United States  
    Hi LS Folks,
    So far, so good. Your team seems to be very service oriented. A gimp such as myself appreciates the first hand understanding of my mobility issues.

    Power and Versatility December 2, 2014
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Diego, CA United States  
    As a T10 para the Smart Drive definitely gives me all the power I would need in an assistive mobility device while at the same time the versatility to use it only where and when I need it. At the mall, amusement park or long trips hitch it on and go. Easy to hitch on easy to remove. The biggest benefit for me is it's saving me from long term physical wear and tear on my shoulders and elbows. Smart Drive is a Smart Choice.
