Push and brake aid for wheelchairs

viamobil eco – the new easy way to push

No matter whether you are traveling uphill or downhill, on steep ramps, entrances or longer routes, viamobil eco, the electric push and brake aid for wheelchairs, helps the attendant to push the wheelchair as required. When traveling downhill, the automatic brake function massively increases safety. The intelligent suspension ensures comfort and a calm experience. These benefits don’t just take the strain off the attendant, they also give wheelchair users more control and allow them to enjoy being part of society.


”My wife finally doesn't have to work so hard to push my wheelchair."

Franz Z. from Duisburg

Space-saving – simply take it with you no matter where you go.

The components of the lightweight and compact add-on drive can be quickly removed from the wheelchair without the need for tools. Everything is quickly and easily arranged. Even in the smallest of trunks.
