Invacare Corporation introduces its next generation of power assist devices – the e-fix eco.

The Alber e-fix eco Power Assist transforms a manual wheelchair into a portable power chair via a joystick, battery and in-wheel motors. Equipped with a new modern design for the wheel hub, color display, battery, and battery bag, the e-fix eco represents a significant upgrade from the previous generation. In addition, the eco features a clutch, multiple joystick options and energy recovering braking technology, which transfers power back into the battery.

The e-fix eco is a part of the e-fix family which offers numerous benefits to end-users including:

  • Enhanced Mobility and Independence – easy to take on and off a manual wheelchair for travel and more compact vehicles
  • Convenience – power when you need it, or use the free-wheel mode to propel manually with ease
  • Attendant Control – simple control unit mounts to the back canes to give a caregiver control of the chair for easier mobility

“Driven by our culture of innovation, we continue to expand our industry leading comprehensive portfolio of power assist devices. The new e-fix eco, our third new product in less than two years, follows successful launches of our award winning SMOOV and e-motion Power Assist products. We are excited to showcase the e-fix eco’s improvements as we continue helping end-users in Making Life’s Experiences Possible.”
