Alber Eco Fix
Medical equipment manufacturer Invacare Corporation has announced the introduction of its next generation of power assist devices for manual wheechairs – 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, as it is easy to take on and off a manual wheelchair for travel and more compact vehicles.

Another benefit is its convenience, with the way it offers power when the user needs it, or it can be used in free-wheel mode to propel manually with ease.

Its ‘attendant control’ feature is a control unit mounts to the back canes to give a caregiver control of the chair for easier mobility.

Michael Salvi, Director of Manual Mobility & Seating for Invacare Corporation, commented: “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’.”

Both the standard e-fix and e-fix eco are available through dealers now.
