Invacare’s range of powered wheels are sold under the Alber brand – a German electro-mobility company holding over 50 patents for the design and build of powered assistive devices for wheelchairs. Alber powered add-on kits are designed to be fitted to most types of self-propel wheelchairs, including the active and standard wheelchair ranges.
Powered Wheels can transform a self-propelled wheelchair into an electrically assisted wheelchair with as little effort as it takes to change the wheels. Drive motors are built into the hub of the wheel providing additional power to your every push. With Twions, for example, the effort you put in is mimicked by the motors, giving you controllable and predictable assistance.
