Our specially designed rear wheel adapters offer 48 different wheel settings and adapt to your unique size and driving style. You can also fine tune your seat angle and height to get perfect positioning.
Motus leg rests swing in and out and can be released with one hand. They’re so lightweight they even stand up on their own when removed, making them easy to grab after transfers.
The Motus handles have a sleek profile and easy grip. Also available as an option are flip down handles that lock in place for a sturdy grip.
Optional elevating leg rests have high pivot point, which allows better positioning and extension of your legs.
