Product Description

Power-Assisted Wheelchair Systems

Rehasense’s new range of PAWS fit to the front of almost every active wheelchair on the market that has a fixed front frame rather than swing-away leg rests. They incorporate built-in motors and lithium batteries, as well as intelligent controls.

All PAWS feature a 48V 11.6 Ah Lithium battery that offers a range of 25 miles and can be easily removed to recharge in 5 hours. A lower capacity Flight Battery is available as an optional extra, and is IATA compliant for air travel. Inclusive powerful multifunction headlamps ensure visibility, and can be set to automatically activate in low-light conditions.

PAWS Tourer FAT

The Tourer FAT comes as standard with a huge 20×4.0″ tyre and an optional motocross tyre upgrade for the most extreme conditions! It also benefits from the largest wheels and longest wheelbase of any PAWS, improving traction and stability.

PAWS Clamps

Other manufacturers’ wheelchair clip-ons require bracketry or clamps to be bolted permanently onto your wheelchair’s frame which adds unnecessary weight, as well as taking away from the looks of your wheelchair. The PAWS range have their clamping mechanism built in meaning no clamps or brackets are left on your wheelchair when not in use.

Simple clamping is available in two ways:

  • Manual clamps – line up your wheelchair and push the long levers to clamp the PAWS on. Push forward on the handlebars to lift the front of your wheelchair off the ground, and you’re ready to go!
  • Powered clamping and lifting – as the name suggests, just line up your wheelchair, press a button and the clamps automatically affix to your wheelchair, and then raise you up ready to go. This upgrade is available on every PAWS and allows effortless loading.

Both methods are much easier to operate than traditional clamping mechanisms, but it is the automatic clamping and lifting that is the star attraction of the PAWS range – ideal for those with limited dexterity or upper body strength who struggle with manual attachments on other models. Even if that doesn’t apply to you, the powered clamps are still much easier to operate, and thus well-worth considering!

PAWS Controls

Two handlebar configurations are available on your PAWS – either Standard controls or Tetra controls. The Tetra controls are designed for people with limited hand strength or control, and allow easy driving without exertion. Both handlebar variants can be adjusted between multiple positions to provide a comfortable fit for you.

Featured modes are forwards and reverse, a “walk mode” that propels you at a steady 4 kmph, and cruise control that removes the need to constantly grip the throttle to maintain a steady speed. Traction mode can be enabled for stationary starts on slopes or slippery surfaces, while track assistance helps to keep you straight and sure.

The front disc brakes are controlled by handlebar-mounted twin brake levers – these can be operated by either one hand or both, when heavy braking is required.

All the information you want about your PAWS’s performance is available at a glance on the colour display screen, which automatically adjusts its brightness based on ambient lighting conditions to ensure visibility. All electrical components have an IPS4 waterproof rating so you can ride in wet conditions with full peace of mind.
