NUDRIVE has won the Danish Award for the Best New Rehab product!
NuDrive is the innovative new lever-drive propulsion accessory for manual wheelchairs, providing more mobility and improving physical well-being. With NuDrive you don’t need to propel your chair by gripping the wheel rims by hand; instead, you can propel yourself forwards, backwards, manoeuvre and brake, simply by pushing the levers.
Its ‘Snap-Lock’ technology allows the Wheel Adaptor to be fitted in seconds, without altering any of the wheel configurations. Once in place, the lightweight design adds no width and can be left unobtrusively positioned on the wheel also allowing unhindered removal of the wheels for transport. When you want to use NuDrive, the Drive Units can simply be clicked into place and then removed when finished.
There is extensive evidence to show that prolonged over-exertion during manual wheelchair propulsion can result in chronic damage to the shoulder joint and other structures. The risk of damage is thought to be higher for children because of their lower upper body strength. Recent medical research has highlighted the fact that propelling a wheelchair using the push rim produces high directional shoulder forces, and this correlates with coracoacromial arch pathology as shown by an MRI scan, and also physical discomfort. That research recommended that researchers and clinicians find ways to reduce the forces and moments experienced by the shoulder during wheelchair propulsion Modified wheelchair design including a new method of self propulsion is a way to achieve this, without the loss of freedom for the chair user.
