Alber’s simple, yet effective wheelchair power add on provides a quick and easy solution to getting around. The wheelchair add on Viamobil V25 Push and Brake aid can be quickly attached to most manual wheelchairs. The drive motor simply attaches to the rear of a wheelchair while the functional design of hand controls fit neatly onto the push handles of the wheelchair, providing a quick solution to pushing and manoeuvring a wheelchair. Designed to help people, it features powerful motors, state of the art battery technology and easy connections.
Alber is dedicated to your mobility
The idea behind Viamobil is so simple – and yet so clever: an add-on electric drive is retrofitted to your existing wheelchair. The strong electric motor relieves the carer, thus giving your mobility new drive. Viamobil makes pushing as well as braking child’s play. The physical effort previously needed on uphill or downhill gradients and on ramps is now definitely a thing of the past. Enjoy more independence in your everyday life whenever and, especially, wherever you wish. Viamobil can be combined with almost any wheelchair model. Simply select the wheelchair to suit your therapeutic needs and fit it with Viamobil. It is quick and simple to mount without the need for tools or technical skills. The wheelchair’s functions (e.g. foldability) all remain fully operational, and you benefit from far better comfort and mobility.
We keep you moving. Whatever the incline or surface
Once attached to the wheelchair, Viamobil gives you all-round, flexible mobility:
*Uphill and downhill slopes of up to 18% can be managed without any strain on the carer.
*The compact battery pack allows for an operating range of up to 20 km!
*The motor powers the wheelchair and brakes it as well. This increases safety, even on steep downward slopes.
*Viamobil fits on nearly all wheelchairs with a seat width of 36 cm or more – from standard to recliner wheelchairs.
Thanks to the centrally located drive wheel, the wheelchair is perfectly easy to steer. Even when going downhill, Viamobil provides extra safety: the motor safely brakes the wheelchair on downward slopes, thus considerably relieving the strain on the carer. The integrated spring system with the wide drive wheel results in excellent traction. viamobil gets you safely and reliably to your destination, even on difficult terrain such as grass or gravel.
Safe, mobile, simple. Intuitive steering technology from Alber
Intuitive steering technology ensures viamobil is easy and convenient to handle and enables carers to cover longer distances without any effort. The ergonomic, non-slip handle provides additional safety, and its symmetric design makes it suitable for left-handed as well as right-handed people. So your trip out together is a pleasure and not a challenge.
The hallmark of true quality Every detail is just right
Viamobil is particularly distinguished by its fast and easy handling. The new magnet connection system EasyConnex, for instance, means no more fiddling about: it virtually connects itself. A magnetic positioning aid automatically pulls the plug into the right position. Just like the battery pack, which always slips into the right position on the wheelchair as well thanks to the magnetic guide.
The new lithium-ion battery is exceptionally light and small. Weighing just 2.3 kg, it is easy to transport and fully charged with the automatic battery charger in just five hours, giving your Viamobil a range of up to 20 km again. A particularly long service life and a 24-month guarantee round off the reliability of the mobile energy supply.
