Light Drive Power Assist


The Lite Drive power assist is an electric motor that instantly transforms your manual wheelchair into an ultra-lightweight, high-performance electric wheelchair!


The Light Drive unit is controlled by a joystick while maintaining the manoeuvrability of the chair; it stops when the joystick is released and has a 360-degree range of motion, including full reverse.

By releasing the clutch, you can freewheel, giving you the option of employing the power assist or driving manually.

The Lite Drive prioritises safety by including a downhill brake system that automatically limits your descent.

Benoit System’s Light Drive is a strong and dependable power add-on for most manual wheelchairs.
