JWX-2 electrical assist for wheelchairs
Maneuvering a wheelchair around isn’t all that easy and requires a user to constantly strain his or her hand to get the contraption moving. Giving people with physical disabilities some respite, Yamaha Motor has unveiled the JWX-2, an electrical assist unit for wheelchairs. Using PAS technology from assisted bicycles for wheelchairs, the JWX-2 concept can be attached to just about any wheelchair. Also, this add-on can be used on slopes and on uneven surfaces like carpets. The assist can be switched on and off whenever required by simply pressing a button. Also, users can select assist levels as per their preferences.
