The Rio Firefly is an electric power add on that attaches to the front frame of most rigid frame wheelchairs and certain folding wheelchairs providing they are not fitted with swing away leg rests.
If your wheelchair has swing away leg rests then we would recomend the Triride
The Firefly battery lasts for over 3000 charge cycles, compared to only 500 cycles for a heavier lead-acid battery.
The Firefly is easy to control and manoeuvre with power brakes, reverse buttons and thumb throttles all within easy reach.
It can be driven both forward and in reverse giving the user maximum control in a variety of situations.
The standard pack includes both a set of 1.25 inch round clamps and a selection of shim sizes to reduce the clamp down to fit other frame sizes. If your chair has an oval frame like a Helium for example then you need to choose oval brackets. Extra brackets are available for a second chair if required.

Clips on and off your wheelchair easily.
Can be used up hills and over grass.
Loads easily into the car.
Separate forward and reverse thump throttles.
