Firefly Power Drive for Wheelchairs

Convert your manual chair into a beast! The Rio Mobility Firefly is a steerable power device that attaches to the front of your wheelchair. Firefly works on fixed front-end wheelchairs only, no swingaway footrest. It uses a small high-torque electric motor powered by a Lithium Ion battery and has a range of up to 15 miles with speeds up to 12mph.

The Firefly gives users the ability to go anywhere they want including over rough terrains and up steep gradients.

Firefly is a Quality of Life Purchase:
We know what you're thinking: how could it be so expensive? It is expensive, but all the components used are top quality and create a product you can depend on. It's an awesome product! It won't break down in the middle of a cruise. You'll have the freedom to go places and do things that were once taboo. The Lithium battery, electronic controller, aircraft strength T6061 aluminum frame, disc brake and high torque brushless motor all add up to dollars. Be assured, the Firefly is an investment, but it will give years of trouble-free mobility enjoyment in return.

Full Power for your Wheelchair:
The Firefly is not a simple assist device. It is a front wheel drive system that completely eliminates propelling by hand. The powered drive system is easy to control and maneuver. Firefly's precise steering allows you to pull up close to tables, car trunks, and counter tops.

Who can use Firefly:
Of course we know you are competent and capable, but is your chair? You cannot attach this device to a chair with swingaway/detachable footrest. When the Firefly is attached for traveling it will lift the front of the chair up and the casters off the ground. Swingaways will not work. For use on Rigid or Folding Chairs with fixed front legs.

Attaching the Firefly:
The Firefly Electric Handcycle easily snaps on/off the front of your wheelchair. Although attaching the hardware to your wheelchair only takes a few moments, plan on spending a little time fine-tuning the placement of the receiver tubes on your chair's front rigging. The receiver's positioning is important to getting just the right amount of lift on the front casters and the correct traction for the drive wheel. Adjust the handcycle so that the Front Wheel is as close as possible to the footrest without interference while driving straight or turning. If possible, you may also want to move the rear axles further back.

Disc Brakes are Amazing:
Hand brake levers are mounted on both handlebars. The brake levers operate disc brakes mounted on the front drive-wheel and brakes lock for parking. Brakes are precise and easy to use for controlled stops.

Enjoy the Ride:
The Firefly has a set of gauges that display speedometer, odometer, and battery level. You'll always know when to head to the battery charger or drop-in your spare. Don't worry about getting stuck out in the boonies somewhere, enjoy the ride.
