Lightning Mobility

Product Information




Power-saving and simple

An electric add-on drive is retrofitted to your existing wheelchair. The powerful electric motor takes the strain off the attendant, giving a new lease of life to your mobility. The viamobil can be combined with virtually any kind of wheelchair. Simply select the wheelchair most suited to you, depending on the right therapeutic considerations, and add viamobil to it. The viamobil is quick and easy to fit, requiring no tools or technical knowledge. A bracket simply has to be fitted on your wheelchair in advance by your medical product retailer or Alber to which viamobil can be attached with ease.

Space-saving – simply take it with you no matter where you go.

viamobil can be used anywhere. In a flash, your push and brake aid can be dismantled into a few compact individual parts and will even fit in a small trunk.
