    SmartDrive Power Assist Device from MAX Mobility

    I have no firsthand experience with this product yet, but it will no doubt be getting some attention in this forum during the coming months.

    The SmartDrive Power Assist can be attached to any manufacturer's rigid frame having a 1.25" OD camber tube. It weighs only 19 lbs (Drive Unit: 11 lbs./Battery: 8 lbs.).

    It is produced by MAX Mobility--the same company that developed the FlexRim.

    While it has some qualities that remind me of other power assist add ons, it appears to be a distinctly different product.

    The MSRP for the SmartDrive appears to be ~$6,900, but it is already available online through Living Spinal for $6,450..
    Will it be a "game changer"? Time will tell. In the meantime, we can speculate about it here.
