Thread: ZX-1 Manual into Power Chair Options?

  1. #1

    Question ZX-1 Manual into Power Chair Options?

    Has anyone tried one of these Spinergy ZX-1 options to change a manual chair into a Power chair....or any other options/manufacturers that you might like? Thanks!

    I have one and I love it. I can roll on on grass and hold something in my hand while rolling around

    My wife has a ZX-1 and considers it indispensable. I have a SmartDrive which is nice but the ZX-1 is a wonderful piece of equipment. My wife upgraded to lithium batteries, recommend you get these and extend your range.

    I have a ZX-1 as well. It works very well. I don't use it a lot, just because I prefer to get as much exercise as possible in my manual chair when I venture outside.

    How does this compare to the Efix 25? http://www.alber-usa.com/

    I can see the positives. Any negatives you might have experienced (hows the reliability, and repairs, finding batteries/parts etc. do you have to go through a DME to get stuff done...sorry I havent seen this before, or heard of the company). Is it easy to install and travel with (does it fit in the trunk of a car or small suv)?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    CCC = Care Cure Community (this website). Scroll to top of the page, and look to left.

    pattherat = CCC user name of the inventor of the ZX-1

    Last time I checked there were about 13 or so folks on this site who have the ZX1. I'm one of them and it's changed my life. I'm older and started having weakness in shoulders with lots of difficulty pushing outdoors. Now use ZX1 every time I go out.
    I have a van, so I can zip into it, staying in the scooter until I transfer to driver's seat.
    Travel in a car could be an issue for you as it weighs about 70 pounds, and not practical to take apart. A trunk lift for scooters might work, then you can wheel around to enter car.
    If you can get BOTH it would be awesome. However, I have heard the power assist wheels are heavy.

    When you say BOTH, are you referring to the Zx1 and the efix....if so what would be the benefit in having both? They seem to do provide the same value, not sure if one has any different benefit?

    Thanks for the feedback. Appreciate it.
