A Bead is a green, environmentally friendly all electric wheelchair motorcycle or scooter that you drive from your wheelchair. The Bead is manufactured in Sweden, a country with strong focus on wheelchair-friendly accessibility. Handikappteknik is an innovation company of Micke Zingmark and Per Stjarnehag located in both Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden. If someone his interested, Broadened Horizons could make the arrangements to import for you.
It is very simple to use, and utilize a unique idea where the whole floor section lowers as a ramp, keeping it compact with clean lines. You simply roll in from the back and press a bottom to raise the platform from the ground. As you raise up your wheelchair wheels become wedged in front of 2 adjustable brackets to securely hold you in placeand you are ready to go. It is powered by a strong hub motor in each wheel in the back, together you have 2.5Kw. You can use the Bead as any other scooter traveling to work and back, it is road legal. It will take you to places you can´t go either in a wheelchair or an electric wheelchair. With its broad tires you can even drive it on the beach when you want to get near the water for maybe fishing or swimming. Continuing on the Green theme, the Bead is produced with environmentally friendly materials.
The Bead is equipped with a regenerative breaking system to extend battery life and range. That means when you let go of the throttle the Bead brakes by itself and all that energy is recharging your batteries! We can adapt the Bead to fit your needs, we will be able to mount a neck and backrest for customers with quadriplegic injuries and we have plans for power steering and joystick for those who needs it. The Bead will take you up to 50 km on standard Sealed Lead-Acid batteries and with the optimal Lithium Ion batteries the bead can travel up to 120 km per charge!
