Power-assist handcycle gets you out on the trails with family and friends participating INDEPENDENTLY! The New Smart Power-Assist Handcycle features the most power-dense Lithium-Polymer Battery Technology!
The Stricker Lipo Smart Power-Assist Handcycle allows those who would otherwise not be able to operate a handcycle, to enjoy the outdoors and even keep up with family and friends! This UNIQUE Power-Assist Electric Wheelchair Hand-bike Attachment is specifically designed for individuals with arm movement but reduced arm strength and little or no hand / finger dexterity such as C4, C5, C6, or C7 Quadriplegics. Stricker Sport Quadriplegic Handcycle without power assist also available.
Broadened Horizons is your USA and Canadian Distributor of Stricker's unique Power-Assist Handbikes.
For quadriplegics with limited arm strength, an inability to grasp standard handgrips for shift gears with fingers, squeeze breaks a standard handcycle designed for those with full hand dexterity simply does not work. Hills and even bumps or curves can be mountain-like obstacles. The unique, Stricker exclusive Push-Button Boost (pushed by chin) helps you get rolling with a 2-3 second burst of power on difficult terrain. Then dial-up as much or as little power-assist as you need by spinning a little wheel and independently shifting with your chin without removing your hands from the exceptional Quadgrips designed by an American Quadriplegic Para-Olympian. Independently conquer hills with up to a 15° slope and riding distance up to 45-75 miles (120 km)! Of course range depends on size of rider, terrain, % of assist. (Maximums measured on flat surfaces)

Peddling a handcycle requires a lot of arm strength. For quadriplegics and others with limited arm strength who are only able to peddle on flat level ground, even the smallest hill, curb, or gentle slope becomes an insurmountable mountain. The ElectroDrive Smart "levels the playing field", or in this case, "levels" the bike trail!
The Lipo Smart Power-Assist Handcycle provides adjustable power assist when needed for 12.5 miles (20km) up to a speed of 11.2 mph (18 km/h), conforming to laws of most European countries. It can be operated without power assist.
Testimony from Mark Felling, Broadened Horizons President and C4/C5 Quadriplegic:
I was able to pedal the Rio Mobility Dragonfly on perfectly level ground with significant handgrip and shifting modifications. However, with my limited arm strength, I was very frustrated that someone had to walk or jog next to me to provide a helping push at any bump or slope. Then I discovered the ElectroBike Lipo Smart! The innovative Pedaling Sensor turns on the motor at the beginning of pedaling and stops it immediately at the end of turning. A Power Assist Throttle lever or grip determines how much power the motor will add. Steep hills are no longer a problem. In flat areas, the power assist can make extended excursions of 12.5 miles (20km) possible, providing new freedom and a feeling of living. This allows people with limited strength to experience new possibilities for training, slowly reducing the amount of power assist needed and increasing independence in many of life's activities. You can even ride without power / motor assist and leave the batteries at home.
