Pushing has never been so easy.
The Empulse R20 powerpack by Sunrise Medical has never been easy to support the attendant pushing the wheelchair.
With a 4.5kg total transport weight and unique folding function, the R20 is ideal for storage and transport without compromising performance and durability. The R20 is also incredibly easy to use, with a push to control, two pegs mounting, and an easy-to-read display.
Storage and Transport
The R20 is the only powerpack on the market that can be folded with a wheelchair. This unique feature means you no longer have to connect and disconnect when transporting or storing the wheelchair.
The lightweight R20 and the stylish backpack allow easy handling, easy transport & also easy adaptation to nearly any wheelchair.
Despite its lightweight nature and compact appearance, there is no compromise on performance. The R20 can achieve a 9-mile range and can climb 5cm kerbs and 10-degree slopes. It will also cater for users up to 170kg in weight (190kg total, including the wheelchair), which means the R20 is a product that works for all.
The powerful motor with a lithium-ion battery provides the highest reliability. The R20 propulsion aid offers an extended warranty on the motor (3 years) and the lithium-Ion battery (2 years).
The R20 is one of the lightest power packs on the market, with a total carry weight of just 4.5kg; it is less than half the weight of other power packs currently available. This includes 3kg for the motor and a 1.4kg lithium-ion battery which can be disconnected and transported separately.
Easy to mount and dismount
The intuitive, easy to grip two peg design allows easy mounting without using any tools.
Easy to use
The easy to use control system has one push button to go and an easy to read display showing the speed and battery gauges. A height-adjustable handle allows the user to achieve the most comfortable position when operating the device.
The R20 contains 250w brushless motors that don’t wear over time versus traditional brushed versions, as well as a powerful, robust and long-lasting tyre and a lithium-ion battery, ensuring a durable and reliable product. This is reinforced with an extended 2-year warranty on the battery and 3 years on the motor.
