E-Pilot Electric Wheelchair Drive System

A perfect mix of sporty-elegant design and perfect ergonomics: the e-pilot from Alber convinces. It turns your wheelchair into a sporty vehicle in seconds – the dynamic combination for everyday use.


Drive to the centre, visit friends or simply enjoy the day in the nature. No problem with the e-pilot: just dock it to the manual wheelchair, switch it on and turn the throttle. Here we go. Even distances of up to 50 km are no problem thanks to the large Li-Ion battery pack. When you reach your destination, undock the e-pilot and travel with your manual wheelchair as usual – full flexibility.

Overcome borders, enjoy new freedom. The e-pilot offers a new kind of mobility. Thanks to the large front wheel, you can easily expand the possibilities of the manual wheelchair. A dirt road or a bad underground is no problem. Even a curb can easily be overcome.

Clever functions on the go: Thanks to the optional Mobility Plus Package, the e-pilot can be extended by useful functions, such as a wheelchair-accessible navigation function or the speed extension to 20 km/h. This makes the trip really fun and you will reach your goal faster.
