SD Motion Drive

  • Up to 15km range
  • Max speed 4 mph
  • Lightweight unit
  • Converts into electric wheelchairs
  • Optional assistant controller


SD Motion Drive converts your manual wheelchair into an electronically propelled chair using a simple add-on power pack and electric motors mounted discreetly on the wheels. As a result, you keep the look and feel of your manual wheelchair, with the added benefit of powered motion that gives you the option to cover longer distances and easily handle slopes or more tiring journeys.

The SD Motion Drive power pack fits onto the back of your wheelchair and runs the powerful motors, giving you up to 33km of range on a single charge. Take complete control using the simple joystick, or opt for an attendant controller to allow your helper or carer to take over. The wheels are fitted with quick-release mechanisms, so they’re easy to detach, store, or pop in the car boot. In addition, you can disconnect the motors any time you want to control your movement entirely by hand, so you know you’re always getting the type of wheelchair you want without compromise.

SDMotionDrive is ideal if you:

  • have impaired strength or muscle weakness
  • find it difficult to propel yourself for as long as you’d like
  • want to combine the benefits of both power and manual wheelchairs
  • wish to move under your own steam for as long as possible, but would like the option for a carer to control the wheelchair when you get tired
  • wish to maintain independence but need a little extra power to enable you to do that


The Steering Developments SDMotionDrive is extremely reliable and customizable with a lightweight, compact design. We can adjust the speed and power levels to suit you, making your wheelchair fully personalised to your needs.
