We’ve applied the sciences of ergonomics and kinesiology to accelerate the next evolution of manual wheelchair design...

The Z-One Vital Drive

Our patented drive system accessory seeks to improve the biomechanics of manual wheelchair mobility, increasing capacity and comfort, and reducing risk of injury for users. 

In addition to the health benefits our technology provides, manual wheelchairs in general present numerous environmental advantages over power wheelchairs by minimizing the need for costly inputs from external energy sources.
