MagicDrive EC - Permobil

MagicDrive EC
Problems are there to be solved

That is the idea behind our alternative control system MagicDrive EC (Environmental Control). Whatever your handicap the wheelchair can be controlled and used in an easy and active way. Thanks to the flexibility of the system most problems can be solved. A nod of the head or a minimal movement of a finger can be enough. MagicDrive EC includes a variety of functions that can be connected to a unit. In practice this means that the electronics can be adapted to the needs of the user. Every chair is personalised. The key is to use advanced technology to enable what used to be impossible. For many people with handicaps, MagicDrive EC makes the difference between doing something yourself or having to ask for help.

Control over your environment

The MagicDrive EC can be used not just to control your wheelchair, but also to easily operate your communications and environmental equipment, such as your telephone, Intercom, TV, radio, roller blinds or lighting. The flexibility of the system means that a wide variety of controls can be applied as required. A nod of the head or a minimal movement of a finger or chin can be enough.

An easy option

Using the MagicDrive EC you can control your environment with the same joystick or input equipment. You can control your environment via infrared signals, radio frequency or direct cable connections. With the MagicDrive EC Easy Mobile function you can make and receive calls, as well as send and receive text messages. Have a chat with the aid of SMS and get audio feedback telling you where you are in the menu. The MagicDrive EC is easy to use and adapt to your own requirements. You choose!
