Product Description


SmartDrive MX2 Power Assist

Welcome to the SmartDrive MX2 by Max Mobility, the most innovative power assist on the market! The SmartDrive MX2 is incredibly light and portable, yet strong and robust. Even though the MX2 is small, it is powerful enough to help you navigate your wheelchair over almost any obstacle and terrain. It also has the strength to easily power you up steep hills and ramps.

The SmartDrive MX2 is Max Mobility's latest generation of the SmartDrive power assist. If you loved the SmartDrive MX1+, then you will love the MX2. Many of the features of the MX1+ have been fine tuned to make the MX2 better than ever. The SmartDrive MX2 is now a convenient single design with built-in rechargeable battery pack.

What sets the SmartDrive MX2 miles ahead of its competition is the intuitive controls. Operated with a sleek motion sensing wristband that communicates with the drive motor through Bluetooth technology, the MX2 knows when you want to go and when you want to stop. You turn on the wristband by pressing the center button, which in turn activates the drive motor. From there, the MX2 uses your natural motion to kick the drive motor into gear. You simply push to go, and the motion of pushing is sensed by the wristband and communicated to the drive motor. When you want to stop, just tap your hands on the rim of your wheels, and proceed to brake as normal. This will tell the motor to disengage. If you don't want the MX2 to turn on, simply turn off the wrist control and the motor is deactivated; so you can safely go off curbs, down ramps, or navigate in tight spaces.

One of the best parts about the SmartDrive MX2 is how it can save your shoulders and joints from overuse. The SmartDrive uses your natural push to go, all the while making each push go farther, so you don't need to work as hard to get to where you want to go. Once you own a SmartDrive, you will never want to leave the house without it... and you won't have to because it is sealed and water resistant. Use it in the rain and drive straight through puddles if you want!

Quick Installation and Removal

Easy installation and removal gives you the freedom to take the SmartDrive MX2 anywhere.

Rechargeable Battery

The MX2 includes a next generation lithium ion battery that lasts at least a day on a single charge. The battery has no "memory," so you can charge it every night without consequence.

Easy Mounting

Mounts to both ridged and folding wheelchairs.

Bluetooth Enabled

Operated with cordless Bluetooth technology. A sleek motion activated wristband communicates via Bluetooth to the drive motor. Push as normal to go, which in turn activates the drive motor. Tap your hands on the rims and brake to stop, which will disengage the motor.


Give it an easy push to go slow or give it a few quick pushes and the SmartDrive will increase speed to a maximum of 5.5 mph. This gives you the freedom to roll slowly next to someone who's walking, or roll faster with someone who's jogging.

Range of Motion

The Segmented wheel in the back allows 360 degrees movement of your wheelchair. The SmartDrive MX2 also has an anti-roll back feature that allows you to stop on a hill or slope and then easily get going again.

  1. An awesome product that has it's limitations 5 out of 5

    Posted by Herb on Jun 13th 2017

    While I love my SmartDrive (I have no problem with the unit itself), people do have to understand that it has limitations. While it is great for city environment, buildings, sidewalks, etc, I live in the country, with a 400 foot gravel driveway, and 6 acres of land. Obviously, this environment is NOT what the SmartDrive was meant to overcome, and I do have a large rough terrain scooter that I use at home, but it would be nice to have the benefits of both, without having to choose between them...

  3. Travel Friendly Power 5 out of 5

    Posted by Jack Marsh on Jan 24th 2017

    I've taken this thing on and off of my chair too many times to count. It's so light and easy, I couldn't imagine using a different power device. I travelled with my family this summer and LOVED using the SmartDrive. Life changer for me. Living Spinal even helped with my insurance.
    I'm telling everyone about this. Thanks guys!

  5. Another Way to Improve Independence 5 out of 5

    Posted by Casey W on Nov 9th 2015

    I wanted to buy the smart drive so I could grocery shop easier and so I could get my trash cans up and down my step driveway without help. The smart drive has allowed me the ability to do just that. It does take some getting used to but with time that comes. I love my smart drive!
