Full power handcycle
The Rio Firefly wheelchair attachment is an electric scooter attachment that transforms a manual wheelchair into a powered trike.
Compatible with most manual wheelchairs
It is compatible with most manual wheelchairs but does require assembly and clamps to be attached to the wheelchair frame for docking. This process can take up to 20-minutes, but once completed, hooking the Rio Firefly wheelchair attachment onto your chair is quick and easy.

Once in place, your caster wheels will be lifted up off the ground and you will be travel on the larger front wheel. This allows you to pass over rough or slippery ground without effort and to tackle inclines that you would certainly think twice about if pushing manually.
- Attaches to your wheelchair in seconds
- Separate forward and reverse thumb throttles
- Frame comes apart without tools for transport and storage
Removable lightweight lithium battery
This attachment lets you get to more places with less effort, so reducing fatigue and shoulder strain, and increasing independence. The Rio Firefly wheelchair attachment has a five-speed 350W motor located in the hub of the wheel, which is controlled by separate forward and reverse throttles.
It has a maximum speed of twelve miles per hour and with one charge of the lithium-ion battery, you can travel a maximum distance of 15 miles. It takes about four hours to fully charge the battery which is lightweight and removable, and the charger comes included.
Electric motor with disc and V-brake
The frame is made from aluminium, and the Rio Firefly wheelchair attachment has a 140-mm disc brake and a Promax V-brake. It has a 12.5-inch wheel with a tire that is 2.25-inches wide to provide good grip on slippery surfaces such as wet grass or leaves.
The total weight of the Rio Firefly wheelchair attachment is just 10.9-kg with the battery included, and it can be used by a person weighing up to 115-kg.
It is a convenient, light-weight option which may not have such a slick look as others, and the docking system may not be as good, but it does have a more accessible price tag.
