E0986 is a push-rim activated power assist option for a manual wheelchair in which sensors embedded in specially designed wheels determine the force that is exerted by the beneficiary upon the wheel. Additional propulsive and/or braking force is then provided by motors in each wheel. E0986 includes the two drive wheels/motors, batteries and battery charger. Only one unit of service should be billed per manual wheelchair.
