Benoit Systemes Light Drive Mini 2.1

The Light Drive Mini 2.1 is a lightweight powered add-on designed to be fitted to a paediatric manual wheelchair. It attaches within seconds, and transforms your child's wheelchair into a fully powered wheelchair, allowing them to make longer journeys where self-propelling or pushing are not an option.

Product Description

The Mini fits to smaller wheelchairs, with seat widths from 32 cm upwards, and can fit to a wide range of wheelchairs. This ensures it lasts as your child grows, and can be moved across to a new wheelchair should they outgrow their original one.

As with the adult Light Drive, the Mini features motors that drive your rear wheels, and is controlled by the wheelchair occupant via a joystick. It can drive at speeds of up to 6.2 mph, and has a long range of 10 miles courtesy of its ultra-light lithium battery. It can drive over grass and gravel, as well as up hills - the kind of terrain that is normally a struggle to overcome in a manual wheelchair.

The Light Drive Mini fits and removes to your child's wheelchair quickly and easily, taking just seconds to do once familiar with it. It only requires a small, discreet amount of bracketry to be left attached to the wheelchair, and doesn't impede regular manual use of the wheelchair. When travelling, the Light Drive Mini is compact and light, and is also approved for air travel.

A choice of 15 bright colours lets you personalise your child's Light Drive, so that it stands out and matches their wheelchair.

Our Verdict

There are few powered add-ons for wheelchairs that are designed to work with children's wheelchairs. The Light Drive Mini 2.1 is great at allowing your child to enjoy longer journeys out and about with the family or friends, particularly on the kind of ground that pushing or self-propelling is a struggle. What's more, it can be quickly removed or disengaged, ensuring you don't compromise your child's development of their self-propelling wheelchair skills.
