Empulse F35 Handbike

This exciting addition to our range is Sunrise Medical's smallest and lightest powered handbike. The new Empulse F35 is extremely portable, easy to handle and attaches to most wheelchairs. What's more it comes at a very affordable price. With a range of up to 9.3 miles, let the F35 take the strain and you'll breeze through your daily commute and pursue outdoor adventures or travel plans with ease and confidence.

Product Description


The F35 is compatible with a wide range of fixed and folding wheelchairs. Accommodating frame widths from 260 to 480 mm, it provides choice and versatility. Unlike some handbikes, it also attaches seamlessly to either fixed or swing-away front frames, with mounting heights ranging from 249 to 370 mm.

Power and Range

Equipped with a 250W brushless motor and a Lithium-Ion 36V 4Ah lithium-ion battery, the F35 can reach speeds up to 9.3 mph and take on slopes up to 6 degrees. The F35 is a real asset in a multitude of environments and helps alleviate fatigue and strain on the user's arms and shoulders. With a range of up to 9.3 miles on a single charge and its tight turning circle, the F35 is ideal for use in educational settings, shopping and urban area use.

Lightweight and Portable

The compact design allows for easy transportation and storage, making it incredibly convenient for travel. At 61 cm in length, 58.4 cm wide, and weighing just 9 kg with the battery and 7.5 kg without, the F35 is unmatched for its slimline aesthetic and ultralightweight design and features a flip-up design for easy transport and storage.


The F35 exudes a cool, contemporary vibe. Resembling an e-scooter, the discreet minimalistic styling of the F35 has a sleek, streamlined silhouette with little by way of external wiring. The smart matte black casing completes the look and will complement the appearance of any wheelchair.

Intuitive Controls

The handbike includes a user-friendly control panel with an LCD display, cruise control, and adjustable speed settings for a personalized experience.

Our Verdict

Overall, the Empulse F35 strikes the perfect balance between size and practicality, which can significantly enhance mobility and independence for manual wheelchair users. It's an exciting addition to our range. But this ultra-portable handbike is much more than a sleek and stylish addition to your wheelchair. Considering its compatibility, ultra-lightweight design, and intuitive controls, the F35 is a compelling choice for quick and effortless powered mobility.

While compatible with most wheelchair brands, the Empulse F35 is an ideal partner for Quickie chairs. When purchased alongside a sturdy model like the Quickie Life R, the combined cost is lower than most other handbikes alone. This pairing offers exceptional value by delivering a robust mobility solution at a competitive price.

For context take a look at the Empulse F55, which offers a wider range but is a little heavier. Or the Rehasense Eco Assist Handbike, which is priced similarly to the F35 and is a very cost-effective lightweight solution for wheelchair users looking for an entry-level power add-on to increase their independence.
