Ottobock launches comfortable and reliable sit-and-drive powerchair
Mobility and rehabilitation provider Ottobock has launched a new sit-and-drive powerchair that promises to be comfortable, reliable and stylish.
The Wingus has a reduced appearance and clear lines thanks to its cantilever frame construction. It gives the power wheelchair lightness and offers the user optimal seating comfort for both indoors and outdoors, Ottobock says.
The robust frame compensates for unevenness in the floor and ensures greater comfort for the client.
Designed as an entry-level model, the Wingus rear-wheel-drive powerchair offers users ease and adjustability. The back and seat depth can be individually adjusted and the arm supports can be folded back so that the individual can easily get in and out of their device.
Weighing 57kg, Ottobock states that the Wingus is comparatively light and can be easily loaded into the car. The compact dimensions also improve driving in tight spaces and through narrow doors.
Moreover, the mobility device is equipped with puncture-proof wheels and features reliable, long-term tested motors and batteries. The equipment is designed to be service- and user-friendly.
Ottobock’s product range includes prosthetic and orthotic components, wheelchairs, rehabilitation and mobility products that are available globally.
In January, the company unveiled a new battery for its popular Juvo B5 and B6 powered wheelchairs with an aim of increasing the mobility aids’ longevity.
