Promising to raise performance and comfort standards to “a new level”, a new super lightweight active folding wheelchair is now available in the UK and received positive feedback at the UK’s flagship disability event, Naidex 2022.

Recare, a rehabilitation and healthcare equipment specialist for disabled adults and children, introduced the Ottobock Zenit wheelchair range to the UK market at this year’s Naidex.

The stylish Zenit is able to offer the propulsion efficiency of a rigid chair while providing the flexibility of folding. Its patented ‘Easy-go’ system means in one quick movement the Zenit can be folded and reduced in size for transit in a car or compact storage.

Both the aluminium and carbon fibre models deliver maximum stability and efficiency with numerous adjustment options to suit individual preferences.

With a user’s centre of gravity finely tuned, movement and manoeuvrability are unsurpassed, according to Recare, ensuring hassle-free enablement and inclusion for all active lifestyles.

Alongside the new Zenit, Recare demonstrated a range of additional Ottobock products, including the Avant Garde 4 wheelchair and Juvo B5 and Wingus powerchairs. For paediatric clients, the Kimba 2.0 Buggy and Bravl Racer were equally as popular with children and parents.

In addition to award-winning products, Recare and Ottobock specialists demonstrated several of their clinical services and the technology behind bespoke seating solutions.

To celebrate the launch of the new Zenit in the UK, Ottobock Ambassador Chris Rattenbury, a para sportsman and ex-British para powerlifting champion, was presented with his new carbon fibre Zenit at the show.

Richard Holland-Oakes, Recare Co-Founder, concluded: “It was fantastic to feel the buzz coming back to Naidex. Our team found the show rewarding on many levels and working alongside Ottobock once again proved advantageous for visitors seeking the very best in wheelchair design.”
