The Discovery is a particularly stable and versatile chassis for seating shells and other orthopaedic seating systems. It is suitable both for indoor and outdoor use and distinguishes itself by its high load capacity of up to 110 kilograms. The pivot point, which is located far forward, allows easy handling of heavy seating systems and patients. The chassis can also be navigated close to tables in the tilted position.

Room for Individual Foot Rests

Due to the many adjustment options, Discovery can be adapted to various requirements and thus ensures optimal positioning at all times. For example, the abducted front frame in the steering wheel area offers room for individual foot rests and foot rest assemblies. In addition, Discovery enables comfortable seat tilting of up to 35 degrees using a gas pressure spring, so that children can be assisted in the sitting position depending on their individual requirements. Furthermore, the backrest angle can be adjusted from 90 to 130 degrees using a ratchet system. To adjust the seat depth, the complete backrest construction can be moved along the seat bars.

A number of interchangeable adapters are available to install seating systems and seating shells; these are installed on the seat bars in the best respective position in relation to the seat edge and backrest. In addition, Discovery includes belt grommets for transportation in vehicles equipped for disabled persons as standard equipment.  Multiple accessories such as armrests, anti-tipper, and a tip-assist complete the product range.

Suitable for all indications that require a seating shell, e.g.
infantile cerebral palsy, spine and limb deformities, paralysis of the lower extremities connected to scoliosis, etc.
