Discovery Wheelbase Brochure
Kimba Kid's Buggy
Dino Wheelbase Brochure
The Dino wheelbase is a lightweight, easy to push or self-propelling aluminium chassis for use with custom seating solutions.
The Discovery is a stable and adaptive wheelbase. Even under high weight bearing load, you can easily handle the Discovery because the rotation point of the seat tilt has been placed very close to the front. For this reason, the seating, system can be easily tilted by using the gas compression springs.
SHAPE Carved Foam
SHAPE Carved Foam seat can be made in a number of foam densities, depending on your needs. It is also possible to use different foams in one seating system to customise the contours to your requirements.
SHAPE Moulded Seating
Shape Moulded Seating is appropriate for users that require a high level of support from their seating systems. It has been designed as a streamline seat with a thinner profile that can be trimmed down to suit the needs of the user or fit in a variety of wheelbases.
Matrix seating is often used for individuals that suffer from the effects of over heating or require their seating to adjust over time.
Ottobock have partnered with WheelAir to provide a temperature and relative humidity control device which uses the power of airflow ventilation to help manage symptoms created by heat and moisture.
Their airflow system is integrated within the seat at the outset, creating a silent and user friendly interface that is easily managed.
