Key Features


Folding Back Support

A release mechanism integrated into the back support upholstery makes it possible to fold down the back support with just one hand. Since the back support is also firmly locked in this position, the wheelchair is easy to handle at all times when loading it in a vehicle.


Precise adjustment of the front wheels

The flexible front wheel adapter allows the front wheels to be incrementally adjusted for precise directional stability. In the CLT version, the front wheel adapter is permanently welded.


Centre of gravity adjusted to the millimetre

The adjustable drive wheel adapter permits active or passive fine-tuning of the centre of gravity and seat height adjustment. In the CLT version, the drive wheel adapter is permanently welded.


Aesthetic design

The Zenit models stand out for their clear, aesthetic design. For example, a choice is offered between premium carbon (not for CLT versions) or aluminum. The latter variant is available in all Ottobock colours, including scratch-resistant anodised colours. For those looking for even more, colour highlights are offered with the style package option.

Always focusing on design

The “completely normal craziness” of the architect’s office, his work as an expert appraiser and seminar activities is what drives Frank, an architect, to put in his best performance every day. He has been using a wheelchair since a traffic accident. When planning the designs for an accessible building project, he incorporates his own experiences in the process. “Even if we in Germany are still far behind other countries, the issue of accessibility is becoming increasingly important in our country’s public sector – and that’s how it should be.” His Zenit wheelchair for active use is always along for the ride, which Frank says “works best when you notice it least.” The handy folding mechanism provides him with maximum flexibility in his hectic daily life – while driving, maneuvering or loading.
