Ottobock Avantgarde DS Manual Folding Wheelchair

The Avantgarde DS is a fourth-generation wheelchair for active use. This lightweight folding wheelchair has proven itself over many years and is very popular among active users.

The Avantgarde DS has continued to be refined over the years to optimise it for active use. It is now lighter and the weight of its components has been optimised. Thanks to its compact design and integrated leg supports, it has the lowest net weight in the Avantgarde series.

The Avantgarde DS features:

  • A small folding size of 27 centimetres, ensuring it’s easy to stow
  • Greater flexibility thanks to lightweight construction of the frame and components
  • Outstanding safety due to optimal directional stability and a drive wheel adapter with double screw connection
  • Numerous options for active wheelchair users
