Ottobock Avantgarde DV Manual Folding Wheelchair
The Ottobock Avantgarde has proven itself over many years. The latest generation of the folding wheelchair made of aluminium distinguishes itself thanks to its low weight and elegant design.
The Avantgarde DV wheelchair features a high level of stability and offers proven benefits. The removable and swing-away leg supports let the user drive up close to objects. The leg supports can be folded in or out for this purpose, and removing the leg supports makes self-propulsion with the feet possible.
The lightweight construction and small folding size of the Avantgarde DV ensure easy handling for both the user and anyone assisting them to push or lift the wheelchair.
Handy back bagThe back bag integrated into the back upholstery is easy for the user to reach and is equipped with a magnetic closure.
New push handlesThe new short push handles are optimised for low weight. Folding push handles are available as well.
Desk side panel with armrestsThe desk side panel offers numerous functions to position the forearms and for transfers. The armrest features multiple adjustment possibilities, while the side panel can swing away to the rear, behind the back, and is removable.
Elevating leg supportThe height-adjustable leg support effectively supports leg positioning up to the horizontal.
Integrated pocketsTwo pockets below the seat upholstery provide space for the storage of personal items, protecting them against third-party access.
Small folding sizeThe Avantgarde stands out for its extremely small folding size. Straight leg supports further reduce the folding size by a significant amount.
Anti-tippersThe anti-tipper is spring-loaded, with multiple adjustment possibilities. This ensures straightforward operation and the tip-resistance of the wheelchair is assured even with extreme settings.
Telescoping push handlesTelescoping push handles ensure that the attendant can bring the handles to an ergonomic height for pushing in a few simple steps.
