MULTIFUNCTION WHEELCHAIRS 24.09.2007
We have a responsibility toward the people whose trust we have savoured for years. This trust spans through generations. That is why we develop special care wheelchairs of highest quality and with optimal operation features.
Our products help and motivate handicapped and ill people in everyday life and in the care sector. We also take the relief of the care personnel into consideration: Adjustment of the sitting position is simple, the mechanism easy to handle. Optimal weight distribution makes the wheelchair flexible and agile.
Flexibility does not only mean getting from one spot to the other. Finding the correct adjustment to different situations in order to feel comfortable at all times is important
