Product Information

  • Ottobock Avantgarde DS: the travel companion

    Besides its low weight, the DS model with fixed leg support stands out for its extremely small folding size of 27 cm. At the same time, it offers a high level of stability for active users. Thanks to its compact design and the integrated leg support the Avantgarde DS features the lowest net weight within the Avantgarde series.

    Ottobock Avantgarde DV: the variable version

    The new Ottobock Avantgarde 4 DV impresses with its light weight, but this does not mean it‘s lost any of its proven advantages. Users like the new Avantgarde 4 DVs height-adjustable armrest, but also the option of driving up close to objects such as furniture, the barbeque or bath. The leg supports can be folded in for this purpose. It is also suitable for stroke patients when the leg supports are removed, which is done with a new type of lever.

    For users who find that lightweight still isn‘t light enough, the additional option of a CLT package offers an ultralight version of the Ottobock Avantgarde 4 wheelchair for active use. More weight is saved here thanks to the single CLT cross brace, permanently welded components like the rear wheel adapter and push handles, lighter seat and back upholstery as well as carbon side panels and Infinity Ultralight rims.
