The new VAS (variably adjustable seat) frame solution with Ergo-Joint back supports angle adjustment and innovative special and environmental controls, among other features, is assured a high degree of flexibility.


Mid Wheel Drive (MWD)

The mid-wheel drive offers incomparable driving characteristics for all fields of application. The single-wheel suspension and torsion drive system form the basis for this intuitive drive type. Thanks to the direct pivot point, safe handling is possible even with more complex forms of input.

Why mid-wheel drive?

  • Intuitive movement and driving thanks to the central pivot point
  • Maximum stability against tipping
  • Optimum weight distribution
  • Low centrifugal forces
  • Ideal for indoor and outdoor use
  • Easily navigate curbs
  • User comfort
  • Postural stability
  • 100-hour test during development

Front-Wheel-Drive (FWD)

The front-wheel-drive can easily overcome obstacles such as curbs thanks to its large drive wheels. It also offers you good transfer possibilities and a high degree of manoeuvrability. The wheelchair has a relatively small turning radius with a standard 90° motion and the ability to drive, incredibly close to furniture or desks.

Why front-wheel drive?

  • Compact design
  • Minimal turning radius
  • Drives up close to objects
  • Good overview in front of the wheelchair
  • Ideal for indoor and outdoor use
  • Easily navigate curbs
  • User comfort
  • Good leg positioning
  • Postural stability
  • 100-hour test during development

Rear-Wheel-Drive (RWD)

The rear-wheel drive offers numerous variations in speed and features, and the design also permits optimum force distribution on various surfaces. Thanks to its directional stability, the Juvo with rear-wheel drive is ideal for outdoor use and is easy for most users to learn.

Why rear-wheel drive?

  • Excellent directional stability, even at higher speeds
  • Flexible centre of gravity distribution
  • Good drive wheel traction when driving up and down slopes
  • Ideal for indoor and outdoor use
  • Easily navigate curbs
  • User comfort
  • Postural stability
  • 100-hour test during development

Crash Tested

This product has been certified for the user to stay in the powerchair whilst the powerchair. This certifies that this powerchair meets the performance requirements to meet ISO 7176-19 regulations.

Vibration compensation

The proper positioning of the input module is essential if a chin or lip control is used. Effortless driving is possible only if it is aligned precisely. Our joysticks can detect vibrations caused by ground conditions such as cobblestones and adjust the driving speed automatically if desired.

Gyroscope module

This module is a stabilisation programme that offers users effortless driving. The reliable directional stability of your wheelchair eliminates not only inconvenient driving corrections but also enables precise manoeuvring on various surfaces and slopes. A gyroscope is also recommended when using digital inputs such as switch controls. It is part of the essential equipment of the front-wheel-drive Juvo in conjunction with the TEN° control unit.

Transportation in a vehicle

All Juvo drive versions are Crash Tested and approved according to ISO 7176-19 for transporting the user in a vehicle while sitting in a wheelchair.

Slower driving on curves

Our control units allow you to adjust the driving parameters individually. Safety-relevant values that prevent the wheelchair from tipping over on curves are strictly maintained. If the control unit registers a steering motion, for example, it automatically lowers the speed.

Caster swivel lock

Indeed, driving backwards is rarely necessary with a manoeuvrable wheelchair, but it can’t always be avoided, for example, when exiting a lift or on-ramps. A caster swivel lock can suppress the undesired and difficult-to-control steering motion when the power wheelchair changes driving directions. This keeps the fixed caster wheels in their straight-ahead position. The lock can be ordered as an option in a manual or power version.
