Enhance Life. Demand Quality.

The Juvo B6 powerchairs by Ottobock have a modular design that offers almost boundless possibilities for assembling custom-made devices for complex requirements.

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.


Available as front-wheel-drive, mid-wheel-drive or rear-wheel-drive configurable powerchairs.

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 are the basis for this intuitive drive type. The direct pivot point makes safe handling possible even with more complex input forms.

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, especially 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 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

Anti-tip rollers

These wheels ensure that the wheelchair does not tip over to the front when driving downhill and braking hard (e.g. when the control unit is turned off). The flexible anti-tip rollers fold back when they encounter the respective obstacle so that your front-wheel-drive Juvo maintains its climbing ability (e.g. on curbs).

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 automatically adjust the driving speed.

Gyroscope module

This module is a stabilisation programme that offers users effortless driving. The reliable directional stability of your wheelchair eliminates inconvenient driving corrections and 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 tested and approved according to ISO 7176-19 for transporting the user in a vehicle while sitting in a wheelchair. Numerous head supports have also been approved to remain on the wheelchair during transportation. Please consult your specialist dealer or our technical field service for further information and options.

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. For example, if the control unit registers a steering motion, 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.
