Stable and adaptive wheelbase for customised seating solutions.

The Ottobock Discovery is a stable and adaptive wheelbase. Even with a high weight-bearing load, you can easily manoeuvre the Ottobock Discovery Wheelbase due to the rotation point of the seat tilt being placed close to the front of the base. For this reason, the seating system can be easily tilted using the gas compression springs.

The Ottobock Discovery Wheelbase has been proven to be open to different seating systems: the entire back can be adjusted to the seating shells, and the angle of the backrest can be changed. Various interface adapters and footrest designs round off this flexible concept.


Ottobock Discovery Customised Seating Wheelbase

Renowned proven tilting wheelchair for custom seating systems

The entire back can be adjusted to the seating shells and the angle of the backrest can be changed with a ratchet mechanism. Various interface adapters and footrest designs round off this flexible concept.

Narrow width for better access

Low overall width, enhanced by the option to choose smaller rear wheels (compared to conventional 24” wheels),

Designed for your Comfort

The Discovery is not just a wheelbase. With a choice of optional deep contoured seat cushions and a newly designed back, padded armrest covers, headrest and elevating legrest you can design your very own comfort wheelbase.

Ensuring that the Discovery works for everyone.

35° seat tilt Pressure relief

Backrest recline
