//  BUDDY

Buddy
Thanks to its special design, the width of the BUDDY children's and young people's wheelchair can be adjusted so it grows with its user, making it a reliable companion for many years. Equipped with the simple seat height adjustment in 1 cm steps and the continuous adjustment of the centre of gravity, this wheelchair adjusts to the growing requirements of its user.

Thanks to its robust construction and low weight, the BUDDY makes an ideal companion for all sorts of adventures. This way children can discover the world on their own and there is nothing to prevent them from taking part in boisterous children's games. The BUDDY is available with extensive accessories and can thus be upgraded to suit any everyday life situation. Combined with various adaptations such as the FREEWAY steering attachment or the SPIKE adaptive bike, new action areas can be explored.



The seat width is adaptable
  • By adjustment of the cross tubes the seat width grows in 1 cm increments from 18 to 38 cm.
  • The increase by 4 cm is possible without exchanging any frame parts.
  • For a further extension in width a special adapter set is available.
