In restricted areas continuously height-adjustable push handles. Push handles can be entirely moved down behind the backrest (if tube is not cranked). Wheelchair users are therefore not limited in their moving space by the push handles, and the push handles are not in the way during loading.

Custom handle positions, handle distances and, distance of push handles to wheelchair (by twisting the handles and bending the tubes, e.g. by means of handle offset). Custom-made models upon request.

Low stiffness due to the increased jut-out length.

Push bar and outdoor attachment
Push handle and wheel attachment (Buddy)
Gallery
No extra weight on wheelchair due to possible detachment. Push bar and wheel attachment can be easily and quickly detached using quick clamp.

Wheel attachment:
  • Wheelchair becomes an all-terrain vehicle managing cobblestones, gravel and forest trails.
  • With a wheel attachment the wheelchair travels slightly tilted, the caster wheels are 2 to 4 cm above the ground.
  • As a result, the track becomes wider (based on the camber), and the smooth run is slightly reduced, which is, however, compensated by the larger wheel of the wheel attachment.

Push handle:
  • Makes the wheelchair easily manoeuvrable for the accompanying person, who can thus provide better support.
 
Limitations
  • Only possible for BUDDY and SPEEDY 4teen.
  • Enormous increase in total length, thus only suitable for outdoor use.
Height-adjustable
No.
Removable
Yes, without tools.
Weight

Gallery
Centrally positioned push handle. The central position of the push handle does not limit the wheelchair user's freedom of movement. The person pushing has one hand free so that they can carry shopping or control siblings.

The angle of the push handle can be adjusted using a serrated joint. This means the angle of the push handle can be adjusted in 10 steps or it can be completely folded away with one hand. By changing the angle, you can also adjust the desired distance of the push handle from the wheelchair (by angling the handle section).

It's integrated in the back cross bar.
