The B500 family with rear and front-wheel drive
Reliable, versatile and safe - Made in Germany
With a love for details: the modular B500 series
Wheelchair users know that it is often the small details which provide major everyday relief. That makes it all the more important to tailor the functions of your everyday companion precisely to your requirements. In order to meet this requirement even better in the future, we have pursued the further development of the successful B500 power wheelchair
Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, they set themselves apart with driving safety, ease of maintenance and comfortable control options. Individual models in the B500 family are also available with front-wheel drive.
Drive wheel suspension
The drive wheel suspension improves driving comfort.
Caster wheel suspension
The caster wheel suspension improves driving comfort.
Self-contacting LED front lighting
The LED front lighting is self-contacting on all models, so there are no bothersome cables. This makes the side panels quick to remove and simplifies sideways transfers.
B500 front-wheel drive
The front-wheel drive allows obstacles to be mastered with ease and results in safe and dynamic driving characteristics of the B500 S models. More space for the feet is another advantage.
Flexible and modular thanks to our versatile control unit versions. We offer three different control units that are adapted to various user requirements: the VR2, enAble40 and enAble50.
The B500 family offers a variety of seat options such as the standard seat, contoured seat and RECARO seat.
