W5 K

High-mounted footrests for short leg length

W5 K is an active rigid wheelchair designed for users with short leg length. The frame construction allows high mounting of the footrests behind the castors.

Because the footrests are mounted high behind the castors, rolling and turning resistance is greatly minimised and wheelchair stability is increased. W5 K is available as a fully adjustable standard model with a stepless adjustable balance point; angle and height-adjustable back; and angle and height-adjustable footrests. You can continually adjust the seating position.

The detachable side panels made transfer simpler. The detachable rear wheel, folding back and detachable side panels ensure that it easy to stow in a car. W5 K is also available as a customised model with optional adjustability.
