The all-round wheelchair for active use
The demands placed on a wheelchair are as variable as the users themselves.
While compact, lightweight construction is important for one person, the design or color take priority for another. Others focus on comfort and handling. But there is one thing they all have in common: The desire for the greatest possible mobility and independence in everyday life. Autonomous and free to pursue your own interests – always and everywhere.
With the Ventus, we have created a wheelchair that fulfils all these wishes. As a fully configurable rigid-frame wheelchair for active use with a custom-made frame and a comprehensive selection of options that make it versatile in application, it is a true all-rounder and a reliable companion in your everyday life.

Open Frame Design
Thanks to the open frame design that does not require a support bar, you can easily load the Ventus into your vehicle. With the rear wheels removed, you can even put your wheelchair on the passenger seat.
The side panel with clothing protector lip protects your clothing against dirt.
Continuously adjustable caster head
The chassis of the Ventus allows you to fine-tune the settings, ensuring optimum directional stability and reliably preventing the feared caster wobbling when going downhill.
Natural Fit push rings
These special push rings with a vertically oval gripping contour provide you with a larger contact surface for driving and braking. They are also easier on your hands.
Offset front frame
The offset version of the front frame ensures good leg positioning and guidance in addition to making the wheelchair narrower at the front.
Axle retainer in various lengths
The axle retainer, which is available in different lengths, not only regulates the seat angle but can also be adjusted continuously relative to the frame in order to shift the tipping point of the wheelchair.
Benefits at a glance
Always on the go
Always out and about, doing what you want – without thinking about the wheelchair.
Just get in
Thanks to its compact transport size, you can easily load the Ventus yourself – and not only into a van or staton wagon.
Enjoy life, reach the goals you set for yourself and take part in recreational activities: The Ventus expands your personal mobility radius.
No, you don't have to participate in every sport with your Ventus – but it takes you to where the action is.
eSupport supports you wherever you go
As much support as needed – as much independence as possible. Extended range of activity thanks to individual auxiliary drive for manual wheelchairs.
Positioning in the wheelchair
Everyone has individual requirements for support and seating comfort. The adaptable back upholstery and angle adjustment offer you a variety of possibilities for your optimum positioning.
Fine-tuning the driving characteristics
Do the turning radius, tipping point and seat angle top your wish list when it comes to your wheelchair settings? The Ventus has a fast and practical adjustment system for adapting it precisely to your needs.
Reliability is measurable
Our quality claim goes beyond the usual test standards. That is why the Ventus had to face the toughest test conditions, and it came out a winner.
More individuality on demand
If you desire even more individuality, we offer custom fabrication with countless possibilities to adapt your Ventus entirely in accordance with your wishes.
Scissor and sport wheel locks
The horizontal scissor or sport wheel lock is best suited for users with good hand functionality, and does not get in the way during sideways transfers.
