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 to create a series of four models that leave nothing to be desired. We are talking about the B500 classic and B500 advanced.

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 and comes in conjunction with a battery drawer for easy access.

Controls

Flexible and modular thanks to our versatile control unit versions. We offer three different control units that are adapted to various user requirements: the enAble40 and enAble50.

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.

Seat options

The B500 family offers a variety of seat options such as the standard seat, contoured seat and RECARO seat.

Caster wheel suspension

The caster wheel suspension improves driving comfort.

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.
