Wheelchairs for stairs Caterwil
The Caterwil GTS is a wheelchair with a wheeled and tracked platform for climbing stairs. The wheelchair itself is used for moving on a smooth surface. The caterpillar platform is needed to cross the stairs, ramps and other obstacles. A wheeled platform is used to move on a flat surface, and a tracked platform is used to overcome stairs, curbs and other obstacles. Due to this distribution, high cross-country ability, smoothness and energy saving are achieved. At the same time, the dimensions of the step-walker do not exceed the dimensions of a conventional drive carriage!
In the wheel mode for a more comfortable fit, the chair can be deflected back and forth using the buttons on the remote control. In caterpillar mode, a stepped wheelchair activates a gyroscopic system that keeps the seat level for safety while overcoming obstacles. In caterpillar mode, the seat adjustment buttons on the remote control are not active.
