Power wheelchair – Juvo
Front-wheel drive (FWD)
The Juvo can easily overcome obstacles such as curbs thanks to its large drive wheels. It also offers you good transfer possibilities and a high degree of manoeuvrability. The wheelchair has a relatively small turning radius with a usual 90° motion and the ability to drive especially close to objects such as furniture or desks.
Mid-wheel drive (MWD)
Incomparable driving characteristics for all fields of application. The single-wheel suspension and torsion drive system form the basis for this intuitive drive type. Thanks to the direct pivot point, safe handling is possible even with more complex forms of input.
Rear-wheel drive (RWD)
We have continually developed the classic drive system for our Ottobock power wheelchairs: the result is the best traction and enhanced safety, even at higher speeds. Furthermore, the rear-wheel drive offers numerous variations when it comes to speed and features, and the design also permits optimum force distribution on various surfaces. Thanks to its directional stability, the Juvo with rear-wheel drive is ideally suited for outdoor use and is easy for most users to learn.
The TEN° handheld control device constitutes a small ergonomic revolution for you as a user. Why? One example is the soft hand pad, which prevents premature fatigue. The innovative rotary control with a 10-degree rotation angle makes it easy to access the speed regulation. The high-resolution 3.5 inch colour display gives you a good overview of your user interface.
The tried-and-tested VR2 is our basic control device, which can be programmed to suit your personal needs. The control panel is divided into a keypad, two LED displays and a joystick. A charging receptacle is located on the underside.
Alternative types of input can be used when standard joysticks are not the best option. In many cases, the mini joystick is mounted on an electronic swivel arm for control with the chin or lips. We would be happy to provide you with additional input options for controlling your wheelchair. These can of course be used to control the seat functions as well as your communication devices and your home environment. More
Safety and transportation
These wheels ensure that the wheelchair does not tip over to the front when driving downhill and braking hard (e.g. when the control device is turned off). The flexible anti-tipper rollers fold back when they come into contact with the respective obstacle so that your front-wheel drive Juvo maintains its climbing ability (e.g. on curbs).
The proper positioning of the input module is particularly important if a chin or lip control is used. Effortless driving is possible only if it is aligned precisely. Our joysticks can detect vibrations caused by ground conditions such as cobblestones and adjust the driving speed automatically if desired.
This module is a stabilisation programme that offers users effortless driving. The reliable directional stability of your wheelchair not only eliminates inconvenient driving corrections, but also enables precise manoeuvring on various surfaces and slopes. A gyroscope is also recommended when using digital inputs such as switch controls. It is part of the basic equipment of the front-wheel drive Juvo in conjunction with the TEN° control device.
Quick Mobile service
For consistent driving characteristics and a long service life, we recommend annual maintenance of the Juvo by a service specialist. In the unlikely case that the technician is unable to make the Juvo operational again right away, you will not have to do without your usual seat and its customised add-on components during the repair time. The chassis and seat can be easily separated, making it simple to replace the drive unit. The battery of the Juvo B5 / B6 can also be replaced quickly and easily by flipping the seat over.
Transportation in a vehicle
All Juvo drive versions are tested and approved according to ISO 7176-19 for transporting the user in a vehicle while sitting in the wheelchair. Numerous head supports have now also been approved to remain on the wheelchair during transportation. For further information and options, please consult your specialist dealer or our technical field service.
The sophisticated modular design of the Juvo helps us reach many users with very specific requirements. However, if there’s anything else you need due to your special requirements, please speak to your specialist dealer or the person in charge of your fitting. Our goal is to meet your individual wishes, making your everyday life easier on your journey to greater independence.
