Weltz-EV is an electric wheelchair that allows freedom of movement in confined spaces. By positioning the larger wheels closer to the center of gravity of the seated person, Weltz-EV has a smaller turning radius and greater maneuverability than existing products. A standard office backrest cushion has also been incorporated. As a result, Weltz-EV provides optimum seating comfort and mobility.
