General information about Caterwil GTS stair climbing wheelchairs
Caterwil electric stair-climbing wheelchairs are designed to improve the lives of wheelchair users, by helping them create boundless environments to participate in day-to-day city life and live to the fullest, without limitation.
The wheelchairs in the Caterwil GTS series provide mobility for people of all ages. They’re a great choice for individuals with limited mobility resulting from spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, lower limb injuries, and other musculoskeletal disorders. They can also be used by people recovering from serious medical conditions, such as a stroke, chemotherapy, or recent surgeries.
The most significant advantage of the electric stair-climbing wheelchairs is that they can be used everywhere – making dynamic urban infrastructure facilities accessible – such as cafes, restaurants, cinemas, stadiums, hospitals, gyms, and shops like 7-Eleven, Walmart, Aldi, Lidl etc.
Mobility independence is achieved by the electric drive functionality and combination of the wheel platform and track platform. The user can use the wheel platform to navigate smooth surfaces, while the track platform helps the user overcome obstacles and climb stairs with an individual height of up to 20 cm.
Caterwil GTS5 Lux special features
The main difference between the original GTS5 and its Lux version is the power seat, which includes electric footrests and an extremely comfortable orthopedic seat that can be adjusted by the user to meet their preferences.
The width of the chair is 53 cm and, along with the side supports, it helps people of any size feel safe and comfortable. The power seat’s electronic regulation allows the user to set up the seat to suit their body type. The power seat can also help provide the user the ability to change the chair’s position throughout the day to prevent skin breakdown ("bed sores") and changes in blood pressure and flow.
By clicking the buttons on the side of the wheelchair, the user can adjust the following options:
- The headrest height
- The cushion length
- The tilt angle of each footrest
- The tilt angle of the upper backrest
- The lumbar support of the backrest
- The tilt angle of the backrest
With these options, the user can independently achieve the most comfortable sitting position and, with the recline options, they can even transform the wheelchair into a bed to rest in!
Don’t limit yourself to the city – travel around the world! The height of the GTS5 Lux (without the headrest) is 116 cm, so it can be accepted for transfer in aircraft luggage compartments. The GTS5 Lux can also be transported in cars with larger baggage room, like SUVs and minivans. If the vehicle has the portable ramp, the device can also be driven in and out of the vehicle on its own.
