The folding NANO S also scores when it comes to compactness. The innovative folding system ensures superb torsional stiffness and ride performance. In addition to the very compact frame length, the legrests and wheels can be removed in a few simple steps, for example for loading. As an option, the NANO S can be fitted with a hinged back.
NANO S ist the world's first and only folding wheelchair with an open frame concept (mono-tube) with swiveling and removable leg supports. Another highlight is the innovative folding kinematics thanks to the flat cross braces in double design. The advantages are, on the one hand, very high torsional rigidity, similar to that of a rigid-frame wheelchair.
On the other hand, the two drive wheels are absolutely parallel to each other when folded, thus guaranteeing a very safe standing wheelchair. It has an empty weight capacity of 10 kilograms and a maximum user weight of 130 kilograms. A total of 21 frame colors can be selected at no extra charge. The NANO S is especially suitable for users who need to be able to walk and for all neurological care. It has a high maneuverability in narrow spaces. Efficient movement training of the legs is possible and transfer in and out of the wheelchair is easy. As with the other models in the NANO family, great importance was attached to making the NANO S a good looker. Modern, clear design unites with an individually selectable frame colour to create a winning personality. Despite its light ready-to-ride weight starting at 10 kg, the NANO S is particularly durable and stable due to the double cross brace. The transport weight starts at 7 kg. Compatibility with the NANO modular system enables quick parts availability and flexible equipment.
The NANO S is composed of various individual parts. The detachable side panel with height-adjustable armrest including one-hand operation offers a swing-up function and ensures a very narrow overall width. The new push handles, which follow the design of the NANO family, offer optimal handling in everyday use. A very good addition for the seating system is the Netti Contour cushion.
