The Panthera U3 Light is a high-end, ultra-lightweight wheelchair for the experienced active user who can handle a ‘tippy’ wheelchair without an anti-tip device. The chair trades off some stability in exchange for lighter weight (transfer weight starts at 7.92 Ib / 3.60 kg with wheels and sideguards removed) that makes driving the chair and transferring in and out of a vehicle easier, without reducing the ergonomic features offered by the U3. Users who experience neck and shoulder problems due to excessive lifting often find a lightweight chair helps to reduce this pain.
Two configurations offer further choice: the U3 Light with normal balance, and the “U3 light L” with “tippy” balance with the rear axle moved forward an additional 7/8 inch (22 mm) and an adjustable backrest. The design is optimized for easy transfer in and out of vehicles, and features extremely good driving characteristics.
