CAOT Product Recognition BadgeThe Panthera U3 is an active wheelchair designed to let you live life as actively as possible. It is characterized by the attention that we have put into all of its details.

Its low weight combined with the stable fixed frame and casters with a unique profile on the tread surface make this wheelchair very easy to manoeuvre.

The chassis’ seating angle, along with adjustable backrest and seat upholstery and the backrest tilt function combine to provide extremely good seating comfort.

The fabric used in the backrest upholstery has also been carefully selected for ergonomic and comfortable sitting.

The chair’s balance point can be adjusted to enable you to find a setting that offers a feeling of security. Accessories such as armrests and side guards have a unique design and you can adjust the height and fore-aft position of the armrests yourself without using tools.

The soft upper section of the side guards fold down when loaded such as when moving into or out of the wheelchair. You can place your hands on the side guards when you lift yourself up or down.
The attractively integrated anti-tip device can be folded in and out by yourself while you are seated in the wheelchair.

Panthera U3 has a tapered front and a steeper footrest angle that gives a more upright and active drivning position compared to S3.
