Discovery

Ottobock

The Discovery is an Ottobock wheelbase that has been proven to be extremely stable, adaptive, and easily manoeuvrable.

Discovery has been proven to be open to different seating systems: the entire back can be adjusted to the seating shells; the angle of the back rest can be changed with a ratchet mechanism. Various interface adapters and footrest designs round off this flexible concept.

Features:

  • Seat Tilt from 0° to 35° operated by a gas compression spring.
  • Individual push handles.
  • Back inclination adjustable from 90° to 120°.
  • Knee lever wheel lock.
  • Transport mounting loop.

Customer Questions
What are your delivery lead times?
It depends on the product you order. A simple order such as RMS accessories are held in stock and can be dispatched quite quickly, usually within 5 working days - if it is a bespoke item such as a seating system, or items ordered from external suppliers, this may take between 2 and 12 weeks. We will contact you once your order is placed to give you a more accurate lead time.
What is a prescriptive item?
This is an item that is made unique to each users needs. Although all our products - including prescriptive ones - can be purchased on the website, we highly recommend that those marked as prescriptive items (in our Product Builder) have an assessment carried out by one of our product specialists. We cannot accept any returns for items ordered in the wrong size or that are incompatible with the end user.
Can I return an item?
Unfortunately not. A lot of our products are made to measure meaning they are unique to each person and therefore can’t be returned. If you have a product you believe can be returned we may accept it if it is unopened and unused - call 01795 477280 to talk to us.
Can I change an order I’ve already placed?
You can, but it may result in extra charges and delays. Once we have started manufacturing a product it becomes hard to change that process, especially if some components need to be replaced. We ask that everyone checks their order thoroughly before purchase.
Am I VAT Exempt?
If you are registered disabled - or are the carer, parent or guardian of someone who is registered disabled you will be exempt from paying VAT. If you are a registered charity with a UK charity registration number you will also not have to pay VAT. There is a simple form to fill out at checkout to apply this discount.
How do I apply for a trade account?
You can apply for a trade account by filling out this form on the website. You can also look at our interactive map on our contact us page and get in contact with your local Product Specialist to see if you would be eligible for a trade account.

The Discovery is a stable and adaptive wheelbase. Even under a hight weight bearing load, you can easily handle the Discovery due to where the rotation point of the seat tilt has been placed. For this reason, the seating system can be easily tilted by using the gas compression springs.

 

Benefits:

NARROW FRAME:

  • Low overall width because of the selection of smaller rear wheels (compared to the conventional 24" wheels). The seat unit can be set up above the mobility base.

 

PRESSURE RELIEF:

  • Relieving position with seat tilt up to 350° (by gas compression spring) with back inclination up to 120°.
