The U3 light is a wheelchair designed for the experienced active user who can handle a “tippy” wheelchair without anti-tip device.
After long-terme sitting in a wheelchair many people develop problems with neck and shoulder pain. To help them reduce and/or prevent further problems we have designed the U3 light to make lifting and driving the chair as easy as it can possibly be without, of course, reducing the ergonomic features from the U3.
The design is optimized for easy handling in and out of cars and extremely good driving characteristics. The very clean and minimalistic design gives the experienced active-user a big opportunity for improvements in his or her daily life.
In its standard configuration, the U3 light has a carbon fibre rear axle, Spinergy X rear wheels, X footrest in aluminum and X castor wheels and a seat bag with integrated magnet.
The U3 light exists in two different set-ups. “U3 light” with normal balance, and “U3 light L” with a more “tippy” balance.
On the “U3 light L” the rear axle has been moved forward an additional 22 mm.
It’s possible to adjust the position of the backrest by +/- 10mm, forward or backward, to calibrate the balance. Standard colour is pearl white or anodic black.
