Ottobock specialise in prosthetics and orthoses. Their folding chair was much stabler and shorter than TiLite’s folding chair. The billion‐euro holding company behind Ottobock concentrate on Ottobock and a single IT company, in stark contrast with some of the other big makers of rigid chairs (who appear to deal in the main with supplying miscellaneous equipment and surgical supplies to hospitals, or umpteen other industries). So things sound relatively promising, when it comes to Ottobock’s rigid chairs.
1.1. Scissor‐fold, transit, and/or hospital‐style chairs
- ★★‒‒‒ Ottobock [unknown model: Avantgarde DV?]: Great for its (terrible) type.
2. Would like to try
Compare with other nimble chairs for manoeuverability and tight spaces.
- Ottobock Zenit R CLT
- Ottobock Ventus
