DESINO rethought the wheelchair concept entirely. The results are innovative adaptive wheelchairs, which provide dynamic seating and optional manual dual-drive that opens up completely new horizons.
The new seating concept.
DESINO’s patented, dynamic seat activates your spine and relieves your back. After analysing the movement pattern of the human body while walking, we have adapted our seating system accordingly to accomodate in the best possible way.
The outcome: A smoothly oscillating, natural sequence of movements, which mobilizes the spine, the muscles and the lymphatic system equaly. The movement of the dynamic seat can be adjusted steplessly. Even your arms are involved in the sequence of movements through the ergonomic leverdrive providing the whole upper body with the positive effect.

Active and healthy driving.
The manual dual-drive combines the classic handrim propulsion with an effortless lever propulsion for long distance drives.
The lever propulsion disburdens your shoulders and wrists. You can can go long distance without extra effort. Even slopes are no problem anymore, thanks to the up to 11-speed gearshift. Change of gear is easy to handle, also while driving. The steering and breaking is integrated in the levers and is operated through tilting of the handle. The levers are connected to each other, making it possible to drive the wheelchair with just one hand or unequal force distribution, smallest lever movements are sufficient.
To maneuver comfortably indoors and to tilt the wheelchair simply switch to the classic handrim propulsion. The levers can be stored telescopically so they don’t disturb on short distances and transfers.
The dynamic propulsion and seating system of DESINO were developed in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University, German Sport University Cologne and TH Köln and were approved by medical specialists and by studies. The concept has been repeatedly awarded:
