Various combination possibilities allow it to be quickly adjusted to the individual user's needs at any time. Its weight classification permits unilateral use for a patient weight of up to 100 kg and bilateral use for up to 160 kg. Despite its multifunctional features, it is small, light and inconspicuous – truly versatile.
