Welcome to a new world - wheelchairs that stand you up to provide independence and a new level of mobility that redefines your life!

Since 1975, when our first stand-up wheelchair was introduced, increasing the quality of life became the top priority of LEVO. This priority assures a focus on the design and development of new products offered to you our customers.

The experts in standing – this statement is an obligation. As the first provider of this kind of product worldwide, LEVO offers a complete range of stand-up wheelchairs, which meet all individual preferences and requirements with respect to size, type of disability or location. In this way, LEVO assists the integration of disabled people into the wider community.

We offer stand-up wheelchairs for children and adults. Our chairs are available in manually propelled and powered standing or as a fully powered model. The adjustability of the height, width, and angle for the footrest, seat, armrest and backrest on all LEVO models combined with a variety of accessories allows for optimal biomechanical adjustment. Since our innovative stand-up wheelchairs are designed to meet individual needs, LEVO has become the world leader in manual and power electric standing technology wheelchairs.

Design, quality and service after the sale are our priorities worldwide and these priorities define the LEVO brand. Our international distributors and dealers have been trained by our specialists to size correct adjustments and to provide immediate service. They also work with LEVO design engineering staff to craft custom made solutions for the unique needs of each customer.

Continuous research and development is a welcome challenge for the LEVO team. To integrate advances in the market and our customers changing needs, our research and development team closely cooperates with medical specialists, therapists, rehabilitation-consultants and wheelchair users. Experts in these fields are contracted by LEVO.

Academic research and case studies analyzing the benefits of standing using stand-up wheelchairs (physical, professional, practical, physiological and financial) as well as other information are available to interested parties.

Over 30 countries are served by our international network of distributors. If your interest in standing wheelchair technologies extends to one of these countries, LEVO USA will be happy to connect you with the appropriate distributor.
