Wolturnus A/S is a 100% Danish, privately-owned company. Since 2002, we have developed, manufactured and sold wheelchairs, sports wheelchairs and handbikes in Denmark and abroad. The Wolturnus design team comprises specialists from the cycling industry and wheelchair users who have competed in elite sports at world-class level for many years. All wheelchairs and handbikes are handmade in Denmark. Wolturnus wheelchairs and handbikes are renowned for their durability, stability and for a good and healthful seated position. The geometry of a wheelchair is key to the way it handles. We design frame that minimise rolling and turning resistance and maximises stability.
Wolturnus offers a wide range of light, robust rigid wheelchairs to suit every need. The active wheelchairs are available as adjustable standard models or customised with ergonomic frame design for better seating position and propulsion. The frames are made from the strongest weldable aluminium alloy in the world, typically used in armoured vehicles, motorcycles and high-end bicycles. To further increase durability, the surface is treated using a special technology that prevents dents and scratches. Some of the most popular models are the W5, the HAWK and the Tukan
In 2013, twin brothers Steen and Peder Mondrup contacted Wolturnus with a very unusual assignment: they asked Wolturnus to design a special wheelchair that would let them run together. That was the start of a unique partnership. The result: Wolturnus now manufactures a specially-designed Team Twin Edition racing wheelchair that is available both in Denmark and abroad. As a result of oxygen deprivation at birth, Peder has been wheelchair-dependent his whole life. That has never stopped him doing sports with his twin. Competing together as Team Tvilling (Team Twin), the brothers have achieved many impressive results including and Ironman. Learn more
