KILITZ / vacuum cleaner


Floor cleaning is one of the hardest task for a wheelchair user because it is difficult to control the wheelchair with one hand. This compact vacuum cleaner always stays in the upright position when the handle is released, so that the user can use both hands for moving to next area. The positioning of components and the weight distribution make it possible.
