Tilting, Reclining, Foldable
Mobility should never be limited by distance. The VIP 2 is the 2-in-1 Tilt-in-Space and reclining wheelchair. It allows users with partial trunk control to traverse like everyone else and provides optimal pressure relief and positioning on the chair. Its lightweight folding design makes it the best wheelchair to travel with.
The Tilt-in-Space system allows the wheelchair user to change position throughout the day, which will redistribute and relieve pressure.
This feature helps reduce the risk of developing pressure ulcers and prevent discomfort associated with prolonged sitting. The weight shifting system provides a steady and smooth recline and a sense of security for the user when reclining.
Sliding is a major concern for standard reclining chairs. Sliding creates shearing between the user’s back and back of the wheelchair and poor positioning. The VIP 2 solves this problem by relocating the reclining pivot point of the chair and bringing the user’s hip joint closer to it. This placement synchronises the motion of the body and the chair and minimises sliding and shearing when reclining or sitting upright.
The VIP 2 is lightweight and foldable and fits easily into a car trunk. The additional push-bar makes it easy to push and manoeuvre with just one hand and at the same time, reinforces the structure of this folding wheelchair.
