Children like getting into things, from tight corners to playgrounds to slipping under the table at school next to a best friend. Thanks to its speed and maneuverability, the Skippi goes right with them. With its many configuration options, Skippi can also be changed as a child’s needs shifts, letting the product adapt to the child, not the reverse.
Just like in school, multiple choice makes it a easier to get the answer you want. Seat width, seat depth, leg position and all adjust separately, as can the telescoping leg support. These increase comfort, support, and the ability to grow with the child.
Other choices provide just the right amount of function. For example, optional electric or mechanical seat tilt, electric back angle adjustment, support person control, therapy tray, and seat pan adapter. Various foot rests, head support systems and other wheelchair accessories can also be easily installed or added.
In daily use, parents have the option of adjusting the seat and the backrest for their child - from an upright seating position so that the child is well positioned to take in his or her environment, to a reclined position for relaxation. Parents can disassemble Skippi in a few easy steps and stow it in a car trunk for transport.
The standard Skippi power wheelchair allows for maneuvering via a common joystick method. The optimized Skippi + model allows for your choice of alternative drive options such as a headarray, sip-n-puff, etc.
