The Zippie® Zone™ is an innovative, ultra lightweight and option-rich pediatric rigid wheelchair that is perfect for active kids and teens. Designed for the unique needs of kids, the Zone offers numerous growth options and provides the greatest wheel access for independent mobility.
One thing we’re certain of is that kids will grow! That’s why the Zone features 3″ of depth growth built right into the frame. An extra 2″ of growth is built into the sling upholstery. To expand frame width, simply replace a few parts, instead of the whole wheelchair frame.
With independence comes confidence. Every inch of the Zone was designed to give kids the best possible wheel access for efficient propulsion. With features such as the inset backrest, flip-up, angle adjustable footrest and hub lock located on the seat rail, kids are able to independently access the wheels, transfer in and out of the wheelchair, and access the wheel locks without interference during propulsion.
When it comes to paediatric mobility, every pound holds more weight. That’s why we used 7000 series aerospace aluminium to make the Zone’s feather light frame. Combining this material with our ShapeLoc Technology heat-treating process increases strength, allows for thinner tube walls, and decreases overall weight to create a chair that is lighter, just as strong and more budget-friendly than titanium.
We want the Zone to be an expression of your child’s unique personality. Aside from its super stylish frame, the Zone also has bright options including Zebra and Glow in the Dark frame colours, light-up casters, coloured caster forks and axle plates, Spinergy wheels with multi-colour spokes, and colourful spoke guards.
