Zippie Iris Tilt-in-Space Wheelchair

The Zippie Iris offers cutting-edge rotation-in-space wheelchair technology designed just for kids.

This tilting wheelchair uses patented rotation-in-space technology to rotate the seat frame around the user’s center of gravity. This rotational system provides the shortest possible wheelbase without compromising stability, while ensuring a smooth and controlled rotation. The Iris is available in both a rigid and folding frame using the XLOCK® folding crossbrace option.

The Zippie Iris also comes with the True Fit Program, a complete growth package for free.

Features:

40° or 55° of Intelligent Rotation in Space Technology

With patented Intelligent Rotation in Space technology, the Zippie Iris seat frame rotates around the child’s centre of gravity. The rotation arm was designed specifically for paediatric users to ensure a smooth tilting motion. It also helps children remain comfortable and secure while tilting, and it is easy for parents and caregivers to control.

Available with 40° or 55° rotation ranges that can be set to achieve up to 45° or 60° of posterior rotation, the Iris offers superior positioning capabilities.

Growth capabilities

The Zippie Iris paediatric wheelchair is designed to maintain proper support for your child as they grow. The folding frame option offers up to 4″ of built-in depth growth and 2″ of built-in width growth. The rigid frame option is available with width-adjustable strut tubes.

Additionally, through the Zippie True Fit Growth program, the original Zippie Iris owner qualifies for one free growth kit within five years. The growth kid includes all parts and components needed to adjust the seat width/depth of the wheelchair. 

Accessories for Caregiver Convenience

The Zippie Iris is available with a wide variety of options to help you manage daily activities involving your child’s care. The Foot Release Tilt Actuator eliminates exposed cables.
