More Information



Other chairs say they grow, but new parts or growth kits are required. With the Twist, growth is built in. Sized from 8″ x 8″ up to 15″ x 16″, the Twist offers 2″ of growth in seat width and 3″ of growth in seat depth.

Full adjustability

The Tru-Fit system opens up the world of adjustability by incorporating an infinite adjustment mechanism. The Tru-Fit system allows you to fine tune the fit of your wheelchair because you are not limited to a series of pre-set holes.

If your child is tired, a hill looms ahead, or you just feel like lending a hand, the Twist has the option of Height Adjustable Push Handles (pictured) or a Center-Mounted Push Handle. Height-adjustable and easily removable, the handles are there when you want it and not when you don’t.
