Paediatric specific design

The Zippie X’Cape was designed with the goal of helping children with varying mobility needs transition to their next level of independence. One of the lightest paediatric folding wheelchairs at as little as 8.6kgs, the X’cape allows your child to spend less energy on propulsion and more on playing, exploring, and being a kid! 

The X’Cape’s setup can be fine-tuned to provide the best possible access to the wheels for each child. As they grow, 2″ of growth in the crossbrace and 3″ in the seat rail keep your child positioned properly for maximum independence.

XLOCK Crossbrace for performance and convenience

The Zippie X’Cape’s patented XLOCK™ folding crossbrace fully locks when unfolded, creating a level of performance, efficiency, and durability comparable to a rigid frame wheelchair. And it couldn’t be easier to transport. One-step push-to-lock and pull-to-fold functions are easy to operate with just one hand.

Z-Finity System for lower extremity positioning

The Z-finity™ System’s footplate can be adjusted between .5″ above the seat pan to 21″ below the seat pan to provide proper support as your child grows. Its rotating hardware allows for infinite adjustment of the footrest angle and placement to achieve optimal positioning of the feet, ankles, and knees. 

Z-finity™ is available with both of the X’Cape’s front frame options – Swing-in/Swing-out and Fixed. Choose Swing-in/Swing-out hangers for aid in transfers and pulling up close to cabinets and counters. Choose Fixed hangers for the lightest weight configuration and an active style.

VersaRail for limitless seating and accessory options

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.
