The Zippie® Zone™ is an innovative, ultra lightweight, and option-rich pediatric rigid frame 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 kids wheelchair 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.
When it comes to pediatric mobility, every pound holds more weight. That's why we used 7000 series aerospace aluminum to make the Zone's feather light frame. Combining this material, our ShapeLoc Technology heat-treating process, and ovalized tubing increases strength, allows for thinner tube walls, and decreases overall weight to create a wheelchair that is lighter, just as strong, and more budget-friendly than titanium.
