Zippie GS

 Zippie GS with blue frame Zippie GS

Named for its built-in growth system, the Zippie® GS™ offers frame and component growth, standard and reverse wheel configurations, and folding and rigid frame wheelchair options to keep up with children's ever-changing lives!

No two families are identical. To accommodate differing priorities and lifestyles, the GS kids wheelchair is available with a folding frame or a rigid frame. The folding frame is a good choice for families needing to store the wheelchair in a vehicle or in tight spaces at home. With fewer moving parts, the rigid frame option requires the least amount of propulsion effort and offers the lowest overall weight.

Self-propulsion allows children to explore and interact with their environment. The GS provides the best access to the wheels during different stages of development. If your child has a shorter arm reach or would benefit from being able to see the wheels, placing the push wheel at the front of the frame (reverse) can encourage use and self-propulsion. As they grow, the wheels may then be moved to the rear of the frame (standard) for the best wheel access.
