40° or 55° of Intelligent Rotation in Space Technology

With patented Intelligent Rotation in Space technology, the Zippie IRIS tilt in space wheelchair features a seat frame that rotates around the child’s center 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.

Optional Folding Frame

The Zippie IRIS recline wheelchair now offers the benefits of both rotation-in-space technology and an optional folding frame. Its patented XLOCK® folding crossbrace fully locks when unfolded for superior rigidity, and folds into a compact size for convenient transport.

Accessories for Caregiver Convenience

The IRIS wheelchair 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. Push-button hub locks located on the back canes are compact, easy to access, and easy to operate for any caregiver. Standard with the Height Adjustable backrest, the Angle Adjustable Stroller Handle has 260° of angle adjustability to fit varying caregiver heights and to enable pushing from a tilted position.

Growth Capabilities

The 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 True Fit Growth program, the original Zippie IRIS owner qualifies for one free growth kit within 5 years. The growth kit includes all parts and components needed to adjust the seat width/depth of the chair.

MONO Backrest System

The MONO Backrest System’s single back post offers limitless seating and positioning capabilities. By mounting the backrest to a single central post, the backrest and chair widths may be selected independently to accommodate users with varying torso and hip widths. Hardware interference is eliminated, allowing for infinite adjustment of lateral thoracic supports. The MONO Backrest System can also achieve 1″ or 2″ of midline backrest offset to accommodate asymmetrical postures, features 85º of angle adjustment, and offers an optional dynamic function, which allows for controlled movement of the backrest.
