The ZIPPIE Sphynx is the first of its kind: a truly transportable pediatric tilt wheelchair, specially designed for families on the move. With a folding frame for ultra-compact storage and a wide range of seating options, the Sphynx meets both caregiver and clinical needs in one easy-to-use wheelchair.
This price is based on standard configuration only. This item may have multiple additional extras that are not included in the published price. Please see your local authorized dealer for a detailed quote.
Tilt allows the client to change their position and shift weight from the pelvis to the back, decreasing the strain of gravity. For children with limited pelvic, thoracic, or head control, this change in positioning helps to reduce the potential of developing postural deviations later in life.
Recline opens up the seat-to-back angle which allows a change in position or posture. Changing seating angles via tilt and/or recline may assist with feeding, digestion, respiratory function, and visual orientation.
The Sphynx's recline can be quickly adjusted 85° to 100° whenever needed.
The Sphynx's static tilt setting can be adjusted to 10°, 20°, or 30° to best accommodate the child's needs.
The Sphynx's patent-pending one-step folding is quick, easy, and intuitive, transforming the wheelchair into an ultra-compact package perfect for families on the move in just seconds.
The ZIPPIE Sphynx is available with comfortable standard seating for clients with low clinical needs. Alternatively, the Sphynx can be individually configured using a number of JAY® and WHITMYER® complex rehab components for clients with more involved seating needs.
