VIP2 Self Propel Tilt in Space and Recline Wheelchair is the latest addition to the Karma Mobility portfolio manual wheelchairs and offers users a superb combination of tilt in space and reclining positions to ensure they can achieve optimum levels of pressure relief, positioning and comfort at all times.
- The Tilt-in-Space system allows the wheelchair user to change position throughout the day, which will redistribute and relieves pressure.
- This feature helps reduce the risk of developing pressure ulcer and prevent discomfort associated with prolonged sitting. The weight shifting system provides a steady smooth recline and a sense of security for the user when reclining.
Anti-Sliding Reclining System
- Sliding is a major concern of a standard reclining chair. Sliding creates shearing between the user’s back and back of the wheelchair and poor positioning.
- The VIP 2 solves this problem by locating the reclining pivot point of the chair and bringing the user’s hip joint closer to it. This placement sycnronizes the motion of the body and the chair and minimizes the sliding and the shearing when reclining or sitting upright.
