the Karma VIP 515 Tilt in Space Transit Wheelchair is a revolutionary piece of equipment from one of the leading companies in the mobility industry. This type of a chair redistributes pressure to the lower back to help prevent pressure sores and skin breakdown. A tilt range of 0-35º is crucial in our weight-shifting center-of-gravity pressure relief design.
Its aluminium frame allows the wheelchair to maintain stability by moving the centre of gravity, and is highly compact because the wheelchair is foldable for travelling or storage. Fantastic additional features include lumbar support, anti-tip leavers, height adjustable and an ergonomic headrest.
VIP 515 Tilt in Space Transit Wheelchair, is supplied with standard legrest, however you have the option off swapping the standard legrest for elevating legrest. Elevating legrest are an optional extra, the allow the user to lift and extend their legs straight out in front of them.
- A “tilt-in-space” wheelchair has a better pressure relief effect than a reclining wheelchair. With the “tilt-in-space” wheelchairs, the users who have poor upper body control never slide forward involuntarily but sit steady. Thus, those reduce the pain and pressure on the hips and the caudal vertebrae and decrease the chance of having swelling or pressure ulcers on the hips.
- Karma VIP 515 wheelchair, with “Smart Security Gravity Center Creeping System, uses the shortest wheelbase to maintain the most stable center of gravity. Since the wheelchair has the center of gravity in the steadiest position, it works well in preventing the backward overturn. Thus, the wheelchair is not only easy to use but also very safe
- VIP 515 uses exclusive perfectly-matched gas strut for an intelligent center-of-gravity weight shifting seat to provide wheelchair users a wide choice of tilt-in-space angles and reaches unprecedented pressure releasing effects to reduce the risk of bedsores.The end result is the relaxed and peaceful mind and body of users
