The Safari Tilt Transit Option – For children who must remain in their wheelchair during travel, a Convaid, compact-folding, transit wheelchair that meets WC19 standards is the safest choice. The Transit Option can be ordered on almost any Convaid wheelchair. The Convaid Transit Chair is a convenient, compact-folding wheelchair that is RESNA-WC19 compliant and has been “crash-tested” to proper industry standards. The Transit Option is ideal for transport on the bus to school, day programs, or field trips. The Transit Option requires the chair come equipped with 4 bright red anchors, headrest extension, positioning belt and foot positioners. All Convaid Safari Tilt wheelchairs with a “T” in the model name, are WC19 Transit Ready and can be used as seating in a bus or van.
Wheelchair options include multi-positioning, elevating legrests; height-adjustable, swing-away footplates; height-adjustable, flip-up armrests; and toggle wheel locks, for extra safety. The 4″ seat-depth adjustment allows for your child’s growth, and the attractive Cordura fabric removes for machine washing, providing you with years of use.
Comes with a lifetime frame warranty.
The Safari features include an extended range of tilt for feeding, stabilizing and comfort; adjustable recline; and a flat planar seat for solid support.
