Get in the Zone with the lightest Zippie designed for active kids and teens
The Zippie® Zone™ is an innovative, ultra lightweight, and option-rich pediatric rigid wheelchair that is perfect for active kids and teens. Designed for the unique needs of kids, the Zone offers numerous growth options and provides the greatest wheel access for independent mobility.
The Zone features 3″ of depth growth built right into the frame. An extra 2″ of growth is built into the sling upholstery. To expand frame width, simply replace a few parts, instead of the whole wheelchair frame.
Design Fit for Kids
With independence comes confidence. Every inch of the Zone was designed to give kids the best possible wheel access for efficient propulsion. With features such as the inset backrest, flip-up, angle adjustable footrest, and hub lock located on the seat rail, kids are able to independently access the wheels, transfer in and out of the wheelchair, and access the wheel locks without interference during propulsion.
Ultra Light-weight Aerospace Aluminum
When it comes to pediatric mobility, every pound holds more weight. That’s why we used 7000 series aerospace aluminum to make the Zone’s feather light frame. Combining this material, our ShapeLoc Technology heat-treating process,and ovalized tubing increases strength, allows for thinner tube walls, and decreases overall weight to create a chair that is lighter, just as strong, and more budget-friendly than titanium.
Besides its elegant frame, the Zone also has color options such as Zebra and Bright Glow in the Dark colored frame, forks and plates of colored rotating shafts, wheels and colorful Spinergy spoke guards.
Available in the following colors:
