Reclining & Tilt in Space Wheelchair VIP2 | Karma
With the Karma Recliner wheelchair VIP2 you can relax without limitation.
It is often said that mobility should never be limited by distance. The VIP 2 is a tilt-in-space and reclining wheelchair in one. It allows users with partial trunk control to traverse like everyone else and provides optimal pressure relief and positioning on the chair. Its lightweight folding design makes it the best wheelchair to travel with.
The Tilt-in-Space system allows the wheelchair user to change position throughout the day, which will redistribute and relieve pressure. This feature helps reduce the risk of developing a 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.
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 synchronizes the motion of the body and the chair and minimizes the sliding and the shearing when reclining or sitting upright.
The VIP 2 is lightweight and foldable and fits easily into a car trunk. The additional push-bar makes it easy to push and maneuver with just one hand and at the same time, reinforces the structure of this folding wheelchair.
The curved headrest provides a wide range of adjustment and positioning. The head pad angle can be adjusted based on the user’s head.
Unlike conventional wheelchairs, the backrest uses adjustable velcro straps to change the tension and conform according to the wheelchair user. This helps prevent slouching and the hammock effect.
Adjust the height of the armrest by moving it up or down until you find the ideal height. A proper armrest height is helpful to relieve loads on the neck, shoulders, and arms and alleviate stress on the back. No tools required.
The armrest is fully detachable and offers greater convenience transferring on and off the wheelchair. The VIP2 allows for easy transfer, on and off the wheelchair and detaches with no tools required.
The upholstery is treated with Aegis Microbe Shield, which is approved by the FDA, EPA, EU, etc.. The anti-microbial upholstery inhibits bacterial and fungal growth, eliminates odor and is designed for easy cleaning. It is a shield for your health. Change the upholstery as the season changes to match the warm or cold weather.
The tilt-only chair is equipped with Angle Adjustable Backrest: -5°/ 0°/ 5°/ 10°/ 15°. It is also designed to be compatible with aftermarket backrest manufacturers, such as Jay and Matrix.
Select from the options available to customize your seat. The back height is available in two sizes: 49cm or 54cm. The seat to floor height is available in two sizes: 49cm (7 in” castor wheels) or 46.5cm (6 in” castor wheels).
The tipper prevents the wheelchair from tipping back.
