Sunrise Medical Zippie Salsa M2 Teens Powerchair
- Ideal for slender teens and adults
- Adjustable seating
- Great outdoor performance
The Zippie Salsa M2 Teens is a version of the popular Salsa M2 designed to cater for teenagers and particularly slender adults. Offering the best of both words, it combines the narrow seat width available on the kids' Zippie Salsa M2 with the depth and legrest length offered by the adult version of the Salsa M2.
The Zippie Salsa M2 Teens' seat width can be adjusted from 12 inches to 16 inches, allowing it to cater for those with narrow bodies. The adjustability means it can be set to fit perfectly, rather than taking a "one size fits all" approach found on more basic wheelchairs. This also allows future adjustments to be made, so the wheelchair can adapt to your needs over time. Featuring seat depths of 16 - 20 inches and longer footrests than those found on the children's Zippie Salsa M2, the teens version can cater to a wide range of heights, making it ideal for growing teenagers and adults that are too slim for the standard Salsa M2.
The Salsa M2 Teens comes with all the outdooor performance one would expect from from the powerful Salsa M2 base, its advanced suspension offering a smooth ride over uneven terrain. Anti-pitch technology eliminates the risk of pitching on slopes, keeping the wheelchair user safe on slopes of up to 8°. While some more basic mid-wheel drive powerchairs may struggle on uneven surfaces and ramps, the Salsa's all-wheel independent suspension allows it to negotiate them with ease. A long range of 16 miles means that the Salsa should never be without power, even when tackling rough terrain.
Equally at home indoors, mid-wheel drive allows the Zippie Salsa M2 Teens to turn on the spot, and the narrow width of the wheelchair means that it can easily fit through doors and confined spaces. While most other powerchairs will offer a compromise between indoor manoeuvrability and outdoor performance, the Salsa is truly able to handle both with ease. The standard VR2 controller is simple to use, while an upgrade to the more advanced R-net controls is available if required.
For those with more specialist needs, a vast range of seating options are available with the Salsa, including comfort cushioning, backrests, headrests, legrests and lateral supports. Additionally, various powered postural additions can be fitted to the Salsa, including powered lift, powered tilt, powered recline and powered elevating leg rests.
The Zippie Salsa M2 Teens is also fully crash tested making it safe for occupied transport when tied down in a suitably adapted vehicle.
Please note that the model pictured is the original Salsa M Teens, without the Salsa M2 base.
The Zippie Salsa M2 Teens is a top of the range powerchair that is equally at home both indoors and outdoors. The adjustable seating sets it apart from its competitors, and makes it an ideal option for teenagers and slim adults who might otherwise struggle to find a wheelchair that offers a perfect fit.
