Tilt in Space
Zippie's Iris features a unique slider tilt mechanism that rotates around the wheelchair's centre of gravity, keeping the length of the Iris incredibly compact and the weight of the chassis to a minimum. Two tilt ranges are available - the standard 55° or a shorter 40° range that incorporates shortened sliders for even more weight reduction. In both cases, the tilt range can be shifted by 5° in either direction, allowing for either some anterior (forward) tilt to aid transfers, or further rearward tilt to take it up to 60°.
The Iris is designed to interface with third party seating systems, from Sunrise's own JAY seating to third party systems or even moulded seats. The adjustable frame ensures it can be set up in your child's size, and adjusted as they grow, with the modular design able to be adapted over time if required.
Other seating options include a reclining backrest, a choice of nine different armrests, numerous armrest pads, and a wide variety of legrests to accommodate contractures and more.
Functional options include the ability to pick either transit or self-propelled wheels, pneumatic or solid tyres, tray tables, spoke guards, and hub brakes - the Iris can truly be built to meet your demands.
The modern frame design is available in a choice of bright colours, making a real difference from the drab clinical look many wheelchairs tend to have.
The Iris is rightly considered Sunrise's flagship paediatric tilt in space wheelchair, and offers a magnitude of tilt not found elsewhere - we would therefore highly recommend it.
While the Iris is relatively lightweight, its frame does not fold, so if you are looking to regularly travel with your wheelchair, it is worth considering Ki Mobility's Little Wave Arc, Progeo's Junior Tekna Tilt 2.0, and Leggero's Enzo, as these all offer tilt in space on folding frames.
