WhizKid Wheeled Postural Support System


The WhizKid Wheeled Postural Support System combines two great products to create the perfect mobility solution for disabled children (and adults) with postural support needs in low resourced settings. WhizKid attaches the D-Seat, designed by Diversability Development Organization (DDO), to Whirlwind’s acclaimed RoughRider® all-terrain wheelchair, making it easy for children to push themselves, or be pushed, over ground that would be difficult or impossible to traverse in a standard wheelchair.

The design is consistent with the World Health Organization Guidelines on the Provision of Manual Wheelchairs in Less-Resourced Settings and perfectly complements the Wheelchair Service Training Packages.

The complete WhizKid has been built on a modular format which enables creative customization.

Features:
Adjustable seat depth
Adjustable seat width
Adjustable backrest height
Adjustable seat to back angle
Adjustable tilt angle
Adjustable height, width and depth of Lateral Trunk Supports, Abductor, Lateral Pelvic Support, Headrest, padded straps (shoulder, chest, lap, foot)
customizable cushion
removable tray

The WhizKid is available for all ages. The quick release feature of the D-Seat and the folding mechanism of the RoughRider facilitate easy transportation. Optional parts are also available for further customization.
