Karma VIP2 Transit Tilt in Space & Recliner Wheelchair
The VIP2 is the latest addition to the Karma Mobility portfolio of manual wheelchairs and offers users a superb combination of tilt in space and reclining positions to ensure they can achieve optimum levels of pressure relief, positioning and comfort at all times.
The VIP2 still has 35 degree tilt and now comes with an adjustable reclining back of 30 degrees. The VIP2 comes with an adjustable headrest with a greater range of position options while other enhancements include a deeper seat for taller users and a tension adjustable backrest.
The foldable design of the VIP2 also ensures it can be easily transported in the boot of most standard family sized cars.Features:
The Tilt-in-Space system allows the wheelchair user to change position throughout the day, which will redistribute and relieves pressure.
This feature helps reduce the risk of developing 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.
Anti-Sliding Reclining System
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 synchronises the motion of the body and the chair and minimizes the sliding and the shearing when reclining or sitting upright.
Foldable and Durable
The VIP 2 is lightweight and foldable and fits easily into a car trunk. The additional push-bar makes it easy to push and manoeuvre 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.
Tension Adjustable Backrest
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.
Adjustable and Detachable Armrest
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.
Detachable Swing-away Footrest
Allows for easy transfer, on and off the wheelchair and detaches with no tools required.
AEGIS Microbe Shield
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 odour and is designed for easy cleaning. It is a shield for your health.
Upholstery with Cushion
Change the upholstery as the season change to match the warm or cold weather.
Modularized Design, Easy to Upgrade
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.
