Imagine...A wheelchair that has the ability to move easily within its environment; where the wheels are in the perfect spot so that young people can use all of their strength and leverage to their advantage. Imagine...a wheelchair that has the ability to change and grow long with the person who is using it; yet it is extremely light, simple to use and easy to transport. You don't have to imagine. It's a reality. Little Wave Frame Construction
The signature 7000 series 1 3/8" aluminium frame construction of our high performance rigid frame chairs is also used to construct our paediatric chair, Little Wave. This frame construction helps keep the chair as light as possible while also keeping it extremely rigid which makes it so much easier to manoeuvre, to move around and to help your child get the most out of every push.
Lightweight design, easy adjustment and sleek profile. The CG adjustment of the Little Wave tower design is simple and straightforward, making it easier to adjust the CG, promoting growth and the proper placement of the wheel base, ensuring your child can always have the access to the wheels they need. Not to mention the clamp design allows placement of the backrest right where it needs to be because you do not need to worry about interference with hardware in order to achieve the seating position required.
Multi-Adjustable Flip-Up Footplate
We realize that clients are always growing and changing and the options you choose for their chair need to be able to accommodate these changes with ease. This footplate allows for an infinite number of positions over time so it can be repositioned as the rider grows. The 6061 aluminium base with carefully machined edges and textured black powder coat finish will withstand the wear and tear of any army...or a 5 year old! This footplate also has a strap that allows the rider to lift up their footplate without bending down.
Growing With You
Little Wave's in-frame expansion allows the chair to grow in width by using frame Xpanders that maintain the frames structural integrity far better than bolt-on cross bars. You don't add it until you need it so it is not in the way and it will not add any extra weight to the chair.
The depth is predetermined by you on the order form so it will be there when you need it. Up to 3" can be selected and is no extra charge. Allowing easy and accessible growth on-frame is important in allowing the chair to grow with the rider over time, through the years.
Easy To Move
Height-adjustable, easy to remove stroller handles make it easy for caretakers to assist the rider. Available with either a single or double handle option and the option to select standard and tall heights ensure comfort and ease of the caretaker, parent or teacher throughout the day.
The Little Wave's optional rotating 5th wheel permits more aggressive positioning of the rear wheels, allowing and promoting midline wheel access. Quickly height adjustable to adapt to varied terrain and easily removable, the 5th wheel revolutionizes paediatric mobility.
Maxx Performance Spoke
Maxx Performance is our new spoke wheel that offers performance and style without a high price tag. It features eighteen radial spokes and a high flange hub that result in increased rigidity for a more responsive, better performing wheel. The heightened level of responsiveness combined with a lightweight design give the rider the most from every push. Constructed with a 6061 series aluminium rim and straight steel spokes with a durable black satin finish for a look and feel that is anything but standard.
