Adjustments and Growth
The Little Wave wheelchair can grow alongside your child, with three inches of both seat width and depth growth available to provide a perfect fit for years, more than most competitor chairs can grow by. Other aspects of the chair can be adjusted, including footrest length and backrest height, and the modular design makes it easy to adapt to changing requirements.
All aspects of the Little Wave can be configured, including functional, comfort and style options. A popular upgrade is Ki’s unique Dynamic 5th wheel, which provides stability without impeding your child’s ability to develop their wheelchair skills.
The seating can be fully set up to accommodate a vast range of requirements, and specialist backrests and cushions can be fitted too, including the popular and attractive Axiom backs from Ki Mobility – as in the photos.
A range of push handles, including height-adjustable ones and an ergonomic stroller-style handle, are available to allow comfortable and convenient pushing of the wheelchair when required.
The super-light Little Wave XP is designed to easily fit in a car – simply fold down the backrest, which then locks in place, and pop the quick-release wheels off. The wheelchair is then reduced to a compact, easy to transport size, that will fit in the back of almost every car.
For occupied transport, tie-down brackets are available, as the Little Wave XP is fully crash-tested.
20 frame colours, plus a range of hydrographics, are available, while Spinergy or Mag wheels can be coloured too, to make the wheelchair stand out. If you have an Axiom back, this can be painted to match – or contrast with – the frame colour, further enhancing the Little Wave’s appearance. Finally, one of the most popular options is the light-up rollerblade wheels, which are sure to turn heads.
Children’s wheelchairs like this one are built to order following an assessment with one of our Prescriptive Assessors. They are available with a wide range of customisation options, including safety, seating and style upgrades, and these can affect the price – our Prescriptive Assessors will run through all the options at your assessment. However it is possible to get a fully functioning and desirable wheelchair at the base price!
Paediatric wheelchair purchases will often qualify for zero-rated VAT. If the child using the wheelchair has a permanent disability, terminal illness or chronic sickness then they will be eligible for 0% VAT. Our Prescriptive Assessors will be able to answer any questions you may have about VAT.
