Wheelchair for Toddlers Designed by Sunrise Medical Now Offered by Rehabmart.com
Sized specifically for toddlers and young children, the Zippie® Kidz Wheelchair features a low seat that allows small children to sit at the same level as other children their age. This low vantage point enhances interaction with their peers, making that contact easier and lowering the risk of the child in the chair being perceived as ‘different.’

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Sunrise Medical to offer their Zippie® Kidz Wheelchair for toddlers to a wider consumer audience. Founded in 1983, Sunrise Medical is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of home-care and extended-care products. Built from many of the most popular brands in the home care industry, the Sunrise family of products includes Quickie, Breezy, Jay, Sterling, Sopur, Coopers and Zippie.

Sized specifically for toddlers and young children, the Zippie® Kidz Wheelchair features a low seat that allows small children to sit at the same level as other children their age. This low vantage point enhances interaction with their peers, making that contact easier and lowering the risk of the child in the chair being perceived as ‘different’. This low seat height makes independent transfers easier as well. The Zippie® Kidz is intended to be self-propelled by the child, but a tall Stroller Handle option is available for caregivers and parents to push the chair without having to lean over. This durable, rigid-style wheelchair responds to the young user’s demands as if it were an extension of their own body, offering superb balance, precise control and sensational performance.
Weighing only 14 pounds makes it easy for the parents or caregivers to transport this chair, while it offers a weight capacity of 150 pounds. Standard and optional features abound for this chair, with choices that include standard or reverse frame configurations, a wide variety of colors, frame width, frame and upholstery depth, seat upholstery, seat height, folding or non-folding backrests, regular or long footrests with/without leg straps and/or high mounts, different sizes for armrests, caster selections,varied rear wheel and rear wheel tire selections, quick-release or quad quick-release axles, anodyzed aluminum or plastic coated handrims, high push or high pull wheel locks, and rear or front anti-tipper tubes for standard or reverse configurations. Other optional accessories include an upper extremity support tray, spoke guards, positioning belts, backpacks and a tool kit.
