ThevoTwist

This stroller-style pediatric folding wheelchair offers tilt in space (-10° to +31°) and recline (90° to 145°) functions for children with moderate to complex medical and positioning needs and is particularly beneficial for kids with low muscle tone in the trunk. A patented tipping-prevention function (Balance Safety System) prevents the child’s weight from shifting backward so center of gravity is maintained. Micro Stimulation Technology — an anatomically shaped spinal column plus gently moving parts — respond to the child’s natural movements to give the child tactile cues as to how he/she is sitting and to encourage improved body awareness. Seat position is reversible.
