Pediatric Pictorial

Bulldozer pushing legosSetting kids into motion — so they chase the dog, fight with siblings, grab things they shouldn’t — is the ultimate goal of early-intervention mobility. Keeping kids in motion — playing sports, rolling with friends, participating in school performances — is the goal as they grow. This special pediatric section reaches toward those goals in a number of ways, from showing off seating & mobility that supports and facilitates function, to getting specific with case studies and the clinical philosophy of 24-hour postural management.


Little Wave FlipLittle Wave Flip

Designed to make that first step toward early-intervention mobility more natural for both parents and child, the Little Wave Flip combines popular stroller design elements with the durability and functionality of a wheelchair. This chair offers tilt-in-space positioning in a system that’s easy to grow; the tube-in-tube seat rail design is modular so changes can be made without replacing parts. Seat widths from 10" to 18"; seat depths from 12" to 20".
