Karman's VIP-515 Tilt-in-Space Foldable Transporter is the only lightweight tilt-in-space chair that also folds, and is one of the lightest adult transporters period. At a mere 34 lbs in transport (20" rear wheel model is 38 lbs) and with the ability to fold into an easy-carry compact form, the VIP-515 series of transporting wheelchairs is the answer to your portability needs!
This revolutionary tilt wheelchair is designed to provide the healthiest, safest ride you'll ever experience. By redistributing pressure away from your lower back and under your legs, the 515 reduces the chances of bedsores forming. It does this via an intelligent 0° - 35° center-of-gravity weight shifting adjustment mechanic that sets it apart from the competition. Coating the frame is a special anti-bacterial paint, and the Aegis upholstery is both anti-bacterial and anti-staining. Additionally, a seat belt restraint is included for added security.
Comfort is also a prime feature of this transport wheelchair. The specially designed ergonomic head pillow provides the perfect level of support and comfort. Footrests with new swing in and away functionality make entering and exiting the wheelchair a much easier process, and the full length flip-back armrests are both height adjustable and removable for the ultimate in customizable comfort. Optional elevating legrests increase the heights of comfort you can reach with this wheelchair.
With all of these impressive features - including an exceptionally durable T-6 aluminum frame and exclusive perfectly matched gas cylinders that power the tilting action of the chair - the VIP-515 transporter wheelchair earns every bit of its reputation as a revolutionary entry in the manual wheelchair market.
