The position of the individual front wheel enables significantly reduced rolling and turning resistance. The minimalist design also leads to a low overall weight making it more efficient to propel.
The Gitano Junior model is a very agile, three-wheeled wheelchair and is particularly intended for active children who have a good sense of balance and who value freedom of movement. Gitano Junior is equipped with a welded back, a welded rear axle and a very light, stable frame. The entire energy of the child can flow directly into the drive. This wheelchair was designed from the ground up with the aim of achieving an optimal synergy between stability, hardness and weight.
The Gitano model is slightly longer than four-wheeled wheelchairs and with its special design it is in a league of its own when it comes to handling.
The Stimulite Corbee cushion protects children against the leading causes of decubitus ulcers by providing maximum pressure relief, reduced shearing and ventilation to control heat and moisture. Honeycomb’s innate ability to uniformly distribute weight, contour to any shape and stabilize any sitting position makes the Corbee cushion suitable for a wide variety of anatomies and disabilities. Weighing no more than 2 pounds (900g) the 2 inches (5cm) thick Corbee is an easy-care cushion for recreational and everyday use.

By providing optimum pressure relief, stability, shear force reduction and ventilation, this very comfortable cushion helps protect children’s skin against pressure sores. At 2½ inches (6.35cm) thick and weighing no more than 2 pounds (900grams), this cushion is suitable for all activities.
