VIP2 Transit image

The VIP2 Transit from Karma Mobility is a tilt-in-space and reclining wheelchair in one. It allows users with partial trunk control to traverse like everyone else and provides optimal pressure relief and positioning on the chair. Its lightweight folding design makes it the best wheelchair to travel with.

You can choose between attendant-propelled wheelchair with 14″ rear-wheel or self-propelled wheelchair with 20″ quick-release rear wheel.

Tilt-in-Space

The Tilt-in-Space system allows the wheelchair user to change position throughout the day, which will redistribute and relieves pressure.

This feature helps reduce the risk of developing pressure ulcer and prevent discomfort associated with prolonged sitting. The weight shifting system provides a steady smooth recline and a sense of security for the user when reclining.

Anti-Sliding Reclining System

Sliding is a major concern of a standard reclining chair. Sliding creates shearing between the user’s back and back of the wheelchair and poor positioning. The VIP 2 solves this problem by locating the reclining pivot point of the chair and bringing the user’s hip joint closer to it. This placement synchronises the motion of the body and the chair and minimises the sliding and the shearing when reclining or sitting upright.

Foldable and Durable

The VIP 2 is lightweight and foldable and fits easily into a car trunk. The additional push-bar makes it easy to push and manoeuvre with just one hand and at the same time, reinforces the structure of this folding wheelchair.

Curved Headrest

The curved headrest provides a wide range of adjustment and positioning. The head pad angle can be adjusted based on the user’s head.

Tension Adjustable Backrest

Unlike conventional wheelchairs, the backrest uses adjustable velcro straps to change the tension and conform according to the wheelchair user. This helps prevent slouching and the hammock effect.

Adjustable and Detachable Armrest

Adjust the height of the armrest by moving it up or down until you find the ideal height. A proper armrest height is helpful to relieve loads on the neck, shoulders, and arms and alleviate stress on the back. No tools required. The armrest is fully detachable and offers greater convenience transferring on and off the wheelchair.

Detachable Swing-away Footrest

Allows for easy transfer, on and off the wheelchair and detaches with no tools required.
