It comes in 4 sizes and has many features that are adjustable as the child grows. Kudu has been designed to offer exceptional adjustability. Backrest height and seat depth can be extended without having to change cushions. The cushions have a one-piece removable upholstery that provides comfort for the child and brings simplicity to the overall design. A significant feature on the Kudu is the self-centering tilt-in-space that provides effortless tilting of the seat while maintaining optimum balance. Kudu remains stable with the back reclined and the self-centering tilt-in-space activated. Ergonomic considerations have been taken into account to enhance the child’s comfort and minimize the caregiver’s effort when manoeuvring the wheelchair. Kudu is designed with a facility to change the back recline angle without tools. For convenient transportation purposes, the back rest can be collapsed horizontally and the wheels can be removed.
The base of the seat and the back rest are equipped with a mechanism that makes it possible to adjust height and depth as well as mount fix-locks for vest and belts.
Self centering tilt-in-space and back recline
The curved tilt-in-space beam ensures the stability of the wheelchair and allows adjustment of the tilt-in-space with a minimum amount of effort of caregivers. The angle between the back and seat can be adjusted using the back recline.
Position of the rear wheel
The rear wheel can be mounted in three different horizontal positions, to establish the best position of the center of gravity for the individual user. The frame of Kudu is short and compact which makes it easy to maneuver.
Secure and Portable Transportation
The Kudu complies with ISO 7176-19 for transporting children in motor vehicles (max weight is 125 lbs).
