Available with a full range of easily tailored options and accessories, they’re wheelchairs that can be as distinctive as your child’s personality.

Spokeguards are plastic covers that fit over your wheelchair's rear wheel. Attached using cable ties, they help to prevent your fingers getting caught between the wheel's spokes when propelling your wheelchair. They're also a great way of adding a flair of personalisation. Available in a variety of designs, our Built-4-Me bespoke wheelchairs department can even produce spokeguard covers with your own, unique design!
Sideguards are mounted on the left and right side of your wheelchair. They help to protect your hands and clothing from the dirt and water that can be kicked up by the wheels of your wheelchair. Sideguards an be fixed or removable and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
If you have a folding wheelchair, your serial number will be on the cross-brace (the folding bars underneath the seat of your wheelchair). If you have a rigid wheelchair, the serial number will be on the rear side of the frame.
Handrims (sometimes called pushrims) are the part of the rear wheel that you grip to propel your wheelchair. Attached to the outside of the wheel, they're available in a variety of materials (including aluminium, stainless steel or titanium). Handrims are also available with rubber coating or can be equipped with rubber strips that fits over the surface of the handrim to help increase friction. The distance of the handrim to the wheel can be adjusted according to your needs.
Camber is the angle of the wheelchair's rear wheels in relation to the ground. Traditionally, the rear wheels are at 90° to the ground, so the camber measurement is 0. A negative camber (usually seen in sports wheelchairs) adjusts the angle of the rear wheels inwards, so they're easier to grasp - helping to manouvre your wheelchair with less force. The increased width from the spacing of the wheels also helps to improve lateral stability (but can also make it more difficult when navigating narrow environments).
ZIPPIE folding wheelchairs are a great option for children with changing needs, whether independent or dependent. They are ideal if your child has changing needs or your family requires a highly portable option for storing in tight spaces or portability by vehicle. Designed specifically for kids, ZIPPIE folding wheelchairs are simple to use, reliable and include built-in adjustments to keep up with your child as they grow!
ZIPPIE rigid wheelchairs are ideal for active and independent children. Easier to propel, they are highly responsive, lightweight and offer precise control, superb balance and exceptional performance. Paediatric-specific options support children’s unique needs, while growth accommodation allows the wheelchair to grow and change as the child’s body, lifestyle, environment and skills change.
ZIPPIE paediatric tilt-in-space wheelchairs are designed to improve your child's positioning by helping to facilitate feeding and respiratory function, reduce pressure and improve their line of sight by holding your child's head upright. Designed specifically for kids, a ZIPPIE tilt-in-space wheelchair provides all of the simplicity that you'd come to expect from ZIPPIE, along with the built-in adjustments to keep up with your child's changing needs.
