Fixed-Tilt Positioning Wheelchairs


The Cruiser is our most popular chair for children and young adults who have poor upper body control and who may need more involved positioning options. Maximum weight capacity for largest Cruiser (CX18) is 250 pounds. It currently comes in 5 sizes (10'' wide, 12" wide, 14" wide, 16" wide, 18" wide). The 30° fixed tilt "cradles" the person and allows gravity to assist in positioning. The person's weight will open the chair wider so that the heavier the person, the more taut and firm the fabric. This design eliminates "buggy slump.". The Cruiser can be adjusted to fit and grow with the child. It looks like a normal stroller, but has extensive positioning options.


The CruisAire is an ultra lightweight version of the Cruiser (11" wide and 13" wide). Ages 1 - 6. Maximum weight capacity for the largest CruisAire (CA13) is 80 pounds. All positioning options and accessories are available. No transit model of this chair is available.
