This is a high quality paediatric / children’s self propelled wheelchair with lots of features making it comfortable and practical for younger users up to 110kgs in weight. The UGO Sprite wheelchair is built around a very strong yet lightweight cross braced aluminium tubular frame. Not only does this mean that it is very strong, but that the Sprite is designed to stand up to the everyday knocks and bumps.
The push handles (shown extended) are height adjustable to ensure that the carer or parent is comfortable in pushing the chair. The back rest can be tensioned to suit the support / comfort requirements of the child. The arm pads are height adjustable for optimum support and flip back to make transfers easy. Beneath the arm pad there is a plastic side panel to keep clothing away from the wheels.
The foot rests swing in/out to remove obstacles when standing. The additional one piece foot rest means the feet can be placed anywhere within the seat width giving lots of freedom for children’s feet. It is easy to keep clean as the seat and back rest are made with a breathable nylon fabric which is simple to wipe down and then dries very quickly.
A well made paediatric wheelchair
The front castors are 6″ in diameter and are mounted on aluminium forks for maximum strength. The rear wheels are 22″ in diameter and are quick release for easy disassembly for storage and transportation. The rims on the rear wheels are aluminium as are the frame fixed hand brakes, which are easily reached by both the wheelchair user and attendant.
In summary this wheelchair is a very well thought out model and at a very reasonable price.
