Convaid R82 Announces Launch of Convaid Flyer Pediatric Tilt-in-Space Wheelchair

Special needs children can now graduate from stroller-style wheelchair to an all-day, width, depth and height adjustable portable wheelchair

TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Convaid Flyer™ is the latest addition to the robust Convaid | R82 portfolio of tilt-in-space pediatric wheelchairs. Getting where you need to go has never been easier for special needs children who can graduate with ease from a stroller-style wheelchair to an all-day pediatric wheelchair that is width, depth and height-adjustable.

The lightweight Convaid Flyer™ is a modular and portable wheelchair developed with youth and growth in mind that also accommodates aftermarket seating. The Convaid Flyer™ is highly customizable with many options and accessories for comfort, support and positioning. It complies with WC19 standards for safe transportation.

Ideal for everyday indoor and outdoor use, the modular and lightweight Convaid Flyer™ allows for simple removal of the seating module from the mobility base for ease in lifting, transport and storage. It is growth-adaptable by making simple adjustments to increase width, depth and height so that children can enjoy the wheelchair through young adulthood.  

"The Convaid Flyer is our latest addition to our expansive tilt-in-space portfolio and allows individuals with disabilities and their families the freedom to do more and live richer and fuller lives. At Convaid | R82 we strive to create wheelchairs that are portable, easy to use and provide the support and comfort needed for each unique individual, while meeting the needs of clinical therapists," said Etac NA President, Ryan B.
