The UGO Sprite is a high quality paediatric / children's self propelled wheelchair that has a host of features designed to create a comfortable and functional wheelchair for younger users up to 110kgs in weight. The Sprite wheelchair is built around a very strong yet lightweight cross braced aluminium tubular frame. This means that the wheelchair is incredibly strong and is designed to withstand daily knocks and bumps in its stride.
The push handles (shown extended) are height adjustable to ensure that the wheelchair attendant is as comfortable as the occupant. The seat and back rest are made using a breathable nylon fabric which is easy to wipe down and dries very fast. The back rest can be tensioned to suit the support / comfort requirements. The arm pads are height adjustable for maximum support and flip back to make transfers easy. Beneath the arm pad there is a plastic side panel which is there to keep clothing away from the wheels.
A well made paediatric wheelchair
The foot rests swing in/out to remove obstacles when standing. There is a one piece foot rest that means the feet can be placed anywhere within the seat width giving more freedom for children's feet. 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 is the frame fixed hand brakes which are easily reached by both the wheelchair user and attendant.
Overall, this wheelchair is a very well thought out model with ever conceivable feature included as standard and all at a very reasonable price. This childrens wheelchair comes in canary blue with a 14" seat as standard.
