The Krabat Sheriff wheelchair is an active children’s wheelchair designed for indoor use. With the child seated on a saddle seat, his/her legs are kept separate which can help with some circulation conditions. The abducted sitting position along with the footrests provides a stable position for the child’s pelvis, and reduces the need for upper body support. A spread sitting position provides many physiological benefits.
Krabat Sheriff is an easy-to-wheel indoor wheelchair, which due to its light weight is also suitable for children with impaired arm function. An optional compensation mechanism is available that allows one-handed operation of the wheelchair. Due to its cambered wheels (camber angle 12.5°) and its light weight, it has great precision of movement and provides easy manouevrability.
The brake handle is positioned right at the front of the saddle to give easier accessibility to both chair users and their assistants. The brake handle locks both wheels and can be operated with one hand only. Little strength is needed to turn the brake on and off. The seat is designed to support the pelvis in the correct position, helping the spine maintain its natural posture. The seat and back of the chair can accommodate a SWASH orthosis for children who require this. The textile materials are durable and machine washable. Stains can easily be removed with a cloth.
Krabat Sheriff is suitable for children with a variety of diagnoses, and it is highly adaptable. The angle of the seat and backrest, and height and position of the footrests can easily be adjusted to find the optimum sitting position. All angles and positions can be set infinitely. The angle of the seat can be adjusted while the child is sitting in the chair. Each footrest can be individually adjusted. A hip belt and footrests with straps are included as standard equipment. A tipping protection device is also standard. A waistcoat and seat belt can also be delivered as optional equipment. To fully benefit from the wheelchair, the child should have some stability for the trunk of his/her body, however an independent sitting function is not necessary. The wheelchair is available in one size only and is suitable for children up to 5 years.
Krabat Sheriff is a chair for activities and social participation.
