Convaid has teamed up with R82 to bring you our newest generation of tilt-in-space wheelchairs, meeting the needs of a wide range of children living with special needs, from early intervention up to the weight of 110-pounds.
Proudly made in USA, the new lightweight Convaid Trekker is compact with an improved docking interface, making it easy to slide the seat and lock it to attach, detach or reverse the seat. The frame easily folds into a compact and lightweight package with or without the seat, a maneuver that can be now accomplished with one hand. Parents and caregivers can now enjoy highly versatile seating options, including use of the Trekker seating module with the R82 High-Low indoor frame to promote Activities of Daily Living; or, use the R82 Stingray Size 1 seat with the Trekker frame.
Effective October 1, 2018, the current Trekker has been replaced with the new Trekker.
Since the merger of Convaid and R82 in 2015, the Research & Design teams have been working on taking the best technical elements of products from both brands to improve product quality and functionality for products within their diverse range of pediatric complex rehabilitation solutions. The most recent application is the incorporation of the R82 innovative docking interface on the new and improved Convaid Trekker, allowing for use of an extended seating range including the R82 Stingray Size 1 seating module, as well as the attachment of the Trekker seating module to the R82 High Low Indoor Frame.
Research suggests that adaptive seating systems may be able to improve activity and participation at home among children living with severe Cerebral Palsy. The Trekker can be used to establish an ideal seating position and promote inclusion for children and youngsters with disabilities to play and engage in activities that help develop their motor and social skills.
The lightweight, tilt-in-space Trekker is a best-in-class folding wheelchair that can be customized to each individual’s physical needs. It was designed to last and provide the optimal comfort, safety and mobility.
