Small. Light. Robust.

The compact and lightweight SKIPPY® therapy chair sets new standards in handling, functionality and robustness. As a modular seating system, SKIPPY® consists of a seating unit and an indoor subframe permanently connected to it. The seat shell can be adjusted while the patient is sitting in it.

Product details

The innovative SKIPPY® therapy chair is designed for indoor use. It is ideal for small patients weighing up to 25 kg who have difficulty assuming or maintaining a sitting position due to functional and/or structural damage to their trunk. These include neurological and neuromuscular diseases and deformities of the spine. SKIPPY® is characterized by its modern design, its dynamically movable backrest and the simple adjustment options during use.

New design, high-quality materials

SKIPPY® consists of a seat and backrest unit and a base frame with smooth-running castors, which offers optimum freedom of movement indoors. The seat and backrest unit is made of lightweight aluminum and equipped with anatomical basic padding. This ensures long-term, pain-free sitting in a physiological posture. The removable and washable covers are available in different colors and feature SKIPPY® lettering in the same color as the base frame.

Dynamic, adjustable backrest

Thanks to its dynamic backrest, the SKIPPY® therapy chair is also particularly suitable for patients with involuntary stretching movements. The backrest is connected to the seat shell via physiological pivot points. It gives way during sudden stretching movements and thus absorbs the patient’s energy. After stretching, the patient is returned to an upright position. The backrest can be fixed if required. The angle of the backrest can be tilted up to 30° for an easy reclining position. Adopting such a relaxed position saves strength and maintains attention to head and trunk control.

Simple, individual customization

The seat and back unit of the SKIPPY® therapy chair can be perfectly adapted to the patient’s needs. Back extension, seat depth and seat width are infinitely adjustable, as is the integrated abduction. The height and width of the hull guide pads can be variably adjusted. The seat angle and seat height are easily adjusted using a gas pressure spring. The individual adjustment options stabilize the torso and contribute to corrected and relieving sitting. They also allow the therapy chair to be used for a long time, even if the patient’s needs change. Particularly convenient: all settings can be made while the patient is sitting in the therapy chair.

Flexible and reusable 

Thanks to a wide range of accessories, the standardized SKIPPY® therapy chair can be equipped to suit the patient. These include fixation aids, headrests, armrests, footrests and therapy tables in various designs as well as removable covers and wetness protection. This flexibility and the high degree of standardization also allow SKIPPY® to be reused for different patients.

Medical requirements
Technical data

The SKIPPY® therapy chair is suitable for patients who, due to functional or structural damage to the trunk or trunk and neck muscles, can only sit in an impaired position and with poor posture. SKIPPY® can also be used very well in developmental phases, especially in infancy, when more frequent adjustment of the seating aid is necessary due to growth spurts in order to achieve the most physiological sitting position and a stable seat. SKIPPY® is also suitable as an alternative if the patient cannot sit on standard seating furniture for long periods of time, but no seat shell is required.
