Growth Capabilities

Growth Capabilities

The GS was designed to accommodate the changes your child may experience throughout the life of the chair. Both the rigid and folding frames and the versatile growing seat pan allow for up to 2" of width growth and up to 4" of depth growth! Adjustable components including armrests and legrests maintain proper positioning during development.

Folding and Rigid Frame Options

Folding and Rigid Frame Options

No two families are identical. To accommodate differing priorities and lifestyles, the GS is available with a folding frame or a rigid frame. The folding frame is a good choice for families needing to store the chair in a vehicle or in tight spaces at home. With fewer moving parts, the rigid frame option requires the least amount of propulsion effort and offers the lowest overall weight.

Standard and Reverse Wheel Placements

Standard and Reverse Wheel Placements

Self-propulsion allows children to explore and interact with their environment. The GS provides the best access to the wheels during different stages of development. If your child has a shorter arm reach or would benefit from being able to see the wheels, placing the push wheel at the front of the frame (reverse) can encourage use and self-propulsion. As they grow, the wheels may then be moved to the rear of the frame (standard) for the best wheel access.

Dual Seat Rails

Dual Seat Rails

When it comes to pediatric wheelchairs, there is not much real estate for attaching options and accessories! The GS's dual seat rails allow the seat to be mounted separately from the armrests, wheel locks, and other options to avoid parts interference.

Frequently Asked Questions

The total width of your wheelchair can be found in the user manual (or in the ordering documentation of your wheelchair). What is important to know when it comes to manual wheelchairs is if you have a camber, the overall width increases rapidly. For example, a wheelchair with 6 degrees camber and 24 "wheels, becomes 80 mm wider than a chair with 0 degrees camber.

Please consult your user manual for more information on setting changes for your wheelchair.

Yes, our Built-4-Me team can help you achieve requirements that go above and beyond what you would find on the typical product order form. They'll make every effort to provide you with the most suitable solution to your request. 

We'd recommend that your wheelchair is serviced by an authorised Sunrise Medical dealership every year. For your safety, some elements of your wheelchair should be checked regularly. Please refer to your user manual for more information.

If you have a folding wheelchair, your serial number will be on the cross-brace (the folding bars underneath the seat of your wheelchair). If you have a rigid wheelchair, the serial number will be on the rear side of the frame.
