XLOCK Crossbrace for Performance and Convenience

Z-Finity System for Lower Extremity Positioning
The Z-finity™ System’s footplate can be adjusted between .5″ above the seat pan to 21″ below the seat pan to provide proper support as your child grows. Its rotating hardware allows for infinite adjustment of the footrest angle and placement to achieve optimal positioning of the feet, ankles, and knees.
Z-finity is available with both of the X’CAPE’s front frame options – Swing-in/Swing-out and Fixed. Choose Swing-in/Swing-out hangers for aid in transfers and pulling up close to cabinets and counters. Choose Fixed hangers for the lightest weight configuration and an active style.
VersaRail for Limitless Seating and Accessory Options
Pediatric wheelchairs often don’t provide enough space to mount multiple components and accessories – custom seating, armrests, wheel locks, and side guards – leaving you in the tough spot of choosing what is most important. VersaRail’s unique design accepts both bolt-on mounts and mounting clamps, and allows for shared placement of these components. so your child has access to all the options they need – no compromises.
The VersaRail also makes ordering simple by offering one seat rail system that is compatible with both sling upholstery and custom seating options.
