Vipamat Hippocampe Beach Chair allows those with disability or mobility concerns to not only get out and about, but to push beyond the limits of most conventional wheelchairs. Lightweight and foldable, it can easily go wherever your next adventure takes you. The all-terrain Hippocampe Wheelchair tires are able to handle hiking trails and beach sand with ease. With the ski kit, the wheelchair is even able to handle the snow and icy terrain. Go out and enjoy your favorite activities regardless of the land conditions.

Pink or Blue Options

Hippocampe All-Terrain Wheelchair has one front wheel and two rear wheels that give the user autonomy to push themselves. If desired, the chair is also able to be pushed using the large bar behind the chair and also can be towed, increasing the options for the user. The Hippocampe Wheelchair lightweight frame is made of aluminum that has been treated with saltwater while the axles are made of stainless steel. For comfort, the frame has been covered by cladding to reduce the risk of burns either from heat or cold. The Hippocampe is comfortable and has several optional accessories to customize and personalize the chair.

Product Configurations

There are three different options for wheels on the Hippocampe. The chair comes with a set of all-terrain wheels that do best on mountain trails. They are not as effective on the beach sand, so there are also balloon wheels that keep the chair from sinking into the sand. If the beach isn’t your style and you prefer the mountain ranges year-round, instead of wheels, select the ski kit to glide over snow and ice with ease.

Product Features

  • Foldable and Lightweight for Easy Transportation to New Adventures
  • Autonomy for the User to Be Self-Propelled, Pushed, or Towed
  • Changeable Wheels to Accommodate All Types of Terrain
  • Balloon Wheels Float in Water for Safe Use
  • Strong Frame for Durable Support
  • Soft Padding for User Comfort

All-Terrain Wheelchair

This all-terrain wheelchair comes with wheels that allow you to self-propel over difficult terrain that standard wheelchairs are unable to negotiate. The Hippocampe wheels have larger handgrips to provide more leverage and wider drive wheels that come into contact with the ground. Instead of wedging into soft sand or soil, the Hipocampe plows right through. Get access to hiking trails, mountain trails, desert trails, and more. Experience the freedom to enjoy the outdoors with independent mobility.

Pool Access Wheelchair

The Hippocampe also serves well at the pool. Disabled users can more easily wheel themselves around the poolside to the dressing rooms or the showers. The all-terrain standard configuration of the Hippocampe can provide you with pool access. However, for additional pool access features as displayed in the photos below, you may want to consider the Hippocompe Pool Wheelchair.

Beach Wheelchair

Balloon style, rear-wheel accessories can be added to the Hippocampe to convert your all-terrain wheelchair to a beach wheelchair. Enjoy the lake, saltwater beach, or riverside sports with this conversion kit for summer fun. Soft sand, pebble beaches, wet sand, water's edge, and shallow water are easily navigable with your converted beach wheelchair.

Ski Chair

Just add the ski accessories for wintertime sport. Two rear skis attach to the frame and a front ski slides over the front wheel to convert your Hippocampe from a wheeled chair to a ski chair. The standard push bar allows a caregiver to push the ski-conversion along a snowy trail or over your snow-covered sidewalk.

Adjustability

The Hippocampe Wheelchair has many adjustable components in order to fully customize the comfort and functionality of the chair for each individual user. Many of the extras are adjustable to make them worth the additional cost. For example, the armrests are able to adjust in height and have the ability to swivel to make it easier to get in and out of the wheelchair as needed. The harness is also adjustable to accommodate different shapes and sizes of various users.

The headrest has multiple adjustments for increased comfort. It adjusts not only to the height of the user but also forward and backward as well as side to side. Lastly, the frame itself has the option for a fixed or adjustable backrest. With all of the variations in each of the extras, users are sure to be comfortable, supported, and ready to go!

Before the First Ride

There is some assembly required with this product. Make sure the directions are followed closely and that all pieces are tightly and securely connected. Remember that there is an adjustment period to get used to the new dimensions and balance of the wheelchair. When you go into the water, know that the front wheel is more buoyant. Be sure to counterbalance the weight by leaning forward as you enter the water.
