Hippocampe All-Terrain Beach Wheelchair

The Hippocampe Beach and All-Terrain Wheelchair was designed to provide access for wheelchair users to places they might otherwise never be able to enjoy, such as the beach and other areas with terrain that may be difficult to traverse using a standard wheelchair. Whether it's snow, sand, water, or rocky areas, the Hippocampe can travel them all.

This unique wheelchair is equipped with a removable push bar and traction kit that allow it to be pushed by a caregiver or friend, but it is also designed to provide independence to its user. The Hippocampe is easily self-propelled and it floats in water for safe and easy exit.

Great for the Beach

The Hippocampe is ideal for aquatic use with its quick-drying hydrophobic seat. The thick foam is both comfortable to sit on and resistant to water for convenient beach use. Balloon wheels are also available as an option for the Hippocampe to allow it traverse more easily over fine sand. The wheelchair's frame is made of stainless corrosion-resistant aluminum that won't rust, and a special coating prevents it from getting hot in the sun.
