A width-expandable chair that a child can grow with, the Flyer has a uniquely designed tilt-in-space base that also accepts more complex adaptive seating. The Flyer comes standard with -5 degrees to +40 degrees of tilt and 30 degrees of back angle adjustment, offers optional recline and a large selection of options and accessories to achieve ideal positioning and support.

The modular design allows for easy removal of the seating module from the mobility base for simple lifting and more compact transport.
