Icon Adjustable Wheelchair

The Icon Wheelchair is a lightweight wheelchair, weighing only 21 lbs. including wheels, that has two characteristics that I feel make it a fairly unique wheelchair, suspension and adjustability. It's modular design allows for the use of off the shelf and custom seating components.

Adjustability

The first characteristic that grabbed my attention was its adjustability. This wheelchair has fifteen different adjustments that can allow it to be adjusted for function and to fit a user who goes through changes in condition and/or size. Although adults don't grow much, they do gain and lose weight and they can face some physical degeneration as years go by. Children on the other hand almost always grow and they can really benefit from a wheelchair that can grow with them.

Suspension

The second characteristic that appealed to me was the suspension system this wheelchair uses. While wheelchair suspension isn't unheard of for wheelchairs it is fairly rare. The Icon's suspension design allows it to be set to your exact weight. The compression and rebound can both be tuned to reduce fatigue and give you a custom ride over the bumps of everyday life. There is also a lock-out option for those times when you don't want suspension.
