The chair that grows with you.

Designed to grow with a child for years to come, the Koala Mini-flex is the ideal pediatric wheelchair for toddlers. While it is scaled to fit the needs of children, the Koala is built with the same rugged motor and front-wheel-drive technology as Permobil’s full-size adult chairs.

The low seat-to-floor height allows little users to interact at the same height as their peers, and the integrated elevation provides them with easy access to a variety of surface heights such as tables and desks. Plus, the tilt feature offers improved stability and rest, a necessity after a long day of play.
