The Snappi is a highly adaptable, special needs pushchair designed to accommodate a wide variety of seating needs.
Particular care has been given to the aesthetics of the Snappi to prevent it from resembling the medical look of traditional, special needs buggies but rather maintain the modern, attractive appearance once thought to be reserved solely for high-street pushchairs. This attractive design is manufactured from high-grade aluminium which provides both strength and durability, yet is still lightweight, easy-to-fold and suitable for everyday use. Height adjustable push handles are fitted as standard to ensure the comfort and convenience of the attendant. The Snappi uses only the highest quality wheels and castors to ensure effortless manoeuvrability. Please note that a hub brake option is also available.
The unique tilt in space facility is easily operated by a finger lever, mounted on the push handles, and offers an exceptionally high level of seat tilt between 0 and 40 degrees. There are no fixed positions for the tilt in space facility; rather, the occupant can be positioned at any angle within this 40-degree range. The tilt in space mechanism is controlled by a slow-release gas strut which ensures both the comfort and safety of the child.
The Snappi pushchair has been specially designed to offer an extensive range of growth in seat height, seat width and seat depth to cater for your child’s growing needs. Backrest reclines independently, by means of an easy-to-operate gas strut, and can be positioned at any point between its 90 to 140 degrees range of recline. This allows the child to extend and push back against a relatively light resistance and then be able to recover into the desired seating position.
Often overlooked, younger brothers and sisters are also considered in the design of the Snappi. The Snappi includes an innovative, spring-loaded catch to other children from fiddling with the release lever and accidentally releasing the interface. The interface has hard-wearing stainless steel mounting points to prevent wear and a further safety mechanism to ensure the seat can only be put on the chassis correctly.
The Snappi pushchair has been successfully crash tested according to ISO7176/19, ensuring safe transportation of the occupant in specially-adapted vehicles.
