Changeable to your needs

Jump alpha Faltrollstühle von SORG

All physiological measurements are changeable on the Jump alpha at any time; even after purchase: gripping point, length needed for turning the driving wheels, seat position, active degree, seat angle, leg room and leg-stretch-angle or camber. The same goes for (almost) all therapeutic equipment components. With our modular assembly system it is not a problem to change, replace, or build on.

 

 


Foldable Wheelchair

To keep pace in our global world, mobility is crucial. A foldable wheelchair that can be folded into a small, compact package while supporting all therapeutic goals is a real aid here. Whether it’s for daily transportation to school, work or travel, our foldable Jump models not only offer maximum flexibility, but also an impressive range of equipment options.

 


Can be set very precise

Jump alpha supports its young users with the precise settings of the power ergonomics. All equipment components can be adjusted, changed or modified during the course of therapy. Its wide range of  equipment allows many different therapy forms. And with its appealing design it is a wheelchair in which one can be seen.

 

 

 


Back tubes can be moved

With the Jump alpha, the back unit can be moved backwards by 4 cm by fitting an adapter. This extends the seat depth (distance from the front edge of the seat to the back tube) by 4 cm and gives you more space to the rear, e.g. for fitting a seat shell. The back cushion of the seat shell can therefore be levelled out, which is a great advantage for the sitting position in the wheelchair.

Therapeutical approach

The biggest wish of any disabled person is not to be disabled! As this is only possible in rare cases, the second biggest wish is considerably more modest: living a life as close as possible to ‘normal’ conditions. This primarily means to be little dependent on external help, to decide independently and organize one’s life autonomously. The legislator has introduced unambiguous requirements (SGB IX, §§ 5 ff) and declared inclusion as one of the highest aims in our society. Thus, we set highest priority to flexibility of equipment and adjustment options in order to be able to contribute with our sophisticated solutions to the inclusion of people with disabilities. Jump alpha is an inclusive all-rounder, which can be used for many different therapy approaches. Rehabilitation in the literal sense wants to make skilfull and does not at all aim to maintain the respective status quo. Of course this is valid for all ages and stages of development. The preconditions are medical aids that compensate the sensorial, haptic and motoric deficits from an early age. With this, the necessary kinesthetic perceptions can be fostered within the appropriate phase of development and hence achieve a cognitive and cerebal development. Therefore, the Jump alpha is not only a substitute for missing or impaired legs, but (in the true sense) an aid for an independent and active life. Without this, the right for inclusion just could not be lived by every individual. Jump alpha can of course be adjusted to every physiognomic guideline and every degree of activity. The individual ideal position of the shoulder to the rear wheel is easily adjustable and can be changed according to the user’s development and the resulting new therapy guidelines. This results in a positive force balance and a familiar use of the aid in the long term.  As the users are able to build up their strength with Jump, because it does not overstrain due to its smoothness, this results in a high degree of motivation for the regular and therefore therapeutic efficient use of the aid. Jump can be used from early childhood on, because its small and weak users can – through the mobilisation of Jump – at least as a substitute experience the sensorial perception that their disability refuses them, but they undoubtfully need for their physiological and psychological development to be as close as possible to ‘normal’ conditions.
