creation, Vipamat has concentrated its efforts on improving comfort and
favouring accessibility to leisure activities for handicapped persons.
To this end Vipamat’s team has
developed, produced, manufactured, and marketed technical solutions
favouring autonomy and facilitating access to leisure activities for
persons with limited mobility.
In order to facilitate
acquisition of the equipment, Vipamat has had its products certified and
approved wherever possible.
“Beach Hippocampe” or “Multi-Activities Hippocampe,” the
first wheelchair developed by Vipamat, provides access to beaches,
swimming, participation in water-related leisure activities, and hiking,
even on snowbound trails.
The Multi-Activities Hippocampe
has received numerous awards, passed many certification tests, and is
now marketed throughout the world.
The Hippocampe Beach currently
equips more than 200 beaches in France where it is available at aid
stations. It currently equips many associations, facilitating access to
open-air activities, giving handicapped persons access to areas that
have been up to now difficult or impossible.
Pool Hippocampe, an innovative pool wheelchair, provides
access to pools easing the passage through showers and foot baths,
allowing the user to avoid transferring several times from a standard
wheelchair to another seat, and also avoiding hygienic problems related
to operating a standard wheelchair in “barefoot” areas.
Vipamat works with numerous
distributors in France and abroad.
