Barend Van Der Poll –
The Hippocampe Beach and All Terrain wheelchair allows us to take our son to amazing places, his wheelchair cannot go. He gets to experience nature and have fun, without us as parents having to carry him. The hippocampe is great as it can be dismantled very quickly and put into the carry bag. When you get to your destination it takes only 5 mins to assemble and off you go. I have also needed to replace some additional parts and Vipamat assisted me in finding a local supplier (in my home town !!!) who had the parts for me in a very short time.
