The Kimba Neo kid's buggy is available via your NHS Wheelchair Service



Benefits at a glance

Fast switching to the rest position

With the seat tilt mechanism, you can tip the seat to various positions: The rest position relieves strain on your child’s spine. The active position activates the muscles in the torso. Even though you can switch between the active and rest positions with ease, all original settings are retained.

Continously adjustable backrest angle

The back support adapts to the needs of the child. The knee and hip angle can be continuously adjusted in parallel as well. The angles can also be adjusted to more or less than 90 degrees.

Reclining position

The Kimba Neo rehab buggy is even suitable for sleeping, because it can be adjusted to the horizontal. This is especially handy for nappy changes.

Changing the line of vision

The seat can be easily rotated in the direction of travel or the opposite direction. This ensures a quick response in case of seizures. You always maintain close contact and can see your child.

Padding: soft, cuddly and just right for children

The new pads of the Kimba Neo not only look especially attractive, but also fulfil a therapeutic function. They stabilise your child exactly where support is needed. Thanks to the durable, washable and simultaneously extra-soft materials, your child will feel secure.

The standard padding is available in two colours: brown/beige and green/beige.

The microfibre melange padding is available in three colour combinations: blackberry/grey, blue/savannah and lime green/savannah.

What’s special about me

Soft, comfortable and secure

Comfortable and soft, the padding material supports the spine and prevents caving. Adjustable lateral supports at the hips, thighs and if necessary, the head ensure even better stability.

Always sitting

The seat adapts to the child’s therapy goals. Not only the height, width and depth of the seat can be individually adjusted, but the head and lateral supports as well. Even the seat and foot angle can be precisely adapted to your child’s needs.

Soft suspension

The soft suspension helps prevent spasms. Thanks to the suspension, the driving characteristics are smoother and the buggy is easier to steer, even on rough terrain.

Children like the Kimba Neo

We based the Kimba Neo on the prize-winning design of its predecessor, the Kimba Spring. Many users appreciate the fact that it’s not initially apparent that this is a rehab buggy which provides special support. Children appreciate the colour scheme in particular. In order to take every child’s personal preferences into account, the Kimba Neo is available in many different colours and materials.

Removing and turning the seat

The seat can be removed without tools. Just open the mount and lift the seat out. Turn it once and put it back with the child facing you.

Quickly folding up the buggy

The Kimba Neo is easy to store: Simply release the latch and fold the buggy with one hand. Then just put it in the boot. The seat stays on the mobility base.

Swivel lock

Especially useful on rough terrain: the swivel lock

Push the lock forward with your hand or foot. The caster wheel will automatically click into place. To release, just push back the swivel lock.

How to adjust the seat tilt

Turn the upper rotary handle on the back support to the right, then tilt the seat into the position that is currently needed by your child. Let go of the rotary handle to fix the position. All other settings are retained. Your child relaxes and strain on the spinal column is relieved.

How to adjust the back angle

Loosen the lower screw (turn to the left) until the back support can be moved freely. Adjust the back support as desired and retighten the screw.

Engaging the brake

The wheel lock should be engaged when putting your child in or taking them out. Step on the wheel lock arm and the Kimba Neo will remain stationary.
