The Reach by Leggero is a lightweight, folding, stroller style wheelchair. Offered in three frame sizes, the Reach 12, 14, and 16 can accommodate older and larger children up to 150 lbs.(68 kg)! The Reach offers a high degree of easy adjustability for seat and back angle and many optional accessories to customize postural support and meet your child’s unique positioning needs. The Leggero Reach is appropriate for users with mild to significant physical limitations. Leggero consistently offers products that are packaged in stylish, user and caregiver friendly systems and the Reach is no exception. It is offered in several contemporary colors.
The Leggero Reach comes standard with 3 separate fixed seat pan angle adjustments. The front of the seat pan remains stationary, the back of the seat will be lower than the front by 10, 20, or 30 degrees. The Reach also comes standard with up to 7 different lockout points for back angle adjustment (recline). The number of back angle adjustments is dependent on the seat angle adjustment. Please refer to technical specifications in size chart for further details. Also standard are the Angle Adjustable Leg Rests. Angle Adjustable Leg Rests allow for elevation of the legs which adds to comfort in positioning when the recline function on the back is utilized. Leg rests can be elevated to 180 degrees (straight out and level with seat pan) and can be moved to 108 degrees of knee flexion (bending) when seat angle is adjusted. The Footplate is height adjustable. Quick Release Poly Rear Wheels have a Foot Activated Wheel Lock. Both Front Casters and Rear Wheels are made from polyurethane and will not go flat. Other family friendly features offered as standard include a height adjustable push handle, under the seat storage bag, rear anti-tip bars and a sunshade. The chair is very lightweight weighing only 27 lbs. (12kg) to 31 lbs.(14kg) depending on frame size. It folds quickly and compactly with optional postural supports in place, making it effortlessly transportable. It can also be stood up on one end in the folded position for storage.
The Leggero Reach can be purchased with a crash tested Transit Option enabling transport in a vehicle with wheelchair tie downs. The transit option includes 4 installed transportation anchors and has been tested in compliance with WC-19 standards. For more information on RESNA WC-19 please Click Here. When choosing this option, you will also be asked to choose between a Transit 5-Point Harness, available with or without pads and a Transit Sure-Lok Lap Belt. Please select the 5-Point Harness for occupants less than 50 lbs. (23 kg) and the Sure-Lok Lap Belt for occupants over 50 lbs. (23 kg). For occupants over 50 lbs. manufacturer testing met RESNA WC-19 with Sure-Lok Lap Belt only. For added safety we recommend the use of the H-Harness or Chest Vest (Available in Required Steps 3&4) to further secure trunk position.
The Reach, like all Leggero products, has been designed to meet the postural support needs of children with mild to significant physical limitations. The comfortable Planar (flat) Seat Cushion sits on top of a solid, depth adjustable seat pan. This cushion easily accommodates for growth in seat depth. The Planar (flat) Back is easily adjustable in height. There is also the option to upgrade the seat back to a height adjustable Contoured Back which can be purchased with added accessories of an Adjustable Lumbar Support and/or an H- Harness with Soft Laterals. Lateral pads integrate with the back and harness to provide postural support at the sides of the trunk. Choose H-Harness size small for frame size 12, medium for frame size 14 and large for frame size 16.
To ensure proper position and anchoring of the pelvis, there is a choice of either a 2-Point or 4-Point Padded Positioning Belt. The number of points refers to the number of places the belt is attached to the frame. A 4-Point Belt will provide greater stability than a 2-Point Belt especially for a child with significant spasticity. The extra attachment points prevent the belt from riding up onto the abdomen or twisting and moving out of position. Four points of attachment are ideal to manage anterior pelvic tilt, pelvic rotation, and thrusting. Both styles of belt are equipped with a push button release and a single, easy D-ring pull strap adjustment. The Reach also offers a choice of Headrests. The 8” Oval and Respond™ Cradle Headrests are both adjustable in height and depth. LT Planar Rectangle Headrest essentially extends the seat back for posterior support only (behind the head) and is height adjustable along with the seat back.
Optional Lateral/ Pelvic Thigh Supports are available to effectively narrow the seat width of the chair from its either 12, 14, or 16 inch maximum width and will also control excessive abduction (splaying) of the legs. These supports are adjustable in width, depth and angle. An optional Flip-Down Medial Knee Block is available to prevent crossing of the legs if this is an issue for children with adductor hip muscle (inner thigh) spasticity. Optional Ankle Supports are available to ensure proper positioning of the lower legs and feet.
To address anterior postural chest support, a variety of optional Stealth i-FIT Chest Vests are available for you to choose from above in Required Step 4. All are constructed from a unique open cell material that allows air to circulate providing a more comfortable experience for your child. Swivel buckles on the lower attaching straps support the correct angle of attachment and full-length attaching straps provide for proper positioning of the side release buckles, ensuring that the posture support maintains adjustment. The Contoured Style Chest Vest has a narrowed section over the sternum that better accommodates female users, G-tube users or those requiring a smaller support surface. The Classic Style Vest offers a large padded surface for the thoracic area. Both styles are available in either Dynamic or Structured design. The Dynamic design provides postural control, a degree of trunk movement, and a softer fit on the body. The user has movement within a limited range, encouraging return to their neutral position. The Structured design is more resistant to high tone, aiding in the maintenance of correct posture. All vests are available in XS, S, and M. Please refer to the picture carousel for measuring guides to help determine correct size selection. When an upgraded Contoured Back is chosen, there will also be the choice of the H-Harness with Soft Laterals. This is only compatible with the Contoured Back and can be found in Required Step 3 above. When choosing the H-Harness, it is not necessary to choose a Chest Vest in Required Step 4 above.
The Reach’s durability backed by a lifetime warranty and its generous growth potential guarantees many years of reliable use.
