The only measurement that varies between the Hippocampe sizes is the distance between the front of the seat canvas and the footwell. The size you need is therefore determined by the length of your legs and how flexible you are.

All our Hippocampes are supplied with an adjustable height backrest, push handle, towrope and a transport bag which the Hippo folds into.

Additional Options

More support can be added to a basic Hippocampe to enable those with greater postural needs to experience the beach and countryside.  The addition of armrests, infil panels, a headrest and a harness can give extra support and security.  A vacuum beanbag support can also be used for increased support and stability within the chair.  


Other accessories include brakes, balloon wheels for soft sand,fron ski and rear skis for the snow, backrest bag ....

A low profile Supracor cushion makes an excellent addition to any Hippocampe, giving improved pelvic stabilty and pressure relief.
