    Additional Information

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I choose if the Adaptive Star Axiom Improv Stroller is the right for me?
    The Axiom Improv stroller features a reclining seat back. The stroller seat base has a fixed 15° angle which help keep the rider’s pelvis towards the back of the seat. The seat to back  reclines back from 30° - 45° allowing the rider to rest or take a nap in the stroller comfortably. When the seat back is in its upright position, the rider has can see everything in front of them.  The reclining seat back provides increased comfort and support for children, older teens and adults who lack upper body strength and trunk control. In addition, there is an array of positioning options helps you achieve the ideal support for your child, and the patented design provides maximum comfort and durability.

    My child is autistic and does not need a stroller with a lot of support needs or that looks like a wheelchair, which special needs stroller is best?
    The Axiom Improv adaptive stroller is an ideal choice for riders with autism.  Many children with autism do not require positioning support.  The 5-point harness helps keep the child in place when they tire and helps prevent them from eloping. In addition, the side panels on the stroller seat help create a “cocoon” effect when used with the sun canopy which is ideal for children with sensory or auditory issues.
    What is the user cannot sit up on their own and has poor trunk control?
    For the user who needs upper body positioning, a shoulder harness or lateral supports may be needed provide the user with better trunk positioning. The Axiom Improv comes standard with a 5-point harness.  In additional, there also options for removable lateral support (pair), removable hip abductor, and removable seat abductor.
    I need an Axiom Improv stroller but I am short in overall height.  Will I be able to see over stroller to steer it?
    The Axiom Improv strollers have an overall height of 44" (Axiom 1.5), 46" (Axiom 2), and 48" (Axiom 3). If you are petite and the overall height will not work for you, custom modifications can be made to the stroller to shorten the overall height of the unit. Contact one of our product specialists at 877-664-4565 for more details.
    Does the Adaptive Star Improv have a shoulder harness?
    Yes, the Adaptive Star Axiom Improv stroller comes standard with a padded shoulder harness with a 3-point positioning belt with depth adjustable crotch strap, creating a 5-point safety harness.
    Can I order a sun canopy for the Axiom Improv Stroller?
    Actually the Axiom stroller comes standard with a retractable sunshade. There is an option for a rain cover to help keep your rider dry if it starts to rain.
    Is the Axiom Improv Stroller available in a transit model for use on a school bus?
    No, the Axiom Improv has not been designed to meet WC19 Wheelchair Safety and cannot be used on a bus or van with the occupant in the seat.
    How do I determine which size stroller to purchase?
    Refer to our Sizing Chart under the Specifications tab. You will need to focus on the seat depth, seat width, seat back height, seat to footrest, and weight capacity. The user's thighs should be slightly spread apart. The proper seat width measurement is decided by taking the widest point between the hips and the knees when sitting comfortably and adding about 1 to 2 inches for comfort and growth. For help with measuring and fitting the user, use our Measurement Chart or contact one of our seating specialists at 877-664-4565.
    Can I roller blade with my Axiom Improv stroller?
    We do not recommend this, it is too easy to lose control and cause possible harm to your rider and yourself.
    Is the fabric on the Axiom Improv stroller washable?
    Yes, the seat, canopy and basket are all removable and machine washable in cold water with mild detergent. Place back on your stroller to dry. Be sure to remove all seat panels before washing and replace when finished.
    If I have the user’s overall height or weight, will that be enough in determining the correct size?
    No. And the reason for this is that every user is built differently, it is always best to refer to the Sizing Chart on the Specifications tab. For example, if you have a user who is tall and skinny and doesn’t weigh much, they may still need to be in a larger chair due to their overall length. This is why we recommend completing the Measurement Chart and reviewing those measurements against the Sizing Chart. This will also help in selecting a stroller that will allow for growing room as well.
    Fitting Guide
    Adaptive Star’s adaptive strollers are designed to be more than just a convenient mobility pushchair. Order the correct size pushchair by first determining the user’s height, weight and seating measurements. Properly-fitted, Adaptive Star’s mobility push chairs will provide years of comfortable use. As your child grows, refer back to this Fitting Guide to adjust the dimensions of the chair.
    Correct seating and positioning encourages good posture, which in turn aids circulation, breathing and digestion. Please take the time to properly adjust the chair to fit the user. If the user is not correctly positioned, check the accessories section of this manual to see if one or more of our accessories would help to facilitate posture or consult your physical therapist. Improper seating can create problems with posture. Please consult your child’s physical therapist or doctor for additional guidance.

    How do I fold up the Axiom Improv stroller?

    1. Apply the foot brake to prevent the stroller from rolling.
    2. Squeeze the quick-fold lever causing the stroller to collapse in half.

    The stroller is EXTREMELY large and cumbersome. I can't lift it and it barely fits in my Ford Edge. Doesn't work for us at all. Review by Sarah / (Posted on 8/26/2013)
    We are growing into our third Adaptive Star product and cannot say enough how pleased we are with the product and customer service. The Axiom allows us to be a family-and gives our daughter great support...and we love that it looks like a normal stroller. Extra plus(es!): great storage basket underneath, adjustable footplates, comfortable 5point harness, easy to collapse and will fit into car trunk, less bulky/heavy than wheelchair, very smooth ride, turns on a dime, etc. Suggestions-grab the bug canopy too! Thanks Adaptive Star-so great to see eSpecial Needs sharing this wonderful product with more families! Keep up the great work. Review by Davis Crew / (Posted on 8/26/2013)
    We LOVE the stroller - can't wait until we can get outside and really get walking.. Thank you for finding a manufacturer who looks outside the box and makes things available for those individuals and families who still want to be active. Thanks. Review by Sharon / (Posted on 8/26/2013)
    We love this stroller! Our son is 6 and we can actually go for walks and not worry if the stroller is going to fall apart. Very well made! This is the perfect stroller for parents on the go! However it is larger than it appears. Review by Tracy / (Posted on 8/26/2013)
