Ormesa Bug

Users Overall Rating:

Wheelchair Description

The Ormesa Bug is a pushchair with postural support on a 4 wheel foldable base. Ours came with a shopping basket attached to the base and a hood with rain cover. We have a 5 point harness but it has different harness options available. It comes in different sizes ranging from approximately 2-3 and size 3-4, which is approximately from age 5-6!

Personal Opinion

We started off with the Ormesa Bug size 1-2 and really liked it. Unlike most wheelchairs with postural support, it has a hood and rain cover. We love the fact that it can be quickly folded down, as it literally just comes in 2 parts – the chair and the wheelbase, so it will fit in a larger boot.

When we moved on to the size 3-4 it’s significantly larger and heavier. It works in exactly the same way, but on a bigger scale so it’s a bit bulkier, it only just fits inside the boot of our Hyundai Tucson.

The chair easily tilts in space and has a significant recline. It does OK off road, but not brilliant! Although it’s not great on sand!

One of the things I don’t really like is the handle, it folds down for space saving and is fully adjustable but it feels quite flimsy in comparison to the weight and sturdiness of the rest of the wheelchair.
