An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:
The integrated mouse/Bluetooth module allows mounting to the rear, which allows alternate drive clients to interact with their environment when funding sources are limited.

Power Anterior Tilt
Forward reach made easier: A separate power module provides up to 30° of anterior tilt, while maintaining full posterior tilt abilities. The module is designed for use with Motion Concepts’ UltraLow Maxx Power Positioning system and is especially effective with the elevating module to support daily activities, including self or assisted transfers and visual field orientation. The rear of the entire system (i.e., tilt or tilt/recline) is raised. A Synchronized Option for Center Mount Front Rigging with Anterior Tilt maintains the leg angle as the client anteriorly tilts. Seat-to-floor heights as low as 18" are possible. Weight capacity is 250 lbs.

4Front Power Chair
Quantum Rehab’s first front-wheel-drive power chair is the 4Front, featuring SRS (Smooth Ride Suspension). Designed to address real-world needs, 4Front focuses on ride quality, driveability and safety; its suspension is based on leading automotive suspension systems. SRS uses four coilover gas-charged shocks for an ultra-smooth ride. The geometry in which the shocks are integrated into the power base allows independent wheel travel plus power base stabilization. The result: up to 10" of safe seat elevation while 4Front travels at 3.2 mph. 4Front delivers a smooth ride that lessens the bumps and jarring that can cause positional problems or increased tone and spasticity for complex rehab power chair users.
