Quickie QM-7 Enhancements

Sunrise Medical’s popular mid-wheeldrive QM-7 power chair has a series of enhancements aimed at optimizing and fine-tuning its performance for every user’s particular needs. SureTrac Encoder Motor Technology (pictured) automatically corrects small deviations in its user’s driving, resulting in a straighter ride that requires fewer input corrections and overall, a more comfortable ride. SureTrac’s self-compensating drive control accounts for resistance at each of the QM-7’s wheels and sends appropriate amperage to each motor. That acts to neutralize different terrains such as carpet, hardwood floors and slopes. The QM-7 also is compatible with an array of electronics options, including PG Drives’ joystick with built-in Bluetooth and infrared controls; an Advanced Ctrl+5 toggles and buttons (also pictured, to conveniently access up to five seating functions, and with a handy USB port that can charge mobile devices) and Switch-It’s Dual Pro proportional head array.

Permobil

M3 Corpus

M3 Corpus

Permobil fans might have seen this coming when the manufacturer’s front-wheel-drive F3 and F5 power bases launched last year, and at the International Seating Symposium in March, the company made its new mid-wheel-drive power base official. The M3 has some familiar characteristics to those who know the F3/F5 series, but the new arrival has plenty more to boast about. Consider the added stability via a unique suspension geometry and linear spring design, plus a patent-pending FlexLink suspension for advanced vibration reduction. These additions enable the M3 to achieve full suspension at any seat elevation (up to 12" of elevation available as an option). When the seat is elevated, the seating system moves rearward 3.5" to optimize the M3’s stability — and the M3 can drive up to 3.2 mph at that 12" elevated height. The Corpus seating system also offers 0-50° posterior tilt and options of 5°, 10° or 20° of anterior tilt to promote what Permobil is calling the Active Reach positions that can facilitate activities and transfers. The M3 Corpus has a 300-lb. weight capacity, a maximum speed of 6 mph, seat-to-floor heights starting at 17.5", and 85-120° (manual) or 85-180° (power) recline.

M3

M3

Permobil’s new mid-wheel-drive power base, launching at ISS, will feel familiar to those who know the manufacturer’s front-wheel-drive F3 and F5. The M3 offers 50° of posterior tilt that’s twice as fast as its predecessor, and has 12" of seat elevation that’s 50 percent faster. But the M3 also offers anterior tilt to facilitate a critical function that Permobil calls Active Reach, used in everyday situations ranging from leaning forward during mealtimes to facilitating transfers. Consumers who like the maneuverability of mid-wheel drive can now enjoy even greater positioning options.
