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.

ROVI X3 + Matrx Mini Seating
Key Kids’ Words: Seating and mobility combo for exploring
Motion Concepts has created a special seating and mobility combo especially for its littler customers: the ROVI X3 power base with Ultra Low Maxx power positioning and Invacare Matrx Mini Seating from Motion Concepts. The results are a small footprint thanks to a modular, easy-to-adjust system. The X3 base offers a turning radius of 20" and a base width of just 23.25" to allow kids to maneuver in kid-sized spaces. The Matrx Mini Back is contoured to provide support without restricting mobility and play, and it includes truly pediatric Mini Set hardware for optimal ease of positioning and growth.
With a unique frame design, the ROVI X3 creates more stability for pediatric users while also featuring one of the smallest bases available, at just 23.25" in overall width. Thanks to a turning radius of 20", the ROVI X3 is able to access a number of tighter environments. A powerful drivetrain and patented ARC suspension create a commanding, but nimble driving experience. The battery compartment holds two Group 34 batteries, or — if a ventilator is needed — the compartment will hold three 50-amp-hour batteries. A complimentary USB port charges kids’ electronics.

A redesigned chest bar offers greater user comfort and stability while upright. The F5 Corpus VS still retains 50° of posterior tilt, 85-180° of power recline and an optional 14" of seat elevation so consumers can access the precise positioning they need to optimally function throughout the day. The power positioning options also enable the consumer to achieve the best weight-shifting positions, while enjoying improved respiration and circulation in standing mode.
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:
Permobil F5 VS Group 4 power wheelchair with multiple power options including a standing feature: The reasoning behind it is it is very beneficial for specific patient diagnoses and very difficult to get funding sources to pay for them, so it gives us RTS’s purpose and cause.
