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.

computers, Android tablets, iPhones, iPads
and other smart devices, right from the
joystick module. Infrared communication is
widely used to remotely control household
appliances and some home-automation
equipment to give users more environmental
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.
TRU-Balance 3 with iLevel
Consumer and clinician inspired,
TRU-Balance 3 power positioning systems
are designed to provide the ultimate in
complex rehab seating and ADL functionality,
including iLevel elevation with Extra
Stability Technology on the Q6 Edge 2.0,
Q6 Edge Z and Q6 Edge HD power bases.
Featuring modular tilt, recline, elevation and
an articulating foot platform, TRU-Balance
3 offers easy tailoring of seat depth, width,
back height, multi-axis armrests and center-of-gravity adjustment.
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
