Innovation in Motion
V6 All Terrain
The all-terrain ability of the V6 power chair can handle sandy beaches, grass or snow with ease. P&G electronics are compatible with alternative drive controls and plug-and-play power options. The V6 All Terrain is 28" wide and 41.5" long with the power to climb 6" obstacles.
The second-generation Alltrack power chair combines proven quality and performance with lighter components and a sleeker look. Innovative core technology enhances stability, maneuverability and comfort. Available in multiple configurations.
Quickie Centermount Legrest
This new power centermount legrest provides an increased range of articulation — now up to 7.5" — to maintain comfortable leg positioning during elevation and to prevent knees from bending during elevation. A span of 3" to 19" offers an optimal fit for clients with various lower-leg lengths, and left and right sides can be adjusted independently if needed. The Centermount also extends the footplate to the ground to assist with transfers. It’s compatible with the Quickie QM-7 and Pulse series of power chairs.
iLevel and TRU-Balance 3
WC19-Tested Power Seating
Quantum Rehab’s new iLevel and TRU-Balance 3 power seating systems are WC19 crash-test compliant to be used as seating in automotive vehicles. That means seating teams can offer Quantum Rehab’s power tilt and recline, articulating foot platform and seat elevation in a crash-tested package on the Q6 Edge, configured individually or together, with up to a 300-lb. weight capacity.
Amysystems is an aftermarket power seating veteran, having provided seating solutions for highly involved wheelchair users for nearly 20 years. Power modules are designed and built to ensure they can adapt to the most complex positioning requirements, including the possibility of customization to meet the individual needs of every client.
Quickie/Zippie Power Chair Options
Quickie and Zippie power chairs now have added functionality and versatility for consumers thanks to six new options for the QM-7, Pulse and ZM-310 lines. QM-7 and Pulse series chairs can now be fitted with a Power Centermount Legrest for 7.5" of articulation and 3" to 19" of independent lower-leg-length adjustment. New for the QM-7, Pulse and ZM-310 chairs are the PG Drives Advanced Color Joystick, a Retractable Joystick Mount and new Comfort Reclining Armpads. And adding Switch-It to the manufacturer’s portfolio has resulted in new Switch-It Ctrl+5 Buttons and Toggles so users can access five seating functions through either toggle switches or buttons, plus the Switch-It Dual Pro, a proportional head array with fine-tuned adjustments to provide intuitive driving experiences.
This front-wheel-drive redesign features a lower, repositioned center of gravity to greatly improve stability when navigating inclines or declines. Plus a fully independent suspension provides a comfortable, dependable ride. New Corpus Seating includes 12" seat elevation and an A/P tilt function for optional 5°, 10°, 20° or 30° of anterior tilt while maintaining 50° of posterior tilt. The Corpus system also offers 85-170° elevating legrests and 180° of power recline. The F3 is shown here without anti-tippers.
Despite its 675-lb. weight capacity, the BOSS 6.75 is still nimble indoors, with a 27" turning radius and ultra-low seat-to-floor heights. Outdoors, the 180-amp module controller and 1.75-hp inline drive supply great range (18 miles) and power (climb an 8°, 140-yard hill 20 times). The step-on footrest facilitates transfers. The BOSS 6.75 separates into six pieces for easy transport, or the chair’s tie-down system can be used to secure it within an accessible vehicle.
Golden Compass Sport GP605CC
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2015:
This is a K0823 power wheelchair that comes with a Dynamic Linx controller that has the ability to communicate wirelessly with an iPhone or iPad through the Linx access key or “dongle.” The access key plugs directly into the controller on the power wheelchair to perform programming and diagnostic tasks. I like it because I can perform instant wireless programming and diagnostics. Not only is this great for setting up the wheelchair; it is excellent for the technicians. This is a great tool for therapists, ATPs and technicians. Golden Technologies’ representation is excellent in our market, too, and for that reason and this technology, this is my Best Pick.

Anterior Tilt (F3/F5 Power Bases)
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2015:
Anterior tilt as a power seat function has had limited availability in the industry and is not currently coded under the PDAC coding system. Despite these things, anterior tilt can provide exceptional benefits to wheelchair users both functionally and physiologically. For some, just a small change in orientation anteriorly can effectively manage tone and abnormal reflexes, which can often interfere with function. In addition, small amounts of anterior tilt lowers front seat-to-floor height and can be the difference between getting under a table/desk or being limited by the lower extremities. Many power wheelchair users would be able to use anterior tilt to assist with functional reach, making the user independent with performing mobility-related ADLs including self-care, hygiene, cooking, cleaning, laundry and much more! It is amazing how much access is improved with just 20° of anterior tilt! Even further, there are individuals who need to transfer out of their power wheelchair, but just don’t have the strength to do so. The 45° stand-pivot transfer package is ideal to assist with this task — making transfers much easier and allowing them to be performed independently.
