QM-710

QM-710

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2015:

The QM-710 is made by Sunrise Medical and up until its introduction, patients did not have a good center-wheel-drive option, one that would handle well outdoors and still climb their ramps and lifts without needing to have some momentum behind it. That is because of the SpiderTrac suspension that it has — as the front wheels raise up to meet the new terrain, the drive wheels are forced down to keep good traction. The chair has a great turning radius for indoor mobility and great outdoor capability.

Permobil

F3 & F5 Power Bases

F3 & F5 Power Bases

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2015:

I have to give it to Permobil for their new F5 and F3 platforms. The new system really is well done. I think the fact that all configurations will eventually be done off of the same platform is pretty impressive. My clients who have seen the bases are impressed by the styling as well. I can’t wait to have them try it out in the clinic.

iLevel Seat Elevation

iLevel Seat Elevation

The aptly named iLevel system enables its user to remain an active part of everyday conversations by rising to eye level (up to 10" of elevation) and driving the chair at walking speed (up to 3 mph). iLevel is part of an integrated powered seating system that simultaneously stabilizes the chair through an advanced combination of electronics and suspension. It’s available exclusively on the new Q6 Edge 2.0 power base.

R-net CJSM2

R-net CJSM2

Designed to be easy to use, the new CJSM2 features a large (3.5"), high-resolution and modern LCD screen with large, crisp graphics. A built-in light sensor automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness. Easy-to-use paddle switches handle on/off, profile, mode and speed adjustment selections. A loud speaker increases the horn volume, and a metal case protects the module from impacts.

    Micro Extremity Control

    Micro Extremity Control

    This fully proportional joystick has a built-in mode change function and requires just 18 grams of force to deflect. Pushing directly down from neutral will reset the chair to the next mode that is turned on. A new feature: Changing the slide switch on the interface will allow the client to reset the reverse direction. This will benefit those who, due to weakness, don’t have another switch site available or can’t remove their hands from the joystick.
