Quantum Rehab has achieved a rare-air statistic with its iLevel adjustable seat height system.
In a Nov. 20 announcement, the complex rehab power wheelchair manufacturer said 30,000 iLevel systems are now in use. The system, which made its debut in 2015, is capable of providing 12 inches of power seat elevation and can be driven at 4.5 mph at that height.
From its beginning, iLevel has benefitted from strong educational and advocacy support. Quantum Rehab worked hard to make consumers, providers, clinicians and funding sources aware of the many ways that adjustable seat height can facilitate mobility-related activities of daily living, including transferring and tasks that require reaching.
Jay Brislin, VP of Quantum Rehab, said in the announcement, “We are very excited and humbled to see the continued success of iLevel technology throughout the industry. iLevel has proven to provide clients with higher levels of independence throughout their daily lives, and this is only the beginning.”
iLevel will be available on Quantum Rehab’s new the Stretto power chair, launching in January.
“With the continued client success stories we have seen with iLevel, it was only appropriate to incorporate this technology into our next new exciting Group 3 product launch, the Edge 3 Stretto,” Brislin said. “The Edge 3 Stretto is designed to allow for all power positioning functions in a much narrower footprint than most Group 3 product offerings to not only solve the needs of adult clients, but to reach milestones never achieved before for the pediatric power population.
“The narrow footprint of the Edge 3 Stretto combined with the advanced performance of iLevel will provide pediatric clients the ability to navigate within their environment and reach new heights in functional mobility that they haven’t been able to achieve before.”
