In a July 14 news announcement, Sunrise Medical said the partnership will make LUCI’s smart technology available on Sunrise’s QUICKIE line.
Larry Jackson, President of Sunrise Medical North America, said in the announcement, “From the day LUCI launched, we have been eager to find a way to give our customers access to this industry-leading technology. This partnership formed around the shared values and common goals of Sunrise Medical and LUCI, and we’re excited for the additional safety, security and independence we can now offer to power wheelchair users across the country to truly live without limits.”
The announcement added that the two companies have been collaborating for more than a year to ensure “LUCI and QUICKIE work together as seamlessly as possible.”
Jered Dean, LUCI’s co-founder and CTO, said in the announcement, “It’s been an amazing opportunity to collaborate with the brilliant team at Sunrise, and I’m really excited to show the wheelchair community all the great work we’ve done. Sunrise immediately recognized the value and safety LUCI brings to this market and has been a great partner ever since. Our engineering and innovation teams worked really hard to integrate LUCI and QUICKIE as seamlessly as possible, giving our wheelchair drivers the simplicity and freedom they deserve.”
The announcement said both Sunrise Medical and LUCI would have more announcements on technology and products soon.
