Quantum Rehab has introduced two new brand ambassadors.
In an Oct. 9 news announcement, the manufacturer welcomed Elizabeth McCormick and Keith Russell, chosen as the newest Q Roll Model winners. During the two-month entry period, Quantum said it received nearly 100 entries from across the United States.
Quantum Brand Ambassador Coordinator Stephanie Woodward said in the announcement, “We’re excited to welcome new members to our robust team! Liz and Keith are both fun, relatable, and down-to-earth people, but they lead such different lives. Their experiences and perspectives are so unique. We can’t wait to see how each of them shares how iLevel [powered seat elevation] helps them to live their best lives!”
The two ambassadors will each receive a three-month paid Q Roll Model agreement and a new Quantum Rehab power wheelchair.
McCormick, who has cerebral palsy, said in the announcement that she began using a power chair more often once she began college. She graduated SUNY Albany with a Master of Public Administration degree in 2022 and currently works as a policy analyst to advocate for people with disabilities.
Russell was born with a spinal cord disability that severely limits his walking strength and balance. He lives in Lebanon, Mo., and works as a real estate agent. He also has a drone pilot license and enjoys building and fabricating “all things mechanical,” the announcement said.
The new ambassadors will use social media posts and blogs to share their experiences while using power chairs with iLevel technology. Quantum Rehab has added 10 ambassadors to its team during the three Q Roll Model contests to date, held in 2019, 2021, and 2023.
“I feel so grateful and lucky to have this opportunity,” McCormick said in the announcement. “I am excited to have a new wheelchair that works for my life and to step out of my comfort zone and work with Quantum Rehab!”
Russell said, “iLevel changes things from my level that I’ve lived my life at. With iLevel, the possibilities are endless. It’s what dreams are made of.”
