The Power Centermount Legrest, available on the Quickie QM-7 and Pulse Series wheelchairs, offers 7.5 inches of articulation for positioning during elevation, 3 to 19 inches of independent lower leg length adjustment, and the capability of extending the footplate all the way to the ground.

The QM-7, Pulse, and Zippie ZM-310 feature the following new options: PG Drives Advanced Color Joystick, with a large, 3.5-inch color display, paddle switches that control the on/off function and chair speed, and programmable shortcuts; a Retractable Joystick Mount, which is adjustable from -135° to +135° to provide a comfortable driving position for users whose hands turn inward/outward, and can also be retracted inward or outward; and Comfort Reclining Armpads, which are available in 2-inch and 4-inch widths and provide a softer, more comfortable surface, the release continues.

Other new options include: Switch-It Ctrl+5 Buttons and Toggles, which allow the user to access five seating functions through either toggle switches or buttons, include a USB port, and may also be mounted in various locations on the wheelchair; and the Switch-It Dual Pro head array, which has fine-tuned adjustments and customizations to provide the user an easy-to-learn, precise, and intuitive driving experience.

“We are proud to bring these latest enhancements to our growing portfolio of Quickie Power Wheelchairs,” states Pete Coburn, president, US Commercial Operations, Sunrise Medical, in the release.

“Each of these options are a direct result of user and clinician feedback, and will enable us to continue offering best-in-class products for the clients we serve,” he adds.
