Fresno, Calif-headquartered Sunrise Medical announces enhancements to its adult Quickie and pediatric Zippie lines of IRIS tilt-in-space wheelchairs.

Quickie IRIS enhancements, according to the company in a media release, are an increased weight capacity to 300 pounds (standard version) and 400 pounds (heavy-duty version); as well as the optional JAY lower extremity support, which utilizes the same latch mechanisms as the hangers, making adjustments easier without the need for additional hardware.

Enhancements to the Quickie and Zippie IRIS include black tires, five-spoke mags, and improvements to the seat pan design, allowing for easier and quicker installation of positioning components.

The company notes that Built-4-Me options such as the angle adjustable push handles with recline and the Z-finity footrest system are now standard options for both the Quickie and Zippie IRIS.

“We are always extremely excited whenever we have the opportunity to enrich our already tried and true Quickie chairs, now even stronger,” says Jesus Ibarra, associate product manager at Sunrise Medical, in the release.
