All-wheel independent suspension
The patented Quickie all-wheel independent suspension ensures shocks and bumps are absorbed when riding over obstacles. The result – a softer and smoother ride over rough or uneven terrain.
Ultra small turning circle
Due to it’s mid-wheel drive technology, the Salsa M power wheelchair can turn on its own axis, giving an ultra small turning circle that provides excellent indoor manoeuvrability in compact environments. In comparison, RWD and FWD chairs need to ‘swing’ around on its front or rear drive wheels, resulting in a wider turning circle.
Intuitive to drive
When navigating a FWD or RWD power wheelchair around the home, the driver must always take into account the ‘swing’ nature of the chair. The Salsa M power wheelchair, due to its tighter turning circle, is more intuitive to drive, as you don’t need to consider additional space for swinging the chair around – ideal for those who may have difficulty driving a powered wheelchair or using switches/head controls. In addition, the position of the seat directly over the drive wheel adds more weight on the drive wheel. This increases traction decreases sliding – for better all-round outdoor performance.
Elimination of pitching
Quickie anti-pitch technology helps prevent the chair from pitching forward and backwards on slopes or when navigating hills, always keeping the driver stable with the minimum of movement. …and you’re still able to climb a 70mm kerb. Download Brochure >
