Technology is always moving forward with powerchairs. Quantum Rehab UK have announced that the Quantum Edge 3.0 released to the UK market today. Quantum Rehab UK have been clear that this is their most advanced power chair yet.
When we asked about the new model, Quantum highlighted how the new model is an extension of their flagship Q6 series. The Edge 3.0 takes the technology within the Q6 Edge 2.0 and adds some industry-first features.
Tech focus as Quantum Edge 3.0 released
The first upgrades are to the innovative iLevel technology. The Quantum Edge 3.0 boasts an incredible 4.5mph speed whilst elevated at 12” at iLevel. Other improvements include the smooth-ride suspension technology (SRS) which allows for a much smoother ride. This is all complemented by LED fender lights, USB charging facilities, wheel accent colours and an extended colour range, all come as standard on the power chair.
Quantum have told us that the Edge 3.0 is the culmination of eight years of product development and improvement based on feedback from customers, clinicians and dealers. The overall user experience was central to the design and development of the latest features.
One of the benefits to the industry-first 4.5 MPH driving speed while elevated is a predominant safety feature. The iLevel function meets the need for greater speed while elevated, such as when crossing busy roads.
Alongside the launch of the chair Quantum have also released a video featuring Disability Activist and blogger, Shona Louise. Shona’s own Edge 2.0 was recently upgraded into an Edge 3.0 by Quantum prior to the launch. Shona said:
“Since having my powerchair, my life is unrecognisable compared to what it was before. ‘Life changing’ would be an understatement when I talk about this chair”.
