The ultra-compact indoor/outdoor entry-level powerchair.
QUICKIE Q100 R uses an innovative testing method called SMART base technology. This helped us understand how geometry changes to a drive base can affect performance, creating a precision-measured TRUE indoor/outdoor powerchair.
From SMART base development, the Q100 R powerchair by Sunrise Medical boasts an ultra-small footprint of 540 mm wide and 1010 mm long, with a tiny 1600 mm turning circle, so navigating even the tightest of spaces is a breeze.
Going out? The QUICKIE Q100 R provides a stable ride on urban roads and paths, ideal for those day trips out.
Unbelievably light at 95 kg, the Q100 R is also easy to hoist in and out of your car.
SMART Base Technology
All indoor/outdoor powered wheelchairs face the same problem… We solved it with SMART BASE Technology.
Our vision was to create a TRUE indoor/outdoor powerchair with super-tight indoor manoeuvrability and no compromises on outdoor stability and performance. But how do you design such a finely balanced powerchair?
A large drive-base means difficulty when manoeuvring in tight environments. Too small, and it becomes tippy with a loss of traction. With SMART Base Technology, we were able to test 100‘s configurations to find the perfect combination.
The result is the QUICKIE SALSA Q100 R. A legitimately compact entry-level powerchair delivers the very best traction, stability and even the ability to climb kerbs of up to 100 mm (4“).
Never an up-hill-struggle
Indoor/outdoor powerchairs don‘t traditionally cope well with steep gradients, which we solved with SMART Base Technology. Precision-testing determined that a 1010 mm base length provides the best stability to prevent tipping and keep you safe – even when travelling up hills of 6 degrees.
SMART base technology helped calculate the dimensions for a compact base and the ideal seated position to maximise traction between the drive-wheel and the ground. Combined with the Q100 R drive-wheel suspension, you‘ll enjoy the safe, smooth and responsive ride that‘s normally expected from a larger powerchair.
