Sunrise Medical’s newly launched Q300 M Mini “will go where other power chairs can’t”
Mobility giant Sunrise Medical has officially introduced its “narrowest power wheelchair” yet – the Q300 M Mini power wheelchair – which is designed to navigate through crowded and compact spaces.
The mid-wheel-drive chair “will go where other power chairs can’t”, according to Sunrise, with its small 17-inch turning radius (without footplates) enabling it to turn on the spot. In addition to a small turning radius, the Q300 M Mini has a turning circle of just 33.7 inches to allow it to turn around efficiently in close spaces, such as lifts.
With a base weight of 111 pounds, the Q300 M Mini is “light enough to be used with most lifts,” states Sunrisel. Powered by a strong Group 22 – 50 Ah battery, its low seat-to-floor height starts at 16.5 inches to maximize the chair’s ability to fit under tables and to fit into the driver’s seats of wheelchair-accessible vehicles.
Seating options include the simple and adjustable SEDEO Lite or the highly configurable SEDEO Pro seating systems.
The minimalist design of SEDEO Lite makes it ideal for many hitch-mounted lifts, while the SEDEO Pro provides flexibility with a wide range of cushions and positioning options and accessories.
Both systems offer the C-Me seat elevation option, which provides up to 12 inches of elevation while the chair is driving up to three miles per hour.
Jeff Rogers, Director of Power Product Management at Sunrise Medical, said, “The Q300 M Mini is the perfect power chair for anyone who lives in a small place or needs to get around in tight areas, like their kitchen.
“It packs a lot of features found on much larger chairs into a small package. The 17-inch turning radius will really make the difference for many clients.”
Sunrise has also launched JAY Swing-Away Thoracic Laterals, which the manufacturer says provide improved locking strength in a slim profile. Two pivot points on the laterals provide more than 100 millimetres of adjustment.
