The Best Aspects of the M3 that Help Create a Smooth Ride
The designers of today’s cutting edge power wheelchairs have used a combination of their extensive knowledge, helpful medical research and meticulous attention to detail in the manufacturing of these chairs to create chairs that let users do more than ever before. Here are some of the most positive aspects that have affected the usefulness of these technologically advanced wheelchairs:
– FlexLink Suspension – A suspension that gives users incomparable stability and superior comfort, no matter how many hours in a day the chair is used. Innovation is present in the forms of spring design with spring arms that let this chair realize its full suspension at any speed, at any position of the seat, or at any elevation. The ways this uniquely designed suspension is most effective is in keeping your body in a better position, improving the effectiveness of your driving maneuvers and reducing the fatigue that sometimes goes along with driving in challenging conditions
– Ergonomically Designed Corpus Seating System – This is a seat that is specially designed for comfort by following the specific contours of the body for a truly custom fit. The depth and width adjustments of this seat take into account your unique measurements, along with other nice touches like a formed aluminum shell so you can use any type of after-market backrest easily with this chair, as it provides the ability to adjust. In addition, with the Corpus Seating System cushion you can order seat covers in either leatherette or black mesh for extra comfort.
– ActiveReach Technology – Gives you the ability to effortlessly raise the seat by a full 12 to 14 inches, giving you valuable access to everything you need to reach. This technology also gives you a full 20 degrees of forward tilt, allowing you extra reach into harder to reach areas like high cabinets. Being able to rise 12 or 14 inches lets you sit with others at pub style tables, reach dry erase boards and chalkboards in school, and reach desired items in store settings without needing assistance. This gives you exceptional feelings of confidence and freedom knowing that you can do everything you need to do unassisted
– Special Caster Glide Feature – The design of these innovative casters let you experience having more confidence during certain maneuvers like navigating tight spaces, driving at lower speeds, or even while you’re busy using other driver controls. You’ll be impressed by the flutter-free dampening device that needs no adjustment on your part, along with the 7-inch caster design. Casters provide total clearance, letting you go more easily in any direction
Permobil has thoughtfully designed this advanced power wheelchair to give you an exceptionally well performing power chair featuring incomparable mid-wheel drive for easier use. These chairs were specially created to give you maximum freedom for more ability to live a fuller life. Providing a greater sense of independence is at the forefront of its avant-garde design.
Specialized Facets of ActiveReach Technology
You can get an extra package with elevating wheelchairs that allow you to tilt to angles of 30 to 45 degrees with a special addition called the Anterior Tilt Package, which gives you even more options. There are some important things to know about reaching these angles, however. Some of your desired tasks may still be limited, due to being in a sideways position or the fact that your knees may not be able to stay under a tabletop. Here are some things to know about each degree of reach:
– At 10 Degrees – Most often used for simply reaching a difficult to reach item. With a 10 degree angle, you’re able to keep your line of sight and go beyond the fixed hip angles
– At 20 to 45 Degrees – Leg-rest and backrest angles that are programmable help to keep you stable as you rise to a completely tilted position. There is also a specially designed knee block that can be removed to help you stay in the ideal position
– At 30 to 45 Degrees – It’s best to position the foot plates to the ground level so you won’t need to flip up the foot plates when you’re transferring from the wheelchair for extra safety
Another nice feature with the ActiveReach Technology is that the 12 to 14 inch seat elevating option is realized two times faster than ever before, due to specialized actuators that give you this benefit. You’re not going to be waiting for your seat to rise, since it happens quickly. When you pair the seat elevating benefits with angles of reach ranging from 10 degrees to 45 degrees, you gain more freedom to reach new heights.
Stylish Options Add to the Attraction
When you choose the M3 power wheelchair, you’ll find that you’ve got some very attractive options. Choose from colors like galactic green, bright pink, orange, blue, black and Fuschia, to fully express your unique personality.
