Complex rehab wheelchair maker Quantum Rehab has unveiled its TRU-Balance 4 Power Positioning System with anterior tilt, which provides a choice of 10, 20, or 30 degrees of power anterior tilt.
Anterior tilt helps users lean forward, which can help them perform activities of daily living, such as accessing sinks, grooming, reaching items in cupboards, and doing laundry.
TRU-Balance 4 also includes up to eight customizable memory seating positions. This feature uses feedback to recognize positioning and recalls the saved position of all actuators. It offers the choice of sequential or synced movement for each seat function.
Only available on TRU-Balance 4 Power Positioning, a dual actuator Articulating Foot Platform (AFP) lowers to assist with transfers. The dual actuator AFP has an articulation range of 0-7.25 inches and an elevation range of 85-165 degrees.
TRU-Balance 4 is available on Quantum’s Stretto, Edge 3, and 4Front 2 power chairs. It requires the selection of power adjustable seat height, power anterior tilt, power posterior tilt, power recline, and a dual actuator power articulating foot platform.
“There is lots of excitement around our launch of TRU-Balance 4, especially power anterior tilt because it can help users with functional activities,” said Jay Brislin, vice president of Quantum Rehab. “TRU-Balance 4 also offers eight customizable memory seating positions, whereas other manufacturers have preset positions. This makes TRU-Balance 4 seating truly customizable to serve patients with a variety of needs.”
