Quantum Rehab has released the Edge 3, which the CRT company is calling its most advanced power chair to date.
The company says the Edge 3 represents eight years of product refinement based on consumer, clinician, and provider input regarding its Q6 Edge series of chairs.
The Edge 3 builds on the Edge 2, via features such as its Smooth Ride Suspension (SRS) technology; 4.5 mph iLevel option; standard fender lights; standard USB device charger; and standard drive-wheel accents corresponding with new shroud color choices.
“Innovation always begins with listening,” shared Jay Brislin, vice president of Quantum Rehab. “The latest advancements on the Edge 3 each come from what users, clinicians, and providers have wanted more of in this leading complex rehab power chair.”
Pride offered some examples of that feedback-drive product development: the SRS technology evolved from consumers asking for a softer ride in order to reduce spasticity triggers; ease use with specialty controls; and simple confer a better ride. Also, the chair’s 4.5 MPH driving speed while elevated using the optional iLevel feature helps user not only remain elevated in situations such as crossing busy streets.
“We’re proud that the Edge 3 is made here in America by our team,” adds Brislin, who added the local manufacture ensures high quality and short lead times on the custom-build chairs.
