Complex rehab mobility device maker Quantum Rehab has introduced the 4Front 2 power wheelchair, which features Quantum’s new Smart Traction Control (STC) and other innovations.
The STC is integrated into the Q-Logic control system and features upgraded drive performance at higher speeds (up to 6.25 miles per hour) and improved tracking. Other new features include four-pole motors and redesigned caster arms that have greater durability, reduced weight and enhanced aesthetics. Quantum’s backup camera is also an available option.
The 4Front 2 was created to implement feedback received from consumers, ATPs, clinicians and industry professionals, according to Jay Brislin, vice president of Quantum Rehab.
“Riding in the 4Front 2 is unlike any chair I have ever used,” said Christian Budney, a Quantum brand ambassador. “The 4Front 2 pushes the limit set by its predecessor beyond my expectations. The new suspension allows me to conquer terrain that I never thought possible as a wheelchair user.”
“Innovation always begins with listening,” Brislin added. “We spent a significant amount of time carefully developing the 4Front 2, using feedback from consumers and our providers. The latest advancements on the 4Front 2 come from what they wanted more of in this front-wheel-drive power chair.”
The 4Front 2 is available in HCSPCS codes, Group, 3 Single Power (K0856) and Multiple Power (K0861). It is pending PDAC code approval for Group 3 codes Solid Seat Pan (K0848), Captain’s Seating (K0849) and Single Power (K0857).
