Sunrise Medical’s vision was to create a true indoor/outdoor powerchair with super-tight indoor manoeuvrability and no compromises on outdoor stability and performance. The result is the Quickie Salsa Q100R. A legitimately compact entry-level powerchair that delivers the very-best traction, stability and even the ability to climb kerbs of up to 100mm (4”).
Whether it’s around the home, the local café or shopping mall, the Q100R is in-touch with its environment inside and out. With an ultra-slim base and tiny turning circle, even the smallest place will feel big.
Fed up of clipping the side of your powered wheelchair or scratching the paintwork when squeezing through a tight doorway? The Q100R ultra-slim base width of 540mm can go where other indoor/outdoor powerchairs won’t fit – so even negotiating narrow paths or packed tables at your favourite café will be a breeze.
Precision measured in length at just 1010mm long, the Q100R will conveniently fit in and out of through-floor lifts and other short spaces without the traditional sacrifice of stability.
Get out of any tight spots with its ultra-compact turning circle. Effortlessly turn in narrow hallways, kitchens and other restricted spaces without the need for complicated manoeuvres.
The legrests and controller can also swing outwards, so the Q100R can get even close to objects like tables and chairs for an easier transfer in or out of your powerchair.
Indoor/outdoor powerchairs don’t traditionally cope well with steep gradients – a problem solved with Smart Base Technology. Precision-testing determined that a 101mm base-length provides the best stability to prevent tipping and keep you safe- even when travelling up hills of 6 degrees.
SMART base technology helped to calculate not only the dimensions for a compact base but also the ideal seated position for maximising traction between the drive-wheel and the ground. Combined with the Q100R drive-wheel suspension you’ll enjoy the kind of safe, smooth and responsive ride that’s normally expected from a larger powerchair.
Need a little assistance climbing obstacles? The Q100R’s low-impact kerb climbing will tackle kerbs of up to 100mm (4”) at low speed and even from a standing-start (so your seated position will be maintained whilst transitioning up the kerb).
Powered by 55ah batteries, the Q100R electric wheelchair loves a spin around town and longer city trips. With the stamina to go up to 31km (19 miles) on a single charge you’ll have plenty of time to stop off for other adventures along the way.
Primed for public transport the intuitive Q100R is so compact and manoeuvrable, getting on and off trams, buses and trains is a breeze. Prefer to travel by car? The Q100R can be compactly stored in the boot or used as a seat while travelling.
And the SALSA Q100 R‘s seating has been designed to fit you. With plenty of settings and a 5-strap tension adjustable back to meet postural requirements, take comfort in knowing that if your needs change, so can your seat.
