FRESNO, Calif., January 22, 2019 — Today, Sunrise Medical announced the launch of the new QUICKIE Q700 M SEDEO PRO, our most configurable and easily adjustable mid-wheel drive power wheelchair to date. For moderate to complex physical needs, the SEDEO PRO combines a highly adjustable seat frame with a broad choice of support and positioning options. Truly modular in design, the SEDEO PRO seating system provides a new level of functionality, comfort, and design.
We know the reality is people's needs change and clients can't get new chairs every year or so. The SEDEO PRO is the ideal seating system for changing conditions. It can be easily customized to suit individual requirements and quickly adapted to changing needs. Best of all, most adjustments can be easily made using just one tool.
Choose from four backrest options and a full array of footrest options. For advanced positioning capabilities, a wide assortment of JAY® cushions and backs were optimized to fit the SEDEO PRO. A new design seamlessly integrates the WHITMYER® headrest post into the PRO back.
"The Q700 M with SEDEO PRO seating is the next generation in QUICKIE power wheelchairs. We wanted to take our seating to the next level with a highly adjustable yet aesthetically pleasing system. The SEDEO PRO seating system is like nothing else QUICKIE has ever done before," said Jeff Rogers, Senior Product Manager, Power.
The Q700 M mid-wheel drive base sets the bar for powered wheelchair technology, inside and out. With its superior drive performance your client can travel farther and feel secure over uneven terrain with our SpiderTrac® 2.0 suspension. The independent movement of all six wheels gives the Q700 M the ability to safely crawl up and down obstacles and climb curbs of up to 3". The performance springs allow for more wheels in contact with the ground at any time - even when ascending gradients of up to 9 degrees (limitations may apply). Best of all, Q700 M bases have occupied transit tie-down brackets as standard.
"Investing in new seating systems, streamlined aesthetic design and innovative mobility solutions is a priority for Sunrise Medical as we continue to honor our mission to improve people's lives. We are excited about the adjustability, comfort and heightened level of functionality of the Q700 M SEDEO PRO. Customer input was instrumental in the design and early feedback has been impressive about our most configurable mid-wheel power chair yet," said Pete Coburn, President, North American Commercial Operations.
