FRESNO, Calif., May 14, 2019 — Today, Sunrise Medical announced the launch of the new QUICKIE® Q500® M SEDEO® PRO™, a high performance power wheelchair in a proven, compact design. This highly anticipated model results from years of experience with market-leading mid-wheel drive bases, seating, and advances electronics. The Q500 M is the evolution of an industry favorite, the QUICKIE Pulse®. Its compact base allows for one of the smallest foorprints and a tight turning radius while being extremely intuitive to drive and control. With a new, modern look, the Q500 M SEDEO PRO offers the same proven performance and reliability clients deserve as they go about their day.
The QUICKIE Q500® M 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. 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 made easily 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 Q500 M also offers a diverse selection of armrests, armpads, leg rests, seat and back cushions, headrests, and positioning accessories, allowing for great flexibility to adapt to individual client needs.
The seating system and extensive seating options aren't the only impressive attributes of the Q500 M SEDEO PRO. Many of the same features available on the Q700 M are also available on the Q500 M such as innovative controls, an advanced suspension system, and occupied transit tie-down brackets as standard. The Q500 M's base also features high torque 4-pole motors, powering speeds of up to 6 mph and with Group 34 batteries clients can maximize their range up to 14 miles.
"Since the launch of the SEDEO PRO seating system earlier this year it only made sense to put this great new seating system on the next generation of the Pulse, the Q500 M! We wanted to offer our clinicians and their customers the best of both worlds by combining a compact and extremely reliable base with our PRO seating system which easily adapts to fit the needs of customers, not only at the time of delivery but over time as well," said Jeff Rogers, Senior Product Manager, Power Wheelchairs.
