Why You Need a Wheelchair Backup Camera

The new wheelchair backup camera from Quantum® is the must-have power wheelchair accessory for the year 2021. Although there are tons of power wheelchair accessories on the market, the new Quantum camera has so many uses in a ton of different ways. It’s easily mounted onto Quantum motorized wheelchairs, with multiple mounting options available. Do you need more convincing? Here are five reasons why you need to get the backup camera from Quantum.

The New Quantum Camera Promotes Safety

It’s one camera with many uses! The backup camera promotes safety with a rear viewing angle of 170 degrees. The backup camera is available exclusively on Q-Logic 3, although it will be available on NE and NE+ controllers in the future. For example, if you have the Edge 3 Stretto narrow motorized wheelchair and operate it using Q-Logic 3 electronics, your chair is compatible with the camera.

Provides Greater Visibility

When driving your narrow motorized wheelchair forward, you can see everything in front of you, including cars, cyclists and pedestrians. Driving in reverse is not as simple because we don’t have eyes in the back of our head! The power wheelchair backup camera allows a consumer to choose between two modes: the camera is on at all times or the camera turns on with a reverse command. No matter which mode you choose, you’ll enjoy better visibility when backing up.

Takes the Guesswork Out of Reversing

In addition to increased visibility, a wheelchair backup camera is perfect for individuals who have difficulty with or are unable to turn their head or neck to see what’s behind them. With the Quantum backup camera, you can mount the display anywhere so it’s visible as you drive. The 3.5-inch LCD display  allows you to mount it off your power chair’s armrest or side rails.

Infrared Capabilities Help You See in Low-Light Areas

In the winter months, the sun sets much earlier, yet we all still have appointments to go to or errands to run. If you have a service dog like Alison Chancellor, you understand that dogs still need to be walked even after the sun goes down. As a native of St. Louis, Alison knows the importance of staying safe in a big city. She shares how the new Quantum camera and the infrared capabilities allow her to see behind her at night, giving her peace of mind.

See Pets and Children with the Wheelchair Backup Camera

When driving your power wheelchair within your home, it helps to see what is behind you when backing up, especially in smaller areas. The LCD display, which is equipped with a protective case to prevent damage, can help you see furniture, walls, door frames, pets and children when reversing.
