Recently, I had the new Quantum camera installed onto my Edge® 3 Power Wheelchair. Having a wheelchair backup camera is actually really cool for a few reasons. If you’re thinking about making the investment for yourself, here’s some things you need to know.
This Backup Camera for Wheelchairs Provides Greater Visibility
The new Quantum camera can be installed anywhere on your power wheelchair. It gives you that feeling of knowing your surroundings. It’s great when you can see people walking up behind you, especially when living in a big city like Chicago. After a while, you start to get that feeling when you’re being watched. It’s nice that my backup camera has my back! Right now, a lot of places are closed because of the pandemic and I haven’t been going out much. I can’t wait for when it’s safe to be in a crowd again so I can really experience my surroundings.
The Quantum Backup Camera Helps Me See My Dog
If you are a pet owner like me, you understand the challenges of keeping track of where they are! Sometimes, my service dog Mya falls behind me. It’s great that I can look at the LCD display that is mounted to my power chair and I can see where she is. Sometimes she’ll fall behind and I just have to look down at the screen and I can see her quickly and easily. I wouldn’t want to accidentally run her over.
The camera LCD display measures 3.5 inches and attaches to your power wheelchair’s armrest or siderails. The wheelchair camera mount that the display is attached to has a gooseneck design so it’s easy to adjust. When using the wheelchair backup camera, you can choose between two different modes: you can have the camera turn on with a reverse command or you can leave it on all the time. I use it both ways. If I am home and watching something on television, I turn it off because it gets distracting. Anytime I leave the house, however, it’s on all the time.
The Quantum Camera Helps Me See at Night
Another cool thing about this backup camera for wheelchairs is that it offers infrared capabilities, which allows me to see what’s behind me in the dark. It’s great when you have to wake up in the middle of the night for something but don’t want to deal with turning the lights on and off. When the pandemic passes and it’s safe for me to go out again, I’m sure I’ll use the infrared feature a lot in the evenings when I go out to eat at restaurants or stop for a drink at the bar.
