Madonna Long: Back Up is the Way to Go

Living in Wyoming has been amazing, although the weather at times can be a bit treacherous. My Edge® 3 Power Wheelchair takes it all in stride and helps get me on my way safely. Last week, I went down to Salt Lake City to see my provider and they installed my new Quantum® backup camera.

I absolutely love this motorized backup camera. I think my cat does too. I’ve noticed that the clarity on the wheelchair backup camera is amazing. I really like the fact that when I’m in the grocery store and I turn on the backup camera, I can see anybody who is around me. I think this is an amazing safety feature that every power wheelchair user should have.  

Benefits of a Motorized Backup Camera

It seems like technology is advancing quickly when it comes to complex rehab. I really hope that other power wheelchair users are able to take advantage of these new technologies. This is especially important for people that are on the go in busy places. I think the motorized backup camera is an essential feature to have on a wheelchair.

When I get into my wheelchair-accessible van, I use my wheelchair backup camera to maneuver into the small space behind me, driving my power chair into the correct position to transfer to my driver’s seat. I don’t have to worry about backing into the back seat of my van and damaging it. For people who use public transit, the Quantum backup camera would help them maneuver into a safe position on buses or even back out of a taxicab.

One of the things I love about Quantum is that they’re always on the edge of new technology to improve the lives of people with disabilities. My new backup camera is an important addition to my power wheelchair.
