I get many questions from curious people about my Edge 3 Stretto® Narrow Wheelchair with iLevel®. People ask how fast my wheelchair goes or how high it rises. I have heard it all! I hope to answer some of those questions in this blog.
How fast does my power wheelchair go?
I normally answer people rather easily but sometimes it can get repetitive. I tell the people that it goes around 6.25 mph when I’m in the seated position. When I am elevated at iLevel, the maximum speed is 3.5 mph. I tell people about my personal experiences of how I went over the average speed by going downhill when I was younger and more adventurous.
Do I sleep in my power wheelchair?
This one is pretty interesting to me and once again, not hard to answer. I personally don’t sleep in my wheelchair because I feel my bed is more comfortable. Questions like these show how curious people are about wheelchairs.
How high can my iLevel go?
I always get this question when I am out and about at either a restaurant or in the community. One of my favorite local restaurants has high-top tables. Every time we go, we sit at one of the higher tables, which allows me to show off the iLevel feature. I tell people that my wheelchair lifts me up 12 inches and explain how it gives me a new sense of independence.
Can my Stretto narrow wheelchair go off road or onto different surfaces?
Many times, I answer this question by showing people what my Stretto can handle. I drive in the grass and it surprises people to see me do it. I like to see the looks on their faces when I demonstrate what my wheelchair can do. The Stretto has independent SRS (Smooth Ride Suspension), which absorbs any bumps I drive over, giving me a smooth and comfortable ride.
Does my wheelchair have a horn?
This is my favorite question! When people ask me, I simply press the horn button. Most of the time, it makes the person jump! The horn can be loud the first time you hear it. It amazes people.
I love it when people ask questions! and it allows me to show off my amazing Stretto narrow wheelchair. The average person has many questions, especially when they see a state-of-the-art wheelchair like the Stretto. Quantum wheelchairs look futuristic and immediately capture the attention of almost everyone. I personally feel that these types of questions are good and can help people learn more about the product. I have heard many questions and I look forward to what other people ask in the future.
