It was time for me to get a new power wheelchair. My dad and I traveled three hours to Duryea, Pennsylvania, which is where Quantum’s headquarters is located. There waiting for us was my new Edge® 3 Power Wheelchair with iLevel® technology.
The Color of My New Power Wheelchair
My new Edge 3 Power Wheelchair has a Red Corvette shroud. I chose that color because I wanted to change it up a bit. I usually go either for the pink or the purple shroud because those are my two favorite colors.
Features on My Edge 3 Motorized Wheelchair
There are a ton of great features on my Edge 3. First of all, the wheelchair has upgraded SRS (Smooth Ride Suspension). This provides a smooth, comfortable ride, even when I am driving across uneven terrain. The wheelchair comes with front and rear LED fender lights, which help me see and be seen when I am driving in low-light areas or after dark. My Edge 3 Motorized Wheelchair also comes with a USB charger, which means I can charge my cell phone while I’m operating my wheelchair. My power chair also has drive wheel color accents in Red Corvette to match the shroud of my chair.
Using iLevel on My Power Wheelchair
One of the best features on my new power chair is iLevel. Although I had iLevel on my previous chair, there are some differences. On my new Edge 3, I can drive up to 4.5 mph while elevated up to 12 inches. The Extra Stability Technology® also enhances safety for when I do daily living activities while elevated, such as cooking, grooming and reaching.
I am excited to share my experiences with the power chair through my social media platforms. I want to show people how my Edge 3 helps me live my life independently.
