iLevel Maximum Speed Now 3.5 MPH at 10″ of Lift

Like so many of its product innovations, Quantum Rehab®’s new iLevel® technology was the result of consumer feedback. Knowing consumers wanted to be at eye level with others and still move at walking speed, Quantum engineers developed a new power adjustable seat height solution that allowed a power chair to drive up to 3.0 mph at 10” of lift.

Now, after extensive safety testing, we have increased the maximum speed on iLevel Power Chairs from 3.0 to 3.5 mph when fully elevated. This increase was the direct result of additional consumer feedback.

The added speed will take iLevel’s life-enhancing benefits to new heights, allowing consumers to socialize and complete their activities of daily living even more easily.

Quantum Unveals iLevel Technology at International Seating Symposium

Monday, February 23, 2015

EXETER, PA – Quantum Rehab®, a Pride Mobility Products® company, is pleased to announce the unveiling of its revolutionary iLevel™ seat elevation technology at the 2015 International Seating Symposium (ISS). Designed to dramatically enhance the quality of life of those with disabilities, iLevel technology allows users to remain mobile at eye-level standing heightx while operating the power wheelchair at walking speed.

iLevel is an integrated power seating system that elevates up to 10″, while simultaneously stabilizing the power wheelchair via advanced electronics and suspension, allowing full functionality at walking speeds up to 3 mph.

“Having been a power chair user for eight years, iLevel has truly changed my life,” shares Kiel Eigen, 22, a C5 quadriplegic as the result of a football accident. “In my previous chairs, I rarely used the seat lift because I really couldn’t move anywhere. With iLevel, I have full mobility at standing heightx, so from grocery shopping to strolling the boardwalk with my girlfriend, I have independence and stature that I haven’t known since my accident. It’s doubled my functionality over a normal power chair.”

iLevel is being released exclusively on the new Q6 Edge® 2.0, an iLevel-ready power base. The Q6 Edge 2.0, with its single-stage drive train and redesigned caster arms for enhanced performance, accepts iLevel technology at the time of order or is easily retrofitted at a later date.

As an integrated, intuitive system, iLevel operates seamlessly. With the touch of a single button, the seating raises or lowers in a mere 24 seconds, including while the power wheelchair is driving, and iLevel technology automatically regulates the stability-enhanced suspension and speed, ensuring both functionality and safety.

“Consumers expressed experiencing so many limitations in existing elevating seats that we knew we had to address ‘eye-level’ mobility as a quality of life issue,” explains Scott Meuser, Chairman and CEO of Quantum and Pride. “We want to empower and delight our customers above all else. iLevel is one of those innovations that exponentially makes the world more accessible and socially inclusive for power chair users. There are so many of these types of situations where elevation at walking speed completely opens up a new world of opportunity and further equality. It’s the life-changing applications that show the significance of iLevel technology in the market at large and individual’s lives. We feel privileged to be introducing such customer-inspired technology.”

Quantum iLevel power wheelchairs will be available for demonstration at ISS, Booth 524, February 25-27, 2015, at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center, Nashville, Tenn.
