Sunrise Medical has launched the Q300 M-Mini, a new addition to the company’s Q-Series family.
Developed from the Salsa M2 Mini and made in the UK, Sunrise says the new product part of its next-generation of powerchairs.
Sunrise has already launched the product to a number of dealers at two events across the country, one in the North and one in the South.
AMP attending the event at Crewe Hall last week and feedback from dealers showed a positivity towards the new product and what it can offer to the end-user.
Designers behind the product say the Q300 M Mini “sets the benchmark for the world’s smallest, market leading, TRUE mid-wheel drive powerchairs of the new decade.”
Explaining how it got to the new product, Sunrise detailed how by talking to customers and listening to feedback and worked on resolving any challenges.
It has a 52cm wide base and a 112cm turning circle aimed at allowing for easy manoeuvrability inside and outside.
It has a base length of 106cm and weighs 103kg.
The Q300 M Mini has also incorporated a 30cm powered lift as well as a redesigned seat to floor height.
The option of 14” drive wheels is also offered for greater outdoor traction, empowering users to climb 3”-4” kerbs.
Additionally, Sunrise has made the option of 4-pole motors available, plus an added 35% in battery power in super-charged 56Ah batteries allowing for a 22.5 mile range on a single charge.
When it comes to wheelchair adapted vehicles, Sunrise went on to detail how for extra peace of mind, the Q300 M Mini is crash tested, passed with 4-Point Tie down system, Dahl Docking and the lower floor to seat height, allowing users to drive straight under the steering wheel.
A narrow and lightweight base also makes it easy for hoisting in and out of vehicles.
Ten custom shrouds with a variety of accent colours are also available. The Q300 M Mini comes with 28 standard style configurations and over 98 shroud configurations to choose from.
In a move to make the chair more comfortable, the Sedeo Lite seating system is used while a 30 degree tilt for pressure relief is also included.
