Sunrise Unveils ZIPPIE Q300 M Mini and QUICKIE Q200 R
The ZIPPIE Q300 M Mini aims to help young patients explore their world, while the QUICKIE Q200 R gives users an easily transportable rear-wheel-drive power wheelchair.
Sunrise Medical has released two new offerings, the ZIPPIE Q300 M Mini, its latest pediatric power wheelchair, and the QUICKIE Q200 R, its new rear-wheel-drive power wheelchair.
“These two launches increase the mobility and independence from our youngest consumers to those young at heart,” said Jeff Rogers, director of Power Product Management.
The ZIPPIE Q300 M Mini
To give children the independence to safely explore a wide variety of environments, the new ZIPPIE Q300 M Mini features a patented, all-wheel independent suspension; an ultra-narrow mid-wheel drive base; a 17” turning radius; and a 17” seat-to-floor height.
“We are so excited to now offer pediatric power seating on our most compact power wheelchair base,” Rogers said.
With optional C-Me seat elevation, children can drive up to 3 MPH while elevated up to 12”, without locking out the suspension or needing to stop while transitioning. Up to 50 degrees of power tilt, with a wide range of JAY cushions and backs and WHITMYER headrests are available to address any seating needs.
Components such as footplates, leg supports, back height, seat width and seat depth can grow with the child and be adjusted individually. The ZIPPIE Mini can be personalized with seven striking accent colors or a wide variety of painted shrouds for an expressive, individual look.
The QUICKIE Q200 R
Aiming to offer easily transportable, everyday performance, the QUICKIE Q200 R is a compact rear-wheel-drive power wheelchair that does not compromise on performance, according to Rogers.
“With the Q200 R, our vision was to create a true indoor/outdoor power chair. One with super-tight indoor maneuverability and zero compromise on outdoor stability and performance,” he said. “A large drive base means difficulty when maneuvering in tight environments. Too small, and it becomes tippy with a loss of traction. In development, we tested hundreds of configurations to find the perfect combination of maneuverability and performance.”
Designed with that in mind, the QUICKIE Q200 R delivers outstanding traction, stability, and the ability to climb three-inch curbs. The 23” wide base provides great traction when traveling up ramps, and oversized 9” front casters offer better obstacle climbing than typically seen in rear-wheel drive power wheelchairs.
Starting at just 216 lbs., the Q200 R works great with hoist and boom-style vehicle lifts. With a fold-down back and removable leg and arm supports, the Q200 R will snugly fit in most SUVs or vans.
Seating options include both Rehab and Captain-style seating systems. The minimal design of the Rehab Seat alleviates weight capacity concerns when using aftermarket equipment, and traditional 1” back posts easily fit a wide range of JAY backrests. The Captain Seat provides a relaxed sitting position and features a semi-recline fold-down back, adjustable seat depth, and convertible seat pan that allows you to use your preferred cushion
