Quickie has developed a dramatic new approach to tilting wheelchair technology. It's called the Quickie IRIS (Intelligent Rotation In Space).
Unlike systems that incorporate a fixed pivot-point, dual pivot-point, or linear element, the Quickie IRIS' rotational tilt design is based on the idea of rotating the seat-frame around a user's center-of-gravity. This, combined with up to 55 degrees of posterior rotation and hi-resolution adjustment, provides the ultimate in control, maneuverability, and stability.
Wheelchair does not come with backrest or cushion, as shown in picture. The backrest, head support and cushion are sold separately. Contact us to help make the selection that is right for you.
Intelligent Rotation in Space technology means the seat frame rotates around the user's center of gravity. This results in a smooth tilting motion that is easy for you to control and allows for the shortest possible wheelbase that is easy for you to maneuver. The IRIS manual wheelchair features 40 or 55 rotation ranges that can be set to achieve up to 45 or 60 of posterior rotation for superior positioning.
The IRIS's new Swing-in/Swing-out hanger design features an intuitive bi-directional release lever that follows your hand's movement. A tapered locking mechanism prevents the hanger from loosening over time. The Elevating/Articulating Legrest (pictured left) includes 2" of height adjustment to better align with the knee joint for a natural motion. Audible clicks index its position as it is elevated.
The IRIS tilt wheelchair is available with numerous options to make your job as caregiver that much easier. For cable-free tilting, choose the Foot Release Tilt Actuator. The hands-free Attendant Wheel Lock also uses a foot pedal to engage. Standard with every IRIS, the Angle Adjustable Stroller Handle can be easily adjusted to differing caregiver heights for easy handling.
