Description

The Quickie® Q7 with 7000 Series Aluminum and ShapeLoc Technology is shifting the axis of today's mobility world creating the ultimate in a light-weight wheelchair. Packed with more performance and lifestyle options than ever, the Q7's leading design and exciting new colors will have everyone saying, "I Want Q7!" Q7...lighter weight, lighter price.

The Q7 with rear wheels and wheel locks can be configured as low as 14 lbs! This feat is accomplished using 7000 Series Aluminum and ShapeLoc technology, which together increase overall rigidity without compromising weight. In addition, every element on the chair has been carefully analyzed and evaluated to eliminate any excess weight.

ShapeLoc Technology Heat Treated aerospace 7000 series aluminum is the key to the Quickie Q7's remarkably low weight. Using a special post heat-treatment process, ShapeLoc technology unlocks the potential of this traditionally difficult alloy. The result is a remarkable tubing that's lighter than titanium, more rigid, and less expensive.

Unparalleled Performance To maximize performance, ovalized tubing is used in the frame, axle plate, and caster housing. Its superior vertical strength decreases frame flex and increases overall rigidity. In addition, new caster setting options for small caster wheels make it possible to place casters further away from the center of gravity, which in turn makes the chair easier to maneuver.

Unique Style With a sleek, ultra modern design, the Quickie Q7 lives up to Quickie's reputation for cutting edge design and style. The wide range of functional and contemporary options optimize your style. Over 25 frame colors and 6 hardware colors can be blended into hundreds of possible custom combinations.

It's important for the wheelchair to be fitted properly and be as narrow as possible while maintaining comfort and safety.

This will insure the best performance for navigating tight areas both inside the home as well out in public spaces.

A wheelchair that is too narrow or too wide can cause discomfort. When too narrow, a wheelchair can become restrictive and increase the likelihood of pressure sores, while when it's too wide, becomes more difficult to push due to the angle of the arms from the shoulders to the wheels.

To determine the necessary seat width, measure the rider's widest area of the body and add one inch. This will allow for optimum seat width while maintaining ideal usability, comfort and safety.

Front seat height is measured from the front of the seat to the floor.
Standard seat to floor height is 19.5". Hemi height (a lower seat) is usually 17.5

 

To determine the appropriate seat height, measure from the bend of the knee to the bottom of the foot. Subtract the height of the seat cushion if one is being used. If the wheelchair is not being self propelled by the feet, also add about 2 inches to allow for foot clearance.

Rear seat height is measured from the back of the seat to the floor.

A chair's rear seat-to-floor height is most commonly set at a height 1" lower than the front seat height.

The rear of the seat is generally set at lower height than the front of the seat to prevent sliding forward.

Frame angle refers to the front of the wheelchair's frame and it's angle to the floor.

80° is the industry standard and most popular configuration. Keep in mind, for every 5° you add/subtract you are adding/subtracting 3/4" to the wheelchair's overall frame length. The longer the frame length, the more stability and the shorter the frame length, the less stable your wheelchair will feel.

Armrests are mostly a matter of personal choice, but most often users without much mobility appreciate armrests to help alleviate shoulder and back stress. Armrests also provide additional stability for users with limited upper body balance and are helpful when navigating in and out of the wheelchair. Additionally, armrests allow users the ability to do pushups, helping relieve pressure as well as protecting clothing from the wheels.

When armrests are not fitted properly the wheelchair can become more difficult to push. Not all armrests are adjustable. Height should be fitted to allow the forearm to rest fully on the armrest without pushing up on the shoulders. For users who sit at a table or desk, swing-away armrest can beneficial.

There are four basic types of armrests:
1. Full length, fixed height (entire armrest is padded with a non-adjustable height)

2. Full length, adjustable height (entire armrest is padded with various height seetings)

3. Desk length, fixed height (partial armrest is padded for easier access with tables, non-adjustable height)

4. Desk length, adjustable height (partial armrest is padded for easier access with tables, various height seetings)

Armrest that can be easily removed or flip up and down gives users the choice of when to use the armrests.

While not all footrest options are available on all chairs, there are three typical styles of leg/foot rests:

1. Swing-away, Removable Foot Rests swing aside to allow easy access in and out of the chair as well as unobstructed use with tables and desks. Removable footrests also help to make the wheelchair more manageable when traveling.

2. Elevating Leg Rests are used when better circulation is needed or there is limited mobility in the leg. They raise the foot, straightening the leg. A calf pad is usually included.

3. Fixed Riggings are attached to the wheelchair frame and are not collapsible or removable, but the height of the footplate can be adjusted to the proper fitting.

For optimum comfort and safety, leg rests should provide a proper foundation for the legs and feet. The bottom thigh area should be fully supported by the seat while the soles of the feet are supported by the foot rests.

Discomfort, stress and poor posture can be caused when the legs and feet are left hanging without the support they need or when the foot rests are too high. Poorly fitted leg rests can have a destablizing effect on the chair, making it more difficult to push and navigate due to improper weight distribution.

Removable and fixed footrests are available at different angles depending on the users needs. A lesser angle allows the feet to extend further in front of the wheelchair for people who do not bend well at the knees. It also allows the heels of the feet to avoid the wheels when using larger diameter casters. A higher angle will bring the feet closer to your body and the wheelchair, shortening the overall wheelbase, allowing the wheelchair to turn in tighter spaces.

An axle plate is a bolt-on, adjustable plate that receives the rear wheels and allows for vertical and horizontal adjustment of the chair's center-of-gravity.
The farther forward you move a rear wheel the easier it is to push, but this will change the center of gravity making the chair easier to tip backwards. In addition to the standard option, axle plates can also come as:
  • Offset Axle Plate: This style combines the standard rectangle and curved shapes. Other than this stylistic difference, this option functions just like the standard axle plate.
  • Amputee axle: This offsets the axle behind the backrest for enhanced rearward stability. This changed center of gravity corrects any imbalance resulting from the amputee’s lack of forward body weight. Note that with this option the overall length of the chair is extended.
  • Curved Axle: Unlike the rectangle axle plate, the curved axle plate is curved. This allows the chair to be configured to more seat-to-floor heights. In most cases, the customer will just specify their required seat-to-floor height. The manufacture, while building your chair on the factory floor, will appropriately choose between the curved and standard axle plates in order to accommodate your preferred seat-to-floor height.

Easy to overlook, casters are critical to the performance of a wheelchair. Casters are the small front wheels of the wheelchair. They allow the wheelchair to steer and turn in any direction by rotating on its vertical axle.

Casters typically come in sizes from 3"" to 8"". The smaller the caster the better the maneuverability of the chair and the less likely it is to shimmy. But smaller casters on unpaved surfaces, riding in and out of elevators, or passing over street grates can be more problematic. Smaller casters are typical of chairs used for sports like basketball, which is played on an even, hard surface, yet their maneuverability makes them popular for everyday use. 3"" casters require the most riding skill and may not be the best choice for a first time wheelchair user.

The large 8", pneumatic (air-filled) caster provides the softest ride and easily rolls over bumps and raised surface, yet makes propelling the chair more difficult. Because of their size, 8"" casters can be an obstruction coming into contact with furniture or the rider's foot. Pneumatic tires need to be kept inflated with the correct pressure, and are capable of going flat.

4" to 6" casters offer a good combination of maneuverability, performance and ease of riding over surface obstructions. Composite (airless) casters offer better durability and quicker ride, while pneumatic casters provide a softer, slower experience.

Camber Angle is the off-vertical tilt of the rear wheels. It is adjusted to control maneuverability, speed and stability.

The greater the camber angle, the further the distance between the bottom of the rear wheels and the closer the distance between the top of the wheels. Increasing the camber angle provides the rider with increased maneuverability and stability, but also increases the overall width of the wheelchair.

Typically 0-3 degrees of camber is considered standard for everyday use to accommodate narrow doorways and aisles. A higher camber angle is useful for sporting activities such as basketball where added stability and maneuverability is desired.

Wheel locks, also known as brakes are used to keep the wheelchair in a stationary position, for example, while traveling on public transportation and for safe transfers in and out of the chair.

Using wheel locks as a braking device can cause injury and excessive tire wear and should never be used in this manner.

There are various types of wheel locks available:

1. Push-to-lock wheel locks are the most common. The break is engaged by the rider pushing forward and applying pressure with the palm of their hand until the lever snaps into position.

2. Pull-to-lock wheel locks work in the same manner as the push-to-pock except the lever is pulled forward. For some riders, it may be easier because it does not require as much upper body mobility needed to push the lever away from the body.

3. Swing-away, low-mount and under-mount wheel locks work in different ways depending on the style. These wheel locks help you avoid hitting your thumbs when pushing directly on the tires by mounting the wheel locks away from this range of motion. Due to its location, some riders with limited mobility may not be able to engage these wheel locks.

Wheel lock extensions provide a greater lever arm to apply and remove the locking mechanism, making the wheel locks easier to engage for a rider with decreased upper strength.
