Rehabilitation power wheelchairs are designed for patients with conditions such as paralysis, degenerative diseases, and morbid obesity. These chairs come with multiple options such as seats that have electronic tilt and recline controls just for folks who depend on their power wheelchair from the time they get out of bed to the end of their evening.
Quantum Rehab works with Aeroflow to provide these specialized devices. These power wheelchairs are a custom design to meet the patient’s needs, and for insurance to agree to cover any of it a physical therapist must evaluate the patient. The therapist’s assessment of the patient’s limitations and weaknesses allows Aeroflow’s mobility technicians to design the best possible chair.
One of the foremost concerns of people looking for a rehabilitation chair is how the device is controlled. Quantam Rehab utilizes the Q-Logic drive control system, a large line of controller options. These options include expandable and non-expandable systems that have are software-based for easy updating and maintenance. The software includes display screens that cover the speed, status of seat position, battery health, and reminder alarms.
Many patients Aeroflow services have continual care, and the optional models of the Q-Logic system include specialty joystick controls that maneuver for easy attendant use. For those patients with upper limb paralysis or amputations, Aeroflow provides a controller called the Sip-N-Puff which uses the patient’s breath to control the chairs speed, drive, and reverse functions.
Q-Logic also offers an environmental control unit for those without constant care. This item acts as a universal remote, simplifying the use of entertainment systems and household appliances like lights and fans. Environmental control units can also be programmed with Bluetooth capabilities so that the power wheelchair works as a single system to make all of daily life’s technologies within reach.
Deciding whether a rehabilitation power wheelchair is right for you requires the consultation of your doctor, a physical therapist and an Aeroflow mobility technician. Deciding which controller is needed has a lot of to with the medical limitations of the patient, but will be designed to make the patient comfortable. Through a collaborative effort, we can be sure to make a rehabilitation power wheelchair meet all of your expectations and needs.
