The perfect combination of indoor manoeuvrability and outdoor performance.
With its mid-wheel drive technology, the Salsa-M electric powered wheelchair is able to deliver an extremely compact turning circle, allowing for great indoor manoeuvrability. A narrow width and very low seat height ensures that you're able to navigate through doorways and confined spaces effortlessly. When travelling outdoors, the all-wheel independent suspension and anti-pitch technology ensures stability and safety at all times.
All-wheel independent suspension
The patended all-wheel independent suspension ensures shocks and bumps are absorbed when riding over obstacles. The result - a softer and smoother ride in your electric powered wheelchair over rough or uneven terrain.
The powered wheelchair with an ultra small turning circle
Due to it's mid-wheel drive technology, the Salsa-M powered wheelchair can turn on its own axis, giving an ultra small turning circle that provides excellent indoor maneuverability in compact environments. In comparison, rear-wheel and forward-wheel power wheelchairs need to 'swing' around on its front or rear drive wheels, resulting in a wider turning circle.
The powered wheelchair that's intuitive to drive
When navigating a forward or rear-wheel powered wheelchair around the home, you must always take into account the 'swing' nature of the powerchair. The Salsa-M, due to its tighter turning circle, is more intuitive to drive, as you don't need to consider additional space for swinging the powerchair around - ideal for those who may have difficulty driving a powered wheelchair or using switches/head controls. In addition, the position of the seat directly over the drive wheel adds more weight on the drive wheel. This increases traction decreases sliding - for better all-round outdoor performance.
Elimination of pitching
Anti-pitch technology helps prevent your powered wheelchair from pitching forward and backwards on slopes or when navigating hills, always keeping you stable with the minimum of movement... and you're still able to climb a 70mm kerb!
