Having carried out a consultation for the Quantum 4Front at the start of this week, we’ve decided to profile this distinctive powerchair that has attracted much interest since being launched earlier this year.
Front-wheel drive is increasingly uncommon on powerchairs, usually being limited to bariatric models, and can often take longer to pick up than rear or mid-wheel drive as it is not as intuitive. However, once you are used to it, front-wheel drive offers outstanding manoeuvrability, aiding in its practicality when used indoors, and it is obviously the ideal choice for those already familiar with front-wheel drive.
It was therefore pleasing to see Quantum release the 4Front this year – a truly market leading front-wheel drive powerchair that combines the full range of customisation options you would expect on a high-end powerchair, modern technology, and striking style – as you can see on our demo chair.
The 4Front compares favourably to the competition, being more compact, better looking and having a wider range of powered seating options than the Quickie Jive F. The Puma 40 is a cheaper alternative in a tried-and-tested design, but again lacks the full range of seating options the 4Front boasts – like the ability to drive at walking pace when elevated to eye-level, or lying flat with 175° of recline.
