Pride Quantum Q6 Edge 2.0 Powerchair
- iLevel: drive at 3.5mph when elevated up to 12"
- TRU-Balance 3 configurable seating
- ATX suspension
- Lie flat
The Q6 Edge 2.0 is an advanced powerchair from Quantum, available with the standout iLevel seat raiser that allows you to drive at walking speed while fully elevated. A serious upgrade on its predecessor, the Edge 2.0 features the configurable TRU-Balance 3 seating system to provide you outstanding comfort and advanced powered positioning options, while ATX suspension and mid-wheel drive allow it to excel both indoors and out. Advanced Q-Logic 3 controls give you sophisticated control over your powerchair as well as connectivity with your environment, making the Q6 Edge 2.0 one of the most impressive powerchairs available on the market.
The standout feature of the Edge 2.0 is the iLevel seat raiser, which allows you to drive at walking pace (3.5 mph) while elevated up to 12 inches. As the name suggests, this allows you to drive at eye level - in contrast to most other powerchairs with powered lift, which are limited to crawling along at slow speeds. Being at eye level enhances social interactions, even when on the go. Faster actuators allow the full lift to be attained within 24 seconds, all at the press of a single switch.
The Edge 2.0 can be fitted with all the other powered options one would expect of a high-end powerchair, including 175° of shear-reduced recline - allowing you to lie flat when combined with powered elevating leg rests, and 50º of tilt to aid in pressure relief whilst maintaining centre of gravity shift. This is complemented by the TRU-Balance 3 Seating System, which features an amazing range of seat widths and depths, from 12 - 22 inches, while the more basic Synergy seating offers an affordable alternative for those without advanced seating needs.
Like its predecessor, the Edge 2.0 power base comes with mid-wheel drive, allowing it to turn on the spot with a turning radius of just 20.5 inches - making it incredibly manoeuvrable indoors compared to traditional rear-wheel drive chairs. ATX suspension at both the front and the rear ensures a stable and comfortable ride outside, and the 4-pole motors on the Q6 Edge 2.0 provide a 4 mph top speed, with the option to upgrade to 6 mph. For those looking primarily to drive outdoors, we would recommend also considering the Q6 Edge Z - a larger but more powerful version of the Edge 2.0. A range of controls are available for the Edge 2.0 depending on need - we would recommend Quantum's advanced Q-Logic 3 system, pictured above, although R-Net controls are available too.
The Q6 Edge 2.0, however, doesn't just provide comfort and performance - the Quantum range is known for its stylish looks, and the Edge 2.0 is no exception. Available with a large range of shroud colours as standard, the appearance can be customised according to your preferences. Finally, the Edge 2.0 is also crash-tested, making it suitable for occupied transportation in an adapted vehicle
One of the primary appeals of the Edge 2.0 is the iLevel function, so the powerchair is particularly suited to those wanting to drive at regular speed while elevated. It is also the most affordable powerchair with the option for lie-flat powered recline, ideal if you want to sleep in the chair. The Edge 2.0's nearest competitors are Sunrise Medical's Quickie Q500 M and Invacare's TDX SP2 NB - the Edge offers a selection of advanced features not found on either of them. While the successor Q6 Edge 3 has now been released, that is at a much higher price-point than the Edge 2.0, so for those not needing the advanced SRS suspension of the new Edge 3, the Edge 2.0 is still worth considering.
