Sunrise Medical Quickie Salsa M Powerchair
- Great outdoor performance
- Large range of seating options
- Full suspension
- Mid-wheel drive manoeuvrability
The Sunrise Quickie Salsa M is a powerful electric wheelchair that offers the some of the best outdoor performance in our range, as well as great manoeuvrability indoors. UK made, by Sunrise Medical, the Salsa M is a top quality performer trusted by medical professionals across the country.
The Salsa M is one of the best outdoor performers in our range, its suspension offering a smooth ride over uneven terrain. Anti-pitch technology eliminates the risk of pitching on slopes, keeping the wheelchair user safe on slopes of up to 8°. While some more basic mid-wheel drive powerchairs may struggle on uneven surfaces and ramps, the Salsa's all-wheel independent suspension allows it to negotiate them with ease. A long range of 16 miles means that the Salsa should never be without power, even when tackling rough terrain, and it is available with a top speed of 4 or 6 mph.
Equally at home indoors, mid-wheel drive allows the Quickie Salsa M to turn on the spot, and the narrow width of the wheelchair means that it can easily fit through doors and confined spaces. While most other powerchairs will offer a compromise between indoor manoeuvrability and outdoor performance, the Salsa is truly able to handle both with ease.
The Salsa M is suitable to a wide-range of wheelchair users, with a capacity of 22 stone (140kg), and the seat width and depth can be adjusted from 16” – 20”. When the wheelchair is delivered, we can set this up, along with the backrest height and seat angle to ensure your comfort. This means that the wheelchair will be set up precisely for the user, giving them the comfort and support that they need in a way that less-configurable powerchairs cannot rival.
For those with more specialist needs, a vast range of seating options are available with the Salsa, including comfort or pressure-relieving cushioning, backrests, headrests, legrests and lateral supports. Additionally, various powered postural additions can be fitted to the Salsa, including powered lift, powered tilt, powered recline and powered elevating leg rests.
The Salsa M is also fully crash tested making it safe for occupied transport when tied down in a suitably adapted vehicle.
The Salsa M has now been replaced in Sunrise Medical's range with the Salsa M2 (which has subsequently been superseded by the Quickie Q500 M), so is no longer available for purchase or long-term hire. However, we retain a fleet of Salsa M powerchairs for short-term hire, where it offers a reliable and versatile option for people needing a more advanced powerchair that can be customised to their needs and which offers a high level of manoeuvrability balanced with powerful performance outdoors.
We are also able to offer an ex-hire model at a reduced rate for either purchase or long-term hire; please call our customer service team for more information on this.
