Sunrise Medical Quickie Salsa M2 Mini Powerchair
- Narrow 52 cm width
- Compact turning circle
- Salsa outdoor performance
- Configurable seating
The Salsa M2 Mini is the narrowest performance powerchair on the market. With a chassis width of just 52 centimetres, it is 9 cm narrower than the market-leading Salsa M2 - yet still offers exactly the same drive base, only narrower, meaning it continues to excel outdoors, and can be fitted with the same range of seating options. This makes it the ultimate powerchair for extreme indoor manoeuvrability and excellent outdoor performance.
The Salsa M2 Mini is essentially the same as the regular Salsa M2, albeit with 9 cm shaved off the width. While the larger seat sizes overhang the base and slightly increase the width, the Salsa M2 Mini remains narrower overall than the Salsa M2 even at the largest seat size. This makes it the narrowest high-end powerchair available, excelling at getting around small houses, into through-floor lifts, and docking in WAVs, which wider powerchairs can struggle with. The mid-wheel drive complements this compact width, allowing the M2 Mini to literally turn on the spot, with a turning circle of just 110 cm.
Just as capable outdoors, the M2 Mini retains the same 6 wheel suspension system and anti-pitch technology as its larger brother, as well as the ability to climb kerbs of up to 7 cm. The only two limits on its outdoor performance are the battery size - which are limited to 41 Ah, rather than the 60 or 70 Ah batteries on the standard Salsa M2 - although the reduced weight means this only reduces the maximum range to 15.5 miles. Additionally, the top speed of the M2 Mini is limited to 6 mph, as against the 8 available on the regular Salsa M2. Despite these, the Salsa M2 Mini remains capable of tackling the same terrain, meaning it excels outside.
The same matt black styling as on the M2 is available on the Salsa M2 Mini, as well as a range of four shroud colours, allowing you to customise the appearance of your wheelchair.
The Salsa M2 Mini is suitable for 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”. A number of seating options including the JAY range are available, allowing the M2 Mini to be configured to the size and needs of the user. Powered seating options are also available, including powered lift, powered tilt, powered recline and powered elevating leg rests - these assist with both posture and comfort, particularly when spending longer periods of time in the wheelchair.
The Salsa M2 Mini is also fully crash tested making it safe to use for occupied transport, and comes with tie-down points.
The Salsa M2 Mini is best suited to people wanting a configurable powerchair primarily for indoor use, particularly in restrictive environments, but who also need both power and comfort when driving outside. The highest benefits will be felt by slimmer people, as their narrower seat sizes won't overhang the base significantly. The Salsa M2 Mini is now available on the Motability scheme, as well as for hire and purchase.
We would also recommend considering the new Quantum Edge 3 Stretto, which is the same width and has some more advanced seating options available.
The new Q300 M Mini has been launched as a successor to the Salsa M2 Mini - given it is a better and newer product, and similarly priced, we would highly recommend opting for that instead.
