Quantum’s seating system passes crash test

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

EXETER, Pa. – Quantum Rehab’s Tru-Balance 3 and iLevel power seating systems are now crash tested and WC19 compliant, the company has announced. WC19 is the ANSI/RESNA testing standard that mobility devices must pass to serve as an occupied seat in a motor vehicle, according to a press release. “Occupied power chair transport in vehicles is vital, and we’ve known the historical limitations on non-crash-tested power seating systems,” said Jean Sayre, senior director of clinical development for Quantum Rehab. “We’re pleased to be the first in the industry to have power seating that’s fully crash tested and WC19-compliant for safer transport.” WC19-compliant power seating is available on the Quantum Q6 Edge with Tru-Balance 3 Tilt-and-Recline, Articulating Foot Platform, and iLevel elevation technology, configured individually or together, with up to a 300-pound weight capacity.
