Full All Wheel Suspension System

Suspension allows all four wheels to remain on the ground and absorbs jolts from the terrain that can cause pain and increased pressure or shearing to the wheelchair user due to increased movement. This will help to maintain sitting balance and contact with the controller to safely drive the wheelchair.

Smoother driving is less likely to trigger abnormal reflexes or spasms, making sitting tolerance, posture, and driving better.

The superior suspension system decreases wear and tear on the chassis and motors.

Power Seat-to-Floor Function

The seat-to-floor function not only helps incorporate children into peer activities, but also enables many children to transfer independently in and out of the chair.

Seat-to-floor height can be lowered from 18 inch - 14 inch before going into reduced speed mode.

Allows the user to easily get under school desks or tables and functionally reach the floor while providing a more stable base by lowering the chair’s center of gravity while driving.

Assists in activities of daily living such as reaching lower bookshelves, pet care and interaction, and floor activities with peer groups.

WC/19 Transport Kit

K450 MX is currently crash tested to ANSI/RESNA WC/19 - this is an option in addition to the 4-point tie downs that are standard on all Permobil power wheelchair bases.
MX Features and Benefits - Modularity

Ability to easily add power tilt, alternative drives, positioning accessories, and growth capabilities as client’s needs change.

Power options include, Seat Elevator, Seat-To-Floor function and optional Power Tilt.

A Free Growth Kit is available.

MX Features and Benefits - Power Tilt Option

45 degree tilt is available at ANY position / seat height.

45 degree tilt allows the user to tolerate sitting in the chair longer and be more functional.

5 degree anterior tilt is standard when power tilt is ordered.

MX Features and Benefits - Center-mount Legrests

Allows for legrest positioning at multiple angles and positions (Including 90 degree for a smaller functional turning radius.)

At 90 degree, the smaller footprint allows the user to get closer to cabinets, tables, and transfer surfaces. This is further enhanced by the seat-to-floor function.

Multiple Tool-Free Adjustments - forward / backward and angle adjustability.

2 footplate sizes available for the most appropriate fit.

MX Features and Benefits - R-Net Electronics

Allows for the customization of up to 8 different drive profiles.
