Sunrise Medical Wheelchair Simple Yet Well-Appointed


FRESNO, Calif., August 15, 2016 — Today, Sunrise Medical introduced the new Quickie® QX manual folding wheelchair to the QX Series, appealing to users seeking the established benefits of the Quickie brand — strength, durability, and style — who also need a wheelchair with a Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Code K0004 designation.

The new Quickie QX has a vertically-adjustable axle plate and a HCPCS Code K0004 designation, while the QXi has both vertical and horizontal adjustability and a HCPCS Code K0005 designation. Axle plate adjustments to both chairs can be made in less than one minute, and a single tool allows the fine tuning of center of gravity, seat-to-floor height, back height, and axle camber and spacing.

The Quickie QX Series wheelchairs feature not only unparalleled ease of adjustability, but an ultra-lightweight and durable aluminum frame and the extra stability and power efficiency of a three-arm cross brace that sits inside the frame for a more rigid ride. Thousands of custom configurations are available with popular Quickie options including armrests, wheels, tires, and casters, and swing-in/swing-out hangers with simple footrest adjustments and intuitive release levers. Quickie's full 28-color pallette is also available to add further style to the QX Series wheelchairs.

Sunrise Medical Associate Product Manager for Adult Manual Wheelchairs, Jesus Ibarra, said the QX Series wheelchairs provide an excellent option for users looking for a low maintenance, reliable wheelchair with the advantages and options of the Quickie manual product line.

"The QX and QXi are great performing, hassle-free wheelchairs," said Ibarra. "Dealers and clinicians will love the simple serviceability of these chairs, and end-users will appreciate the comfort, performance, and style of the QX and QXi."
