Sunrise Quickie IRIS
- Quickie has developed a dramatic new approach to tilting in space. It's
called the Quickie® IRIS™ (Intelligent Rotation In Space). Unlike
systems that incorporate a fixed pivot-point, dual pivot-point, or
linear element, the Quickie® IRIS™' rotational design is based on the
idea of rotating the seat-frame around a user's center-of-gravity.
This, combined with up to 60° of posterior rotation and hi-resolution
adjustment, provides the ultimate in control, maneuverability, and
getting in the way? Not a problem with the new Quickie IRIS foot
release tilt actuator. It's easy to operate, clean as a whistle and
tangle free. It's also available at no additional charge.
The Quickie® IRIS™ utilizes a rotational tilt-system. Instead of
tilting the seat frame from an outside pivot-point the Quickie® IRIS™
actually rotates the seat frame around the users center-of-gravity.
This rotational system provides the shortest possible wheelbase without
compromising stability. It also insures a smooth and controlled
The 60° & 40° Tilt Advantage
The Quickie® IRIS™ features three tilt ranges: -5° to 50°, 0° to 55°,
and 5° to 60° on the standard 55° seat frame, and -5° to 35°, 0° to
40°, and 5° to 45° on the 40° seat frame. As the seat frame rotates
past 45°, a significant amount of pressure transfers from the seat to
the back. By providing up to 60° of tilt, the IRIS insures that the
majority of pressure is removed from the ischial tuberosities. For
individuals who only need positioning relief, the 40° tilt frame is
Low Seat-To-Floor Height
The Quickie Iris now features a 12 1/2" front seat-to-floor height.
Using a drop seat, this distance can be lowered to an even lower 10 ½"
seat-to-floor height. Low seat-to-floor height is critical for users
who use foot propulsion.
- The recently improved Quickie IRIS shed 6 lbs. in overall weight. An
18" x 18" IRIS with 70° hangers now weighs a slim 39 lbs. Compared to
the rotation-in-space competition, the IRIS is a true back saver.
- The Quickie® IRIS™ features a special angle-adjustable stroller handle that quickly adjusts to a variety of caregiver heights.
- A patented backpost bracket allows repositioning of the backpost seat-depth without removing the attaching hardware.
- Specialty options, such as a reclining backrest, vent-and-battery tray,
and one-arm drive are all available as "on-chair" options.
- A tilt-angle indicator and a set of tilt-stops ship with every chair to provide a precise tilt range and tilt angle-setting.
