We are very proud of our new flagship design – MagSHOCK™. This Magnesium framed folding electric wheelchair took nearly 2 years to bring to market from design concept to product launch. You know the saying “Imitation is the Highest form of Flattery”, well as the industry leader we were tired of all the look-a-likes!
Our first two models: Regular and Heavy-duty were copied by so many OTHER companies, that customers were getting confused about the differences between the choices. People were starting to think that just because it LOOKED like a FOLD & GO, that it PERFORMED like a FOLD & GO. Appearances can be deceiving!
Our wheelchairs have ALWAYS been weatherproof, able to climb a 25 degree hill, and made from a mountain bike frame for added comfort. The OTHER companies are NOT waterproof, and the frame is made out of Aluminum, and they will only climb up a 12 degree handicapped ramp (not the hills we all face in real-life situations).
Enter the IDEA for a completely different folding electric wheelchair that looked NOTHING like the rest of our competition. It was time for us to get back to leading the industry, and pushing the limits of design, innovation and functionality. Which has always been the foundation of our company.
So what EXACTLY is different. We first changed the frame material to Magnesium. Magnesium is just as strong as Titanium, but is 10% lighter than Aluminum. We also changed the shape of the frame from tubular to oval. This oval frame dramatically increased the bump-dampening qualities of our chair. So now when we drive over rocks, bricks, cobble stones, pavers, bushes, and small children…it is SMOOTH like Butter! We also made additional changes from LISTENING TO OUR CUSTOMERS. What…”No Way, you guys actually listen to customer feedback, now that’s just crazy!”
Here is a list of additional changes just because our customers asked:
- Make it LIGHTER – Shaved off 5 lbs
- Make it TALLER – The seat height from ground to the top of the cushion is 20″
- Make it WIDER – The seat width is 20″, plus we removed the support bar under the armrest, so if you have more cushion’ for the pushin’ you can sit comfortably with the extra space.
- Make it even more COMFORTABLE – The Magnesium frame comes with our MagCONTOUR™ innovation. Our backrest, seat and backrest cushions are ergonomically curved to follow the shape of our bodies.
- Help with LEG SPREAD – Paraplegics, quadriplegics, stroke, and drop foot, we have added a removable leg strap to help those of us keep our legs securely on the footrest.
- More COLORS – We added two new color choices: Pearl and Slate (blue grey mix)
We are very excited to bring this BEAUTIFUL WeatherPROOF Wheelchair to our customers around the world. Once again we have led by example. It is our goal to empower us and our customers live out our hearts desires to be more active, no matter what physical limitations our bodies currently have.
