Glide Series 6

Rear Wheel Drive Electric Wheelchair

Maximum Functionality, Manoeuverability, Stability and Features

The Series 6 power wheelchair features an adjustable width and depth seating system that allows the chair to be adjusted to the user's changing needs. When used with a seating module, the seating system can be moved back for better weight distribution. It also features the unique center of gravity compensation system that allows for the seat and back to glide forward, increasing stability when used with power tilt.

As with all Glide wheelchairs, the Series 6 is custom made in Australia to suit the user's exact requirements. To complement this, the user's seating and positioning requirements will be addressed by our Orthotist (seating expert) to ensure a comfortable fit is achieved.

Controllers

Dynamic Combined Light & Acuator Module

All lighting and seat actuator functions for the wheelchair can be provided from this one module.

The user can control all of these functions from a suitable DX Master Remote. Alternatively the seat positioning can be controlled with an Actuator Remote Control Module.

Using the Combined Lighting and Actuator Module is a very cost effective and compact method to wire and operate all of the functions. All power and control signals come through the DX BUS so no additional wiring is required.

Lighting
Lighting outputs are provided for left and right turning indicators, hazard lights, plus front and rear driving lights.

If required, each lighting function can be individually enabled or disabled. Detection of short circuit and open circuit lights can also be provided. If TÜV approved lighting is required the TÜV version of the Lighting Module should be used.

Seat Actuators
Up to 5 separate seat actuators can be individually operated, allowing adjustment of all seating angles, including seat raise, seat tilt, back recline and independent left and right leg raise.

A “soft start” feature ensures smooth actuator extension and retraction. The wheelchair can be stopped from driving or simply slowed down when specified seating positions are used.

The actuators are protected against overheating in two ways;

Separate programmable current limits for each actuator to detect the end-of-travel
Programmable timer to limit continuous operation
