The Power of Jazzy WheelchairBy Wheelchair Site ,
Publication Date: 2006
Article focuses on the Jazzy Wheelchair from Pride Mobility, which is a battery-operated powered wheelchair. The Jazzy allows the user to go up and down stairs, negotiate curbs, travel over a wide range of surfaces and terrain, and participate in eye-level conversations with others while they are standing. The wheelchair uses an integrated system of software, sensors, and electronics to balance on difficult terrain, while the occupant can choose different modes of operation. The occupant simply presses a button for standard, four-wheel-drive, balance, or stair-climbing modes, while speed and travel direction are controlled via joystick. The author contends that the Jazzy Wheelchair is a high-endurance, reliable mobility device for people with disabilities who enjoy active lifestyles.
