Sunrise Medical F55s Powerchair

With one of its many seating options. Since my heavily modified chair uses the same basic Chassis as the standard chair opposite then all of the Rehab seating options are available to bolt straight on if these things are of interest.

These include many aftermarket seating systems and Sunrises own seat riser, leg elevators, tilt, recline, etc. And all the latest colour screen control systems with interconnectivity are also easily fitted. Although they offer no actual advantages in the basic control system and are bigger so get in the way...

Personally I have no interest in these things so don't use any of them. I just want a chair with real control. But if you plan on building your own version of this or a similar chair its good to know that these options are easy to add!  At the expense of weight, C of G and possibly seat height.

Stock F55s Powerchairs like this are wider, longer, less powerful, pretty un-steerable, so less good indoors.

With almost no true outdoor capability and has doorway hitting swing away footrests sticking out in front...

And uses smaller batteries and more feeble 80 amp controller compared to my modified version.  (Shortly to be upgraded again to a 240 Amp one!)

It also has sweat inducing side plates on the wider arms & hard skinny grey tyres that shake your fillings out and the usual suspension that doesn't actually help... And the solid foam filled tyres are worse here.

It corrodes and gets punctures at a hell of a rate too! 

And its programming has to be experienced to be believed. Its that bad. Like most chairs sadly. 

My heavily modified black one has a about 6 pretty major engineering changes requiring some serious fabrication and design and 1001 small changes that cure all of these issues.  But this chair has the best "chassis" to use for my seriously modified version.  Although that's about the only bit that gets used as it is. Everything else is modified or replaced, re-engineered etc.

Burgerman.
