Q300M Mini

Mid-Wheel Powered Wheelchair

The ultra-compact (520 mm width) powerchair that’s packed with BIG powerchair performance.

The narrowest TRUE mid-wheel drive powerchair.

Go where others can’t with the Q300 M Mini – the narrowest (520 mm) TRUE mid-wheel drive powerchair with a turning circle of just 1200 mm. Building on its predecessor, the Salsa M2 Mini, we’ve taken outdoor performance to the next level with BIG powerchair features to get you further than ever before.

Enjoy a safe and comfortable ride with patented all-wheel suspension that independently cushions every wheel. Climb kerbs of up to 4″ (100 mm)  with 14” (355 mm) drive-wheels. Power through tricky terrain with super-strong 4-pole motors and enjoy an energy-efficient range of up to 22 miles with 56Ah batteries.

Plus with a multi-adjustable seating system and a whole-host of styling options, the original ultra-compact powerchair is back and better than ever! Be the first to experience it and book a demonstration now. 

What is TRUE mid-wheel drive technology?

It‘s when the powerchair‘s drive wheels are aligned central to its length. If positioned more towards the front or rear, the turning circle is wider (and there‘s more of the powerchair swinging around). There‘s also less weight on the drive wheel, reducing traction. Whereas the Q300 M Mini provides the most-compact turning circle and increased traction and stability thanks to its TRUE mid-wheel drive design.

Your travelling companion.

Crash-test approved for use with Four-Point tie down restraint systems, the Q300 M Mini also has some nifty little features to make day-to-day travel just that little easier:

Retaining traction on ramps
Front castor wheels force the drive-wheel off the ground? The Q300 M Mini’s front castor arms move independently from the base so the drive wheel will retain its traction.

Wheelchair adapted vehicles
The Q300 M Mini will easily fit under the steering wheel of your vehicle thanks to it’s ultra-low 16″ (410 mm) seat height.

Perfect for hoisting
Weighing just 103 kg, the Q300 M Mini can be easily hoisted in and out of your vehicle – and the optional fold-down backrest, swing-away legrests or removable armrests will provide an even more compact package.

Power-up your Q300 M Mini with powered options:

Tilt in Space

Adjust your seat positioning throughout the day for pressure relief with 30 degrees of powered tilt.

Lift & Tilt

Providing safer transfers, the 300 mm seat lift also helps you to reach everyday objects that would otherwise be out of grasp. Bringing you eye-level with the world around you, combine lift with 30 degrees of tilt for pressure relief on a whole new level!

Powered Recline Back

Independently adjust your seat-to-back angle throughout the day to help relieve pressure and redistribute your weight.

Powered Elevating Legrests

Raise your legs whenever you need to in order to reduce swelling.

F.A.Q.

Powerchair batteries should be charged after every use for no less than 8 hours, in most situations clients use the chair throughout the day, put it on charge in the evening and the take it off charge the next morning. It is important to note that if the chair is not used for a particular length of time that the chair still needs to be charged, if possible select a day during the week and put the chair on an overnight charge every week it’s not in use. 

There are too many variables such as chair type, battery size, powered seat functions in use, charge process, terrain etc to give any exact information however there are certain manufacturers that build in software for you to connect to and receive up-to date information on battery life.

The high risk nature of a cushion is indeed relating to pressure relief but not necessarily because of any historical issues. The support provided by this level of cushion offers structural positioning as well as pressure relief for anyone sitting for a considerable length of time. Meaning that regardless of your situation, if you’re spending a lot of time in your chair then it is very important that you invest in a suitable cushion to support you for the duration. 

In terms of manoeuvrability a compact, mid-wheel drive (MWD) chair is definitely the superior option. Due to the main wheels being centred directly under the seat it allows the chair to turn around that axis, the wheels turn in opposite directions to each other similar to a rowing boat or caterpillar tracks when turning which keeps the turning circle extremely tight. In addition to this, unlike a front-wheel drive (FWD) or a rear-wheel drive (RWD) chair there is absolutely no obstruction either behind or in front of you. 

Yes they can, all of the prescriptive paediatric chairs supplied by CMS have the ability to adjust by 2-3” inches in either width or depth. The only thing to bear in mind is the change in seat cushion and potentially backrest height.
