Discover Pride Mobility’s Mid-Wheel 6 Technology

The world of power wheelchairs is vast. There are many options to serve innumerable needs. Imagine we’re in the showroom of a Pride Mobility provider. An associate asks what features are on your wishlist. When you explain that a stable, easy-to-maneuver device would fit your lifestyle, he stops you with a smile.

He directs you toward the many Jazzy models that are equipped with Mid-Wheel 6 Technology. You want stability? You’ve come to the right place! These power wheelchairs have six wheels. The middle drive wheels are the largest of the set. The front and rear wheels provide added stability, especially on uneven terrain.

You may be asking: doesn’t having six wheels give you six chances to feel bumps in the road?

That’s a very astute question. Luckily, Pride Mobility engineers addressed that issue with Active-Trac ATX Suspension. Together, ATX and Mid-Wheel 6 Technology team up for an exceptionally smooth ride.

The active front casters lift when climbing an obstacle and drop down when descending. From the rider’s perspective, there’s minimal jostling as you move purposefully over the threshold and into the house.

Once inside, Mid-Wheel 6 reveals its other shining feature: maneuverability. With its powerful drive wheel in the center, your Jazzy has a naturally tight turning radius. You’ll find the  joystick control to be intuitive and responsive as you glide around corners.

Let’s return to our imagined conversation at a Pride Mobility dealer. A need for stability and control brought you to models with Mid-Wheel 6 Technology and ATX Suspension. Your Pride dealer shows you five models to choose from, each with their own set of strengths.
