PSE2 at the Lake

Wheelchair users know how frustrating it is to always be at a seated height. Wouldn't it be great to bring your eyes to standing height? Converse with others eye to eye? Reach things that a standing person takes for granted! Take charge of your envirnoment with a BOUNDER equipped with our Power Seat Elevator. This option allows users better access to their environment. With the PSE2 option, the user can reach top drawers of a file cabinet, kitchen cabinets, high shelves and so forth. They will be able to see the food that is being offered at the cafeteria, reach merchandise on display racks, etc.

Power Seat Elevator in Action
Power Seat Elevator

Power Seat Elevator 2 (PSE2) uses a scissor lift mechanism and is available on the BOUNDER Power Wheelchair. The seat, back, arms and front rigging all elevate together. The PSE2 can elevate up to 13" (33.02cm)* depending on user weight, bringing the user to standing eye level. Even more impressive, most users under 400 lbs can drive the chair in the raised position. Limited speed, operation on level ground, and good judgment are of course required.

Toggle switch or joystick control of the power seat elevator is available. The PSE2 power seat elevator can be combined with tilt and recline.

A complete drive lockout is available if you do not want to have the ability to drive the chair while elevated. Reduced speed drive lockouts allow the user to drive the chair while elevated but at reduced speeds. The elevation is reduced to 8” (20.32 cm) for users over 300 lbs. The PSE2 is not available for uses over 450 lb.

*There are some weight/height limitations, be sure to check with the factory as to the maximum height for a particular the user's weight.
