Overview of the Image EC

The Drive Medical Image EC Power Wheelchair features mid-wheel drive wheels for a tighter turning radius and a height adjustable captain's seat. The Image EC features many adjustable components for a greater level of comfort. The seat, headrest and arms are all height adjustable and the footplate is angle, height and depth adjustable. The seat also reclines back and can be folded flat for transport. The Image EC also has easy access to the batteries and a joystick that can be mounted on either the left or right armrest to better meet your needs.

What Makes This Different
The Image EC has been designed with Dynamic Drive suspension for greater comfort and better climbing ability. The suspension on the front swivel anti-tippers prevents the mid-wheel drive wheels from losing contact with the ground and the drive wheels are also flat-free. The rear and front wheels are semi-pneumatic swivel wheels that aid in a smooth and comfortable ride.

Why We Like It 
We like all of the great standard features on the Image EC and the great low price. You would have to spend an additional $600 to get a high back captain's seat on any other model. The Image EC also has one free year of in-home service should you have any issues.

What You Need to Know When Ordering
The Image EC is a full-sized powerchair that is great for indoor use. It has a low 1" ground clearance so outdoor use on uneven terrain is not recommended. To transport this powerchair around town we recommend purchasing a vehicle lift.

This powerchair ships via a freight company and it will take 5-7 days to be delivered. It does require assembly upon arrival and if you are unable to assemble it you may want to consider upgrading to White Glove Delivery. This service will add 5-7 days to your delivery time because a technician will be scheduled to come to your home and set up the chair and ensure it is in working order.

Measuring Guide

View Detailed Measurements
Seat Depth1
Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Some prefer more leg overhang to make room for their hand when lifting their leg.

Back Height2
Measured from the seat base to the top of the chair back. Power wheelchair riders need upper back support, particularly for the moment of initial acceleration.

Hanger Angle3
Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the electric power wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.

Seat Width4
Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Consider bulk of clothing, particularly a heavy winter coat, if relevant.

Front Seat to Floor5
Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Electric power wheelchairs are almost never foot-propelled by the user - so excluding the additional two inch footrest height for propelling is very rare.

The antitip wheels create problems I didn't have with my last power chair=I have to get out of the chair to move the chair to stop the rear wheels
Reviewer: E. from Sunrise, FL

End User Desc:

Strengths: It's weight versus the light weight of my portable power chair.

Weaknesses: The anti tip wheels create problems getting into my apartment,elevators and transportation vehicles. It makes my back hurt more to have to get out of the chair and push. Because of this health threat I have only used the chair 6 times. My doctor thinks I am doing harm to the back problem I already have.
