This is exciting news for folks that really want the comfort of an all power recline chair that won’t gobble up your whole room! This chair effortlessly lifts the footrest, glides forward as it reclines back, so it can be placed a mere 4, 5 or 6, inches (depending on the size chair you choose) from the wall and still reach a relaxing recline. Of course the other huge feature of a power lift-recline chair is that they fold up, return to seated and then lift you gently to your feet without effort. Perfect for anyone that has a difficult time getting out of that easy chair without help.

The double seamed backrest offers great support, and the fully upholstered chaise pad is comfy for your legs since there is no gap between the seat and the footrest. The arms, back and chaise are overstuffed for extra comfort.

SpinLife in Atlanta: MedTrade Wrap-Up

20161102_104609

 

Every October thousands of Home and Professional Medical Equipment industry professionals attend the Fall MedTrade convention in Atlanta.

The annual conference is known as the place where the both well-known and start-up manufacturers show off their latest and greatest products. The SpinLife team was there to visit with our vendor partners and meet some new brands. MedTrade is the perfect opportunity for our team to see, touch, and try out the new products we’ll be adding to our site. Every year we see new companies showcasing innovative products, helping SpinLife keep our commitment of bringing the world to you!

We experienced several new exciting products on the show floor. The new Graphite-fiber folding ramps from EZAccess can weigh as little as 7 lbs which is great for life on the go. Pride Mobility is building on the success of the Jazzy Air by releasing it, the Jazzy, and GoChair in new fashionable colors. We got to sit in Golden Technologies’ new space saving wall-hugger lift chairs that only need 4” of clearance against a wall: perfect for smaller homes. One new product we loved was Comodita’s new Avanti rolling walker. It has one-handed braking and it stays upright when folded! Anyone who’s had to load a walker into a trunk will appreciate that.

One trend that stood out at the show was the number of recreational scooters. Manufacturers are introducing many cool new scooters that go faster, longer, and come in fashionable colors. We also saw a trend towards scooters that can seat two people and some even collapse between one and two seats. People of all ages and with many different mobility needs will be well served by the wide variety of scooters coming onto the market, and we’re excited to see what’s next.

Our Merchandising team left the show excited about the new products that will soon be available. And our Marketing team can’t wait to show you what’s in store for 2017!
Stay Tuned! It’s getting exciting!

Motorcycle style, scooter functionality – Meet the Maverick!

Maverick scooter

Stay in touch with your wild side with Drive Medicals’ motorcycle-inspired Maverick scooter.

The powerful Maverick scooter sets no boundaries as it travels up to 35 miles on powerful 1300 watt motors, and a top speed of 9.5 miles per hour.

Enjoy the benefits of the supportive and sport high back captain’s seat that swivels for easy access, reclines for comfort as you kick back and cruise the neighborhood. The padded armrests are angle adjustable for your driving pleasure. The Maverick scooter sports three 19.5 inch air filled tires on 5-spoke chrome wheels. The front forks and rear heavy duty suspension give the smoothest ride. With performance that beats most mobility scooters, the Maverick is rated to climb up to a 10 degree slope, and the ground clearance is a healthy 5 inches.  maverick scooter

The Maverick scooter comes loaded with all the bells and whistles you’d expect on a machine that looks like this. Sporting a digital LED array, the dashboard offers real-time feedback. The old-school single headlamp incorporates bright turn-signals and a glare reducing front windscreen in the sleek front fairing, . The Maverick is controlled differently than other mobility scooters, with the throttle on the right hand grip and the brake lever on the left hand grip, much like a motorcycle.   Safety features include a seat belt, rear view mirror and hazard lights.Maverick scooter

The raked silhouette and handlebar risers make the Maverick a real head-turner! This full sized ride has a weight capacity of 400 lbs. and an overall length of 65 inches. Trick this ride and make it your own- available accessories include a locking rear trunk, side bags and beverage holder. If you were Born-to-be-Wild, then the Drive Medical Maverick will surely suit your style!

Wall-Hugger Lift and Recline chairs. Do they really exist?

mystic-sx-882-virtuosojava-sl-3020-up

 

Is there such a thing as a wall-hugger chair that also lifts and reclines? Over the last few years Lift-and-Recline chairs have become really popular for their comfort and convenience features. Relaxing in a comfortable recliner to nap, read or watch TV is a great American pastime, and if that recliner operates with an electric hand control it’s all the better! No more pushing and straining to recline the back, no more handle-on-the-side to pull up on to raise your feet – just push a button and there it goes. Not to mention getting up! Many people report that they just can’t get up and out of their recliners any more, and a lift chair is the perfect solution to that issue.

A common complaint with Lift-and-Recline chairs is that they take up way too much space because they have to be placed too far out in the room.

This really can be a problem, particularly for those people who live in smaller homes or apartments. Today I’d like to highlight three of our best-selling three position recline and lift chair models that are also “Wall-Huggers”.  They can be placed just 4 inches from the wall!

SpinLife is proud to offer the Serta Perfect Lift Chair line-up by Novo Home. These chairs are supportive, yet extremely welcoming, featuring the individually-wrapped coil springs that Serta is so well known for.  Incorporating a gel-infused memory foam layer makes these chairs soft and conforming to the body while keeping you cool and comfortable. The chair backs feature Pirelli webbing for resilient support and pressure relief.

We suggest you check out these three position “Wall-Hugger” models from Novo Home:

The Mystic: Available in a soft, high quality suede finish fabric called Palance Silt it is neutral in color, and soft to the touch. It’s heavily padded and super comfy!

Spotlight on the innovative WheelAble shower commode chair

WheelAble Travel Shower Commode Chair

The WheelAble travel shower commode chair is an innovative shower commode chair from Clarke Healthcare designed with your comfort and convenience in mind! While there are other shower commode chairs that fold, no other model folds as neatly and compactly. The WheelAble travel shower commode chair is specifically designed to allow you to take your vital showering equipment along with you on your travels.

WheelAble folded

The WheelAble has some unique design features that make it more user friendly than many shower commode chairs. First, the overall width is only 19 inches, so you can get through bathroom doors with ease. It is built with an under-seat height of 18.5 inches, which allows it to slide over any commode. The whole structure is made of corrosion-proof molded plastic, with stainless steel fittings, so it’s easy to maintain, and rust free. The commode seat is padded, and the backrest is contoured for comfort. Armrests raise up and drop down flat for easy transfers.

 

 

Perhaps the neatest feature is the way it folds. Release the latches, and the backrest and seat fold forward and down, then the whole unit folds inward, like a wheelchair would, into a compact 26.13” X 8.97 “ X 21” space. We think that would be pretty handy for storage, don’t you? Folded and stowed, it will really save valuable bathroom space!

Folded and in the carrying case

 

If travel plans are in your future, the lightweight WheelAble is the perfect travelling companion.

It’s lightweight design weighs only 25.5 lbs. – making travelling a breeze. Order the optional custom carrying case and take it along on your next adventure! The case has casters on the bottom, so you can discreetly roll the WheelAble along like a rolling suitcase.
