TB UK 193 - Discontinuation of the Quickie Tango



Due to the well documented issues with the global supply chain, we are constantly looking at ways to increase our efficiency and manufacturing practices to be as flexible as possible when supply shortages occur. To increase efficiency we have implemented streamlining our product portfolio, with the immediate discontinuation of the Quickie Tango on the 30th December 2022. Due to the emergence of the Q-Series portfolio, the units of our legacy powerchairs are now reaching a point where it is not sustainable to maintain production.

Customer Benefits
We can now offer a more focused product range with the new Q-Series powerchairs. With successor products: Q200 R and the NEW Q300 R.

Q200 R
QUICKIE Q200 R uses an innovative testing method called SMART base technology. This helped us to understand how geometry changes to a drive base can affect performance, creating a precision-measured TRUE indoor/outdoor powerchair. The Q200 R powerchair boasts a small footprint of 580 mm wide and 1070 mm long, with a 1700 mm turning circle, so navigating even the tightest of spaces is made easier. The Q200 R is Ideal if required for greater outdoor performance than the Q100 R and would benefit by having the ability to adjust the seat position via tilt to maximise comfort.

Q300 R
The Q300 R is the next evolution of modular tilt in space rear wheel drive. With an Ultra-short base length of 107 cm and 58 cm wide, the Q300 R is easy to manoeuvre in through the smallest lifts and tight spaces. Q300 R introduces module technology to offer the widest range of COG adjustment, ensuring optimal setting for all clients. Modular technology also optimises traction by ensuring 65% of load is over the rear wheels, providing the user with efficient traction for outdoor. The Q300 R is Ideal if required for multi-adjustable seating system for moderate to complex seating needs, with no compromise on outdoor performance.
