Rehab Chairs
CUSTOM FIT
Because rehab chair user needs are so unique, we constantly update our
systems with new modules and features in a highly customized process.
We start with our MC-2 system, which offers superb control and flexibility
at excellent pricing. Then, we configure the controllers specifically to your
requirements, creating special chairs to maximize the user’s independence.
However challenging the need, manufacturers and therapists will find it
easy to build systems that suit individual applications.
Curtis vehicle control systems always deliver a ride that is smooth and
responsive in all modes: acceleration, deceleration, forward or backward,
on smooth indoor surfaces, up a hill or over gravel.
A RIDE THAT FITS THE LIFESTYLE
Curtis customization makes all the difference. Let our rehab chair
technology be your starting point, with unique features that
essentially plug-and-play, and a product line so flexible, it practically
configures itself. Our reliable, high-performance systems make it
amazingly easy to custom-fit features and ride to each rehab chair
user’s medical needs and personal style.
From advanced technology that controls the environment, to
rugged systems that let you push the limit, Curtis electric mobility is
always the perfect fit.
