PFLS: Greater Independence and Improved Lifestyle

21st Century SCIENTIFIC'S Power Front Load (Latitude) System (PFLS) can be installed on the BOUNDER Plus H-frame Power Chair. With a Power Front Load System the user can extend the seat forward and lower it to the ground, reducing the effective seat-to-floor height. The arms and front rigging move with the seat. This allows for easier transferring into and out of the chair and gives the user the ability to reach things on the floor. Great for double amputees, people with deformed lower extremities or who are short in stature.

Power Front Load System can be combined with Power Seat Elevator 2 (PSE2) and Power Tilt System (PTS). Some limitations apply:  The user cannot operate the elevate or tilt options when the seat is extended forward and cannot extend the seat forward if elevated or tilted. The user cannot drive the chair when the seat is extended forward.

Seat height and range of motion will vary depending on chair configuration, contact the factory for more information.
