Bounder Plus with seat elevator at Yellowstone Park

Wheelchair users know how frustrating it is to always be at a seated height. Wouldn't it be great to bring your eyes to standing height? Converse with others eye to eye? Reach things that a standing person takes for granted! Take charge of your envirnoment with a BOUNDER equipped with our Power Seat Elevator.This option allows users better access to their environment. With the PSE2 option, the user can reach top drawers of a file cabinet, kitchen cabinets, high shelves and so forth. They will be able to see the food that is being offered at the cafeteria, reach merchandise on display racks, etc.

Power Seat Elevator 2 (PSE2) uses a scissor lift mechanism and is available on the all BOUNDER Chairs. The seat, back, arms and front rigging all elevate together. The PSE2 can elevate up to 13" (33.02cm)* bringing the user to standing eye level. Even more impressive, most users under 250 lbs can drive the chair in the raised position. Limited speed, operation on level ground, and good judgment are of course required.

Toggle switch control is standard. Optional Through-The-Joystick control of the power seat elevator is available. Many power seating systems are available with the PSE2. It can be combined with tilt, recline, and/or power elevating legrests.

A complete drive lockout is available if you do not want to have the ability to drive the chair while elevated. Slow and medium speed drive lockouts are also available allowing the user to drive the chair while elevated but at slower speeds. This may be required on certain combination seating systems and for users weighing over 250 lb. Also, the elevation is reduced to 8” (20.32 cm) for users over 250 lbs. The PSE2 is not available for uses over 500 lb.

*There are some weight/height limitations, so be sure to check with the factory as to the maximum height for a particular the user's weight.
