It’s been five months, that I can call myself an owner of the iCHAIR MC MID. The picture below, I took has been taken just after receiving my new power wheelchair.
Since then I tested my “Baby”, how I use to call my iCHAIR, in various situations. I get along perfectly with this new power wheelchair in any situation. It is super maneuverable and compact, which is a great advantage for indoor use, at friend’s places, shopping centers, even in narrow disabled toilets. Even after a long and hard, stressful ten hour day I still can sit properly without any pain in the back. The powered tilit-in-space and backrest help me a lot changing my seat position independently.
To the user report
The first user of the iCHAIR MC MID
Johannes is the first user of the iCHAIR MC MID, which MEYRA has been producing and distributing since June 2015. Johannes has been using his intermediate-wheel-driven electric wheelchair for more than four months and now couldn't do without the advantages it offers: Thanks to the manoeuvrability and compact nature of the wheelchair, he can easily get around even the tightest corners in his flat.
Since he lives with MS, the 48-year-old pastor and mediator is dependent on his electric wheelchair. The capabilities of his iCHAIR MC MID give him a great deal of independence. For example, at home he can use the 30 cm lift function to reach higher cupboards. He can also use this function as a transfer aid to help him stand up when he wants to get out of his chair.
He also really appreciates the fact that he can recharge his mobile phone and his tablet directly form his wheelchair. The USB port is an optional extra on the iCHAIR MC MID.
Johannes is totally satisfied with his new wheelchair, and if he had to choose again he would certainly choose an iCHAIR MC MID.
Enjoy the outdoors with the iCHAIR MC2
Livia lives with SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) and has needed a wheelchair since she was a child. She has been using her iCHAIR MC2 for about six months. Because she needs to change her sitting position from time to time, it is necessary to make minor adjustments to the seat system. The iCHAIR MC2 is the perfect choice for her, as it is highly flexible.
Livia uses the electrical tilt-in-space several times a day for regular pressure relief. The wide adjustment range of the electrical backrest angle adjustment makes it possible for her to independently get into a relaxed position as soon as she is tired.
Livia is delighted that she can travel at 10 km/h in her wheelchair. This means that she can really get her husband to build up a sweat when they go out together. “I love outings in the Harz Mountains, where I can wander in woods, enjoy nature and rejuvenate in the woodland air", Livia says.
My passion: Wheelchair basketball
Kai was born with spina bifida. He has been using a wheelchair for about ten years. Before that, he walked with leg braces. However, due to his size, this became more and more difficult. Switching to a wheelchair was a great relief to him.
Kai has been living with his girlfriend for two years. She supports him completely in his passion for wheelchair basketball. Kai has other goals in mind for the future, for his sporting activities and his family.
Kai says he has only had good experiences with the Hurricane range. The new Hurricane S is Hurricane “number three” for him.
“The ‘S’ tops its predecessor in terms of handling and weight,” says Kai. Kai has often used his wheelchair in extreme situations, which, thanks to its sturdy frame, was no problem at all.
Travel the world with the Hurricane Everyday
Marco Hopp, ex-German champion and European Cup winner in wheelchair basketball, has been using his Hurricane Everyday for two years.
According to Marco, after two years of heavy use there is not a squeak or a creak, and the wheels don't wobble, even a millimetre. This is due to the fully welded frame construction, which is made of a lightweight, high-grade aluminium alloy. An additional special heat process gives the frame extra stability.
All of the features that make the MEYRA Hurricane legendary for basketball players have been developed for daily use of the Hurricane Everyday. A perfect fit for its driver, the solidly welded fixed-frame wheelchair is specially designed to be strong, agile and stable. Marco Hopp drives quite fast on the paths around the Heidelberg Castle ruins, which consist of smooth paving as well as fine gravel. He remarks: “The chair runs very easily and is very precise. It reacts perfectly to everything I do, and I can take on a little extra weight without any problems, thanks to the solid weight distribution system.”
“The chair is very forgiving, even if you don't treat it that well,” says Marco Hopp. “When the chair is transported in the hold of a plane, I can rest assured that nothing will get broken.” As the Hurricane Everyday has hardly any parts that wear out, you could travel the world with it.
My HURRICANE – as unique and unmistakeable as I am!
I think it is great that the HURRICANE by MEYRA is so individual and can be adjusted to fit me perfectly. Thanks to the fixed frame I can rest assured that nothing will get broken, because it really is very sturdy. The HURRICANE reacts to my every movement, which is why I love it.
My HURRICANE is unique and unmistakeable. Which is perfect for the way I live my life.
