Question about Pride Jazzy Select 6 Indoor Power Wheelchair

1 Answer

Hi. Just got a new Jazzy Select 6 Ultra, with the seat lift. Only now am I finding out that the seat lift raises the minimum height of the seat so much that I can't fit under a normal size table. I have looked online for complaints about this issue but found none. Am I missing something?

There are several approaches to a solution tof the problem you are experiencing.
This chair may have a standard van seat or rehab seating. A standard van seat looks like an SUV seat and a rehab seat has a custom seat and custom back. FYI, the Jazzy Ultra 6 specification for the seat actuator is 4 inches of stroke or elevate.
If you have a van seat the cushion will be too high in its lowest position.
If you have a van seat the vendor can switch it out for rehab seating. Rehab seating is a seat pan (flat plate) with a cushion set on top of it. By varying the cushion thickness you can raise or lower what is technically called the seat to floor height measured from the top of the cushion to the floor. This is what you describe as the minimum seat height.
If you already have rehab seating, you might try a thinner seat cushion, going from 3" to 2" with a denser material.
The chair frame and actuator dimensions are locked in so this dimension cannot be altered. On some occasions, I have been able to remove some top actuator frame plates, but this will only help with about 1/4" of height and substantially weakens the seat to top of actuator mounting. Sometimes this reinforcing plate will be on the bottom of the actuator in the battery box frame.
The chair can go back to the factory and a custom modifications to the seat frame can be made. This is always easier and more cost effective on the front end at time of order of the chair. An inquiry would need to be made to Quantum (Pride) to see if this is even possible.
You may also be able to get a Motion Concepts custom, i.e. shorter actuator (less than 4 inches of stroke). This will also decrease your elevate to less than 4 inches.
Your provider and an experienced rehab tech can come up with some viable solutions. Hope this helps.

Power indicator indicates fully charged. Speed control indicator led's flash continuously. chair runa at 1/4 speed. What needs to be done to get it to run properly and stop flashing.

You may need to take to a Pride dealer to plug the diagnostic unit in to check for faults. Have you got a power seat lift on the chair. When the seat is up (or not fully down) the drive speed is limited so you wont tip over. If the seat is down fully and still have problem, it could be the down micro switch needs adjusting or is faulty.

Hi I purchased a used jazzy 1103 for my father and need to replace the batteries I cannot remove the seat directions say pull friction lever up to remove seat however the seat won't move

the seat post is probably rusted in the post. Try lifting the handle and twisting the seat and pulling up at the same time it can really be very hard but keep trying and maybe get some help to lift as it is being turned. I've had to use a hoist to lift it off the floor and twist the seat until it comes out. Hope this helps
