The Story of the Edge 3 Stretto® Kids Wheelchair

You have been asking Quantum for a true power wheelchair for kids. The Edge 3 Stretto® kids wheelchair is the result of your feedback! While existing Quantum power chair bases are compatible with pediatric seating, the Edge 3 Stretto offers a narrower width that offers exceptional maneuvering in at school, on the playground and in the home.

Why Choose This Kids Wheelchair?

The Stretto has an overall width of 20.47 inches when 12.5-inch drive wheels are selected.

The Stretto is compatible with TRU-Balance® 3 seating and offers a range of seating sizes, including sizes for kids. This pediatric wheelchair can be customized to meet the needs of your teenager or child. Available options include power recline, power tilt, iLevel® power adjustable seat height, static seating, Flex seating and power articulating foot platform.

The Edge 3 Stretto is equipped with independent SRS (Smooth Ride Suspension), which provides increased shock absorption due to shock angle on the power base. The spring rates are optimized for maximum obstacle climbing and overall comfort. Click here to learn more about independent SRS.

Benefits of iLevel on the Edge 3 Stretto

Kids Power Wheelchair Medicaid Funding

Kids power wheelchairs can be covered as Durable Medical Equipment (DME) under state Medicaid programs. If your child qualifies for Medicaid, Medicaid may cover the cost of a power wheelchair. Your child must have a medical need for a specific wheelchair and a written prescription from your child’s doctor must indicate the type of wheelchair needed.

Where to Buy a Wheelchair for Kids

If your child has a medical condition that affects his or her mobility, they may qualify for a kids power wheelchair. Please schedule a face-to-face evaluation with your kid’s therapist or doctor. They can perform an evaluation to determine if your child may benefit from a complex rehab wheelchair, such as the Edge 3 Stretto.

If your child is prescribed a complex rehab power chair and a prescription is written, we can refer you to an authorized Quantum provider. They can assess your kid’s needs. A physical or occupational therapist may work with an Assistive Technology Professional, or ATP, to determine which kids wheelchair best suits your child.
