Design Control Meeting

What happens in a Redman Power Chair design control meeting? When Don & Sam Redman meet with Steve and Mike from the Redman production department, they put their heads together to critique each others ideas to build a better product.

They recently discussed thoughts about improving the “Boomerang” attachment, which replaces the previous gear assembly. It currently allows you to add all the weight one could reasonably apply to the arm rest while keeping the system stable. Working on adding adjustability to the shear mechanism to control the speed of the movement to minamalize shearing forces.

The group also discussed some new aesthetic options to streamline the appearance for the chairs future models. They also covered some other “top secret” ideas in the works that will be revealed in time. These regular brainstorming sessions are significant to the ongoing process of improving the company’s standing power wheelchair.
