The Redman company has service personnel available nationwide, including Alaska and Hawaii. Additionally, we have roving factory service trucks covering the contiguous U.S. for updates and factory adjustments. It is important to note, that the Redman Power Chair product is not a “new” chair in the complete sense of the word… We have constantly been improving the same chair, and building it in the U.S. with U.S. components, for over 20 years. The current 2011 Redman Power Chair is the result of all these years of progress, and it is very dependable and self diagnosing. As a family owned and operated company, we take great pride in our service; if something is not meeting your needs please let me know directly.
Bob Nedens is a long time Redman Power Chair user and he just received his new Redman Power Chair edition, replacing his trusty old Chief 107ZRx. Check out his superior skill on the straw… perhaps he should take up the harmonica??? Seriously though folks, this video shows Bob maneuvering with the ultimate of precision while testing out his new chair at our headquarters in Tucson, Arizona. The new Redman Power Chair is very “snappy” according to Bob, and it was very easy for him to tune into the new speedier and precise frame geometry. He was so good, I didn’t even flinch when he headed in my direction! 🙂
What happens in a Redman Power Chair design control meeting? When Don Redman met 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.
Since Red got his new Redman Power Chair Standing Power Chair about a month ago, he has called us no less than 5 times to express his complete satisfaction with our latest creation. Red can own any power chair of his choosing, and this is his 3rd Redman chair. He has done due diligence researching other brands of chairs prior to purchasing his 3rd Redman chair, so hearing him say our new chair is light years ahead of his old chairs means a lot to us. Red received our latest technology of extreme seat angle combined with high leg option allowing even greater body positioning. For quadriplegics such as Red, the extreme seat angle is a real contributor not only to lower sitting pressures but to greater sitting stability. In this video you will see Red doing high-speed brodies with his son and dog, Rupert, watching in the background.
“I really like the cheap high I get when going around and around.”

This article in New Mobility (digital bonus) is sponsored by Permobil but has some very positive things to say about Redman starting with (Options). I wish they would have used one of the pictures attached instead of the one of that Permobil. Charles Webb (pictured) has been a client of Redman for many years but only in the last couple of years did he decide to stand after over 49 years. Note what he says about his improved bone density and overall health. Amazing success story!
