Design Control Meeting

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.

Garlin “Red” Willingham & His New Redman Power Chair

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.”

Article: Seating & Positioning, Options & Benefits

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!
