The quality of a Redman Power Chair is built in, not added on, and it all starts with the back-bone of the Chief 107 ZRx, the frame. We struggle with simply using the word frame, because it truly means so much more. Our frame is uniquely one piece that is tailored for each individual user according to their unique physical needs. Our approach to building the very best power chair available is not cheap. It’s taken over 20 years to perfect one design, completely integrating the unique design features of the Redman Power Chair, to give you a unified design that out-performs any other reclining, standing power chair. It’s built by a family owned company right here in the USA.
We don’t add standing on as a feature…it’s built in. Want to recline? We designed and built it in from the beginning.
Is this more expensive to build? You bet it is. But it’s worth it to have the durability and vastly improved performance. A Redman Power Chair has the smallest footprint of any reclining, standing power chair, allowing you to access your environment in ways you never thought possible. Indoors, outdoors, in your vehicle, at the office, and even in small, hard to navigate places like the bathroom.
We think it’s a thing of beauty. And it all starts with a frame. The backbone of the Chief 107 ZRx Redman Power Chair.
Mike Murphy is celebrating 14 years of employment with Redman Power Chair. His time as a customer service technical adviser has shown us just how much Mike values working with Redman customers. When something needs to be done, Mike is a roll-your-sleeves-up kind of guy that we can always count on to get things done. We are proud to celebrate this milestone with Mike, and we look forward to the next 14 years!
Wayne did a lot of searching to find the right chair for his needs, and in the end he chose the Redman Chief 107ZRx power chair from all the others he looked at. The key factors in his decision were comfort and quality.
Wayne test drove the Permobil C500 Stander power chair and felt it was big, bulky, and did not meet his needs.
Wayne had this to say about his new power chair: “I wanted a chair that’s going to last, that’s of good quality parts, good service…and I think I’ve got the right…I KNOW I’ve got the right system.” He goes on to say, “You don’t need to look any further. The Redman Power Chair is the best one on the market.”
Enjoy this video of Wayne’s entire testimonial, and then give us a call to schedule a free demo of the Redman Chief 107ZRx power chair to experience it for yourself.
America’s top-selling standing wheelchair is providing a new resource for customers with a bit of do-it-yourself-flare. By popular demand, the Redman Power Chair company has created the first of many online videos covering small repairs and maintenance to its power wheelchair.
“We’ve always been proud of our reliability and commitment to high customer service, but there are times when the customer simply wants to do repairs and upgrades themselves.”
“Customers have been asking for a way to do simple repairs more quickly and on their own and these videos will serve as a very useful resource to those folks,” continued Redman. “We are pleased to have them available for download on our website at https://www.redmanpowerchair.com.”

Redman Power Chair is pleased to announce a free upgrade to certain users of our power wheelchairs.
Previous user feedback lead us to a new, quieter real stabilizer wheel that we are proud to now offer for free to any user with a 2″ x 4″ wheel on their current chair. It’s important to us that our users have a great experience with our chairs, so after testing this new wheel we are ecstatic to say it dramatically reduces noise generated by the old rear stabilizer wheels. We believe this is such an improvement, we are offering a FREE upgrade to our customers.
Installation is easy, too! With just a few household tools and existing hardware, the change will take just a few minutes.
To get your new set of wheels, simply call (800) 727-6684, option 1, then option 2. Your wheels should arrive in about a week.
We saw an article today on Consumer.Healthday.com about wheelchair breakdowns increasing and we wanted to address some key points from the article.
In the article (which you can read here) results from a recent study published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation showed that “roughly 53% of wheelchair users reported at least one breakdown requiring repairs within six months – up from 45% between 2004 and 2006.” The study was based on results from 700 people with a spinal cord injury.
We at Redman Power Chair think this is a sad commentary on the state of the wheelchair market. What this research suggests is that some of our competitors are selling on price alone, resulting in lower quality chairs that they know Medicare and Medicaid reimburse for. While this meets the immediate needs of a large number of users, we have always built the best quality power chair available, no matter what the reimbursement amount is. It’s an important part of our mission statement – “To provide the finest standing power chair available supported by the best company in the business.”
Our chair may cost more, but we believe your quality of life is the most important thing and that the health benefits and durability of our product are well worth the extra cost. We realize not everyone can afford our chair, so as an outreach we have developed an affordable payment plan where customers can make payments on a new Redman Power Chair. This allows more people to afford a higher quality, more therapeutic reclining and standing wheelchair.
Many people who can stand do not understand the amazing benefits of being able to do so. Such as independence and the naturally occurring health benefits from changing posture. When someone is forced to sit in one position for extreme amount of time, health problems will naturally occur. In fact, physicians have been documenting the benefits of standing devices for years throughout medical publications. Now, thanks to Redman Power chair, the world’s highest quality standing wheelchair, even people with spinal cord injuries can reap the health benefits of standing.
Physical Benefits of Standing Wheelchairs
Urinary Health – Urinary Tract Infections are common among people who are in wheelchairs. However, studies have shown that using a standing device or standing wheelchair can greatly decrease urinary tract infections.
Circulation – Changing posture helps the blood circulate around the body. For example, sitting in one position causes the blood to stagnate and reduce circulation to other places of the body.
Spasticity – Staying in one position, such as sitting, can cause muscle spasticity. Changing posture helps relax the muscles and reduce spasticity.
Bowel Function – Poor bowel function is a common complaint among wheel chair users. However, according to numerous studies, standing exercises can greatly improve bowel function. Even when using a standing wheelchair these results are the same.
Pressure Sores – Pressure sores occur from constant pressure on one area of the body. Being able to stand up in a wheelchair helps distribute your weight and improve healing of bed sores.
Contractures – Sitting for long periods of time may cause the joints and muscles to stiffen. Standing allows the muscles to get stretched and exercised, decreasing the amount of stiffness you experience in joints and muscles.
Bone Density – Some evidence shows that standing wheelchairs may increase bone density. This is because standing puts more weight on your bones than sitting.
Psychological Benefits of Standing Wheelchairs
Independence – Standing is the foundation of reclaiming independence. A few examples include being able to reach cupboards, change light-bulbs, and looking into a mirror at a regular level.
Increased cognition – Better circulation often means better cognition. Standing wheelchairs may help with certain cognitive tasks such as memory and focus.
Fatigue – Sitting or lying down for too long is a known cause for fatigue. Muscles may atrophy and quickly tire. Standing up helps exercises these muscles and reduce fatigue.
Depression – Depression is often caused by feeling a lack of control over certain situations. So it is no wonder why people confined to a wheelchair may suffer from depression. However, gaining the ability to stand, even with assistance, helps reclaim a certain amount of control and helps reduce depression.
Well Being – Wellbeing is dramatically increased by using a standing wheelchair. You can be on “the same level” when talking or communicating as others. You can also make eye contact, pose for photographs, hug standing up and much more.
America’s top-selling power standing wheelchair has the ability to go off-road with its 4” ground clearance, four-wheel independent suspension, and uneven ground compensation. Eat my dust! Not only can the Redman Power Chair access your world indoors with its superior maneuverability and small footprint, but it can also go outdoors to broaden your accessibility in challenging terrain.
To illustrate the off-road capabilities of the Redman Power Chair, we have put together the Eat My Dust video to show the off-road functionality. In the video, we have outfitted our chair with the off-road drive wheels that are an available option. Even without the optional wheels, this chair is extremely capable of off-road driving. The optional wheels simply add more traction.
“We are thrilled that power chair users continue to improve the quality of their life by going anywhere, on any terrain. The innovation behind the ground clearance and suspension is something we are very proud of.”
The 4” ground clearance has always been a feature of the Redman Power Chairs and all of the chairs are hand-built in the U.S. specific to each customer’s unique needs. It has unparalleled movement and numerous physical and psychological health benefits ranging from improved circulation to increased cognition. “Without a standing wheelchair or reclining wheelchair, users can encounter health problems.” Redman continued, “We make a chair that has always been healthier for the user and it can go on uneven, rough ground while still being stable and comfortable.”
Shea Stickrod’s chair is almost 5 years old and he recently had the opportunity to come to Tucson so he paid us a visit. While he was here we gave him a tune-up and a tour of our facilities. Shea wanted to share how much the chair had changed his life and also how much he enjoyed the relationship that we have had over the years.
We are looking forward to updating Shea to a new Redman Power Chair in the near future!
If you are ever in Tucson, Arizona and would like a tour of our facility like Shea, stop by and we’ll give you a complimentary tune-up and a tour.
We put some Red in the Redman Power Chair! The new 2012 paint scheme has arrived. We added some red to our all black Redman Power Chair. Dare we compare our Redman Power Chair to a Ferrari, but we’re going to do it anyway. We hope you like our new “sporty” look with a splash of candy red on the front wheels and battery tray. It may not be as fast as a Ferrari, but now you can ride in style. Zoom into 2012 with candy red styling on your new Redman Power Chair.
