Best known for its innovative lightweight wheelchair design, Invacare knows that design, function, and weight are the three essentials when it comes to developing wheelchair products. Mastering these three aspects, the company managed to come out with something new, unique, and light.
The company introduced the latest iteration of its Action wheelchair range, which it claims to be the lightest in its Action wheelchair range. This latest model of their Action wheelchair range is the result of the company’s years of experience and market expertise.
What to expect from this new wheelchair
The new Action 5 Rigid wheelchair is based on the company’s previous wheelchair design. This latest product, which offers a choice of 10 frame colors with 3 accent colors, has been designed as an affordable and customizable wheelchair.
Weighing at 10.8 kg, the new Action 5 Rigid is light and portable, ideal for first-time and active wheelchair users. This new wheelchair offers a quick and easy setup that can be smoothly configured to suit different user’s requirements.
In terms of functionality and features, the company has added some major improvements. These include increased maneuverability and excellent drive performance in various types of environments. It also features the company’s patented backrest technology, which is adjustable in seat depth, height, and angle.
The new Action 5 Rigid wheelchair also incorporates an energy efficient, rigid frame to aid easy propulsion and wheelchair navigation. Additionally, the new wheelchair also offers a center of gravity as well as camber adjustments. This allows a range of specification that can be tuned to achieve the right fit for wheelchair users.
The company has developed two versions of this new wheelchair, the adult and the junior versions. Like the adult version of the wheelchair, the junior version features the same configurations and settings when it comes to chair adjustments.
In addition, Invacare has also made this new wheelchair compatible with the Alber, a power add-on drive for wheelchairs, to increase the range of the wheelchair users with e-pilot hand bike and Invacare e-motion product lines.
