- Passive wheelchairs, for extra support
- Low and Medium Active wheelchairs, from basic to high configurations (particularly noted for the Invacare Action NG range of wheelchairs).
- Active wheelchairs, designed for greater activity and including the Titanium XLT and Kuschall ranges.
- Sports wheelchairs, which are custom built and are the top end range.
- Paediatric wheelchairs for children and teenagers.
Invacare Electric Wheelchairs
Invacare’s power wheelchairs will give you maximum comfort and greater mobility and are custom made to suit every need. Your height and weight and mobility needs are all taken into consideration with the range. This makes it easier for you to pick the wheelchair that will perfectly suit you, as it is such an important decision to make.
Outdoor/indoor power wheelchairs have a variety of front, back and central wheel drives and are designed for outdoor living and mobility. They also have great suspension.
Indoor/outdoor power wheelchairs are compact and have a smaller wheel type. These wheelchairs are very versatile.
There are also indoor wheelchairs, designed for the indoors only.
