Looking For A Wheelchair? Invacare Electric Wheel Chairs

Mar 29, 2008
Invacare Electric wheel chairs and scooters come in many different sizes and varieties to fit your personal needs. Invacare sells a variety of products, from canes to electric scooters, to assist with mobility. Because of the wide array of medical products that Invacare has available, it is easy to find a local supplier if you need parts or accessories. Invacare electric wheel chairs are available in pediatric size through adult including obese adult capacity.

Pediatric electric wheel chairs, such as Invacare Pronto M71 jr., are built with the user in mind. This chair has an expandable seat so the chair can grow with the child. The controls are customizable so the chair can be controlled by a child. As with the other chairs in this series the chair can recline/tilt for comfort.

Invacare electric wheelchairs electronics are designed for ease of use. Chairs can be set-up for left hand or right hand control. Specialized controls made to fit the needs of the chair owner are available. Speed controls that increase or decrease the pace of the chair are included on the controls.

The safety tie-downs that hold your electric wheelchair in place while you go for a ride in your vehicle (or in the school bus) have been tested and the transport tie-down options on Invacare electric wheel chairs are safer then traditional brackets used on other chairs. These tie-downs have been crash-tested and the tie-down locations are clearly marked for ease of use.

Playing outdoors on rough terrain is made possible with the surestep® technology. Electric wheelchairs with surestep® technology can climb over small curbs and even up into the neighbor's lush lawn to play tag (but you have to supply the neighbor kids to play tag with). Surestep® is a patented automatic system that helps to keep the ride as smooth as possible while climbing over rocks, bumps, and small curbs. Don't be jealous if you aren't a child anymore, Invacare has adult size models with these features as well.

In fact, the features don't stop there. Invacare electric wheelchairs can be customized to fit your personal needs. Invacare has chairs with features to help you to be independent. If you need to reach things from the top shelf frequently the Tarsys® elevating seat on the Pronto™R2 Power Wheelchair may be right for you.

The Invacare line includes chairs that are front-wheel drive, back-wheel drive, and center-wheel drive. To decide on the type that fits you best you need to evaluate how you are going to use your chair. Center-drive chairs have a small turn radius, this makes them a popular choice for indoor-use.

Fold-able travel chairs are made to be lighter so you can take them with you in the car. These chairs aren't made for using all day every day. Travel chairs are made for trips to the store, the doctor's office, and for taking with you on a short vacation. Travel chairs include the Invacare P9000 XDT, the Invacare Nutron R51 and the Invacare Nutron R51 LXP Folding Power Wheelchair- all three of these have rear-wheel drive. The Nutron R51 LXP can go as fast as 6 MPH so you can keep up with your family on vacation.

Many of the Invacare electric wheelchairs break down into 7 pieces for travel, this isn't the same as a travel chair. Even though these break down they are still difficult to transport. On top of that, putting the 7 pieces back together takes time while the travel chairs just unfold and the chair is ready to use.

The seats on Invacare electric wheelchairs can be customized to fit your needs. Reclining seats go anywhere from a slight tilt to fully laying down. Foot rests are also able to be used in many different positions. The height adjustment available on some chairs makes getting in and out of the chair easier. Adjust the chair to match the height of the surface you are getting on or off of and you can easily slide in or out of the chair.

Invacare also has a line of motorized medical scooters for people who like to go on walks or are out and about often. If you are in need of a motorized chair for primarily outdoor use along with grocery shopping and other related activities a medical scooter might be what you are looking for.
