Why Invacare Wheelchairs Are Leading The Way

Invacare wheelchairs are now long established as being among the most trusted and respected names in wheelchair manufacture and design. They are also active in providing many other health related products, and so may be useful to anyone with more than one issue or anyone seeking relief from a health problem in more than one way. If you are looking for the latest in electrically powered solutions with range, comfort and durability all to the fore, you can do no better than consider the latest Invacare products.

These new state of the art wheelchairs are a long way removed from the chairs which were available in the early days of wheelchair design. Even after mass production made it possible for people in the general population to own wheelchairs, there were still strict limits as to what was possible. Traveling over any long distance even within the local area was difficult, as the chairs had to be operated manually, and this was difficult given the weight of the chair and the tension which had to be overcome. The chair could also not be transported easily from one place to another, limiting the number of places a disabled person could visit.

There have been two major advances in wheelchair design and build in recent times, and combined together they make a huge difference to the lives of disabled people. The first innovation was the folding wheelchair, which was only possible once metal alloys had been developed that would allow strength to be compared with lightness. Invacare chairs can be folded, allowing the user to store them in a motor vehicle or even to take them on an airplane flight. The light folding chairs can quickly be put back together again, so that they can be used in the area to which the disabled person has traveled.

The main advantage of choosing Invacare wheelchairs as your way of getting about is that they have the latest electrical power technology. The top end reveal power wheelchair is one of the most advanced money can buy, and it will give you a high range for little weight. The batteries of the past were bulky and could only go short distances before they needed charging again. Modern batteries using new lithium ion technology are able to last far longer, and are a mere fraction of the weight. Battery technology will improve still further in the coming years, with stackable batteries offering theoretically unlimited power and range.

The best place to buy a high class Invacare wheelchair is through an established licensed dealer. The dealer will be able to give you a free demonstration and trial so that you can see whether the chair will be a good fit. Even a perfectly good chair can cause difficulties if the person's body is simply not the right size or shape. There are several adjustable settings on a powered wheelchair, but still there are going to be some chairs which will feel more comfortable than others. There is no substitute for an in house demonstration, especially if you are buying a high end model.

You can also buy used Invacare wheelchairs, but these are unlikely to be the latest model. People will often change their wheelchair when a new model comes out with changes which are significantly different, and if you can be in the right place at the right time you can often pick up a bargain on the old chair which is going to be traded in. These deals are rare, but they do exist. If you want an older model, you can find many Internet auction shops offering Invacare wheelchairs.
