MK6i is our newest series of power wheelchair electronics, and includes benefits for the Power Chair Client and Funder alike.

MK6i electronics include new driver controls with larger brighter LCD screens, a new easier to read display, intuitive programming options, a memory card, and new programmable features bringing increased independence to the user.

Best of all, it is based on the MK5 electronics platform to allow a smooth transition. If you can program MK5 electronics, you will be able to program MK6i. The MK6i platform will be introduced as the standard electronics system and will replace the MKIV and MK5 systems on a number of the Invacare Power Wheelchairs.

For a Mk6i software updater kit, please contact Technical Service

Currrently available on the new TDX SP Power Wheelchair.
