Award-winning power wheelchairs highlight the Company’s unrivalled commitment to extensive research and continuous improvement.
New Colour Screen Joystick
This new colour joystick will replace the existing monochrome display screen on all Invacare power wheelchairs. The use of a colour display on the MPJ+ joystick does more than simply provide improved aesthetics. Colour is employed to the user’s advantage as it will help designate drive mode and status. New icons will be easier to view, and more intuitive to understand, and background colours are even programmable to allow choice for viewing indoors and outdoors. New features of this new MPJ joystick include a real time clock and improved battery diagnostics. It is compatible with existing Invacare power chairs using MK6 electronics.
G-Trac® functions just like an electronic compass by greatly improving track performance and traction. Whether driving at higher speed outdoors or at a slower pace indoors, Invacare’s G-Trac® technology is similar to the ESP function found in modern cars, adding new levels of user control and providing a safe and consistent driving experience. Obstacles, inclined footpaths, slopes and slippery ground all reduce wheelchair’s intended path. The frequent steering corrections required to stay on course can be tiring and can lead to loss of control. G-Trac® helps drivers follow a straighter path with fewer corrections so users truly feel they are controlling their environment, not the other way around.
SureStep ultimately allows for a smoother transition down from obstacles. The rear low pivots aids in obstacle climbing. Front high pivots keep the chair stable. The downward travel makes coming off an obstacle effortless and nearly silent.
True Centre-Wheel Drive
The tightest possible turning radius comes from the True Center- Wheel Drive chassis. The Invacare TDX® range uses this type of wheelbase to provide excellent manoeuvrability and an intuitive driving experience. This technology combined with Enhanced SureStep®, Traction Control Design and Quiet Stability Lock makes the TDX a great indoor and outdoor chair.
