The arrival of the new Action 2 NG self propelled wheelchair from Invacare is welcomed. It is based on the very popular tried and tested original Action model retaining its excellent driving abilities.
The Action 2 self propelled wheelchair weighs 16.2 kilos and has a very stable folding frame. The rigidity of the frame makes it very easy to handle by both the user or the attendee. The changes on the new model are subtle but very worthwhile. The front castors have been mounted on the outside of the frame to provide more width for the footrests which improves ease of transfer and is popular with users who foot pedal.
This wheelchair has an adjustable height frame
The centre of gravity is adjustable thanks to the newly designed mounting plate that can be adjusted to suit in one of three height positions. Anti tippers are fitted at the rear of the chair to improve safety and assist raising of the wheelchair to mount kerbs or steps.
The Action 2 is available in 15" 16" 17" 18" and 19" seat widths and comes with an anthracite black frame and black nylon upholstery.
