Electric wheelchairs are great for getting around outdoors and for providing extra mobility. If they have one downside it is that inevitably the battery and electrical components add unwanted weight to the chair that can hinder its manoeuvrability. Tackling this issue head-on, with an innovative chair that blends ease-of-use with power and endurance, the new Esprit Action Chair from Invacare is a lightweight and slimline electric wheelchair. Currently available for a free trial at Active Mobility, it boasts an impressive array of features and options and is capable of providing even greater independence.
This unique chair has all the advantages of typical power chairs – with a maximum range of 14 km at 6 km/h – but in a much smaller, lighter and more flexible frame. As ideally suited for use indoors as it is outdoors, the Esprit Action Chair is an extremely lightweight wheelchair that can be dismantled with ease, making it easy to pack away and transport. Not only is it light and versatile, it also has a slimmer shape and smaller overall size, making it more flexible and easy to manoeuvre than larger, heavier electric wheelchairs.
Compact and lightweight: the Esprit Action Chair from Invacare
Available in two sizes, an adult version and a smaller junior model, the Esprit Action Chair has a new chassis structure that minimizes width and makes for a lighter, more convenient electric wheelchair. A compact battery pack, which weighs just 15kg, and lightweight removable wheels are other key features that help to ensure that this chair weighs only as much as it needs to. The wheels can be removed without tools, and there is also self-propelling option for those times when you don’t want to use the battery. Plus, intuitive pressure sensors allow for a natural switch to attendant driven mode.
For your safety, the wheels have protection bumpers and anti-tippers fitted as standard. Helping to keep the chair as narrow as possible, the motors sit discreetly inside the frame. The adaptable armrests are adjustable up to 50mm, and the adult frame has eight seat-width options; the narrowest width is little as 380 mm and the widest is 605mm. The adult frame has three seat depths between 400mm and 500mm, and is available in a choice of colours: Ocean Blue, Slate Grey, Pearl White and Anthracite Black. The junior frame has four seat width options between 305mm to 380mm and seat depths from 325mm to 375mm, and is available in Ocean Blue, Pearl White, Bubble Gum Pink and Anthracite Black.
