Invacare® awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015 for the new Action®5
DATE 2015, Fondettes, France. Invacare Europe is delighted to announce that their new Action5 wheelchair has been awarded the coveted Product Design Award 2015 from Red Dot. The Action5 is the latest addition to the popular Action family of wheelchairs and has been designed specifically for the more active user.
Only products that stand out clearly for quality and innovative power are awarded the highly sought‐after seal of quality from Red Dot’s judging panel – and the Action5 achieved this endorsement by winning over the 38‐member judging panel.
Helping Invacare’s Action5 to win the highly competitive award were two new, innovative patents:
The first, a unique, self‐locking, H‐shaped folding mechanism, providing an improved level of stability against other folding chairs in the marketplace, leading to a smoother driving experience for the user.
The second is a new backrest system, which allows angle adjustments to be made to the backrest whilst the user remains seated. This leads to quicker and easier fittings, with chair adjustments taking only a few seconds
Gustave Moot, Global Product Development Manager at Invacare International said: “The Action5 is further proof of Invacare’s commitment to excellence in design and build quality. We are immensely proud of the wheelchair and we believe it will become the new benchmark for stability in folding chairs. We are delighted to have won the prestigious Red Dot Award for Product Design and it is a fantastic reward for the team who have spent the last five years working hard to deliver the Action5.
