Invacare® updates the renowned Kite® powerchair

Global brand leader Invacare is raising the bar in the manufacture and supply of mobility and independent living equipment with the refresh of its popular Kite powerchair. Not content with the already outstanding German engineered powerchair, Invacare aspired to make it even better by integrating: new technology with more colour options.

The Invacare Kite now allows you to customise the powerchair around the personality of the user thanks to a wider variety of colour options. There are 7 stylish shroud colour options, 2 frame colours and 3 rim colours now available to choose from. To customise the chair further, a heavy duty power pack, including 4-pole motors and 120A power module, are available (as an option) to make the Kite more powerful, while larger batteries are available for increased range.
This remarkable chair is truly modular and can be configured precisely to the user. The ModuliteTM seating system consists of a telescopic seat frame and side rail to allow quick and easy placement of individual armrests and accessories. The different types of Matrx® backs can then be combined with the Modulite seat system to give the user optimal postural support and positioning.
The Invacare Kite also boasts an exceptionally smooth and comfortable drive thanks to the new optional smooth-drive front castors, superb suspension system and the integrated technologies built into the system:

•        The patented Dual Swing Technology (D.S.T.)® allows the chair to flow freely over uneven ground while the Polymer blocks absorb these bumps to give a comfortable, carefree drive

•        The LiNX® control system makes going through doorways or approaching tables simple and straightforward thanks to its low speed and creep control. LiNX also improves hold on slopes and reduces castor lock on soft surfaces, relieving any concerns for the user

•        The optional LiNX G-Trac® technology detects and corrects the smallest deviations from the intended path, caused by a surface change for example, and reduces the number of corrective actions needed
