One of the biggest mistakes a person can make when they first begin using a wheelchair is to request all of the bells and whistles they can possibly find to be added to their new set of wheels. All it takes is one day of pushing a 35 lb. chair to convince you that lighter is better. That’s why Wheel:Life is sharing a fantastic new option that is lightweight and constructed right here in the US.
The Invacare® Top End® Reveal™ Wheelchair is the latest ultra-lightweight performance rigid wheelchair in the Top End® wheelchair family. It combines modern design and essential adjustments with overall exceptional value. Tailored to fit, the Reveal wheelchair ensures the best wheel access and efficiency by adjusting the center-of-gravity, rear seat height, caster angle, caster placement or back angle.
The Reveal™ wheelchair also employs the latest frame material technology, 7005 aluminum, ensuring a smooth and energy-efficient ride. Used in the cycling and aerospace industries, this material helps to increase the chair’s overall rigidity and strength without increasing the overall chair weight. This open frame design is super lightweight at a mere 19.71 lb., making the chair more compact than a full frame and easy to transport.
You also have a world of customization possibilities with your Invacare® Top End® Reveal™ Wheelchair, including a color that fits with your personal taste. When it comes to mobility products, color is the most individualized option on the market today, and Invacare doesn’t limit your imagination when designing your next chair.
From Grasshopper Green to Electric Red, the Reveal wheelchair has a color option that appeals to everyone! So whether you are making a fashion statement, matching your favorite sports team or simply making a neutral choice, there’s a color that just right for you in the Reveal design scheme.
