Invacare believes that with the right equipment it is possible for everyone to participate in life’s experiences and this ethos forms a fundamental part of Invacare’s brand values. For many, that is as simple as living independently at home for as long as possible or, for some its the freedom to go out and about or participate in more active hobbies and sports.
Dr. Havi's Story
Dr. Havi had been anxious about flying with a respiratory condition that made it impossible to buy travel insurance. Invacare Business Delvelopment Manager, along with the Platinum Mobile came to her rescue.
"I used it at the airport and during the holiday; every day for two weeks. I took it with me in the car, on the beach and while walking my husband carried it in his backpack, even in the rain! It was entirely reliable and continued to impress me with its light weight, nifty and durable design."

Multiple Paralympic medallist and current World Masters Doubles holder Lucy Shuker represents Invacare as a sports ambassador.
“Playing at such a high level as a P4 paraplegic, having a chair that could be tweaked to particular specifications was essential to meet my needs in regards to manoeuvring and speed. I need to be 100% secure in my chair and Top End allows this.”

Until recently, Dave relied on a power chair to get around but due to a recent health scare, he decided he needed to become more active and independent so he switched back to a manual wheelchair with power-assist wheels.
"I’m 65 years old and although I’ve had a few goes in getting to grips with the emotion wheels, I now feel more confident that they will assist me in changing my lifestyle and get me fitter."

Other than a couple of shopping trips, Peter hadn't really given his new powerchair a good run. However a recent trip to Eastbourne was the ideal opportunity to really test it out.
"The weather was great and the freedom my new Invacare TDX SP2 chair gave to both my wife and I was amazing. Now free of struggling to push my manual chair, Diane could walk at her own speed and go into any shops she wished without having to worry about me."
