Invacare Action 3NG

The Action 3NG is a market-leading wheelchair - with an extensive range of options, it is bespoke built to provide you with a level of comfort, function and style far exceeding what other manual chairs offer.

Product Description

The Action 3NG differs from standard manual wheelchairs in that each one is individually prescribed following an assessment. This allows it to be perfectly sized for you, and also to be customised from a vast range of options to suit your lifestyle in a way that "out of the box" wheelchairs just cannot manage.

The options are far too vast to list them all, but include the following:

  • Propulsion - self-propelled or transit.

  • Sizing - seat width, depth and height for a perfect fit.

  • Cushions - from a basic foam cushion to a range of Invacare and third-party cushions for high levels of comfort and pressure-relief.

  • Backrest - choice of upholsteries, including tension-adjustable backrests for higher levels of support, reclining backrests, folding ones, and height adjustable push handles.

  • Legrests - standard swing-away legrests at a choice of angles, elevating legrests, one-piece footplates, and amputee supports.

  • Armrests - swing away ones, T-style removable armrests, and a choice of standard or short "desk" armpads.

  • Positioning accessories - headrests, lateral supports and Bodypoint belts.

  • Wheels - puncture resistant or solid tyres, plastic-coated handrims, different sized castor wheels.

  • Frame colours - 8 to choose from as standard, but any available at an upcharge, resulting in a wheelchair personalised to your style.

  • Functional options - anti-tips, step tubes, tray tables cane holders.

Despite all these options, the Action 3NG remains a light, practical wheelchair - easy to fold and transport in your car.

There are a few other variants of the Action 3NG available - a one-arm drive version for those self-propelling with just one arm, a Compact version for people needing smaller seat widths, and the Light version that offers further weight savings.

Our Verdict

As you can see, the Action 3NG will provide a far better match to your lifestyle than other wheelchairs, and it offers unrivalled comfort. As a modular chair, it can also accommodate changing needs, ensuring it provides a tailored fit both now and in the future.

The Action 3NG is rightly the market leader for a prescriptive, built-to-order lightweight manual wheelchair, and is widely supplied by the NHS for this reason. For those who find a basic manual wheelchair just doesn't do what they want, we would strongly recommend the Action 3NG.

However, it is possible to get a fully functioning and desirable chair at the base price!

Manual wheelchairs such as this will normally qualify for zero-rated VAT.
