Invacare Fox Powerchair
The Fox an impressive rear-wheel drive powerchair from Invacare that strikes a balance between affordability and customisation, coming in as cheaper than fully configurable powerchairs, yet with more options than more basic "out of the box" models. Compact and powerful, it is equally capable indoors and out. It is also now available with advanced Modulite seating to cater for those with more advanced seats.
Sitting midway between standard rear-wheel drive chairs, such as the Roma Marbella, and more advanced configurable ones like the Invacare Bora, the Invacare Fox offers the best of both. Far more affordable than fully configurable powerchairs, the Fox nonetheless has a large range of options, allowing it to be set up to your needs. This includes adjustable seat width and depth, tension adjustable backrest, a comfort headrest, different armrest and legrest options, as well as fixed seat tilt and a manual backrest recliner. These small adjustments add up to allow the Fox to offer far more comfort than that found on "one size fits all" products.
Invacare's leading Modulite seating system is now available on the Fox. While slightly more expensive than the standard seating, this allows an even more precise fit to be achieved, while more advanced pressure care and postural support can be provided with the range of Matrx cushions and backrests. Powered 30° recline can also be added if required. Additionally, a Teens Modulite version is available for younger users, in seat widths of 12 - 15" and depths of 12 - 22", to accommodate the body shape of adolescents.
Usable both inside and outside, the Fox is one of the narrowest powerchairs available, allowing it to manoeuvre through tight spaces. Capable outdoors too, it has the option of a kerb-climber, as well as for upgraded batteries of up to 50Ah that give a stand-out 25 mile range. Another interesting addition that shows the thought put into the Fox's design is castor locks, which keep them straight when reversing down a ramp.
The Fox features Invacare's modern LinX controls, which adapt to your driving style and the environment, to allow easy and precise control. Attendant controls or dual user-attendant controls are also available, allowing a carer to control the wheelchair if required.
The Fox boasts a unique folding design, which allows the back to be folded down, or the seat to be removed entirely. The base can then be folded up to make it more compact. Additionally, the entire wheelchair can be folded up , allowing it to be manually tipped and manoeuvred like a trolley. While these are not something one would want to do on a regular basis, and the weight of the wheelchair means it can't easily be lifted into a vehicle, it does make it easier to transport with the assistance of ramps, or to store if space is a constraint.
Finally, the Invacare Fox has a smart modern appearance, with stylish silver aluminium rear wheels, as well as a choice of shroud colours.
Overall, the Fox is an ideal powerchair for people after an affordable rear-wheel drive chair with more personalisation options than "out of the box" models, or for those after Invacare's configurable Modulite seating on a less expensive model. It is also suitable for those after a powerchair that can be disassembled for transport on occasion, or who have limited storage space. Its closest competitor is Sunrise Medical's Quickie Q100 R, which while slightly more expensive, is more compact and better performing outdoors.
