ABOUT INVICTUS ACTIVE
Founded by Scott Smith and Paul Cooksey, both full time wheelchairs users, we have tried and tested each solution and believe in the products we have available – from the fantastic freewheel to brand new innovative ways to exercise, like our very own Invictus Active Trainer.
Here at Invictus Active we have a range of solutions that we hope will make a difference to your lifestyle – we call these ‘lifestyle solutions’. Using these you will be able to keep active and reap the benefits that an active lifestyle brings.
The word ‘Invictus’ is latin for ‘unconquered’ or ‘invincible’ and also the title of a Victorian Poem by William Ernest Henley. Published in 1888 the poem describes his strength in the face of adversity and that nothing was going to stop him. You can listen and read the poem here.
We have a small team but always try to help as best we can and dispatch products as quickly as possible. Feel free to ask us any questions you may have – whether this is about our products, how we can help you improve your fitness or even our experiences as wheelchair users in general.

2021 heralds another exciting year of further enhancements to our existing product range as well as the development of brand new products to add to our existing lifestyle solutions, equipment and accessories.
In our usual fashion we will try to maintain our ethos of enabling any new developments to be ‘bolted onto’ our existing designs allowing our loyal customers to upgrade and improve rather than feeling left behind and penalised for helping pioneering the Invictus Active brand, we have all felt that way in the past with our laptops and phones!
Amongst some of the solutions currently under development are enhanced online interaction (EOi), (imagine being able to go online and competing head to head against a friend sat on their trainer on the other side of the world!…) We are also developing a range of wheelchair sports trainers covering court sports like tennis, basketball, rugby as well as racing chair trainers that can be used as a static trainer or transported to a trackside for warm up and cool down routines.
Very helpful. I’ve order a couple times from this company. The trainers and freewheel of which the folk working there were all to willing to help out any way possible when issues arose. Postage never let’s me down, they are fast to post with great packaging so item get to its destination safely.
Would definitely recommend.
Having purchased a Freewheel a while ago through Invictus Active via eBay I have to say the service was top notch. Fast delivery when needed allowed time to take part in a family trip I wouldn’t have been able to previously. I have since purchased an Invictus Active trainer (through a different mobility shop) but find it absolutely invaluable now. A big thanks to the man behind the design/product for giving us wheelchair users a way to improve our health & fitness as I find we are too often overlooked or outpriced. A fantastic team with a store to match, I’m hopefully going to be buying a new wheelchair through these guys in the near future. Thanks guys!
I bought the Invictus active rollers last year and they are probably the best purchase I made all year. Yes, I still need the motivation, but having these, that can be set up and used at home is ideal. I even did a 10 km sponsored roll to raise money for Alzheimer’s society.
Scott at Invictus was great throughout my purchase of a Quickie Helium. He went above and beyond to make sure the wheelchair was right for me. I highly recommend them as a company. You’re in safe hands. They answered all of my queries promptly and accurately. I love my Helium chair. It is extremely lightweight and very customisable. I had an Action2 chair (that I nicknamed ‘The Tank’) before this and the difference is astounding. I now have a chair that fits me properly and is much easier to manoeuvre. I am also able to quickly pop my wheels off and then sit the chair on the back seat of my car. It has honestly changed my life for the better. I didn’t think that having a custom made chair would make this much difference, but it really has. I have a lot more confidence going out now. Thank you so so much to Scott and the team!!
Bought a freewheel with folding wheelchair extras and multi coloured spokes. Arrived promptly and has improved my access to loads of places, great over gravel and stones and bonus makes my folding chair feel rigid
