Best Budget Active Sports Wheelchair

What is an active user wheelchair?

There are many different active chairs to choose from and deciding which one would be best to suit your needs can be difficult. That’s why, at Invictus Active we offer a free, no-obligation measuring and advice service that can help you to make the right choice.

It is basically a wheelchair that allows you to be as active as possible. That means that you self-propel, instead of being pushed or having a motor. An active wheelchair is lightweight and manoeuvrable so that you can get to where you want to go. Also, many active wheelchairs are designed to make it easy to transfer either into a vehicle, or onto a seat, bed, or the toilet. Many have specific features that enable you to enjoy a more active lifestyle, with fewer limitations.

At Invictus Active we carry these models in this category. The Quickie Life R starts out at £1150 and the versatile folding version, the Life F, costs just a couple of hundred pounds more. At the top end of the range, the Quickie Helium and the Kuschall K-series are great options. One of these chairs can cost up to £2000.

All of these active user wheelchairs come in different sizes to perfectly fit your body and increase your pushing power and your comfort. Taking the correct measurements is vital to purchase the best budget active sport wheelchair for you. A correctly fitting chair is easier to push, creates less fatigue, and is more comfortable all around. For that reason, we offer you a complete measuring guidance service. Additionally, we can help you to choose the right materials, options, and accessories to create a chair that meets your current needs and can even adjust to changing needs over time.

An active user wheelchair is a big investment

You can customise these chairs to not only suit your needs but also your taste. They come in a wide range of colour combinations and you can even choose unique decals to make your chair truly your own. If you are looking for a chair that offers great performance for an active lifestyle along with cool looks let us assist you in choosing the right chair for you.

Even a fairly basic chair carries quite a hefty price tag and the more technology that you choose will set the price higher. At Invictus Active we offer a split payment option so that you can spread out the cost of your perfect chair over a period of time. Additionally, we can offer information about possible funding from different charities.
