Invacare Rea Azalea Assist : pearl grey frame. Cost £2265 new.
With choice of either standard footrests (main photo) or a single footplate (see photo 2). Tensioning backrest and pressure relief cushion. With user manual.
I bought this wheelchair from Yorkshire Care Equipment for my mum in September 2018. It had very light (almost exclusively indoor) use for just 12 months - I am only now getting round to selling it. Original cost: £2265 (ex VAT) so you would be getting a top of the range chair at a bargain price. Still has label and protective foam on crossbar.
Comes with the Flex 3 tension adjustable backrest so it can be configured to accommodate individual postures for maximum support and comfort, a Floshape seat cushion (high density foam that allows greater pressure re-distribution and is suitable for 'at risk' users) and your choice of two alternative swing away foot and leg rests (a one piece bar or a two footplate option) decide which suits you best. The leg rests elevate and are angle adustable.
The chair is suited to those wanting a comfortable, extended use wheelchair with pressure relief and/or those needing a higher level of postural support. Frame size is Medium (see spec below) in pearl grey with black dartex seat covers; all covers (head and arm rests, seat etc) zip off and are machine washable. It has a full range of adjustments, making it highly customisable.
The Azalea is the market leading tilt in space wheelchair and the top choice of medical professionals. It has been designed and manufactured to the highest standards and provides exceptional comfort and levels of support.
It can be tilted to aid with pressure relief and assist with hoisting, if required (chair arms are also removable). The backrest can be reclined to 30°, which when combined with the tilt and elevating leg rests, allows the wheelchair user to lie back in the chair. Tilt and recline are adjusted by gas pistons for effortless positioning. The chair's unique Dual Stability System incorporates weight shifting when tilting and reclining for additional comfort, safety and user confidence. It has adjustable padded headrest and armrests, removable cushioning, calf support on legrests, hub brakes and puncture proof tyres.
This is the transit version of the Rea Azalea (pushed rather than self propelled). The push bar and handles can be adjusted to suit whoever is pushing the chair.
Optional extras are available for you to buy, such as a swing away tray table allowing the user to eat comfortably (or read/work on a hobby) whilst in the chair - and even a power pack if you needed to take the strain out of pushing it.
It is fully crash tested for occupied transport in a suitably adapted vehicle (ISO 7176-19).
