Invacare, the global market-leading medical device and disability equipment manufacturer is revolutionising the controls market with its full range of new LiNX control technology, featuring the first touchscreen remotes for powered wheelchairs. LiNX has harnessed the touchscreen technology to offer innovative remotes featuring 3.5” LCD displays, Bluetooth connectivity and wireless programming.
The technology has been developed after extensive research involving healthcare professionals and consumers. LiNX is an ‘insight inspired’ control system that provides an unrivalled drive performance, and with its intelligent technology, the system will learn and adapt to driver habits over time to give a consistent performance for the lifetime of a powerchair.
LiNX features wireless programming for quick and simple control set up, dramatically reducing assessment and handover times. With LiNX, any adjustments made to driving set up, however minor, can be made wirelessly via Bluetooth while the chair is being driven, providing instant feedback. Everyone can experience a more interactive and personal service tailored to suit individual driving abilities.
An exciting first for Invacare is the MyLiNX web portal and App. The cloud-based portal provides access to diagnostic data available from every LiNX powerchair using the app. Access to this software will enable Retailers, Providers and healthcare professionals to have complete visibility of a powerchair’s performance data such as usage, fault history, battery charging patterns and much more.
The MyLiNX app allows customers to see the health status of a powerchair. By using Bluetooth to connect the LiNX control to a smart device, the app will show battery charge, drive time, system faults with suggested remedies. MyLiNX will increase customer’s confidence knowing that a quick check of their smart device will let them know how their powerchair is performing.
LiNX is compatible with an extensive range of specialist controls, both proportional and
non-proportional, to offer solutions for the more complex mobility requirements.
LiNX intelligent technology combined with an extensive range of power wheelbase options, Modulite seating system and exciting new colours, has created a range of LiNX SMART powerchairs to offer a whole new level of personal service and customisation, creating mobility solutions for everyone.
