Offers excellent seating comfort and many adjustment possibilities!

The Rea Azalea is the natural choice for the moderately active user as well as for the more passive one. The comfortable seating system allows the user to alter the seat position, ensuring maximum comfort at all times. This combined with good driving characteristics makes Azalea the ideal choice. Azalea is a self propelling wheelchair with large rear wheels, and is complimented with an alternative transit version that keeps the same frame but with small rear wheels called Rea Azalea Assist. The new backrest, Flex 3, is multi adjustable in height, width and shape for different body forms.


Info & Options


Maximised seating comfort and adjustments as key features
With a combination of comfortable seating, easy adjustable seat angle and backrest recline and the possibility for self propelling or pushed by an attendant plus all the size adjustments makes the Rea Azalea the natural choice when selecting a passive wheelchair.

Innumerable possibilities
With three different frame sizes , a range of seat widths from 37 to 59 cm can be achieved. The wheelchair has individual width adjustments in the armrests and leg rest attachments as standard.

Tilt & recline makes life comfortable
The Rea Azalea and Rea Azalea Assist have a 25 degree seat tilt respectively and a 30 degree backrest recline. Both tilt and recline can be easily adjusted manually or electrically by the assistant and also by the user for the electrical version.

The backrest has a biomechanical positioning hinge, which follows the user's natural back movement when adjusting the backrest angle. Combined with the seat-tilt function, the DSS (Dual Stability System) helps to prevent Decubitus thanks to its nonfriction re-body positioning.

DSS - Dual Stability System
Passive wheelchair users are heavily dependent on their wheelchair and require a great deal of assistance from attendants in their daily life. To address these needs, Invacare Passive wheelchairs feature the Dual Stability System, known as ‘DSS', which offers two vital features:
  • Body length compensation
  • Weight shifting
The beauty of this system is that when the seat tilts, it moves downwards and forwards, retaining stability despite the backwards leaning position; the seat simply slides in-between the chassis.
