Features & Options

Light and transportable
Already the lightest wheelchair in its field, the Action3NG can be made lighter again by using the optional lightweight castor housing and lightweight wheels, potentially reducing the overall weight by 1.2 kg. Complementing the low transfer weight, the chair also has a foldable backrest, allowing it to be easily folded and dismantled, making it transportable in even the smallest of cars.
Comfort and functionality
The special cross bar folding mechanism, improves stability and makes folding and unfolding even easier. Together with a new release lever – to increase the ease of flipping up the armrests – the Action3NG is a great choice for all-round maximum comfort.
Adaptable and modular
Cross-compatible features across the Action Family of chairs and accessories mean that each chair is adaptable and modular. Therefore, the Action3NG is well equipped to accommodate changes in individual needs over time, simple to refurbish and has access to a wide range of customisation options.
Tailored to fit
A new, increased colour range and an improved backrest cover design bring even more opportunities for individuals to tailor the chair to fit. The new backrest cover overlaps the back canes for added comfort and the backrest now includes a removable lumbar support to give greater support where required.
With a basic weight from 14.2 kg and a transportation weight of 7.5 kg (without legrests, armrests or rear wheels) the Action3NG addresses key needs for handling, storage and transportation. In addition, with the new lightweight options, the basic weight can be further reduced to a low 13 kg.
