The Ben NG Transit Wheelchair is suitable for those who can’t self-propel themselves in a wheelchair. Well known for its simple and easy-to-use functionality, it is considered one of the most durable and reliable frame designs.
Ideal for storage and transportation with a compact foldable chassis, folding backposts, and swing-away legrests, ensuring the Invacare Ben NG supports individuals’ everyday activities and lifestyles.
This wheelchair is crash-tested, so compatible for use inside a vehicle such as an ambulance, minibus, taxi or car, whilst the service user remains in the seat. It has anchor points, so the wheelchair can be secured into place with straps, meaning the wheelchair will not move in the event of an accident.
Customisable options: Available in the standard Ben NG specification (transit or self-propelled) and a heavy-duty specification with a reinforced frame, the Invacare Ben NG caters for most individuals who require a manual wheelchair for short-term use.
A wide range of options are available, from cushions to extended backrests and headrests for added support and comfort. Contact our equipment experts to discuss the various options that suit your individual needs and requirements.
Modular rear wheel position: Thanks to the removable rear wheel support you can transform your Ben NG transit into a self-propulsion version and vice versa.
Compactness: The lightweight folding frame, backrest and legrest reduce the overall size when folded, making it very compact for transportation or storage.
Heavy Duty version: A heavy-duty version is available, ideal for users weighing up to 160 kg user. Available in both self-propulsion and transit versions.
