Invacare’s LiNX 3 Gets New Features

Invacare Corp.’s LiNX 3 electronics system has received upgraded functionality.

In a Jan. 13 news announcement, Invacare said the LiNX 3 now generates audible cues — beeping sounds that help to inform power wheelchair users about which drives and seating profiles they’re using.

Upgrades also include joystick shaping, so seating team members can “shape the field of the joystick engagement (throw) to match the hand movement of the end user.”

And the seating team can create a grid (“grid navigation”) to set up quadrants in the joystick engagement.

Joost Beltman, Invacare’s Senior VP and GM of North America, said in the announcement, “These new features represent yet another example of how Invacare is using advanced technology to provide industry-leading solutions for our customers. Backed by our strong culture of innovation, Invacare is committed to remaining at the forefront of adopting technologies that strengthen our expansive portfolio of products and ultimately performance for end users.”
