MK6i
™
Electronics
MK Series electronics are the benchmark in power wheelchair
electronics. This is the result of Invacare’s many years of experience
in the design and manufacture of these electronics specifically for
the needs of wheelchair users.
MK6i electronics take the MK Series to the next level by offering features that are easier to use than any other MK Series electronics system.
Advantages of MK6i electronics include:
• Based on the Invacare® MK5™ programming logic, so users don’t need to learn
a new system
• Reduced set up and programming time with the memory card feature
• Improved simplicity with universal connectors
• Better information for programmers and technicians

MK6i™ Controllers
MK6i electronics take a different approach
to expandability. Under previous electronic
systems, the brain of the system was located
in the controller so the “expandability” of the
system was dependent upon the controller.
In MK6i electronics, the controller drives the
motors and the system memory is located in
options such as the driver controls.

INVACARE® STORM SERIES®
TrueTrack
Technology
Gearless-Brushless GB™ Motors
Invacare® GB™ motors are not only a key component of the
TrueTrack technology, the design is 75% efficient resulting in 17%
more battery range than Invacare’s 4-pole motors. Battery range is
an important feature for active users and users requiring powered
seating systems.
TrueTrack Technology
The patented TrueTrack technology features GB motors and
motor controller. This feature helps keep the power wheelchair
on a true forward path – even on many slopes, thresholds and
uneven terrains. TrueTrack minimizes the need for veer correction,
diminishing fatigue for joystick and switch drivers.
TrueTrack Technology is beneficial for the client for the
following reasons:
• As the power wheelchair holds a truer course, the driver needs to
make fewer course corrections. This makes driving more efficient
by reducing the necessary amount of movement. Reducing the
required movement can increase overall speed (i.e. the client may
be able to move down a hallway faster, as less compensatory
movements are required), decrease fatigue and promote safety/
independence while driving, because the chair is not pulled off
course. This is true for drivers using a proportional control as well
as a digital or non-proportional system.
• This feature is critical for clients who fatigue
easily, as less compensatory movements are
required.
• This feature also is critical for clients who use a
non-proportional or digital access method (i.e. a
head array with proximity switches or pneumatic
sip-n-puff controls). Driving with switches can
be very tedious and inefficient. Making frequent
course corrections significantly increases the
effort, time and energy required. Fewer course
corrections translates to a more efficient, safer
driver.

INVACARE® STORM SERIES®
Transport Tie-Down Options
The Invacare transport tie-down options TRRO and TRBKTS go beyond the traditional
“securement” brackets on other wheelchair designs. The transport tie-down options
include four tie-down locations that are clearly marked for the caregiver to see.
The options also include a battery securement system that prevents batteries from
becoming dislodged in the case of an accident.
Invacare order forms will include two transport tie-down selections, TRRO* and
TRBKTS. All Invacare® wheelchairs with TRRO have been tested and passed the ANSI/
RESNA WC Vol. 1 Section 19 standard using a specific seating system and configuration. TRBKTS includes four factory-installed wheelchair transport brackets. TRBKTS has not been crash-tested in accordance with WC 19.
Use these transport brackets only to secure an unoccupied wheelchair during transport. See order forms and the owners manual for more
information.
* TRRO includes four factory-installed transport brackets and a wheelchair anchored pelvic belt. TRRO has been crash-tested in accordance with ANSI/RESNA WC Vol 1. Section 19 Frontal Impact
Test requirements for wheelchairs with a 168 lb. crash dummy, which corresponds to a person with a weight of 114 to 209 lb.
As of this date, the U.S. Department of Transportation has not approved any tie-down systems for transportation of a user while in a wheelchair, in a moving vehicle of any type. It is Invacare’s
position that users of wheelchairs should be transferred into appropriate seating in vehicles for transportation and use be made of the restraints made available by the auto industry. Invacare cannot
and does notrecommend any wheelchair transportation systems.
