The unique Tilt Assist feature makes tilting
easier by reducing the effort required to tilt an
occupied Solara 3G or Spree 3G wheelchair by
30%. With three settings, front, middle and
rear, the simple Tilt Assist adjustments help to
correct for uneven weight distribution caused by
seating systems and other components.
The innovative Low Shear Recline
minimizes shearing forces and prevents
displacement of positioning tools such as
laterals and headrest. Used in combination
with tilt, recline can offer additional
functional and clinical benefits to users and
A durable mechanical linkage Foot-Operated
Wheel Lock is positioned at the rear of
the frame next to the Cable-Free Foot
Release for tilt which is now labeled.
Pressing 1 of the 2 levers of the wheel lock
easily locks both rear wheels.
20" and 24" Back Canes include a 10°
bend option accommodating after-market back
hardware while the back angle adjustment
location better fits after-market seating systems.

ordered with or without adjustable angle stroller

the Solara 3G wheelchair more durable. Clear
hardware indicates an adjustment point while
the black bolts are static. Our zinc-plated
fasteners resist rust corrosion better than any
other fastener in the industry.
The Contracture Footrest systems
offer great strength and adjustability.
The bilateral footplates offer inversion
and eversion while both the platform and
footplates can be adjusted laterally the
full width of the chair.
Freedom Designs, Inc. custom seating
systems can be ordered and installed on-chair
for any Invacare® rehab chair manufactured
in Ohio, including the Solara 3G and Spree 3G
wheelchairs. Invacare will bill the customer for
the chair and seating system on one invoice.
As of this date, the 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 not recommend any wheelchair
transportation systems.
