Tilt & recline makes life comfortable

DSS - Dual Stability System
Passive wheelchair users are heavily dependent on their wheelchair and require a great deal of assistance from attendants in their daily life. To address these needs, Invacare Passive wheelchairs feature the Dual Stability System, known as ‘DSS', which offers two vital features:
- Body length compensation
- Weight shifting
The beauty of this system is that when the seat tilts, it moves downwards and forwards, retaining stability despite the backwards leaning position; the seat simply slides in-between the chassis.
