    Kuschall no longer available through Invacare in the US.

    Forget about my "insightful" analysis posted above. Invacare has decided to stop selling Kuschall's in the US. They haven't announced it yet, but a well-placed source within the company informed me of their decision a couple of days ago. They are not even fulfilling existing quotes.

      i wanted the apex myself but its not compatible w/ d's so that killed it for me

        HowIrollsports is still carrying Kuschall: https://howirollsports.com/product-c...y-wheelchairs/ Are you saying that it won't be soon?

          Learned about this yesterday. Don't know any of the behind-the-scenes reasons for Kuschall being pulled.

            It's sad, because they make a damn fine chair with some really innovative options. Less choices is never a good thing.

              It may be that they don't want to jump through all of the very expensive hoops to get newer models FDA approved as "medical devices". Most insurances in the USA require such certification and they cannot be sold as a wheelchair (medical device) without it.
