TOP END INNOVATIONS INTRODUCED AT ATLANTA SHOW

 ATLANTA, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Top End by Action(TM), a subsidiary of Invacare Corporation (NASDAQ/NMS: IVCR) today introduced three exciting product enhancements at the National Home Health Care Exposition (NHHCE). Top End manufactures lightweight sports and recreation equipment for people with physical disabilities.
 "The most exciting aspect of our Top End by Action(TM) products is their engineering superiority," said Lou Slangen, vice president and general manager of Invacare's Rehab Division. "That engineering made it possible for athletes using Top End equipment to win more medals at the 1992 Paralympics than competitors using equipment by any other single manufacturer. The winning continues in 1993 as athletes in Top End products dominate the sports of road racing and quad rugby. The innovations introduced today are examples of what happens when the best keeps striving to get better."
 The enhancements unveiled in Atlanta were:
 -- The Top End Eliminator(TM) X features the addition of a revolutionary triangular front fork on the proven Eliminator(TM), a racing chair known the world over for speed and handling. When mounted on the Proven Eliminator(TM), the new fork provides a lower center of gravity, unparalleled steering through turns, and control on straights. The Eliminator(TM) X is more aerodynamic than any racing chair on the market.
 -- Top End introduced an enhanced version of the T3, a three-wheeled chair originally designed for tennis. The Basketball T3 is made of 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum for reduced weight and is designed to insure durability along with high performance. This chair comes with a fixed or adjustable seat height and the user's choice of fixed or adjustable axle. Top End's Basketball T3 delivers speed and maneuverability that brings out the best on the court.
 -- The Top End Terminator(TM) A2 allows the user to make quick adjustments in rear-seat height (also known as front-to-rear seat dump) on the Terminator(TM) court chair. The dump can be increased to maximize quickness and maneuverability on the court then raised to transform the Terminator(TM) into a stylish chair for everyday use. The Top End Terminator(TM) A2 -- the right chair for the person who frequently needs an "altitude adjustment."
 These products and the entire line of Top End by Action(TM) sports and recreation equipment are available through selected Invacare dealers.
