Helio A7 WheelchairFrom $2295

Motion Composites’ innovative technology has breathed new life into a lightweight, foldable, durable and adjustable wheelchair: the Helio.

Helio, the only ultra-light folding wheelchair in its class, gives a new meaning to mobility. The Helio innovation has been made possible thanks to its incorporation of Formula 1 and aerospace technologies.

The Helio design is based on lightweight composite materials. Every part of the Helio was designed with the three essential qualities of the ideal wheelchair in mind: performance, adaptability, and durability.

  • Lowered seat posts
  • Monocoque frame is stronger and lighter
  • C3 Crosspiece, which distributes weight evenly throughout the Helio frame
  • Ultra-light axle
  • The rear wheel adjustment offers a large range of positions to enhance the chair’s rigidity
  • ISO Lock System works in combination with the lowered seat posts to eliminate any possible frame movement.
  • Light and easy to handle, like a rigid chair, yet practical due to its folding frame.
  • Evolve casters offer a simple way of adjusting the angle of the front wheels!
