When it comes to lightweight performance, Motion Composites is unrivaled. Take the Helio A7, for example. Our engineers’ cutting edge design, paired with the outstanding properties of 7000 series aluminum, have produced a standard configuration Helio A7 that weighs up to 5 lbs. (2.2 kg) less than any other wheelchair in its category. That’s top of the class.
Ultralight Aluminum 7005 T6 - An aluminum alloy renowned for its high strength-to-weight ratio.
Rigid Unibody Frame - A unibody frame is much stronger and requires less maintenance than a standard two-part frame. It also reduces weight while maximizing propulsion efficiency.
Symmetrical Hydroformed Crossbrace 3D - Entirely symmetrical aluminum crossbrace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame.
Ultrarigid Folding System - High-precision tolerances and oversized pivot axles for best-in-class propulsion efficiency. Forged Vertical Axleplate - Offers the industry’s most precise rear wheel adjustability. The vertical mounting maximizes rigidity and responsiveness.
Evolve Caster Housing - Integrated into the frame for rock-solid durability, the Evolve Caster Housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.
Flip-back Convertible Armrest - Easy to adjust and made of composite materials for strength and reduced weight, it is the only armrest that converts from flip-back to single post without the use of tools.
Anti-Flutter System - Minimize flutter with a simple twist of a screw.
Newton Accessories - Parts and accessories designed to be lighter with improved functionality and style.
