Carbon Fiber Helio Kids Wheelchair

Description

The helio kids wheelchair by motion composites was designed to keep up with the active lives of children. That’s why we chose a carbon fibre design that is incredibly light and improves your everyday mobility while being exceptionally strong.

Lightweight for greater freedom of movement

Helio kids are one of the lightest folding manual wheelchairs for kids on the market. We use high-performance carbon fibre for peak lightness and strength. In addition, each component and accessory was chosen with weight reduction in mind, from the flip-back footrests to the forged aluminium axle plates.

Kids grow fast, and helio kids is designed to grow right along with them. It only takes a few seconds to increase the seat depth by up to 3 inches (7.6 cm) in infinite increments for greater precision. In addition, the footplate height can be adjusted quickly and efficiently, so your child is always comfortable.

It saves energy so they can go further

A highly agile wheelchair is an undeniable plus, especially for kids. However, we only included what was essential for even more efficient propulsion. The moulded cross brace, oval tubing and pivot axles work together while the unique folding system maximises the frame’s stability, saving your child energy daily.

Strong enough to keep up with your child

T700 carbon fibre is ideal for making high-performance wheelchairs due to its incredible sturdiness and stability. Unlike standard two-part frames, helio kids has a rigid unibody (single) frame, making it much more robust. Kids can be tough on their wheelchairs, but this chair was made to last, serving your child well for many years to come.

General Manual Wheelchair Maintenance Recommendations

    • Check tire pressure and inflate if needed
    • Check wheel locks
  • Monthly Maintenance Recommendations:
    • Remove hair from casters
    • Inflate tires if needed
    • Check all hardware, tighten as needed
  • Quarterly Maintenance Recommendations:
    • Check wheel locks after inflating tires
    • Free spin all wheels and casters to check bearings
    • Clean all parts while performing thorough maintenance
    • Check cushion and backrest, including padding/hardware/covers

Features

26% lighter than the competition.

We use the same high-quality carbon fibre into Formula 1 racing cars to build our ultra-lightweight wheelchairs. T700 high-modulus carbon fibre is unrivalled when it comes to strength and rigidity. So our frame is not only ultra-light but incredibly strong too. Kids can be tough on their wheelchairs. But the Helio Kids can take the punishment!

Everybody benefits from an easier to propel kid’s wheelchair.

The entirely Symmetrical, Molded Crossbrace, oval-shaped tubes and oversized pivot axles work in concert, while our unique Ultrarigid Folding System maximises frame rigidity and responsiveness.

Kids grow…but you knew that.

The Helio Kids is made to grow right along with them. The adjustable back allows you to increase seat depth up to 3″ (7.6 cm) in infinite increments for greater precision. Plus, you can as precisely modify footplate height in seconds. The result is that the Helio Kids gives you a perfect fit…even if kids do seem to grow overnight!

Better design means better mobility.

Even an ultra-lightweight carbon fibre frame can get weighed down without the right components. That’s why every Helio Kids’ accessory, bolt and bracket is designed with weight reduction in mind. As a result, we’ve made lightness a top priority, from our forged aluminium axle plate to our functional swing-in, swing-out front rigging.

Technology

High-Modulus Carbon T700 — The lightest and most rigid material available, also renowned for its vibration dampening properties

Rigid Unibody Frame— A unibody frame is much stronger and needs less maintenance than a standard two-part frame. It also reduces weight while maximizing propulsion efficiency.

Symmetrical Molded Crossbrace 3D— Entirely symmetrical carbon fibre crossbrace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame.

Ultra rigid 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. In addition, the vertical mounting maximizes rigidity and responsiveness.

Evolve Caster Housing— Embedded inside the frame for rock-solid durability; the Evolve Caster Housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.

Newton Accessories— Parts and accessories designed to be lighter, with improved functionality and excellent style.

Anti-Flutter System– Minimize flutter with a simple twist of a screw.
