Helio A6 Wheelchair

  • Height-adjustable T-armrests
  • Offers exceptional durability
  • Aims for efficiency and mobility
  • Multiple center-of-gravity adjustments
  • Innovative frame design


The Helio A6 has the second lightest starting frame weight for an aluminium folding frame wheelchair at just 13.1 lbs. The only aluminum chair lighter than the Helio A6 is the Helio A7. However, the lightweight does not mean anything is forfeited on this chair. The Helio A6 has great adjustability for those purchasing their first wheelchair, wanting to find a more comfortable set-up than their current chair, or having a body type that requires dimensions that are out of the norm. The A6 has an adjustable seat in increments of 1/2 inch for a good fit.

What Makes It Different

Helio A6’s innovative frame design allows for a seat-to-floor height range as low as 12” and as high as 20.5”. The Helio A6 uses motion composite’s symmetrical hydroformed cross brace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame. The rigid unibody frame is a one-piece frame, just as the name implies. Most folding frame chairs utilize a two-piece frame which increases the weight and requires more maintenance. The unibody frame also maximises your propulsion or pushing efficiency.

Why We Like It

A great range of adjustability at a meager weight for a folding frame chair makes the Helio A6 an excellent option for any user who knows exactly what they want for a set-up or is still looking for the perfect fit. A vertical axle plate offers multiple centers of gravity settings and maximises the lateral stability of the chair itself. Motion Composites offer high-quality Newton armrests, casters, rear wheels, and handrail accessories. The premier attraction of the Helio A6 is still motion composite’s symmetrical cross brace which provides the efficient, lightweight, sturdy feel of a rigid frame chair with the convenience of a folding frame chair.

LIGHTER AND MORE CONVENIENT: The HELIO A6 aims for efficiency and mobility at an affordable price. Durable components like our symmetrical cross brace ensure remarkable mobility and ease of propulsion while the lightweight design guarantees comfortable and agile handling.

INNOVATIVE DESIGN, SUPERIOR MANUFACTURING: Solid manufacturing and reliable components that give you more, plus optional accessories that include height-adjustable T-armrests, integrated push handles and Newton One spoke wheels. Also, one-piece side frames for greater strength and maneuverability. In short, the HELIO A6 wheelchair offers exceptional durability, to serve you for many years to come.

SOLID, FULLY ADJUSTABLE COMPONENTS: The vertical axle plates offer multiple center-of-gravity adjustments while maximizing lateral stability. The single post armrests let you adjust to a specific height without the bulk of conventional single post arms and the integrated armrest receiver eliminates vibration noises that can crop up over time.

OPTIMAL SEAT-TO-FLOOR HEIGHT: The frame’s innovative design allows you to achieve a super-low 12-inch (30.5-cm) front seat-to-floor height. In addition to easier contact with the floor, this feature provides better foot propulsion. Or, move it beyond 20 inches (50.8 cm) to meet your most challenging needs.


  • 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 cross brace 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.
  • ANTI-FLUTTER SYSTEM: Minimize flutter with a simple twist of a screw. Provides a smooth, more efficient ride.
