Apex C Motion Composites Wheelchair

Description

Made from state of the art T700 carbon fibre layers, the apex C is the ultimate lightweight, strong, durable rigid chair. The cantilever design provides optimum comfort by absorbing shocks and vibrations. Combine that with a carbon fibre rigidised bar and camber tube; you’ve got the ultimate combination for lightweight without compromising on strength. The bar is unique to the apex C, and both maximise stability whilst preserving reactivity. This allows for a tremendous energy-efficient chair for maximum propulsion.

Motion composites are confident that they will even offer a lifetime guarantee. But, does lifetime mean lifetime – same user for 30 years? Frame still covered!

Motion composite is a world-renowned Canadian brand, just starting to mark the UK and UAE. If you’re looking for something a little different that stands out from the well-known competitors such as Quickie and Invacare, then this is one to watch.

Available for home and store demonstration. Colours include black, white, sky blue, acid green, Ferrari red, Fuschia, and sunkissed orange.

Features

The lightest wheelchair in its class.
With a transport weight of just 9.2 lbs.* (4.2 kg), the APEX obliterates every preconceived idea about rigid chairs. It’s fully configurable to meet the needs of just about every client and performs like a carbon fibre purebred.

Head-turning design.
Check out the design and construction details on the APEX. Or, examine its innovative components and accessories, such as the integrated impact guard and rigidizing system. In a word…revolutionary. The APEX from Motion Composites. Welcome to a new era in rigid chair design and performance.

Shed the weight. Up the performance.
Available in carbon or aluminium frame, the APEX cantilever design is constructed using the industry’s most advanced materials. Plus, the APEX represents not just low frame weight. It’s also the lightest configured adjustable chair in the industry. A fully configured APEX Carbon weighs just 15.5 lbs. (7 kg).

Nimble and responsive.
The unique rear rigidizing bar on the APEX optimizes ride performance. By increasing rear-frame rigidity, we’ve achieved an open design concept that increases lateral stability. Result — flex where and when you want it, and no sacrifice in stability for gains in comfort and ease of transport.

Sleek styling.
Inspired by modern design and aesthetics, the head-turning lines on the APEX prove once again that form should follow function. We invite you to linger on the APEX’s gentle curves and bold styling. Every design detail delights the eye and excites the senses.

Adjusts to your life.
As people change and evolve, so should their wheelchairs. From simple adjustments in back angle, seat and floor height to tunable rear wheel positions and seat width, the APEX is fully modular and adjustable. Plus, its laser-etched markings allow you to easily adjust key components and specify exact positioning.
