Detailed Description

The ULTIMATE ultra-lightweight wheelchair of choice.

It's time for a new generation! Minimalist design and impressive driving performance - that's what Helium active wheelchair is all about. Modern Carbotecture ® and hydroforming makes the Helium extremely strong and sturdy. Bespoke mouldings, a choice of 32 colours and a variety of trim levels and design options will help your Helium reflect your pure individuality.

The Helium encompasses the latest in cycle and car racing technology:-

Designed and engineered from the latest ultra-light 'formed aluminium technology', custom moulding and high-tech options. As little as 6.2Kg complete, the Quickie gives you the lightest, most manoeuvrable 'mobility device' ever conceived.

Hydroformed oval aluminium tubing:-

As used in the racing bike industry. Ensures all lightweight parts are stronger, fit without play and do not turn or twist under load. Modern styling, extremely rigid and ultra-lightweight.

High Rigidity:-

As well as all the usual required tests, the Helium has been tested against our competitor's products to make sure it's not just the lightest but also very rigid. The cross frame, front frame and wheel axle rigidity is best in it's class for lightweight wheelchairs.

Rigid axle assembly with height adjustment:-

Oval shapes, forged parts, wider clamps and ‘anodised coating‘ ensure extreme rigidity, silence and allows +/−1 cm fine tuning of rear seat height.

Castor house customised to your needs:-

The innovative front frame design offers an impressive handling performance. The castor house height can be customised to the castor size, giving better transfer stability and less load on the front castors (for better rolling and turning).
