Aluminium rigid wheelchair


The bold design and innovative approach behind the APEX Aluminum have redefined perceptions of rigid wheelchairs. The triple-butted aluminium and strategic touch of carbon fibre strike a perfect balance making this chair an example of modernity and lightness.

Motion Composite-Logo

The APEX A by Motion Composites combines the advantages of triple-butted aluminium with carbon fibre for unbeatable strength and lightness. The result is a wheelchair that is easy to handle and transport with ease of propulsion, making it easier to get where you want to go.

APEX Aluminium is an easily manoeuvrable rigid wheelchair that offers safe and high-performance handling. The unique rigidising bar maximises stability while preserving reactivity. This rigidity reduces lateral movement and offers optimal propulsion for greater mobility.

While technology and function are important, so are design and aesthetics. Each detail of the APEX Aluminium chair was carefully considered and thoughtfully designed to create a head-turning chair that challenges all wheelchair stereotypes.

AluLite aluminium alloy and triple-butted aluminium make this chair considerably lighter and stronger. Thanks to the quality of the components and the touch of carbon fibre, the APEX Aluminium is highly durable to serve you for many years to come.

The APEX Aluminium wheelchair offers a wide range of settings for a completely customised experience. Fully modular, the back angle, seat-to-floor height and rear-wheel positions can all be adjusted for your comfort. Laser-etched markings make it easier to adjust key components and specify exact positioning. Simple. Quick. Adaptive.

Stronger and lighter than 7005 aluminium.

Patented modular system that enhances versatility and rear frame stiffness.

Reduces weight while maintaining strength. We put the strength where it counts!

Provides a responsive ride without added weight.

Service and Maintenance

Motion Composites recommends regular maintenance using their checklist:

Every Day Manual Wheelchair Checks

Make sure the wheelchair rolls easily and straight.

Check for vibrations, noise or any deviation from normal functioning.

Make sure the wheel locks are working correctly.

Make sure the front stem is perpendicular to the floor.

Visually inspect the tires (front and rear) for debris, low pressure, flat spots or wear.

Make sure the anti-tipper tubes are locked in place (if equipped).

Visually inspect the fabric for protruding metal, rips or tears.

Make sure the handgrips are not loose (if equipped).

Check the hand rims for rough edges and ensure they are free of grease or other contaminants.

Checks for component interference.

Check for irregular noise and rattles.

Weekly Manual Wheelchair Checks

Check the tire pressure with a tire gauge.

Check the tension of the seat upholstery. It should be at a straight angle when the wheelchair is open and set in position.

Monthly Manual Wheelchair Checks

Check the wheel alignment.

Check that the fork bearings are moving freely.

Yearly Manual Wheelchair Checks

Have a complete inspection performed by a qualified technician.

Tire pressure can be adjusted by the owner or an assistant with the proper tools.
