Carbon rigid wheelchair


The APEX Carbon wheelchair by Motion Composites belongs to a new era of rigid wheelchairs. A balanced blend of technology and design is the ultimate in lightness, durability, flexibility and style—it is a high-end technology and all the advantages of carbon fibre in a modern-looking, fully adjustable chair.

Made of the industry’s most advanced materials, the APEX Carbon wheelchair by Motion Composites is truly state-of-the-art. The use of carbon fibre makes it incredibly light. At the same time, the cantilever frame provides optimal comfort by absorbing shocks and vibrations—transport weight of 9.8 lbs ensuring agile transportation and movement for well-being at all times.

The rigidising bar unique to the APEX model maximises stability while preserving reactivity. This sturdiness 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.

Carbon fibre has the unique quality of being one of the strongest yet lightest materials. It also has superior fatigue resistance and can withstand extreme temperatures. This ensures exceptional durability for a chair that will serve you for many years.

APEX Carbon wheelchair offers several 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.

One of the lightest and sturdiest materials available, also renowned for its vibration-damping properties.

Prevents daily use of scratches to the front of the frame. Adds high friction grip for transfers. Protects vulnerable areas of lower extremities.

Patented modular system that enhances versatility and rear frame stiffness.

Provides a responsive ride without added weight.

Allow for quick and easy symmetrical adjustments.

Built-in highly accurate and calibrated gauges make caster adjustments quick and precise.

Parts and accessories are designed to be lighter with improved functionality.

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.
