The HELIO A6 aluminium wheelchair by Motion Composites 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.

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

The vertical axle plates offer multiple centre-of-gravity adjustments while maximising lateral stability. The single post armrests let you adjust to a specific height without the bulk of conventional single post arms. The integrated armrest receiver eliminates vibration noises that can crop up over time.

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. Or, move it beyond 20 inches (50.8 cm) to meet your most challenging needs.

Reinforced Backrest Support

Integrated Armrest Reciever

Hybrid Frame Design

Eliminates the need for both hemi and standard frames while providing a complete range of seat-to-floor heights.

Anti-Flutter Casters

Symmetrical Cross Brace

Minimises torsion in the frame and contributes to best-in-class propulsion efficiency.

Rigid Unibody Frame

A unibody frame is much stronger and requires less maintenance than a standard two-part frame. It also reduces weight while maximising propulsion efficiency.

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.
