This flagship model is one of the lightest, most technologically advanced wheelchairs in its category. The HELIO C2 is the result of a series of innovations. It features revolutionary components, an impeccable finish and all the advantages carbon fibre offers.

Motion Composite-Logo

Our vision for the HELIO C2 by Motion Composites was significantly reduced weight and greater freedom of movement. Each component was carefully selected, and carbon fibre was used for strength and lightness. The result is greater mobility and reduced chronic shoulder and joint injuries.

The symmetrical cross brace and rigid unibody frame distribute forces equally throughout the frame for superior energy transfer and propulsion. Our unique Ultrarigid Folding system (UFS) maximises the chair’s overall stability, while the vertical axle plates increase rear wheel stiffness for optimal energy efficiency.

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 more accessible contact with the floor, this feature provides better foot propulsion. Or, move it beyond 20 inches (50.8 cm) to meet your most challenging needs.

Because carbon fibre is robust and light, it is ideal for making wheelchairs. 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.

Reinforced Backrest Support

For added stability and comfort.

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.

Anti-Flutter Caster

Minimise flutter with a simple twist of a screw. Provides a smooth, more efficient ride.

Evolve Caster Housing

Integrated into the frame for rock-solid durability, the Evolve caster housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.

Carbon Seat Rail

It is fully moulded with an integrated seat slider for better seat sling support.

Ultra Rigid Folding System

High-precision tolerances and oversized pivot axles for best-in-class propulsion efficiency.

Hybrid Frame Design

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

Footrest Anchor

The bracket is inset with an integrated friction plate to protect the carbon fibre.

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

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.

Entirely symmetrical carbon fibre cross brace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame.

Offers the industry’s most precise rear wheel adjustability. The vertical mounting maximises stability and responsiveness.

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.
