Carbon-fibre ultra-light easy to push the folding wheelchair for children

The HELIO Kids wheelchair by Motion Composites was designed to keep up with the active lives of children. That’s why we chose a carbon-fibre design that is incredibly light and improves your everyday mobility while being exceptionally strong.

Motion Composites HELIO KIDS Carbon Fibre lightweight wheelchair is one of the lightest folding manual wheelchairs for kids on the market. Uniquely a Carbon Fibre wheelchair certified for power add-on devices, including the Benoit Systemes Light Drive Mini². Designed to use high-performance carbon fibre for peak lightness and strength. Each component and accessory was chosen from the flip-back footrests to the forged aluminium axle plates with weight reduction in mind.

Kids grow fast, and HELIO Kids is designed to grow right along with them. It only takes a few seconds to increase the seat depth by up to 3 inches (7.6 cm) in infinite increments for greater precision. The footplate height can be adjusted just as quickly and easily so your child is always comfortable.

A highly agile wheelchair is a definite plus, especially for kids. We only included what was essential for even more efficient propulsion. The moulded cross brace, oval tubing and pivot axles work together while the unique folding system maximises the frame’s stability, saving your child energy daily.

T700 carbon fibre is ideal for making high-performance wheelchairs due to its incredible sturdiness and stability. Unlike standard two-part frames, HELIO KIDS has a rigid unibody (single) frame, making it much stronger. Kids can be tough on their wheelchairs, but this robust chair was made to last, serving your child well for many years to come.

“Emerson loves her pink chair and how light it is for her and easy to manoeuver. It has many customisation options, and it’s built to accommodate growth. We also love the fact that it is foldable and that the wheels are removeable.”

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.
