Motion Composite-Logo

The MOVE crash-tested folding wheelchair by Motion Composites is designed to offer efficiency and mobility at an affordable price. Thanks to its ingenious design, with components and accessories carefully selected by our experts, MOVE is one of the lightest standard wheelchairs on the market.

MOVE is a well-built adjustable wheelchair equipped with highly functional components. The lightweight composite armrests easily convert from flip-back to single post and can be just as easily adjusted for height. MOVE adapts to your life and fulfils our mission: to increase your mobility.

Solid design and reliable components that give you more. MOVE offers excellent durability, from flip-back convertible armrests to integrated push handles and Newton One spoke wheels, serving you for many years.

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.

Integrated Push Handles

For added strength and durability.

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.

Ultra Rigid Folding System

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

Aluminium Seat Rail

With integrated seat slider for better seat sling support.

Hybrid Frame Design

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

Anti-Flutter Castor

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

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.
