Helio Kids Carbon Fibre

Starting from RRP £3,250.00

Carbon 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.

LIGHTWEIGHT FOR GREATER FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT

HELIO KIDS is one of the lightest folding manual wheelchairs for kids on the market. We use high-performance carbon fibre for peak lightness and strength. From the flip-back footrests to the forged aluminium axle plates, each component and accessory was chosen with weight reduction in mind.

 

A CHAIR THAT GROWS WITH YOUR CHILD

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. On top of all of this the Helio Kids comes included with a growth kit to enable to increase the seat width as your child grows.

 

SAVES THEIR ENERGY SO THEY CAN GO FURTHER

A highly agile wheelchair is an undeniable 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 maximizes the frame’s stability, saving your child energy on a daily basis.

 

STRONG ENOUGH TO KEEP UP WITH YOUR CHILD

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

T700 High Tensile Strength 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 maximizing propulsion efficiency.

Symmetrical Moulded Crossbrace 3D

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

Ultra-Rigid Folding System

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

Forged Vertical Axle Plate

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

Evolve Caster Housing

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

Anti-Flutter System

Minimize flutter with a simple twist of a screw, provides a smooth, more efficient ride
