Features:

AluLite- a stronger and lighter aluminium alloy 

The Apex A combines the advantages of triple-butted aluminium with those of carbon fiber for unbeatable strength and lightness. The result is a wheelchair that is easy to handle and transport with an ease of propulsion that makes it easier to get where you want to go.

Uncompromised stability
The Apex Aluminium is an easily manoeuverable rigid wheelchair that offers safe and high-performance handling. The unique rigidising bar maximizes stability while preserving reactivity. This rigidity reduces lateral movement and offers optimal propulsion for greater mobility.
Bold, modern and refined design

While technology and function are important, so are design and aesthetics. Each detail of the Apex Aluminium chair has been carefully considered and thoughtfully designed to create a head-turning chair that challenges all wheelchair stereotypes.

Perfected materials

AluLite aluminum alloy and triple-butted aluminum make this chair considerably lighter and remarkably strong. Thanks to the quality of the components and the touch of carbon fiber, the Apex Aluminium is highly durable to serve you for many years to come.

Infinitely adjustable

The Apex Aluminium wheelchair offers a wide range of settings for a completely customised experience. Fully modular, the back angle, seat-to-floor height and rear wheel positions can all be adjusted for your comfort. Laser-etched markings make it easier to adjust key components and specify exact positioning. Simple. Quick. Adaptive.
