Motion Composites Helio C2 Folding Manual Wheelchair
The Motion Composites Helio C2 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 fiber offers.
Motion Composite’s vision for the Helio C2 was significantly reduced weight and greater freedom of movement. Each component was carefully selected and carbon fiber was used for strength and lightness. The result is greater mobility as well as 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. The unique Ultrarigid Folding system (UFS) maximizes the chair’s overall stability, while the vertical axle plates increase rear wheel stiffness for optimal energy efficiency.
Because carbon fiber is both very strong and very light, it is an ideal material 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 to come.
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, this feature provides better foot propulsion. Or, move it beyond 20 inches (50.8 cm) to meet your most challenging needs.
The carbon seat rail on the Helio C2 is fully molded with integrated seat slider for better seat sling support.
