Motion Composites Helio Kids Carbon Fiber Folding Manual Wheelchair

The Helio Kids wheelchair by Motion Composites was designed to keep up with the active lives of children. The carbon fiber design is incredibly light and improves everyday mobility while being exceptionally strong.

Kids grow fast and the Helio Kids manual wheelchair 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.

The Helio Kids is one of the lightest folding manual wheelchairs for kids on the market. High-performance carbon fiber is used for peak lightness and strength. From the flip-back footrests to the forged aluminum axle plates, each component and accessory was chosen with weight reduction in mind.

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 molded 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 fiber is an ideal material for making high-performance wheelchairs, due to its incredible sturdiness and stability. Unlike standard two-part frames, the 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.
