Motion Composites Receives a 2nd Red Dot Award

The VELOCE carbon fiber wheelchair has won a prestigious award for design from Red Dot.

The Red Dot Design Award is an international product design prize awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany.

The award marks the second Red Dot recognition for Motion Composites as our APEX wheelchair model also won in 2017. This latest award is further testament to Motion Composites' focus on designing wheelchairs with unparalleled quality and aesthetics.

“From the beginning, Motion Composites has been laser-focused on developing best-in-class wheelchairs which are not only very light and durable, but also incorporate unique design elements,” says Eric Simoneau, President and CEO of Motion Composites. “Selecting the right wheelchair is a very personal decision for our users, and the Veloce is a great choice for someone that wants a foldable model that can be perfectly adjusted to meet their everyday needs.”

About the VELOCE

The VELOCE wheelchair was launched in 2018 and is our most technically advanced foldable model. In addition to its incredible lightness, the Veloce has several distinctive features, including a unibody frame with symmetrical crossbrace, integrated impact guards and bubble levels, and offers unparalleled adjustability at key points. Many wheelchair users fear adjustability, especially with foldables, because it can often lead to looseness in their chair over time. The Veloce is made with only high-quality components, providing the user with very precise adjustability and sustained stability.

Every Motion Composites chair is custom built-to-order and manufactured by hand in its plant in Quebec. Most of the company’s models are made of carbon fiber, a material often used in the aerospace and automotive industries among others, that provides an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. The company sells its wheelchairs via a large network of dealers and distributors across Canada, the US and Europe.
