Benefits

Lighter and more convenient

The HELIO A6 aims for efficiency and mobility at an affordable price. Durable components like our symmetrical cross brace ensure remarkable mobility and ease of propulsion while the lightweight design guarantees comfortable and agile handling.

Innovative design, superior manufacturing

Solid manufacturing and reliable components that give you more, plus optional accessories that include height-adjustable T-armrests, integrated push handles and Newton One spoke wheels. Also, one-piece side frames for greater strength and maneuverability. In short, the HELIO A6 wheelchair offers exceptional durability, to serve you for many years to come.

Solid, fully adjustable components

The vertical axle plates offer multiple center-of-gravity adjustments while maximizing lateral stability. The single post armrests let you adjust to a specific height without the bulk of conventional single post arms and the integrated armrest receiver eliminates vibration noises that can crop up over time.

Optimal seat-to-floor height


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.

Technologies

A unibody frame is much stronger and requires less maintenance than a standard two part frame. It also reduces weight while maximizing propulsion efficiency.

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

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

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