HELIO A7

Aluminum folding wheelchair

A WORLD OF INFINITE POSSIBILITIES

An agile, fully adjustable wheelchair with excellent propulsion to take you even further. Sophisticated technology and high-performance 7000-series aluminum alloy give the Helio A7 unparalleled maneuverability and lightness.

Benefits

The lightness of 7000-series aluminum alloy

By combining the latest hydroforming technologies with an aluminum alloy known for its excellent strength-to-weight ratio, we’ve created one of the lightest folding aluminum chairs on the market. Each HELIO A7 accessory and component was designed to reduce weight as much as possible for highly reactive handling.

Save your energy to go further

Ease of propulsion is an undeniable plus and, with the HELIO A7, you’ll enjoy remarkable agility. The completely symmetrical hydroformed cross brace, oval tubing and pivot axles work together while the unique folding system maximizes the frame’s stability, saving you considerable energy on a daily basis

Innovative and fully adjustable components

HELIO A7 is a fully adjustable wheelchair. Maximizing stability and reactivity, the forged vertical axle plate offers the industry’s most precise rear wheel adjustability. The composite armrests quickly convert from flip-back to single post for easy configuration. Height can also be adjusted with the flick of a finger.

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.

Helio A7 Features

Technologies

An aluminum alloy renowned for its high strength-to-weight ratio.

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.

Offers the industry’s most precise rear wheel adjustability. The vertical mounting maximizes stability and responsiveness.

Easy to adjust and made of composite materials for strength and reduced weight. It is the only armrest the converts for flip-back to single post without the use of tools.

Integrated into the frame for rock-solid durability, the Evolve caster housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.

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

Parts and accessories designed to be lighter with improved functionality.
