Kids can be tough on their wheelchairs! Helio Kids can take the punishment because it's manufactured using cutting edge carbon fibre technology that provides unrivalled strength and durability, yet it is incredibly lightweight.
With its superior fatigue resistance, extreme temperature tolerances and exceptional durability, carbon fibre is one of the strongest yet lightest materials on earth. That’s why it’s the ultimate wheelchair material — making the Helio Kids the lightest folding paediatric wheelchair anywhere.
Everybody benefits from an easier to propel kid’s wheelchair. The Symmetrical Molded Crossbrace, oval shaped tubes and oversized pivot axles work in concert, while the unique Ultrarigid Folding System maximizes frame rigidity and responsiveness. The Helio Kids is made to grow right along with them. The adjustable back means the seat depth can be increased up to 3” (7.6 cm) in infinite increments for greater precision. Plus, you can adjust and modify the footplate height in seconds.
Even an ultra-lightweight carbon fibre frame can get weighed down without the right components. That’s why every single accessory, bolt and bracket of the Helio Kids is designed with weight reduction in mind. Lightness is a priority - from the forged aluminium axle plate to the functional swing-in, swing-out front rigging.
