The Helio A6 has the second lightest starting frame weight for an aluminum folding frame wheelchair at just 13.1 lbs. The only aluminum chair lighter than the Helio A6 is the Helio A7. The light weight does not mean anything is forfeited on this chair. The Helio A6 has great adjustability for those purchasing their first wheelchair, wanting to find a more comfortable set-up than with their current chair, or those who simply have a body type that requires dimensions that are out of the norm. The A6 has an adjustable seat in increments of 1/2 inch for a good fit.
What Makes It Different:
Helio A6’s innovative frame design allows for a seat to floor height range that can be as low as 12” and as high as 20.5”. The Helio A6 uses Motion Composite’s Symmetrical Hydroformed Cross Brace for reduced torsion and better energy distribution throughout the frame. The Rigid Unibody Frame is just as the name implies – a one-piece frame. Most folding frame chairs utilize a two-piece frame which increase the weight and requires more maintenance. The Unibody frame also maximizes your propulsion or pushing efficiency.
Why We Like It:
A great range of adjustability at a very low weight for a folding frame chair makes the Helio A6 a great option for any user that either knows exactly what they want for a set-up or the user who is still looking for the perfect fit. A vertical axle plate offers multiple center of gravity settings and maximizes lateral stability of the chair itself. Motion Composites offers their high-quality Newton armrests, casters, rear wheels, and handrim accessories. The premier attraction of the Helio A6 is still Motion Composite’s symmetrical cross brace which provides the efficient, lightweight, sturdy feel of a rigid frame chair with convenience of a folding frame chair.
