A7 – Sophisticated meets affordable.
We took the knowledge acquired through the creation process of the Helio C2 and made it available in an entry-level package. By using the latest hydroforming technologies and a high performance aluminium alloy, we created the Helio A7, an ultra-light and propulsion-efficient wheelchair with an affordable price tag.
A7 – The lightest wheelchair of its class.
We are unrivaled when it comes to lightness, no matter the material. Thanks to cutting edge design paired with the outstanding properties of 7000 series aluminium, a Helio A7 with a standard configuration weighs at least 5 pounds less than the other popular wheelchairs in its category.
A7 – The lowest seat-to-floor height.
The innovative frame design of the Helio A7 lets you achieve a super low 13 ½” seat-to-floor height with a 4″ caster on a standard frame. That’s the same frame that can go up to 21″!
A7 – Hydroforming: Shaping the future of aluminium.
Thanks to hydroforming, a revolutionary method of shaping malleable metals like our high-end 7005 T6 aluminium alloy, we were able to reproduce our signature Symmetrical Crossbrace 3D and our UltraRigid Folding System on the Helio A7. This means greatly improved handling and unmatched energy conservation for easier everyday activities.
Ultralight Aluminium 7005 T6 – An aluminium alloy that is renowned for its high strength-to-weight ratio.
Rigid Unibody Frame – A unibody frame is much stronger and needs less maintenance than a standard two-part frame. It also reduces weight while maximizing propulsion efficiency.
Symmetrical Hydroformed Crossbrace 3D – Entirely symmetrical aluminium crossbrace for reduced torsion and a better distribution of forces throughout the frame.
Ultrarigid Folding System – Extremely precise tolerances and oversized pivot axles for best-in-class propulsion efficiency.
Forged Vertical Axleplate + – Offers the most precise rear wheel adjustability of the industry. The vertical mounting maximizes rigidity and responsiveness.
Evolve caster housing – Imbedded inside the frame for rock solid durability, the Evolve Caster Housing offers easy and precise infinite adjustments.
Newton Accessories – The whole range of Newton accessories are designed to be light and offer improved functionalities.
