Product Description

Minimal, ultra-lightweight and completely refreshed, discover the next level of high-performance wheelchair with the Helium Next Generation. Using modern carbotecture and hydroforming technology to deliver an extremely strong, sturdy and ultra-lightweight wheelchair, the Helium Next Generation delivers impressive driving characteristics and quick, direct reactions to the most minimal of effort. Highly adjustable to your needs, it’s your perfect companion for your day-to-day life.

Made from premium frame materials like aerospace aluminium and innovative processes to heat-treat the aluminium and increase its strength. This allows the frame’s tube walls to be thinner, lighter and stronger than a conventional wheelchair. The result is an astonishingly ultra-lightweight wheelchair with a starting weight of just 6.8kg. The Helium Next Generation offers a high-degree of adjustability, change the driving performance from very-safe to very-manoeuvrable with the infinitely adjustable centre of gravity, adapt the backrest or even fine-tune the rear seat height.

The new 88º wheelchair frame angle (optional) not only provides you with better positioning, it also gives your Helium a sleeker, more active look and a more compact than ever wheelchair frame. With your legs positioned further back, you’ll have greater space at the front of your Helium for tighter turning circles – especially when taking advantage of the depth adjustment of the re-designed carbon footplate for a closer foot position. Plus, the shorter frame also makes the ultra-lightweight Helium more portable during stowage.

The innovative freestyle back (optional) not only enhances your trunk stability, it gives you a 360-degree range of upper body motion from your wheelchair without the restriction that’s usually caused by back canes. Providing you with greater access to the rear wheels, you’re able to maximise the efficiency of every push you make. It also increases assess to the environment around you, so your usual day-to-day activities become a lot easier. The freestyle back perfectly compliments the ultra-lightweight design of your Helium too.

Inject some individuality into your Helium wheelchair with a selection of stylish frame graphics. Subtle and distinctive, they’ll perfectly compliment the timeless design of your Helium. You can even tweak your Helium’s design further by contrasting your frame’s colour with a choice of 6 frame graphic colours (black, matt-black, orange, red, blue or silver)
