The Quickie Helium from Sunrise Medical is an ultra-lightweight wheelchair with outstanding performance. Minimal, ultra-lightweight and completely refreshed, the Helium is the next level of high-performance wheelchair. Using modern Carbotecture® and hydroforming technology to deliver an extremely strong, sturdy and ultra-lightweight wheelchair, the Helium delivers impressive driving characteristics and quick, direct reactions to the most minimal of effort. Highly adjustable, highly configurable and highly durable
Aerospace-grade aluminium and innovative heat-treating processes are used to increase the strength within the Helium's frame, allowing the frame walls to be thinner, lighter and stronger. The results speak for themselves, a starting weight of just 6.8kg along with a maximum user weight of 125kg!
It's not just the ultra-lightweight design that'll impress you about the Helium, it's also the high-degree of adjustability. Change the driving performance from very-safe to very-manouverable with the infinitely adjustable centre of gravity, adapt the backrest or fine-tune the rear seat height - your Helium is all about adjusting to suit you. Create a steeper seat angle with the 88° frame angle option - which provides you with better positioning whilst creating a sleek, active look, along with a more compact wheelchair.
