Quickie Helium Rigid Wheelchair
The ultra-lightweight wheelchair for outstanding performance.
Minimal, ultra-lightweight and completely refreshed, discover the next level of high-performance wheelchair with the QUICKIE Helium. 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 to your needs, it's your perfect companion in your day-to-day life.
The ultra-lightweight wheelchair with a proven and durable design
To create the QUICKIE Helium, we used premium frame materials like aerospace-grade 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 the QUICKIE Helium - an astonishingly ultra-lightweight wheelchair with a starting weight of just 6.8 kg. But it's not just about weight, the Helium is also incredibly strong and durable, supporting a maximum user weight of 125 kg!
Ultra-lightweight and adjustable to your needs
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 even fine-tine the rear seat height - your Helium is all about adjusting to suit you.
Go compact with a 88° Wheelchair frame angle
Prefer a steeper seat angle? The new 88° wheelchair frame angle (option) 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.
Complement your Helium's design with a choice of frame graphics
Inject some individuality into your QUICKIE 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)
For added convenience, it comes with a small tool kit, under-seat utility bag, rear zipped pocket and pouch, and transportation bracket as standard; the tool kit allows the wheelchair to be taken apart and put back together anywhere whilst the transportation bracket means that the crash-tested Helium is safe to use in the car once secured in place.
