By coupling the latest hydroforming technologies with an ultra-high performance aluminum alloy, the Helio A7 is one of the lightest folding aluminum wheelchairs ever, while REV-HX are our fastest manual wheels on the market. Using ROWHEELS patented technology, REV-HX wheels turn 30% faster than the handrim, resulting in an extremely responsive and quick set of wheels. The powerful mechanical advantage of combining the ultra-lightweight Helio A7 frame with the unique ROWHEELS pulling action makes mobility not only much easier but also healthier.
Better design for better mobility: The cutting-edge design of the Helio A7, paired with the outstanding properties of 7000 series aluminum, have produced a chair that weighs up to 5 lbs. (2.2 kg) less than any other wheelchair in its category. Every single accessory, bolt and bracket of the Helio A7 is designed with weight reduction in mind. From the flip-back convertible armrests to the forged aluminum axle plate, lightness is a top priority.
Say goodbye to aches and pains: REV-HX wheels reduce the stresses and strains imposed on shoulders, elbows and wrists by traditional wheelchairs as the unique rowing action uses different muscle groups, resulting in significantly less discomfort. Travelling up inclines, across carpets or through uneven terrain is no problem using REV-HX wheels.
Your independence is important: REV-HX can keep you mobile and active without having to rely on powered wheelchair alternatives due to the unique therapeutic design of the REV-HX wheels, while the Helio A7 gives you the option to fully adjust your chair to suit your needs. The innovative frame design lets you achieve a super low 13” (33 cm) seat-to-floor height with a 3” caster on a standard frame. That same frame can go up to 21 1/2’’ (54.6cm).
Go further with a chair that’s easier to propel: The Helio A7 frame has a Symmetrical Hydroformed Crossbrace, oval shaped tubes and over-sized pivot axles which work in concert, and a unique Ultrarigid Folding System to maximize frame rigidity and energy conservation, all coming together to make a chair that’s easier to propel.
Designed by the best, for the best: REV-HX features an award-winning design by a NASA engineer, now combined with the unrivaled performance of the ultra-lightweight Helio A7 – whether you are an athlete looking to train and exercise or a wheelchair user looking to relieve upper limb discomfort, improve your posture, gain stamina and build upper body strength, this chair races to the top of its class for simple, efficient and durable design.
