For years Quickie manual wheelchairs have led the market with High-End Innovation & developments in technology for the Active User. For the first time, we're proud to roll this technology down to the midrange.

Bursting with personality, the lightweight and affordable Neon² provides an energy efficient ride that you’ll never want to be without. The sleek, effortlessly foldable open-frame fits easily into the smallest car.

Paint your personality all over the Neon² with a beautiful selection of colours for the frame, upholstery trims, wheels and forks. When you’re done customising,
it’s not just the wheels that turn, heads will too!

At the heart of the Neon2 is a reinforced open-frame. The strength of the cross-brace and seat tubes provide our most rigid driving performance in a folding wheelchair. The unique design reduces the flex of the wheelchair when in motion, all without sacrificing the benefits of a folding frame.

The unique open-rear of the frame allows for very compact space saving dimensions. The swing away legrests not only ensure easy transfers in and out of your wheelchair, they’re removable too. Combine it with the optional half folding back and what you have is an extremely compact package!

The durable aluminium axle-stem allows for simple adjustments to the rear seat height and centre-of-gravity. Need to adjust the backrest angle? It‘s just as easy via the aluminium backrest bracket.

Helium Exo Pro Next Generation Wheelchair

The fully-welded and ultra-lightweight with the highest level of rigidity

Minimal, ultra-lightweight and completely refreshed, discover the next level of high-performance wheelchair with the QUICKIE Helium Pro. With a fully-welded frame and fixed welded backrest and axle, the Helium Pro provides the highest rigidity and most efficient driving performance yet for a rigid wheelchair. Starting from an impressive, ultra-lightweight 6.4 kg, the Helium Pro is uncompromised rigidity and unparalleled wheelchair performance.

Prefer a steeper seat angle? The new 88° wheelchair frame angle (option) not only provides you with better positioning, it also gives your Helium Pro 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 Pro 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 Pro more portable during stowage.

The innovative Freestyle Back (option) 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 access to the environment around you, so your usual day-to-day activities become a lot easier.

To create the QUICKIE Helium Pro, they have 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 Pro - an astonishingly ultra-lightweight wheelchair with a starting weight of just 6.4 kg. But it's not just about weight, the Helium Pro is also incredibly strong and durable, supporting a maximum user weight of 125 kg!

It has also been Crash Tested for added peace of mind
