Redefining the world’s expectations about rigid chairs

Introducing the APEX from Motion Composites. Our newest ultralight, fully adjustable rigid wheelchair represents a revolution in rigid chair design. Why?

Because it’s the best of all possible worlds. The best of the celebrated lightness, strength and performance you associate with carbon fiber. And, for the first time, the best fully adjustable fit you don’t associate with carbon fiber.

The lightest wheelchair in its class
With a transport weight of just 4.2 kg, the APEX obliterates every preconceived idea about rigid chairs. It’s fully configurable to meet the needs of just about every client, and performs like a carbon fiber purebred.

Head- turning design
Check out the design and construction details on the APEX. Or, examine its innovative components and accessories, such as the integrated impact guard and rigidizing system. In a word…revolutionary.

Shed the weight. Up the performance
Available in carbon or aluminum frame, the APEX cantilever design is constructed using the industry’s most advanced materials. Plus, the APEX represents not just low frame weight. It’s also the lightest configured adjustable chair in the industry. A fully configured APEX Carbon weighs just 7kg.

Nimble and responsive
The unique rear rigidizing bar on the APEX optimizes ride performance. By increasing rear-frame rigidity, we’ve achieved an open design concept that increases lateral stability. Result — flex where and when you want it, and no sacrifice in stability for gains in comfort and ease of transport.

Sleek styling
Inspired by modern design and aesthetics, the head-turning lines on the APEX prove once again that form should follow function. We invite you to linger on the APEX’s gentle curves and bold styling. Every design detail delights the eye and excites the senses.

Adjusts to your life
As people change and evolve, so should their wheelchairs. From simple adjustments in back angle, seat and floor height to tunable rear wheel positions and seat width, the APEX is fully modular and adjustable. Plus, its laser- etched markings allow you to more easily adjust key components and specify exact positioning.
