The Quickie Krypton R Rigid Wheelchair
The Quickie Krypton R is our rigid option, and our most EFFICIENT. The rigid axle tube is very stiff and reduces overall movement in the chair allowing more of the energy you put into the chair to be transferred to forward propulsion. The backrest can be folded and the rear wheels removed to allow for a lightweight folding package to be lifted into the car. The transfer weight of the chair can start from as little as 3.65kg, meaning less stress on your shoulders and giving you the FREEDOM to live life on your terms.
PIONEERING wheelchairs didn’t always exist… QUICKIE created them. VISIONARY Quickie founder Marilyn Hamilton designed the Quickie 1 in the 1980s. Bred out of frustration with the wheelchairs available at the time, she set out to create a chair made from lightweight hang gliding materials and developed the first lightweight adjustable wheelchair to provide true energy efficiency. Thirty years on that thirst for more ENERGY EFFICIENT wheelchairs remains and the desire to use the latest technology is still in our DNA. That’s why we have taken the leading technology of our time to create the most advanced manual wheelchair to date – the Krypton.
Quickie’s latest development #FASHIONABLYLATE. CARBON FIBRE has been used in many industries for a long time and has been available in wheelchairs for a number of years. QUICKIE have persisted to optimise how carbon fibre is manufactured to create the perfect balance of strength and rigidity. The white coats in our APPLIED SCIENCES division have endeavoured to search out the best techniques – for the best results. The result? A seat frame braided from continuous carbon fibre threads. Our X-BRAID technology is unique to QUICKIE and delivers a carbon fibre wheelchair like never before.
