The New Aria 1.0
We’re proud to introduce our new 1.0 wheelchair, our latest lightweight wheelchair with a welded fixed frame.
FROM THE 1.0MG TO THE NEW 1.0
The new Aria 1.0 is the evolution of the first iconic Aria 1.0Mg wheelchair.
The first 1.0Mg allowed us to be recognised in the wheelchair industry for its unique design.
Seven years after its launch, we decided to update the wheelchair 1.0, improving its performance.
THE ARIA 1.0 IS A FIXED WELDED FRAME WHEELCHAIR
When we started to create the new 1.0, we were sure about one thing: keeping its iconic design.
The new 1.0 wheelchair has retained the shape of the 1.0Mg with its clean, linear design, featuring a single frame line. In this new version, in order to guarantee the best possible product, the frame is completely welded to the user's measurements.
With this new product, the Aria fixed-frame wheelchair range is completed: we can now offer our users two different multi-adjustable wheelchairs (2.0Al with aluminium frame and ULTRA with magnesium frame) and two welded wheelchairs (1.0 with aluminium frame and Speciale with magnesium frame).
The most important new features of this product are:
- A tapered front design
- The ergonomic seat
- The removable postural backrest
This is why Aria 1.0 is the product that ensures the best posture over time!
The tapered front design ensures good leg restraint.
With the new 1.0, we introduced also the ergonomic seat.
Now it is possible to configure the new 1.0 by choosing from five different seat inclinations given by five different frame degrees, which allow a tilt between the rear seat height (SHR) and the front seat height (SHF) between 20 mm to 100 mm (in increments of 20 mm) - see the different configuration possibilities HERE
WHY THE ERGONOMIC SEAT?
The ergonomic seat provides different benefits:
- an improved spinal alignment
- better contact with the back support
- better stability, positioning, and pressure distribution
- improve rear wheel access for more efficient propulsion
- optimisation of the contact area by the redistribution for the bony prominences and encouraging pelvic stability.
Furthermore, its shape allows the thighs to be more level and comfortable for improving functional activity and seating resistance.
It also helps to avoid leg contractions, especially for paraplegic users.
In the new Aria 1.0, it’s possible to choose between the adjustable tensionable seat or the carbon fibre seat pan fixed on the frame.
ARIA’S POSTURAL BACKREST INCLUDED
In addition, the standard configuration of the new 1.0 includes the Aria BKRTA postural backrest.
The BKRTA is a super-lightweight postural aluminium backrest for wheelchairs that adapts perfectly to the back and lower back and provides good support without inhibiting the upper body and arms movement.
The Aria BKRTA backrest is available in two versions: Deep and Active. The Deep version guarantees greater stabilization of the trunk than the Active version, which instead ensures maximum freedom of movement and flexion of the trunk.
The postural backrest, combined with the ergonomic seat, ensures the best postural position during time.
In addition, the postural backrest:
- helps to keep the back in a healthy and comfortable position
- helps with spinal alignment
- helps with posture
With the new 1.0 wheelchair, you can have an all-in-one wheelchair that adapts perfectly to your body shape and needs.
A WELDED ALUMINIUM FRAME
With the introduction of the ergonomic seat and the tapered front design, the frame design has many curves. We knew that these elements could create some problems when bending magnesium.
Therefore, instead of magnesium, we preferred aluminium to preserve the shape and ensure strength.
The aluminium frame weighs less than 2kg.
THE ARIA 1.0: THE PERFECT WHEELCHAIR FOR POWER ASSIST ADD-ONS
Another benefit of this wheelchair is the adaptability with the power assist wheelchair add-ons, such as Triride and Klaxon.
When using these devices, the front wheels of the wheelchair are raised slightly, which means that all the weight is discharged onto the backrest instead of the seat. In the case of the new 1.0, the stresses and pressures that the ride produces on the wheelchair are distributed and discharged from the backrest to the entire frame evenly and efficiently thanks to the unique chassis design created by the unique bending of the aluminium component.
A WHEELCHAIR MADE TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS
The new Aria 1.0 is a welded fixed-frame wheelchair that offers several advantages. In addition to being made-to-measure, like all Aria wheelchairs, every aspect can be customised.
Try configuring your Aria 1.0 and take a look at all the options available! We recommend starting creating your Aria 1.0 wheelchair by first choosing the seat angle, and then selecting the type of frame angle that best suits your needs.
Of course, for precise product configuration, please contact one of our official distributors or one of our product specialists to take the correct measurements.
