Rigid wheelchairs

Advantages of a rigid wheelchairs

Rigid frame wheelchairs have a decisive advantage over folding wheelchairs thanks to their welded or permanently bonded frame. The force applied acts directly on the wheels and is converted into kinetic energy without major losses. This is particularly important for weak or power-reduced users. In frames with a folding mechanism, however, some of this energy is absorbed by the various articulated parts of the wheelchair. This means that less muscle power is converted into kinetic energy. At the same time, rigid frame chairs are significantly lighter than foldable wheelchairs because they do not have the weighty folding mechanism.
All these features provide such excellent driving characteristics that even the very youngest from around 12 months can independently move in their wheelchair and discover their environment.

Rigid wheelchairs for children

Sweeping around the bends, chasing after the others and getting to where the other children are. Just be there. Part of a community. So in the middle, instead of on the outside. This is possible if the lack of mobility is well compensated for.
Especially for children with reduced mobility it is important that they can keep up with the other children right from the start. Then they learn that they are just as valuable as any other children. This strengthens their self-esteem. And it makes them autonomous in their small area early on. Because there is a lot to discover.
With the children’s wheelchairs Mio, Mio Carbon and Mio Move, SORG has developed a concept for early care so that children with limited mobility (depending on the particular clinical picture) can actively shape their lives. For this reason, every wheelchair in the Mio family, like all other SORG models, is custom-made to the individual needs of the user.

Paediatric wheelchair Mio

The Mio family


The children’s active wheelchair Mio is a lightweight rigid wheelchair for children from about 12 months, specially developed for early childhood education. It compensates very well for their limited mobility and radius of action. And it supports their physical development right from the start so that young users can explore their world independently. Thanks to its innovative lightweight construction, the grow-along function and its attractive and functional design, this active wheelchair guarantees the greatest possible mobility and support in the natural development of its young users.

Mio Carbon

The ultra-light children’s wheelchair Mio Carbon is a very small, agile wheelchair for children (seat width up to 30 cm). The seat plate, hollow back, active side parts and foot plate are made of ultra-light and highly stable carbon. Mio Carbon is therefore particularly suitable for all children with reduced strength and muscle tone. Through its growable function Mio Carbon remains a long-standing and reliable companion in therapy and everyday life.

Mio Move


The tiltable children’s wheelchair Mio Move is, as third in the league, by its tiltable-function the perfect combination of rehab buggy and active wheelchair. In Mio Move, the child can switch between active and passive phases at any time, without having to change the aid. A rehab buggy as an additional aid is therefore superfluous.

All Mio variants are available in two different frame shapes (retro or bull shape). And all Mio variants are available in two different abductions.

Rigid wheelchairs for adolescent and adults


The Airon is ideal for teenagers and adults, already from a seat width of 30 cm. This makes it the perfect follow-up wheelchair for anyone who has outgrown their wheelchair or needs a new wheelchair and wants to continue to prioritize activity. “Growing further” is also no problem for the Airon. Depending on it´s configuration, Airon can grow in seat width (+2 cm), seat depth (+3 cm) and back height (+5 cm) without additional parts. The Airon offers a wealth of equipment and setting options. This makes it a reliable partner in everyday life for a long time.

Vector Family

With the Vector family, we offer a further option for wheelchair fitting in the rigid frame range, designed primarily for young people and adults with a seat width of 26 cm or more. A special feature of the Vector family is the enormous range of therapeutic options. And: every Vector can be adapted at any time to possible changes in the clinical picture or course of therapy. Even retrospectively.


The Vector is the follow-up model for all those, who have outgrown their Mio or their children’s wheelchair. Vector is extremely versatile, variably applicable, shapely and exceptionally stable. All physiological parameters can be fine-tuned to the possibilities of the user.

Vector BSA

Vector BSA (BSA = BeinStützeAbschwenkbar) can be adjusted to the physiological possibilities of his user, just as finely as Vector. Vector BSA offers an additional function of adaptation through the detachable leg support. This allows the user to approach much closer to the everyday things of life. The transfer into / out of the wheelchair can take place closer to the body and therefore can be handled by the user on his own. Or the wheelchair user can use the residual forces in his legs for tripping.
