The Catalyst Difference

There is a Catalyst Difference

While every model in the Catalyst family has a different axle plate with adjustment capabilities unique to each, they all take advantage of the same innovative design features that set them apart from other frames in the market. From the patented frame design constructed from 7000 series aluminum to the dual interlocking cross braces with a power x-hinge, there truly is a "Catalyst Difference".

Catalyst Universal Axel Plate

Universal Axle Plate

The Universal Axle Plate does it all. Achieve seat-to-floor heights in 1/2" increments and adjust CG over a 3" range. With a more rigid design than its competitors, Catalyst 5 offers the best performing ride in its class.

Catalyst 300lbs

300 lb. Standard Weight Capacity

Light is great but lighter AND stronger is better. Catalyst 5 has a mere transport weight of 12.8 lb.* and a standard weight of 20.8 lb.**. Did we mention it has a 300 lb. standard weight capacity? That makes Catalyst 5 the lightest AND strongest folding wheelchair in the K0005 category.
