Benefits

The 5 wheel Quingo advantage

5 wheels are more comfortable than 4, are more stable than 3


 

3 Wheel mobility scooterThe 3 Wheel Mobility Scooter

In the early days, there were just 3 wheeled scooters that were very simple in design. On the up side they were short, lightweight and manoeuvrable in restricted areas, on the down side they could be dangerously unstable when in inexperienced hands or on uneven terrain. This could potentially lead to vehicles tipping and to serious injury. This instability also made users feel less confident in the ability of the scooter to transport them safely.

The industry then turned its attention to the 4 wheeled scooter which addresses many of the stability issues but in doing so created two new major disadvantages. The first was restricted leg space and poor posture caused by the vehicle’s layout. The second was the increased length of the vehicle inherent in all 4 wheelers, which in turn meant a poor turning circle, poor weight distribution and restricted manoeuvrability. And until recently, those were your only options.

(AVC) Advanced Vehicle Concepts took up the challenge to solve these long standing issues and design a new breed of mobility scooter that would perform beyond these limitations. Introducing the world’s first true 5 wheel scooters with Quintell Technology. This offers genuine stability and safety benefits for users while maintaining agility. The unique ergonomic anatomical driving position achieved using Quintell™ technologies assures a natural posture and comfortable ride.

 


Enhanced Stability

Only a Quingo mobility scooter offers it’s unique 5 wheel stability system which means a better turning circle without compromising agility. It means superior control on inclines and kerbs, Quingo’s forward sitting position means safer weight distribution for hills and bumps. Even in extreme situations Quingo’s active tri-wheel steering easily navigates and stabilises your scooter on uneven gradients smoothly and safely.

Unequalled Agility

Quingo mobility scooters have a turning circle from as little as 102cm, this means safer and tighter turning in shops and confined spaces. When directly compared to a 4 wheel mobility scooters of comparable length, Quingo not only enjoys vastly improved manoeuvrability, it means significantly less reversing and fewer 3 point turns are required. This means safer agility in small local shops and malls or in any area where space is limited.

Better Comfort

With Quingo’s feet forward adaptive footplates the advantages are clear. Quingo is the only mobility scooter range that offers adaptive footplates and full ergonomic posture control, providing superior comfort on longer journeys. This means less stress for back, hips, knees and ankle joints with its precise leg and foot positioning. Quingo mobility scooters have 80% more foot space than an equivalent length 4 wheel mobility scooter which will give the best possible anatomical driving position.

Safer Kerb Handling

Kerbs are an unavoidable menace to any mobility scooter rider. Many mobility scooters handle kerbs when approaching head on, only the Quingo’s 5 wheel system offers the ability to climb and descend kerbs at angles, it is designed to cope with kerbs at 45° degree angles up to 3 inches. It works equally well going up kerbs as well as coming down. In addition Quingo’s Kerbmaster prevents tipping and eliminates beaching.

Superior Adaptability

Only Quingo mobility scooters have posture control with adaptive footplates, it means feet and legs can be supported independently and precisely. Quingo offers a staggering 80% more foot space (based on conventional 4 wheel mobility scooters), with adjustments in multiple areas to ensure a natural and comfortable ride with maximum comfort for every journey. Larger Quingo models offer a specifically advanced seat slide which offers more access space when it is needed.

Quingo Flyte Mobility Scooter

Mrs Brocklebank – Rotherham
I love my Flyte and all the neighbours watch and laugh when I go out with my Jack Russell running behind. She is 12 years old now and when she gets tired she sits down and I let her ride in the footplate area. She loves it. It is seriously making a massive difference to me. At Christmas time I was able to spend time with my grandchildren and we were able to go up and down the seafront. I am really pleasantly surprised at the difference it is making to my life. To be honest, I was a little naïve when I went into this (buying a mobility scooter) and although I signed up quite happily, I started to worry that it was a lot of money. However my concerns were ill-founded and I have to say the scooter and docking station is worth every penny. I would recommend it to anybody.

David absolutely loves the scooter; it’s given him his independence back. It is wonderful for him just to be able to get out of the house again and do things by himself for the first time in a long time. It’s perfect!

Oh, I’m getting on very well with my scooter and it’s making a big difference for me. I can get out and about now when I want to; even if it’s just going into Town. Before I got it I couldn’t even get out of my flat.
