Mobile Scooters for Disabled People
There has never been a wider choice of mobile scooters for disabled people before.
Though choice, and indeed competition, is always a good thing, it can also lead to confusion and difficulty in judging which scooter is right for your needs.
There is also the “me too!” factor to consider in the manufacture of mobile scooters for disabled people. This is where a company sees an emerging market, in which they have no experience, and decide they wish to exploit it.
In all likelihood this purely for-profit motivation is bound to create poorly conceived end products by its very nature.
There are many other things that are at fault with this approach and which make for poor, or even potentially dangerous, mobile scooters for disabled people.
What these companies neglect to understand is that these are complex medical devices.
From the outset these cheap mobility scooters are built to a price, as this is the only way in which these scooters can differentiate themselves in this extremely competitive marketplace.
Though this would appear to benefit you, the buyer, it in fact creates a sea of poorly designed, cheaply manufactured and low-quality scooters.
The explanation for the inadequate design is twofold.
Any design process has two very significant phases both of which have hefty costs associated with them.
The first phase is research and development, in order to create any product that is highly suitable for the task it will be expected to perform, and accomplishes it purpose with ease, you must fully comprehend the nature of the user.
With a desire to get to market quickly this is almost always neglected, much to the detriment of the finished product, with copying other designs being all too commonplace.
The copying itself may be undertaken ineptly, due to a lack of understanding of what certain features accomplish in the scooter’s functionality, either negating certain functions and even worse creating defective or dysfunctional components.
This is in stark contrast to an established designer and manufacturer, whose research and development phase will be lengthy, and greatly enriched by the prior knowledge that they possess, and can bring, to the design process.
The next area of significant cost is the design phase.
Every detail of every component of mobile scooters for disabled persons must be carefully drafted to ascertain their efficacy and durability. Due to the potential that the user of the device may have significant disabilities, failure of any component could be more than an inconvenience.
Additionally, there will probably be little attention paid to the usability and comfort the scooter offers with items like seats often being a last consideration and bought in to meet a cost cutting criteria.
The next way in which the cheaper scooter may fail is choice of unsuitable, or poor quality, components many of which will not have been manufactured specifically for the purpose they are tasked with. Either of these make it very likely the vehicle will be at best unreliable.
Any reputable manufacturer of these medical devices will spend a great deal of time testing, and assuring, the quality of their products. Though this may be carried out “in house”, you can assume far greater diligence has been observed when the scooters have been examined and verified by independent organisations, such as the assessments carried out on our scooter range.
Our scooters were both more stable according to Frazer-Nash and offered greater comfort than a four-wheel scooter according to research undertaken by Davis Associates.
So, what makes the Quingo range of mobile scooters for disabled people so exceptional?
First of all, our extensive understanding of creating devices that enable people gives us prodigious insight when we are planning any product.
This has allowed us to invent our worldwide patented Quintell™ Technologies which are exclusively available only on Quingo scooters.
Innovations such as our KerbMaster™ anti-tip/ anti-beach system, our Quintell™ 5-wheel Stabilising System and Quintell™ Active Tri-Wheel Steering make for an incredibly safe scooter.
The benefits on offer from Quintell™ Technologies extend to providing you greatly enhanced comfort.
The feet-forward position afforded by our five-wheel configuration makes for up to 80% more room being available for your feet. Adaptive footplates increase you comfort further and with the fully adjustable seats combine to offer vastly improved posture.
We don’t just expect you to take our word for this, we want you to experience the Quingo Advantage for yourself, with a completely free home demo and test drive. We are sure, once you try our range of scooters, you will find the difference between “me too!” and this is the one!
This is why, no matter what, we advise you to buy your mobile scooters for disabled people from us.
