Health Care & Mobility Equipment
Originally, you could only buy mobility scooters of the 3-wheel variety. While they were mostly compact, light and manoeuvrable in tight spaces, their flaw was they were dangerously unstable, putting users at risk of and often inflicting serious injury due to tipping as soon as they were used on un even surfaces.
The solution was of course to build scooters with 4 wheels and, while this addressed the stability issues experienced with 3 wheeled scooters, it created a new set of problems. By adding the extra wheel, the leg space available was severely restricted leading to poor posture and therefore discomfort on even relatively short journeys.
Scooters became larger and more cumbersome. Turning circles expanded and poor weight distribution resulted in restricted manoeuvrability and a new source of instability. Engineers and manufactures simply accepted these problems and you, the users would have to choose what was more important, agility or stability and safety.
However, the manufactures of Quingo; Advanced Vehicle Concepts (AVC) came up with an innovative solution in the world’s first true 5-wheel scooters featuring Quintell™ technologies.
The 5 wheel concept brings genuine stability and safety benefits with Quingo scooters being able to mount kerbs at anything up to a 45° angle, something other scooters just cannot do.
All this while maintaining agility that is comparable to many three wheel scooters, with a turning circle of as little as just 107cm. With the addition of Quintell™ Kerbmaster Powered Anti-Grounding and Anti-Tipping we believe we offer a range of the very safest scooters on the market today.
Thanks to their 5-wheel design all Quingo’s benefit from a staggering 80% more foot area than a comparable length four wheel vehicle and ergonomic posture control and Quintell™ adaptive footplates this combines to bring greater comfort, even on longer outings.
