Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare has successfully advanced the concept of the traditional ‘mini’ or ‘portable’ scooter with the introduction of the Explorer.
This latest addition to the popular Scout range of scooters offers all the advantages of portability and ease of use, enhanced further by comfortable all-round suspension and a cushioned seat for excellent ride quality. The new scooter also includes a powerful battery pack capable of delivering an extended range of up to 13 miles on a full charge.
Dubbed ‘the portable scooter with a spring in its step’, the Explorer has been designed to deliver the optimum combination of performance, comfort and style. The supreme comfort seat features width-adjustable flip up armrests and swivels a full 360° to facilitate easy on and off transfers. The removable battery pack has a carry handle and locking mechanism, with two 22Ah MK airline-friendly batteries delivering a smooth top speed of 4mph.
Safety has been a prime consideration during the design process, with the Explorer featuring an automatic electromagnetic brake system, rear anti tip wheels as standard and an anti-rollback device that prevents the scooter from rolling backwards on hills. It’s a stylish design too, with silver wheel hubs and black puncture-proof non-marking tyres, and is fitted with a removable front storage basket.
The Explorer is easy to manouevre with delta bars as standard, easy tiller adjustment and a freewheeling function allowing the scooter to move without switching the motor on. Once under power, the Explorer is capable of handling gradients up to 8 degrees. It splits easily into four sections for storage and transportation, with a removable seat and fold down tiller, whilst the heaviest component weighs just 19.5kg (43lb).
