A New Take on the Boot Scooter

September 2017 / New Launch

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).

Anti slip range

Drive Medical Launches
New Anti-Slip Range

April 2015 / New Launch

Drive now offers an excellent range of Anti-Slip and Grip products.


This new portfolio of products have been developed to help individuals maintain and promote independent living.

Unlike other Anti-Slip and grip products on the market, this range is made entirely from silicone rubber, a material that is non-toxic and chemically inert. It does not contain phthalate plasticisers, which are necessary ingredients of other materials with similar Anti-Slip properties and which are banned or restricted in Europe and parts of the USA. It is also fully washable and autoclave safe up to 250ºC.

The full range of Silicone products are antimicrobial providing continuous built-in protection against a wide range of bacteria including MRSA, E.coli and Klebsiella. They also protect against mould and fungi.

We offer a range of extremely effective Anti-Slip products that provide grip on dry, smooth and slippery surfaces, including tables, work tops, trays, handles and smooth floor surfaces. Our specially designed materials, mats and grip products prevent movement and provide enhanced grip and purchase on handles and lids. 

This range of Anti-Slip products can be used as a solution in the home to maintain independent living and can also be used in clinical and care home environments. In addition, it is useful in vehicles, mobile homes and boats to provide stability to objects.

All these Anti-Slip products are fully washable and may be cleaned with plenty of warm, soapy water. This range of products (except for Anti-Slip strips and circles) should not be used when wet and will not provide grip until dry. It is preferable to air dry the material to avoid leaving lint and dust which can transfer from cloths.

This range of Anti-Slip products are tough, flexible and durable and will last for many years. It will retain its Anti-Slip properties throughout its life span, provided that it is cleaned periodically.
