  • Electric Mobility (Liteway 4, 6 and 8)
  • And many others – call us on 01502 514500 to find out!

Every second hand mobility scooter we sell goes through a rigourous workshop process before becoming ‘approved’ stock. This means;

  • the scooter gets  cleaned thouroughly
  • brushes checked and replaced as necessary
  • all axles lubricated
  • steering tightened
  • tracking corrected
  • steering lubricated
  • seat tightened and lubricated
  • all electrics checked and replaced as necessary
  • batteries ‘drop tested’ and replaced if below suitable reading
  • intense test drive up slopes, over bumps etc
  • tyres replaced as necessary

And after all of this has taken place the scooter will then be quality control checked by a member of our team who is not part of the workshop, to ensure everything is as it should be. Only then do we let it be sold!

All our second hand mobility scooters come with a 6 month warranty (excluding punctures) giving you total peace of mind.

Please note we operate a warehouse separately from our shop which is not open to the public, so please call us before visiting to ensure we have the right scooter available for you.

You will find our shop in
1 Carlton Road
Lowestoft
NR33 0RU

Product of the month – Invacare Orion

Our favourite product this month is the Invacare Orion, with several customers enjoying these fantastic scooters. They have some excellent features and benefits.

Why we like them;

  1. Simple to use
  2. Super comfy suspension
  3. Great safety features
  4. High quality construction

ORION REFRESH CV04

 

The controls on the Orion are really easy to use, even for those with limited dexterity, with raised, clearly marked buttons to operate the lights, indicators, horn and speed.

The Orion has the Invacare fully suspended chassis which gives ultimate comfort, this means even with the ever worsening pavements you will still get a really comfy ride.

One of the best features of the Orion is the electronic speed reduction feature that automatically reduces speed around bends. This ensure you will always be safe and comfortable, especially when turning. This can be overridden by a button on the tiller top if necessary.

Invacare have taken their legendary  skills in powered wheelchair construction to produce a really reliable high quality scooter, which will give you years of enjoyment.

As the only Invacare dealer in the area, we would love to show you the Orion!

Facts about Wheelchairs and Mobility Scooters

Facts about Wheelchairs and Mobility Scooters

Discover below some interesting facts about mobility scooters and wheelchairs.

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters greatly enhance the quality of lives of millions of people who find it difficult or impossible to walk without assistance. Beyond the benefit of improved mobility, wheelchairs and mobility scooters enable many people to lead more productive lives at home and in the workplace and help foster feelings of independence and self-confidence. Following are some interesting facts about these remarkable devices:

*It is believed that wheelchairs have existed at least since the 6th Century B.C., based on an image found on a stone slate in China as well as a depiction of a child resting on a wheeled bed depicted on a Greek vase from the same era.

*The first historical figure to use a wheelchair was King Philip II of Spain who used one that had both arm and leg rests during the late 16th Century because he found it difficult to walk due to a case of severe gout.

*Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, used a wheelchair from 1933 to 1945 because he was unable to walk unassisted after he contracted polio. Perhaps because of the stigma attached to disabilities, only one photograph exists that shows President Roosevelt in his wheelchair.

*In 1655, Stephen Farfler, a paraplegic German watchmaker, built a self-propelling chair on a three wheel chassis. Historians believe that Farfler’s invention was a precursor to today’s bicycles and tricycles.

*In 1900 the first wheelchairs with spoke wheels were manufactured.

*The first mass-produced electric wheelchair was developed by Canadian inventor George Klein who created the device to help seriously injured veterans during World War II. However, in 1916 a tricycle was outfitted with a 1.5 horsepower engine in what is believed to be the first motorized wheelchair.

*The first mobility scooter was introduced by Sears and Roebuck in 1954. Dubbed as an electric wheelchair, the scooter wasn’t popular and was soon out of production.

*The first folding, tubular wheelchair was built in 1932 by an engineer named Harry Jennings. Jennings’ device is quite similar to modern-day folding wheelchairs.

*In 1974, the first wheelchair marathon was held in Toledo, Ohio. Bob Hall, a 24-year old paraplegic won in the event in a time of 2 hours and 54 minutes. The following year, Hall completed the Boston Marathon in his wheelchair as an unofficial contestant.

*According to the Guinness Book of World Records, a daredevil named Doc Romeo completed the first verified back flip while in a wheelchair in 2008.

*Romanian paraplegic Vasile Stoica completed a 36,000 round-the-world journey in his wheelchair in 1999, travelling through Australia, Asia, North America and Europe. Stoica holds the world record for the longest 24-hour wheelchair excursion, covering 132 kilometres.

*The longest wheelchair basketball game in history was held in 2004 by students and staff members from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The gruelling contest lasted 26 hours and three minutes.

These interesting facts were taken from Scooters Direct in America.

The medical section of the science museum in London also has an interesting section on mobility scooters and wheelchairs, well worth a look!

Your favourite mobility shop gets a new look!

Over the coming months, Lowestoft’s favourite mobility shop for everyone with a disability is getting even better. You may be aware the outside of the shop has been looking a bit drab for some time now, so we decided to do something about it!

We have started by painting the shop section of the building outside, changing it from the dark blue and cream to a far nicer Dark Grey and Off White. The signs will be updated soon as will the main shop doors. The main doors are being redesigned to make it far easier for those in powerchairs and scooters to get in and see our fantastic range of mobility equipment.

At most times we have a large range of equipment to help your disability, from mobility scooters and powerchairs to electric profiling beds and rise recline chairs, its all on show for you to try out!

If you are coming along, give us a call on 01502 514500 to check we have what you need…we look forward to seeing you at our refreshed shop!

P.S. Please don’t forget we are closed at weekends, we feel bad when people waste time and money coming to find we are closed.

Exclusive blue Kymco Aglility Mobility Scooter!

A Mobility Scooter means a lot to people, and the colour can really make a difference! One customer recently was very specific about what colour he wanted his new mobility scooter to be, and it had to be blue! The only challenge was finding a blue Kymco Agility…

Fortunately our friend Kier at Kymco sourced the mobility scooter for us as it is the only one in the country!

The agility is an amazing mobility scooter, its small size makes it the perfect scooter to fit into lifts and other tight spaces, but it still boasts an 8mph top speed, with a full digital display. If great looks, speed and comfort matter to you then this could be the perfect mobility scooter for you!

Don’t worry the other colours are easier to source than blue!

Call 01502 514500 for advice on choosing a mobility scooter.
