Product Spotlight : The Jazzy Air

Introducing the New Jazzy Air ® Power Chair with Eye-Level Technology! A New Era in Power Mobility –  It’s Social Mobility.

Featuring Pride Mobility’s new Power-Elevating Power Chair with Eye-Level Technology, the Jazzy Air ® elevates you to an average standing height in just 16 seconds. Safely drives while elevated up to 3.5 MPH, lower it to the standard seat-to-floor height and it travels 4 MPH.

What does this mean to you? Quick and easy access to your environment.

 

Jazzy Air Eye-Level Social Mobility

Jazzy Air Elevated

At home, those upper cabinets, stove-tops, sinks and bookshelves that have been just out of reach are now accessible. Transfers to higher beds, stools, into your Truck or SUV are accomplished with ease due to the full 10 inches of vertical rise in the Jazzy Air ®. At work, eye-level technology allows you to be seated at your workbench, counter-top or bar-height table interacting face to face with those around you.

Even more importantly it’s social mobility.

Traveling forward with the seat elevated allows you to walk and converse with a friend eye-to-eye. Feel confident in crowds, up where you need to be – looking at, not up to others. Shopping takes on a different dimension when you can see, touch and reach the displays from your new point of view!

Technically, Pride has thought of everything in this new product. The Jazzy Air ® is standard with a weight capacity of 300 lbs., and a top speed of 4 mph (with the seat down). Mid-wheel 6 Drive Design and 10 inch flat free tires give it a tight turning radius of 22.5 inches for great maneuverability. Patented, locking Active-Trac suspension for enhanced performance and maximum stability, and bright LED marker lights for safety. Travel range is up to 15.29 miles per charge with the standard U-1 batteries, and upgraded 40AH batteries are available to extend that range to 18.4 miles on a charge. The contoured high-back, reclining sport seat is available in 16”, 18” and 20” wide.

Time to Spring Forward on a new set of wheels!

As a Product Expert at SpinLife, I receive calls from our customers who are so excited after trying out their new mobility scooters. They tell me how great it is to be able to go shopping or out to the park on their own. And they wonder why it took them so long to decide on getting their mobility scooter!View More: http://alisonepps.pass.us/revolutionsinc

What about you?  Have you decided that a travel mobility scooter might be right for you? If so, here are some things to think about.

In order to get the best service and life from your mobility travel scooter it is important to select a product that suits your body style and physical limitations.

The weight capacity of the mobility scooter should be above your body weight. If you are too heavy for your scooter you will get poor performance from the batteries and the motor is likely to wear out too soon. If you have long legs there are models that will be more comfortable for you than others.

featuring Delta tiller Mobility Scooter

A mobility scooter with a Delta tiller would be better for you if you have weakness or loss of use in one hand.  The Delta can be operated with one hand. If you have difficulty bending over, choose a product that can be charged from a port on the tiller.

Where do you plan on using the mobility scooter?

If you need a scooter inside your home you may consider a three wheel travel model.  They turn more sharply and make it easier to go through doors and around furniture.

Four wheel models are more stable than three wheels. If you have any concerns about “turning over” a four wheel version would be best for you. Consider a four wheeler if you are going to be driving in your yard or   other rough terrain (such as gravel or broken side walks) If you have balance or coordination issues, the four wheel is your best bet.

Down the sidewalk and beyond with a scooter

 

Get Outside With a Scooter.

Having a mobility issue shouldn’t steal away the things you enjoy in life. At SpinLife, we get that and we want to do all we can to help you continue to enjoy your life.

Victory 10 LX with CTSAs I sat at my computer contemplating this subject I took a phone call from a gentleman who wanted to get outside with a mobility scooter. He expressed to me that he just wanted to get out in his yard into his garden and spend time outside with his dogs. He can no longer walk but is not ready to give up his loves…the outdoors and his pets.

Whether you want to work in your flower bed or go down to the pond for a little fishing you should be able to do so in a safe manner! Fortunately, there are many full sized and all terrain scooters that were designed with those purposes in mind.

So, when would you want to consider a full size or all terrain scooter?

  1. If your weight exceeds the limitations for a smaller scooter.
  2. If you need to drive across the yard, gravel or other uneven terrain.
  3. If you travel longer distances.
  4. If you still like going out into nature or bounce around the farmland!

Full size scooters have a weight capacity of 300 lbs. or more. They normally have at least 10” wheels. Some have solid tires and some are pneumatic for a smoother ride. Many have suspension, full light packages and sleek styling. You will enjoy a longer drive range on the larger batteries. Continue Reading
