Problems With Most Mobility Scooters

Since mobility issues are common among aging Americans, we’ve spent years searching for a scooter that could help people who are unable to get around safely on their own. What we discovered was that, while there were plenty of different types of scooters, each had their drawbacks.

Smaller scooters with 3 wheels were maneuverable and relatively easy to store, but they were unstable and uncomfortable. Scooters with 4 wheels offered better stability, but had a larger turning radius, making them difficult to operate in tight spaces like supermarket aisles and restaurants.

Scooters that were supposedly “portable” could be disassembled into smaller pieces and put into car trunks, but most were difficult for seniors to lift without assistance. Worst of all, most of these scooters tended to tip over when encountering even the smallest of obstacles… putting seniors at even greater risk.

The Solution

One day, the President of firstSTREET, now known as Journey Health & Lifestyle™, was researching mobility scooters and noticed a company in England that caught his eye. Their origin went back to the late 1940s when they first made wheelchairs for British war veterans. Over the years, this family-owned business developed a wide range of scooters that were much more innovative than those available domestically. After years of R&D, they solved many of the problems with 3 and 4 wheel scooters. Their patented 5-wheel design gave their scooters both agility and stability. They named their scooter Quingo, from the Latin word for five.

They didn’t stop there. They wanted to create the ultimate portable scooter. Their engineers designed a truly remarkable ramp system and incorporated a remote control into a folding scooter and the Quingo was born. It is the only scooter in the world that loads and unloads itself into the back of SUVs, crossovers, mini-vans and hatchbacks.

Journey Health & Lifestyle™ had finally found a scooter that met the company’s lofty expectations. This scooter has earned almost unanimous ratings approval in Europe. Now, the Quingo is finally available in the United States. From its innovative design to its quality craftsmanship, the Quingo is truly the finest scooter available. Only Quingo features the 5-wheel design that gives it the ultimate in maneuverability, stability and comfort. Once you’ve experienced a Quingo for yourself, you’ll see why it’s the only scooter worthy of the Journey Health & Lifestyle™ name…and available exclusively from Journey Health & Lifestyle™.

“I love my Flyte. My little dog walks next to the scooter nicely and most of the time I can hold her leash in one hand secure in the knowledge that I can operate the scooter easily and safely with my other hand.” – Mrs. Jessiman
