The Pride Jazzy Zero Turn technology gives the scooter the turning radius of a 3-wheel scooter with the stability and performance of a 4-wheel one – the best of both worlds. A turning radius of just 28 inches (97 cm) means the Zero Turn is much more manoeuvrable than equivalent scooters – particularly useful indoors, such as when navigating shops, or even your home. For those that need a mobility aid to get around inside a care home, but struggle to get on with the controls of a powerchair, the Zero-Turn is an excellent option, able to navigate tight turns and corners with ease.
The dual motors – unique to a scooter – mean the Zero Turn also has added traction; ideal when navigating rougher terrain outdoors. This combines well with the Comfort-Trac front and rear suspension that many will recognise from the Apex Rapid, which provides a smooth ride. Higher-capacity 21 Ah batteries give the ZT more power over a longer range than the small 12 or 18 Ah batteries found on most boot scooters.
Further advanced technology on the Zero Turn includes a USB port on the tiller, allowing you to charge your smartphone, tablet or satnav on the go. LED lights at the front and back keep you visible whilst using minimal power. The charging port in the tiller allows easy access when charging, while the battery box can still be removed should you wish to charge it separately from the scooter, for example, if storing the scooter in a car.
As a boot scooter, the Zero Turn can be easily dismantled into five pieces for transport in a car. It is slightly heavier than a regular boot scooter due to the dual motors and larger batteries, meaning the heaviest piece is 21.7 kg (3.4 stone). The scooter is also longer than most boot scooters at 45.7 in (116 cm), which means that it will not be able to use the wheelchair space on most buses.
What is a mobility scooter?
A mobility scooter is an electric vehicle that can provide a simple and affordable way of getting out and about independently if you have mobility problems. A typical mobility scooter looks a bit like the ATTO Sport but functions more like a cross between a motorised wheelchair and a motor scooter. However, they travel much more slowly than motor scooters, with maximum speeds of 8mph for road scooters or 4mph on pavements.
Although there are different types available, all mobility scooters have bike-style steering (a ‘tiller’) to direct the wheels, large padded upright seats and simple controls. They are powered by batteries.
Who is a mobility scooter suitable for?
Mobility scooters can be ideal if you have limited mobility but still want to be able to visit friends and family nearby, do your shopping or get around town without relying on others to help you get around.
They’re suitable if you have a good sitting balance, the ability to step on and off, adequate eyesight and a good memory. However, if you have problems with any of the above, or if you have a medical condition that is likely to change, this might not be the best solution for you.
