This week Brook Miller Mobility attended the Pride Mobility 2019 Annual Roadshow at the beautiful Holdsworth House in Halifax. It was a great opportunity to meet other stockists of the Pride range  and test drive some of their new mobility scooters and power chairs.

What’s new at Pride Mobility?

We got an exclusive preview of the new products that will be coming to the Brook Miller Mobility Superstore over the coming months. Hosted by the Pride Mobility area managers, who gave a very exciting overview of the changes that have been happening behind the scenes of this amazing company. A company whom Brook Miller Mobility have worked with for many years. This includes their plans for a new multimillion-pound extension to their current warehouse.

The proposed new building will allow Pride to stock more parts and equipment meaning they can provide an even better level of customer service and after sales care. Building work is due to start imminently at their warehouse in Oxfordshire and will create an extra 22,000 sq. foot of storage.

Brand New Products

Pride ZT10

Brand new technology that has been in development and coming soon includes the Pride iTurn® Technology. This is ground-breaking technology patented by Pride. It provides 4-wheel stability with a 3-wheel turning circle. This development has been long awaited by customers requiring tight space maneuverability so we at Brook Miller cannot wait to have this option available for our customers when the products officially launch.

According to the Pride area managers early customer testing has produced excellent feedback so we believe the iTurn® technology will be very well received. The Pride 10ZT 6mph scooter with iTurn® technology should be available in the coming months, with an 8mph scooter available next year.

Improvements and Upgrades

Following the introductions to the 3 new products we then received an update on some of the other developments that have been going on behind the scenes over the last 6-18 months, including upgrades and improvements to some of the existing scooters and powerchairs.

Jazzy Air®2.

These include the Jazzy Air®2. The always popular, industry renowned, Jazzy Air® elevated power chair has received a major upgrade in the 2nd generation version.

The Jazzy Air®2 now raises to 12” which is an upgrade from the previous 10” height, whilst still retaining the 11 second speed for raising and lowering. The new version also sits 5cm lower in its seat to floor height creating a big improvement for customers to sit comfortably at table height and lowering the centre of gravity for improve stability.

It also features an angle adjustable captain seat for a more natural seating position and drives safely at a 4mph speed whilst in the elevated position. All the above improvements are designed to improve eye to eye contact, being able to sit at a natural height, whether it’s whilst talking with someone standing or sitting. The improvements also allow travel at a natural walking pace whilst at the elevated height, meaning you can hold an eye to eye conversation on the move.

The Jazzy Air®2 also now has a new matte range of colour options including black, blue and garnet red. This adds to the existing 7 colours in the range, which just adds to the restyled new modern sophisticated design.

The Jazzy® Zero Turn

The Jazzy® Zero Turn has received an upgrade to increase the user weight capacity from 21st 6lb to 23st 3lb meaning the amazing iTurn Technology is now available for even more customers, with it’s incredibly small 38” turning radius. We were told Baroness Thomas of Winchester MBE, has a Jazzy® Zero Turn. After struggling with previous scooters in the narrow halls of Westminster with its tight corners she’s a huge fan of the technology.
