The Drive Medical Zoome Flex is one of several products returning independence of movement to those finding themselves challenged with mobility for whatever reason. For certain, this and products like it represent some of the best of what technology has done, can do, and will continue to do: make real, discernible, material improvements to the lives of so very many people.
Everything about the Drive Medical Zoome is designed with convenience and portability in mind. The light weight and folding mechanism serve to really drive this design feature home, making the scooter ideal for those seeking to take it around on an adventure or six. The easy throttle control and delta tiller further maximize the Zoome Flex' usability for those of limited upper body mobility and strength, and the rear anti-tip wheels provide security up steeper inclines. The thirteen miles of use on a full battery mean that a day's travel, for most days, can be accommodated on just one charge.
For the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who rely on them, mobility scooters are depended on for not just mere movement, but freedom. From practical, inventive ways riders use them to claim their freedom — like the Australian man who adapted his scooter to use it to mow his own lawn — to heartwarming stories of their charitable donation to particularly afflicted groups such as combat veterans, mobility scooters are an example of technology that has unassumingly, without much flash, varnish, or fanfare, changed the world. This is a standard to live up to for anyone who considers how advancements, made or supported by them, can and ought to be directed in years to come.
