Introducing the Maximus Folding Mobility Scooter

A mobility scooter is the key to unlocking newfound independence and freedom for those with limited mobility. The Maximus is the latest addition to CareCo’s extensive range of scooters, and it offers unparalleled performance, safety and convenience to help you live life on the go.

Here, we will find out what makes our newest folding scooter, the Maximus, stand out from the crowd, and also look at how it compares with other scooters in the range. We will also find out what life is like with the Maximus straight from the horse’s mouth, by hearing feedback from some customers who have had first-hand experience of life with the Maximus.

Sleek design and impressive features

The Maximus is the mobility scooter for life in the 2020s. Its sleek design is quite a departure from the frumpy but functional scooters of years gone by. The delta tiller bar with LCD display looks modern, and provides at-a-glance information on battery charge and most important of all, allows easy control with a fingertip touch. There’s even a USB port where you can charge your phone and other gadgets!

Design inspiration for the Maximus was taken from its sister product, the Minimus. This broke all sorts of records when it was released, including being the lightest folding four-wheel mobility scooter on the market – it weighs in at just 17.8 KG. The Maximus adds a whole lot more features and comfort, while still remaining less than 30 KG. At less than 50 cm wide it is also just as nimble and capable as the Minimus. So if you love taking your scooter round the shops or using it in other confined spaces, it won’t let you down.

As for range, the 27.6Ah battery is enough to keep you moving all day. A single charge will take you up to 25 miles, compared with the 9-mile range of the Minimus.

Unparalleled Comfort and Safety

With the Maximus, the designers have been able to incorporate best-in-class touches that were omitted from the Minimus to keep the weight down. These make all the difference to your comfort, especially if you are making the most of that battery range and undertaking some longer trips.

The ergonomic design ensures optimum comfort, and this is emphasised by the larger padded swivel seat with higher backrest and armrests. They combine with the slightly larger seven-inch wheel to ride the bumps during longer rides.

Despite the slightly increased weight, the Maximus is still eminently portable. It is quick and easy to fold and unfold. Once folded, it will fit into quite limited boot space with ease, so taking it with you in the car wherever you want to go is not an issue.

Unleashing Mobility and Freedom

When you find it hard to get around on your feet, are heavily reliant on a walking aid, or spend more time worrying about falling than taking in your surroundings, it inevitably has an impact on your independence. In fact, it can be a real challenge getting beyond your front door without assistance.

A good mobility scooter allows you to regain your independence without causing worry to either yourself or loved ones, and without having to depend on their availability to help in order to get on with what you need to do and where you need to go.

That counts for double with the Maximus. Its long-lasting 27.6Ah lithium-ion battery, enables you to embark on longer journeys without worry.

User-Friendly Controls and Intuitive Operation

At Careco, we understand that restricted mobility does not just mean problems walking. Those living with arthritis or perhaps recovering from stroke might find hand controls challenging.

The delta tiller, the clear and responsive touch screen panel and the large intuitive controls have all been created with exactly that in mind. They are easy to operate at the literal touch of a finger and combine with smooth acceleration and braking to deliver a comfortable and safe ride.  All this comes together to make the Maximus a popular choice with users of all ages living with a variety of mobility issues.

Testimonials and Success Stories

Feedback from users who have chosen the Maximus has been overwhelmingly positive so far. Here are some of the comments made by those who have had a chance to live with the Maximus and find out first-hand how it can change their lives:

  • By far the best I have tried on the market
  • All the attributes of a lightweight scooter with the added bonus of being foldable
  • Fits into the boot of a Honda Jazz without even having to move the parcel shelf
  • Well designed and high-quality
  • Ideal for small car owners

In short, users have found the Maximus to be ideal for those who like to travel further afield with their scooter, allowing them to travel anywhere independently and on their own terms. The positive impact on both physical and mental wellbeing really cannot be overstated.

Try the Maximus for yourself

The Maximus delivers the very latest mobility scooter technology in a sleek design and with comfortable features, but can still be folded and carried in the boot of a small car. It offers complete independence and freedom to those living with a range of mobility challenges.

But don’t just take our word for it. Why not pay a visit to your local CareCo and try the Maximus out for yourself to see how it compares with other scooters on the market? Or for more details just give us a call on 0333 015 5000.
