MOBILITY SCOOTER COVER
FULLY WEATHERPROOF & EFFORTLESS ACCESS
This project started with a few rough sketches and a lot of ambition to create a more attractive scooter cover. A streamline profile that provides a user friendly user experience, whilst offering additional storage options. The cover needed to be compatible with as many existing makes and models of mobility scooters as possible, in order to allow more people to experience the benefit of the new design.
OUR DESIGN PROCESS
The first step for our mechanical design team was to get hold of a carefully selected make and model of scooter, and study the construction and geometry restrictions this product offered. We very quickly identified suitable fixing points for the cover and detailed those as 3D CAD models.
We then looked into suitable manufacturing methods for the main frame and mechanism. They had to be reliable, easy to use and also control the end position of each hoop without requiring input from the user.
The successful concept (including the unique mechanism developed in the engineering stage) was prototyped within a week, using our trusted manufacturing partners, which led to successful trials and a happy client.
