More comfort

and an ingenious suspension system

summary of the ALEX WHEELCHAIR

The YOU-Q Alex is an electric wheelchair with extra comfort and a contemporary style. Using the existing frame as a starting point, Scope Design developed a new suspension system that not only absorbs shocks, but also vibrations. New wheel covers and a different color scheme give the design extra shine. The short distance between the independently moving wheels makes the wheelchair extremely manoeuvrable.

Users were asked about their experiences, preferences and wishes, for example with regard to the colors of the paintwork and cushions. Of YOU-Q the results were discussed and it was jointly established to what extent these preferences and wishes were practically achievable.

The new suspension system , which consists of separate suspension arms for the front and rear wheels, has been developed after extensive testing with prototypes.
