The Ventura 3-Wheel Scooter comes in a standard model and a DLX model. However, they are not much different. The DLX is simply a larger version of the standard model, with 18" or 20" (the standard model comes in 18”) captain seat width, 36AH batteries (the standard model comes with 33AH) and as a consequence to these features, a maximum driving range of 22 miles (the max driving range of the standard model is 16 miles).
Yet, these 2 versions have the same features and qualification. In continuation, you will find a more detailed explanation of the characteristics of both the standard and DLX Ventura 3-Wheel Scooter.
Customizable design in order to provide comfort
“One size fits all” is a saying which doesn’t apply on mobility scooters. This was the reason for Drive Medical to produce scooters that can be customized and adjusted to the needs of each user individually.
The Seats of the 3-Wheel Ventura allow 4 height adjustments – from 20 to 23 inches. The height from the floor to seat moves from 21.5 to 23.5 inches. The dimensions of the seat itself are 18 inches (W) x 17.5 inches (D). So, depending on your needs and preferences, you can easily adjust the height of the seat.
Furthermore, the DLX model has a swivel seat which allows rotation and additional adjustment.
In addition to comfort, the 3-Wheel Ventura comes with adjustable armrest. The armrests are padded and have adjustable height and width. Furthermore, they can be completely removed if that is your preference. Apart from comfort, the armrests are proven to increase safety.
The delta tiller plays a significant role when it comes to maneuvering the scooter. So, the angle of positioning is an essential part for each user. The Ventura 3-Wheel comes with adjustable angle of the delta tiller, so each user has the opportunity to place the controls at the most convenient position for functioning.
In order to transport your scooter, fit it into the back of your car or truck. You can easily dismantle it into five parts: the seat, basket, battery pack, front section, and rear section. This operation can be done without the use of any tools.
The Ventura 3-Wheel comes in 48 inches (L) x 25 inches (W), and a total weight of 142 pounds. These features allow you to be unobtrusive in crowded areas, such as the store or the mall. Furthermore, the design is excellent for overcoming obstacles, both indoors and out.
The functionality and ergonomic design of the controls of the scooter provide users with limited strength or dexterity to be able to operate the device.
Adding to the design, the Ventura 3-Wheel comes with interchangeable color panels in blue and red color. The front plastic basket adds to functionality, yet its great design allows each user to complete the compatibility with satisfactory style.
Safe and security
With a weight capacity of 400 pounds, the Ventura 3-Wheel Scooter comes with several great features which confirm its safety level.
The Ventura 3-Wheel is equipped with 10” x 3” Flat-free front and rear tires. The anti-tip wheels are designed in order to provide greater safety for users who are taking sharp turns or eventually going upwards.
The Ventura 3-Wheel has the possibility for a freewheel mode, which can be engaged or disengaged. When freewheel mode is engaged, the scooter is in drive mode and cannot be rolling freely. On the contrary, the disengaged, freewheel mode the scooter can roll without power, freely.
However, freewheel mode shouldn’t be activated while on an incline, or while you are sitting in the unit. This can cause additional problems and movements.
The Ventura 3-Wheel Scooter comes with 2 types of brakes: regenerative and park brakes. To stop your scooter you simply need to release the throttle. The regenerative brakes are activated when you bring the throttle to a center position, and the park brakes are activated when you completely stop the scooter, more exactly lock the wheels.
The safety belt is an optional feature for the Ventura 3-Wheel. If you need a positioning belt, you can order one with your scooter. However, if you cannot decide whether you need one, you can always contact a healthcare professional or an authorized Drive Medical Provider.
Batteries and charging
In order to charge your scooter, the power must be turned off and freewheel mode must be engaged. The charger of the scooter contains a light indicator which registers different charging statuses – red, orange and green. You need to remove the charger once you see the green light, which indicates that the scooter is fully charged.
There are several factors which affect the battery range. To ensure maximum use of new batteries, you need to fully charge your scooter (8-12 hours) prior to initial use. Once the scooter reaches half capacity, charge it fully (8-12 hours) once again.
If you purchased the scooter for daily use, it is advised to charge it after every use. For instance, once you finish with daily use put it on the charger until the next day. If you don’t use the Scooter every day, you can do this once a week (10-14 hours) to keep the batteries functional.
