Invacare is delighted to announce that the Invacare® Colibri™ micro lightweight scooter is the 2014 winner of one of the most prestigious design awards in the world; the Red Dot Award.
The Colibri scooter convinced a 40-member expert panel for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014 for its high design quality. Over 4815 entries from 53 countries were discussed and evaluated by the international experts, and the newly born micro lightweight scooter by Invacarewas successful and received the coveted Red Dot quality seal of approval.
It has been developed to allow people with reduced walking ability more freedom and independence to travel to the shops, park or accompany family on a day out. This personalised micro scooter guarantees maximum safety and comfort in a smart, sleek design.
Colibri features Invacare’s LiteLock™ (patent pending) system, which allows the scooter to be easily and quickly taken apart and re-assembled without tools. The Colibri is designed in such a way that it’s easy to lift into and out of a car, making it the perfect travelling companion. Its ergonomic handlebar enables several hand positions to prevent hand and wrist fatigue. In addition, its small footprint makes it easy to manoeuvre and drive easily, even in limited spaces.
The eco-friendly Colibri is easily customisable by selecting from the following options:
- A bigger battery pack for longer driving time.
- Larger wheels and seat suspension for increased comfort.
- A mix ‘n’ match colour concept that lets the individual choose between 5 different colour panels. These colour panels feature an easy clip-on mechanism and can be easily changed to a different colour.
