Jet Powered Mobility Scooter Revolutionizes Mobility Transportation
Date:1/13/2010

A new jet powered mobility scooter from Allegro Medical Supply is taking the medical equipment world by storm, and experts think the technology could have far reaching implications for senior citizens across the country.

(PRWEB) January 12, 2010 – Allegro Medical has partnered with billionaire Sir Richard Brandstone of Virgin Atlantis to launch a Jet Powered Mobility Scooter business called Virgin Mobility. With his sights already set on space travel and his own international airline well established, the only outstanding transportation industries to conquer remain time travel and senior mobility transportation. Sir Richard has embarked on a joint venture with the long-established Internet retailer of medical supplies, AllegroMedical.com. Allegro Medical will be the exclusive US distributor of the “Spock Mark V”, aptly named after famed Star Trek character “Spock.”

“Our partnership with Sir Richard is a logical choice – his companies have set the standard in jet-powered transportation and will continue to do so into the foreseeable future,” said Greg Clark, Vice-President of Operations for Allegro Medical. “Partnering with Virgin Mobility is a way to ensure that we’ll still have a share of the scooter market.”

Powered by twin engine jet turbines, the mobility scooter is capable of going from 0 to 100 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed just under that of an F-18 Super Hornet. Some of the unique features of the scooter include its double wishbone suspension and uni-body design, which test pilot Charlie Yeeger said made it handle “Unlike anything I’ve ever piloted before.”

Though the product has yet to reach commercial production, pre-sales of the Spock Mark V number in the hundreds according to sources at Allegro Medical. Early buyers include most of the Star Trek cast, including Leonard Nemoi, Wiliam Shatnir and Ricardo Montalban.

“We were really fortunate that we were able to incorporate so many of our other technologies into this product,” said Eve St. Laurent, Brandstone's Senior Director of Mobility Transportation and Space Tourism. “We were originally hoping to unveil this scooter by 2015, but thanks to a few breakthroughs we’re five years early.”

Mobility experts think that the technology breakthroughs that come from the jet powered mobility scooter will revolutionize the future of transportation. By substantially breaking the 7 mph barrier of the traditional power scooter, senior citizens will be able to cut down on the time they spend on tasks such as grocery shopping, doctor appointments, and travel.

“Early tests showed as much as 50% decreases in time spent running errands, which is great because users will find they have more time for the things that really matter to them,” said Clark. “A street legal version of the mobility scooter will probably not have as substantial an impact, but we’re still confident that when properly used, it will save time.”

Allegro Medical also carries a large line of non-jet powered Mobility Scooters in addition to a variety of other medical supplies at www.AllegroMedical.com.
