Leading nationwide mobility product specialist TGA will be unveiling the latest versions of its Breeze S and Breeze Midi mobility scooters alongside its renowned mobility test-drive track at Naidex 2020.

The TGA Breeze range is renowned for its reliable design and can be used in both rural and urban environments, ensuring peace of mind and independence for elderly and disabled owners.

Officially being unveiled to visitors at this year’s Naidex, the new Breeze S3 and S4, alongside the three- and four-wheel mid-sized Breeze Midi models, offer individuals contemporary, crisp aesthetics.

The 8mph Class 3 Breeze S3 and S4 have been remodelled and re-engineered to deliver an “unparalleled” driving experience and feature streamlined additions such as a lockable front compartment instead of a traditional basket.

Suspension, steering and controls have all been upgraded alongside a redesigned tiller which provides greater clarity and intuitive usage – plus the addition of a USB socket for battery charging. The Breeze S still retains its adaptability in terms of left and right-handed controls along with the foot pedal accelerator option – essential for users with strength inconsistencies.

Additionally, the supportive seat has been improved for additional postural support whilst still retaining its swivel capabilities for easy access.

The 30-mile range and 31-stone user weight limit allows the Breeze to cater for a vast range of needs and lifestyles with the addition of added safety through new energy-absorbing rubberised bumpers. Add the GT version with extra wider rear wheels, remodelled hard top canopy option and the Golf model for fairway friendly mobility, the new Breeze range presents a compelling choice for positive mental health and well-being.

Alongside the latest TGA Breeze S3 and S4 are the Breeze Midi 3 and 4. These mid-sized scooters mirror all the new assets of the larger models with the added advantage of greater manoeuvrability and easier storage for more restricted scenarios.

New for 2020, the Midi scooters are available with a contemporary canopy which provides all-weather protection. According to TGA, the Breeze Midi drives and feels the same as a larger scooter with the benefits of a more compact chassis.

Daniel Stone, TGA Managing Director, said: “We believe our new range of Breeze scooters are the best for independence with peace of mind – providing unique styling, comfort and performance. We welcome all visitors to Naidex to drive the new Breeze S and Breeze Midi scooters on our test track which promises to be rewarding for all.”

Alongside the new mobility scooters, TGA will also be offering its flagship national Mobility Test Track at Naidex 2020.

The largest of its kind in the UK, the TGA Mobility Test Track at Naidex provides a dual-purpose opportunity for visitors – to identify the right product for individual needs and to learn the latest safe driving techniques.

It provides an array of simulated everyday obstacles such as road crossings, kerbs and reversing zones with experts on hand to offer solutions for tackling typical scenarios. Individuals can test drive a wide range of mobility products in one, safe and controlled environment.

TGA advisors will also be able to provide one-to-one support in relation to product suitability for users and clinical recommendations for visiting healthcare professionals. OTs in particular will be able to learn how specific types of mobility scooters assist with certain medical conditions.

The mobility specialist will also be offering informative guides at the event, such as ‘Guide to safe mobility scooter driving’ and ‘A professional’s guide to mobility scooters’, for both users and healthcare professionals. Information regarding accessible travel with scooters will also be available to visitors.

This year’s Naidex takes place from the 17th-18th March at the Birmingham NEC. TGA can be visited on Stand N812 or at the test drive course.
