Why does DEUS have an S-shaped telescopic stem and not a straight telescopic stem? What are the advantages in terms of ergonomics?

Invented in 1980 by Derek Ingram, the father of Nigel Ingram our distributor in the United Kingdom (Regton Ltd UK), the S-shaped stem has replaced straight stems and other earlier ‘exotic’ stems.
All that needed to be done was to make it telescopic, 30 years later…

The advantages of a telescopic stem (ease of storage, fast and simple deployment) are obvious. Until now, only straight stems were available in telescopic form. But we can now offer you the very first S-shaped telescopic stem.

The advantage of an S-shaped stem is that its shape naturally keeps the coil on the end of the stem away from the user’s feet. This natural forward offset of the stem spares the user additional effort: when using a straight stem with an integral handle the user has to continually lift the stem slightly when sweeping the ground in order to keep the coil away from his/her feet.

If you consider how long detecting trips typically last and how many times you sweep the detector, these few centimetres make an enormous difference from an ergonomics perspective!

The handle and the rubber that covers this S-shaped telescopic stem have been carefully shaped to offer a firmer grip than the traditional foam handle. The angle of the handle corresponds to the hand’s natural position, whereas the length of the stem can be adjusted by millimetre increments and the armrest has three different positions.
