Mobility Scooters are designed to provide you with mobility where and when you need it. Scooters can make basic tasks, like running errands, traveling, or just performing tasks around the house both easier and safer. With a power chair scooter, you don’t have to rely on your own strength and balance, and can save your energy while still being able to travel quickly and easily. This all amounts to increased independence and an improved quality of life.
Scooters come in a variety of designs. Some are designed specifically for indoor use, and offer tight turning radiuses for increased agility. Others are designed for outdoor use, sporting large wheels and clearances and higher speeds. Scooters are typically powered by rechargeable batteries. Whatever your needs, you can be sure that there’s a scooter available to suit you and your lifestyle.
Don’t be worried about the challenge of learning to operate a power scooter – most scooters feature simple controls that are easy to use. Some mobility scooters include safety turnoffs to keep you from accelerating too quickly, and others feature limited top speeds to help keep you safe. Additional safety features include lights, back-up alarms, and directional signals.

Make Sure a Scooter Is a Good Fit
Make sure that any mobility scooter you’re considering is a good fit for the person who will be using it. Scooters come in different sizes, and most offer height-adjustable seats. You will want to be sure that a scooter can accommodate your height for a comfortable ride.
Don’t forget to also pay attention to weight limits to make sure that a particular scooter is the right choice for you.
Decide Between Three- and Four-Wheel Design
One of the major differences that you’ll notice in scooters is that some are designed with three wheels, while others have four. Four-wheel scooters have increased stability over three-wheel models, making them preferable if you will be frequently traveling outdoors. Three-wheel scooters usually have a tighter turning radius, making them preferable if you’ll be dealing with tight quarters indoors.
Before you buy, think carefully about your intended use for the handicap mobility scooter. If you will be running errands and traveling outdoors, then you will want a scooter which is stable, powerful, and which has a long drive range. If you need a scooter mainly for indoor use, then its turning radius will be more important to you than its overall power. It’s important to weigh what factors are important to you so that you can make an informed decision about the scooter that you buy.
