Mobility Scooters

Purchasing a scooter can change the life of a person who is struggling with daily mobility issues. Whether they have trouble getting around because of their advanced age or because of an injury or illness, people with mobility loss can feel trapped by their inability to move. Having the ability to get outside and stay active through the use of products such as 3-wheel mobility scooters can help to improve a personís mental and physical health along with their overall quality of life.

Deciding between 3-wheel travel scooters and 4-wheel mobility scooters can be tough, especially if you havenít purchased a mobility scooter before. Sherman Oaks Medicalís trained staff helps to take the guesswork out of purchasing a product. We can you to find the right mobility scooter no matter what your needs. Here are a few things that you should be looking for to help determine what the right scooter is for you:

Will You Need to Disassemble It?

If you are planning on traveling frequently in a car or even airplane, youíll likely want a scooter that can be easily disassemble for storage in tight spaces. Products such as Go-Go mobility scooters are designed to break down into a few lightweight pieces that can be easily disassembled and reassembled with minimal effort.

Will You Primarily Be Using Your Scooter Indoors or Outdoors?

Knowing how - and where - you will be using your mobility scooter is critical to determining which one is right for you. For example, travel scooters likely wonít have the range, stability or power you need to take your scooter outdoors. This can also influence how many wheels you need on your scooter. In general, 4-wheel mobility scooters will have a more even weight distribution, which makes them a better choice for rough terrain.

Do You Need a Scooter That Can Support Additional Weight?

For people who weigh more than 350 pounds, heavy duty mobility scooters can give them the security and comfort they need. However, this doesnít mean that larger individuals canít experience the freedom and portability of travel scooters. For example, 4-wheel travel scooters have a wide base and often provide more stability and greater height adjustability than 3-wheel scooters.
