What Is A Mobility Scooter?
A mobility scooter is a power operated vehicle that has a seat over a 3 to 4 wheels. The scooter is driven via the front tiller and the user turns it to the direction they would like to turn. Mobility scooters are battery powered and include a charger to continuously recharge the scooter. The distance mobility scooters can travel is based off of distance. The average mobility scooter can go a distance of around 10 miles in normal driving conditions. Mobility Scooters come with various sizes and features that make it easy to cater to the needs of every different user.
3 or 4 Wheel Mobility Scooter?
3 Wheel Mobility Scooter
3 Wheel Mobility Scooters are the most popular amongst mobility scooters. 3 Wheel scooters are very easy to drive due to there only being one wheel in front. They are also incredibally easy to navigate through tight areas because of the sharp turning radius. We reccomend 3 Wheel Scooter for users who are mostly inside the home.
4 Wheel Mobility Scooter
4 Wheel Mobility Scooters are great mobility scooters for users seeking more stability. 4 Wheel scooters are very stable and reduce the chances of tipping due to the additional wheel. 4 Wheel Scooters are great for outdoor use. These scooters are great for rough sidewalks or streets that have several bumps. These scooters can easily go over rough sidewalks safetly. 4 Wheel scooters are considerably heavier then 3 wheel scooters, so travelling can be more difficult. 4 Wheel Scooters also have a larger turning radius due to the additional wheel. Because of this it can be extremely difficult to navigate in tighter areas.
