Scooters for the Disabled

Scooters that are specially made for disabled individuals are often referred to as "Mobility Scooters" or "Medical Scooters". The scooters come in various forms and each one addresses the needs of the physically disabled individuals. Mobility scooters are powered by electric motors that can be controlled using tillers or handlebars.

Compared to electric wheelchairs, mobility scooters were not as popular because they were bulky and difficult to control. However latest developments have led to lighter and more manoeuvrable scooters.

Although some mobility scooters are powered by gas, electric powered scooters are more popular. This is because many major countries do not allow the use of gas powered models as an effort to minimise pollution, especially indoors. However, no matter which type of scooter an individual chooses to use, both have the capability to cover the same distance.

Another reason why electrical scooters are popular is because they make use of rechargeable batteries that can hold out up to 10 hours. This would translate to about 25 miles when travelling at a maximum speed of 8 miles per hour.

Mobility scooters come in 3 or 4 wheeled models. Although three wheeled scooters are smaller and therefore lighter and easier to manoeuvre, the four wheeled scooters are popular because they can carry heavier loads. Furthermore, the bulkiness of the scooter is not a problem because the newer models can now be taken apart for easy storage. This is especially important for wheelchair users who often travel.

Mobility scooters can be bought nowadays from various scooter manufacturers who offer them in a wide variety of models. They can also be customised to suit the preferences and the needs of each individual. Depending on the taste and requirements of the user, mobility scooters range widely in price.
