Mobility Scooters -- whom they can help and which one is right for you
Types of Mobility Scooters
- Travel scooters are those which can be readily disassembled to fit in the trunk of a car. They are typically not as robust as larger scooters, may lack features such as arm-rests, and may have more limited speed and range. They may have either three or four wheels and usually range in price from $550 to $1550 depending on features and capacity.
- Three-wheel Scooters are for both indor and outdoor use and have greater capacity than travel scooters.
- Four-wheel Scooters Are intended for outdoor use as their turning radii are too large for most indor spaces. It is expected that one can negotiate supermarkets and malls, however. They generally range from $1300 to $2200.
- Heavy duty scooters are larger, have greater load limits and often greater speed and range than other scooters.
Heavily laden -- within weight limitations, a great deal can be carried in a number of ways.
