What Type Of Mobility Scooter Is Right For You?

Mobility Scooters have, over the years, evolved into highly efficient and reliable machines that help millions of Americans each year retain their mobility. There are many different types available on the market today and many different styles. Finding the right one can seem overwhelming, but like most things, it is pretty simple if you know a little bit about them.

One of the first things you should do is decide what you are going to use the small mobility scooter for. There are several questions you should ask yourself like: Is it going to be only used around the home and town? Or do you plan on taking it on vacation with you?

If you are planning on taking your scooter on trips and vacations then you will probably want to get a travel scooter. Travel scooters are very easy to assemble and disassemble. They can be easily placed in your trunk or a plane without the need for vehicle lifts or special packaging. 

They usually do not have headlights or taillights and have fewer added comfort features than traditional mobility scooters. Since travel scooters are very light and small they are not recommended for people over 5' 11" or 300 pounds. Travel scooters function better on pavement, so if you are planning on using them outdoors over the unpaved ground then you may want to consider a heavier scooter.
