Those of us who have mobility issues will be very happy to learn that there have been many developments in the field of mobility scooters, with machines that are lighter, can travel further and offer a new level of comfort.
Range of Designs
The mobility scooter can be separated into 3 main categories:
- Transportable Scooters – These can be folded and will fit into the boot of an average car, and the ‘bootie scooter’ offers many advantages for the user. If you are thinking of buying a mobility scooter or disability walker in Trowbridge, the best idea is to visit the supplier and then you can actually try to dismantle various models, ensuring that you are able to fold the unit and store it in the car.
- Class 3 Mobility Scooter –This the larger and more comfortable model, which is idea to a trip to the local shops, or a ride around the park. Top speed is around 8mph and the average distance per charge is 35 miles, which is a considerable journey and more than enough for most people’s needs.
- Road Legal Mobility Scooters – These have indicators and great suspension that enables you to negotiate the roads. The units have both front and rear lights, good brakes and are ideal for the person who no longer drives but would still like to retain a degree of independence.
