Mobility Scooters: An Introduction – by www.1-800-Wheelchair.com Staff

No Comments 30 March 2010

Mobility scooters are designed for people who have some mobility but are challenged by slopes or distances. A wide variety of mobility scooters, in various price ranges, are available to fit your needs from leading manufacturers such as Invacare, Pride, Sunrise Medical and Drive Medical. Mobility scooters come in a number of styles which can accommodate a wide range of user needs. When selecting a mobility scooter one should consider where the scooter will primarily be used (indoor, outdoor or both), how often the scooter be transported in a car and any specific seating/accessory needs.

Most mobility scooters are defined by four features which separate them from power wheelchairs: Scooters are directed by a tiller at the front of the base that can steers the front wheel. This arm can be tilted and locked allowing a safe and comfortable ride for all users. Forward and reverse motion is controlled by two thumb levers. The seat of scooters is usually mounted on a stem, allowing many scooter seats to rotate from side to side. Finally, scooters have a base board instead of footrests. Scooters are steered using a tiller, you need sufficient arm strength to drive it and thumb mobility to use the controls.

Below is a brief outline of the three types of mobility scooters generally available. If you are not sure where to begin or if you need help picking the right scooter for you, please consult a mobility professional.

Foldable Mobility Scooters: Easily folded and ready for transport, these scooters are perfect for the active person who likes to travel. Additionally, foldable scooters, often called travel scooters, disassemble into light parts that are easy to lift into the trunk of most cars. Sealed batteries make these travel scooters airline safe; make sure to check with your carrier booking your flight.

3 Wheel Mobility Scooters: Looking for a full featured scooter with excellent maneuverability? You should consider a three wheel mobility scooters. Three wheeled scooters offer full-size comfort and are ideal for both indoor maneuverability and outdoor durability. Scooters in this category offer a wide array of features including: swivel seats, arms rests, storage baskets and more. And, with a maximum weight capacity of 300 to 400 lbs even larger framed users can be accommodated.

4 Wheel Mobility Scooters: A fourth wheel and a wider wheel base create the most stable platform within the mobility scooter category. Four wheel mobility scooters are designed for maximum stability and built specifically for outdoor use. Some larger models have knobby tires and high ground clearance; these scooters are a great choice for even rugged terrain. Some models offer a range of 25+ miles per charge and a top speed of 10 mph! The wide wheel base, which makes the 4 wheel mobility scooters great for outdoor use, often makes the turning radius wide as well. Indoor users with tight living spaces should keep this in mind.

Make sure to a mobility scooter is right for you. Consult with a doctor and mobility professional prior to purchase

Mobility Scooter Rental – What Insiders Know – by Scooter Review Team

No Comments 27 March 2010

If right now, you’re having trouble walking, and it’s only temporary then mobility scooter rental might be right for you. A mobility scooter is an electrical scooter that you sit on, with either a three-wheel or four-wheel platform. Most of them are battery powered and can go up to 10 miles per hour, lasting all day till they need to be recharged during the night. What’s more, many of them can be broken down into multiple lightweight parts and put in the trunk of your car so you can use them at the mall, grocery shopping, visiting the Post Office, etc.
Now buying a brand new mobility scooter or even a used one really doesn’t make sense if you’ll only temporarily need one. That’s where rentals come in. Mobility scooter rental can range from:
1 day rental (including delivery and pick up): $80
2 days rental (including delivery and pick up): $110
3 days rental (including delivery and pick up): $140
each additional day: $25
Depending upon the dealer that you’re renting from, you may be able to choose from many different styles, colors and features. Ideally, you’ll want mobility scooter rental to tailored for your particular situation. One of the best ways to do that is talk with your doctor before renting a mobility scooter. Find out what he or she recommends. That way you won’t likely get talked into renting a more expensive mobility scooter that you really don’t need.
Another benefit of mobility scooter rental is that you may be able to get the scooter delivered to where you’re staying. And often times, if you traveling, you can contact your destination to find out if they offer mobility scooter rental! That way, going site seeing will be a snap. If using a travel agent, have him or her set up the rental for you.

Mobility Scooters can be customised to fit the user’s exact needs. Depending on the model of scooter and the user’s requirements, additional products can help you get even more out of your mobility scooter.
Bigger batteries can be expensive, depending on the model of scooter, and the size of battery. However, if the user is regularly covering large distances, or feels restricted as they can’t travel as far as they wish, then a battery upgrade will be cost effective. If you regularly dismantle your scooter to go in the car, it is worthwhile remembering that bigger batteries will be heavier.
A crutch or walking stick holder will mean that you can take your crutches or walking stick with you wherever you go. An oxygen cylinder holder might also be available for your scooter. Rear view mirrors are available, and can make reversing into a garage or shed even easier, especially if you struggle to turn your head. These mirrors are also found on the road legal scooters, so that users can see the traffic behind them.
A mobility scooter bag or pouch can make carrying your shopping or other items easier. This can range from a small pouch that will fit on the scooters armrest, to a large bag that will fit on the back of seat and will hold a lot of shopping, or the necessary items for a day out.
Mobility canopies and capes are available to protect you and your scooter in adverse weather conditions. These range from a cape that covers the user and the scooter to a canopy that completely encloses the user and scooter from the elements. Mobility canopies are mainly designed for pavement and road-legal scooters whilst capes will fit most scooters.
Mobility ramps are available so that you can get your mobility scooter into a car, up outdoor steps or over a step in the home. These are available in aluminium and fibreglass and some even fold so that they can be kept in the car. Other mobility ramps are available for permanent outdoor use to aid getting in and out of buildings for example.
If you want to get more out of your mobility scooter, see if there’s an accessory to suit you and your scooter.
