How to Choose a Power Chair or Mobility Scooter
Different models of power chairs and mobility scooters have different features.
Consider the following when choosing the best mobility device for your needs:
Power scooters are steered using handlebars and a tiller, while mobility
scooters are steered using joysticks. Mobility should not be hindered
by arthritis or other limitations, so make sure the device is easy for
the user to control.
Different models of power chairs and mobility scooters have different weight
capacities, ranging from 250 pounds to 450 pounds. It is important to
consider the weight of potential users when choosing the best solution
for your needs.
Power Chairs are best for use indoors through narrow hallways and doorways
as they are able to make tighter turns. Mobility Scooters are ideal for
use outdoors as their large wheels can easily handle uneven surfaces.
Both options can travel long distances between charges.
What happens after purchase? Once you receive your mobility scooter or
power chair, it’s important to have support for routine maintenance
and any questions that might arise. All new mobility scooters and power
chairs are backed by 101 Mobility’s One-Year Limited Service Warranty
in addition to the brand’s individual warranty so you can feel confident
with your new mobility device.
