The Different Types of Mobility Scooters
Are you looking to buy a mobility scooter? It can be very overwhelming choosing the right one for you. Do you want 3 or 4 wheels? Road or pavement mobility scooter? Do you want to take it abroad?
Let’s take a look at the different types of mobility scooters on the market:
Pavement Mobility Scooters
Pavement mobility scooters are very similar to travel mobility scooters meaning they are typically of a smaller size with 4 wheels, except they can take a higher load capacity and are slightly bigger due to them being one size. They may also have more features such as lights and rear view mirrors attached to them.
Road Mobility Scooters
Road mobility scooters are able to travel on roads which means they can travel at a faster speed as they are not limited to the maximum speed of 4 mph which applies to mobility scooters travelling on the pavements. They also have more features such as suspension and advanced dash displays to improve the experience you have while travelling.
Travel Mobility Scooter
Travel mobility scooters are exactly what they say on the tin, they’re mobility scooters that are specially designed to travel with. This may be in the form of your car, on a plane, train, bus or boat! Typically you will see these designs fold down to a smaller compact style that is easy to manoeuvre when travelling with.
At Betty&Bertie, we carry a range of Travel Folding Mobility scooter options that are suitable for travelling with as they fold down to a compact and easy to use scooter when in use or when travelling too. To travel on most airlines, the lithium battery in the Travel mobility scooter must be less than 300Wh capacity which both of our folding scooters comply with as like most mobility scooters. If you have a Lupin then you can purchase an air-safe battery on the side!
Two of our models are easy to use with their simple operational technology - by pressing a button or pulling a handle, one of our folding mobility scooters will be just right for you!
