What are Mobility Scooters
Mobility scooters are battery-powered, motorized devices designed to assist individuals with limited mobility in moving around independently, both indoors and outdoors. They are often used by people who have difficulty walking or standing for extended periods due to disabilities, age-related issues, or medical conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson's disease.
Mobility scooters typically consist of a comfortable seat mounted on a platform with a set of wheels, handlebars or a tiller for steering, and a battery-powered electric motor. They can be maneuvered easily, and the speed is controlled using a throttle or a twist-grip on the handlebars.
Mobility Scooter Key Features
Some key features of mobility scooters include:
- Different sizes and styles: Mobility scooters come in various sizes and designs, ranging from compact, lightweight models suitable for indoor use or traveling, to larger, more robust models designed for outdoor use or rough terrain.
- Adjustable speed: Most mobility scooters have adjustable speed settings, allowing users to choose a comfortable and safe pace for their specific needs and environments.
- Battery life: Mobility scooters are powered by rechargeable batteries, with different models offering varying levels of battery life and range. Users should consider their daily travel needs when selecting a scooter with appropriate battery capacity.
- Weight capacity: Mobility scooters are designed to accommodate users of various sizes and weights, with different models offering different weight capacities. It is essential to select a scooter that can safely support the user's weight.
- Customizable features: Many mobility scooters offer adjustable or customizable features, such as seat height, armrests, or steering tiller position, to enhance user comfort and fit.
- Portability: Some mobility scooters are designed to be easily disassembled or folded for storage or transportation, making them more convenient for users who need to take their scooter on trips or store it in a small space.
Mobility scooters provide increased independence and freedom for individuals with limited mobility, allowing them to engage in daily activities, socialize, and maintain their quality of life. When selecting a mobility scooter, it's important to consider factors such as the user's specific needs, daily travel requirements, and the scooter's compatibility with their living environment.

Sturdier construction means that your mobility scooter will help you navigate the world around you with more reliability.

Many portable options can also be easily fit into the trunk of a car making mobility for elderly individuals convenient and easy.
Which is better 3- or 4-wheel mobility scooter?
Whether a 3 or 4-wheel mobility scooter is best for a user depends on their individual needs. 3-wheel mobility scooters are ideal for indoors and outdoors use. A single wheel at the front of the scooter can create a tight turning radius. This makes navigating tight corners and spaces significantly easier. A 4-wheel mobility scooter is best suited for individuals requiring help with their balance. 4 wheels provide a wider footprint for better stability – especially when it comes to navigating bumpy or more challenging terrains.
What is the range on a mobility scooter?
Mobility scooters vary in range widely. Travel mobility scooters have the most conservative range – between 10-15 miles (15-25 km) on a single charge. Larger mobility scooters, including mid-size and heavy-duty models, can have a range of up to 30 miles (50 km). This makes them a great option for users looking to take longer trips.
How long do mobility scooter batteries last?
If properly cared for, most mobility scooter batteries will last an average of 2 to 3 years. In order to help your mobility scooter last as long as possible, we recommend that when not in use, the battery be charged overnight every 7-10 days. When in use, it is best to store the batteries (if detachable from the scooter) or the scooter as a whole in a dry and cool place. Extreme temperatures will shorten the lifespan of your mobility scooter.
Which is better folding electric wheelchair or mobility scooter?
Folding electric wheelchairs and folding mobility scooters are both convenient, compact mobility devices that can greatly benefit the lives of their users. The main difference between one and the other is the structure of each. A folding electric wheelchair is perfect for indoors and outdoors spaces as most of these chairs have extremely tight turning radiuses. A tight turning radius makes your scooter extra nimble.Folding power wheelchairs are controlled with a sensitive, highly precise joystick which can be assigned to the right or left hand of the user. A folding mobility scooter on the other hand, is controlled with bi-lateral paddles that control when and how much the scooter accelerates. With a larger turning radius, these compact scooters are still great for indoors/outdoors use, but are often preferred for touring outdoors spaces. They are also more suitable for individuals who lack the motility to properly operate a power wheelchair.

Can I ride my mobility scooter in the rain?
Yes, you can ride your mobility scooter in the rain. However, because many of the electric component of your scooter may be exposed to the elements, we recommend that you wipe your scooter clean when you arrive at your destination. Keeping your scooter dry will prevent moisture from affecting the scooter’s battery and electrical systems.
Can you leave mobility scooters outside?
You can leave your mobility scooter outside as long as you do not live in a town or city with extreme weather. If you live in cold weather, it is best to keep your mobility scooter under a roof, preferably in a temperature-controlled space. If the scooter is exposed to consistently cold weather, the battery may suffer. If the scooter must be stored outside in cold weather, you may opt for a travel mobility scooter. These scooters have lightweight removable batteries that can be stored inside while the scooter stays outside. No matter what the exterior temperature may be, it is still important to keep the scooter dry. A shed or a large tarp may be enough to keep your scooter safe and functional if stored outdoors.
Should I leave my mobility scooter on charge all the time?
You may leave your mobility scooter plugged in when not in use because most of these scooters are equipped with smart chargers. This means that when the scooter’s battery is fully charged, the charger will stop working until the battery is depleted, again. When the scooter is not being used for a period of time, it is not necessary to charge it all the time. However, our experts do recommend charging your mobility scooter every 7-10 days to keep their batteries healthy.
How often do mobility scooter batteries need replacing?
A well-cared for mobility scooter will last between 2-3 years without the need to replace it. Some tips for keeping well maintained scooter batteries is to keep them dry, away from extreme cold and to charge them once every 7-10 days when not in constant use.

Other provinces have different eligibility requirements.
