With a 10 mile range and a 280lb load capacity, the Easy Light is a clear leader in portable scooters.
Are you an elderly senior looking for the perfect way to get out and go shopping? Look no further than the Shoprider Sunrunner Light Scooter. This 4 wheeled model features swivel and sliding seats, flat-free tires, and a new articulating front wheel design. This scooter has plenty of power and styling to reliably travel anywhere.
What’s the difference between a battery powered scooter and a powered wheelchair? While both types have small wheels in front, the powered wheelchair’s front wheels are typically non-steerable casters. The scooter’s front wheels, on the other hand, are fully controllable. Typical scooters have only a single wheel in the front, but 2 wheels in front are not uncommon and can actually be preferable for added stability. The cost of the two types differs in that scooter’s typically cost around 20% less than powered wheelchairs, but maintenance for both types is about equal.
What features should you consider when choosing an electric scooter? 3 or 4 wheels; four wheeled scooters tend to be more stable than 3 wheeled models, but a three wheeled scooter is generally more maneuverable with a smaller turning radius. Having a rear-wheel drive scooter provides an advantage in uneven or slick terrain since the rider’s weight is directly over the rear drive wheels. Many scooters have the ability to freewheel the drive wheels, allowing it to be pushed manually; however, bear in mind that scooters can be heavy and hard to push with ease.
The type of seat for your scooter can make the difference on how comfortable and functional your travel is. Seats provide for some shock absorption and are generally padded. Most scooter seats feature an adjustable height, allowing you to set the correct height and prevent pressure on your thighs. The correct height can be especially important for those who have poor circulation in their legs. Usually seat adjustments are made via a push/pull paddle lever or via electric power, depending on the model. A swiveling seat makes transferring on and off the scooter much easier for seniors or those with a disability; a user should be able to manage the swivel adjustment while seated on the scooter. Another important feature a scooter seat should have is a forward and backward travel adjustment, which allows the rider to reach all of the controls needed to safely control the scooter as well as allowing for different leg lengths. Lastly, some scooters will have seats that are detachable for folding or transporting the scooter.
