Early mobility Scooters were small, front wheel drive models designed primarily for indoor use, with little power and limited range. Newer models of mobility scooters offer greater range and the ability to traverse outdoor terrain. Most mobility scooters have a range of options, which include, three-wheeled mobility scooters, four-wheeled mobility scooters and fold up mobility scooters.
The three-wheeled mobility scooters are the most maneuverable. They are ideal for riders who must operate in tight spaces. Their high turning radius allows them to make turns most four-wheeled mobility scooters can’t.
The four-wheeled Mobility scooters are designed for stability and less for maneuverability. Not as good for tighter quarters but great for outdoor use.
The fold-up mobility scooter is designed to help individuals take their mobility scooters with them on trips. Other non-folding models may need the use of a lift mechanism to travel.
