The assessment process

There is a great deal of importance of getting an assessment before buying a mobility scooter, to determine whether a mobility scooter is appropriate and which model(s) best suit your needs. We carry out detailed assessment either in the comfort of your home or at our huge assessment centre . This assessment covers your needs and wishes, your capabilities and relevant environmental and lifestyle considerations. We also take care over the delivery of the mobility scooters we sell. Where needed we unpack and assemble the product on delivery and ensure the user has a chance to familiarise themselves with it and determine whether it will be suitable. Along with the offer of full lifetime, servicing and repairs, we are only a phone call away.

More on Scooters

 

Because they are not a primary source of mobility, they have design elements, such as swiveling seats, to make it easier to get on and off during the day.

Also, unlike a power wheelchair, the scooter is controlled by a tiller with handlebars in front of the user rather than a controller on the arm so you can’t pull them up to a table or desk.


Scooters have three or four wheels, typically with two larger wheels in the rear and one or two in the front. Three-wheeled scooters tend to be lighter in weight and have a smaller turning radius, making them easier to maneuver, particularly indoors. Four-wheeled scooters are generally heavier and somewhat more stable outdoors over rougher terrain.

They can have rear-wheel or front-wheel drive. • Speed and range varies from walking speed of about three miles per hour to 10 mph, and 10 to 30 miles of range on a battery charge.

Speed and power up hills also depends on the torque of the motor, with lower torque providing more speed and higher torque more power. • When and where you will use your scooter can help you choose between a smaller travel scooter and a standard/midsize or heavy-duty/larger scooter.

Travel scooters typically are lightweight, designed to be disassembled quickly into 4 or 5 smaller, lighter components that can be stored in a trunk of a car and reassembled at your destination. Travel scooters also have user weight limits and offer less speed and distance than standard or heavy duty ones. Standard or heavy-duty scooters have more features, and generally require a scooter lift attachment or specialized accessible van with ramp to transport. Larger scooters are often too large to maneuver inside an average-sized house or apartment

 

Seating - How many hours a day do you expect to use your wheels?

Does your medical condition affect your ability to sit up, balance, or change position?

Your comfort, posture, pressure points, and/or stability while using your wheels will depend on how you are seated in the wheelchair or scooter.

• The seat and back, or seating systems are often sold separately, which allows you to select the features you need. However, check to be sure that the seating system is compatible with your wheeled mobility vehicle. • Cushions may be part of the seating system or separate. Cushions may assist in support and correct positioning, as well as prevent pressure sores by reducing or shifting pressure off the buttocks—a key danger point if you have trouble changing positions. Cushion types include air, gel, foam, and honeycomb.

• Power wheelchairs, because of their modular construction, often have customized chair-style seating systems. Scooters usually have a chair-style seat with a back and armrests, although some lightweight scooters may have seats without a back or armrests. • It’s important to get all the correct measurements, particularly the width and depth of the seat, and the support in back of the chair.

Seating is one area where you should talk to us about,  to determine the best solution for your health, safety, and comfort.
