How do I know which mobility scooter is right for me?

Mobility scooters, sometimes called electric scooters or power scooters, range from small and portable to large and heavy duty. It's important to know where you'll be riding your scooter most often and whether it will be driven indoors or out. We've broken it down for you to make your shopping as easy and enjoyable as possible.

A note about 3 wheel scooters vs. 4 wheel scootersmore wheels = more stability. 

The general rule of thumb is that 3 wheel scooters have tighter turning radiuses and maneuver better in narrow spaces and sharp turns, whereas 4 wheel scooters provide more stability and evenly distributed weight. For foldable scooters and travel scooters, both can generally be used indoors and out, although 4 wheel scooters provide more stability than 3 wheel models when used outdoors. If you use a walking aid, such as a cane or a walker, 4 wheel scooters are recommended due to superior stability.

Read on to find out which type of mobility scooter is right for you!
