Mobility Scooters are produced in a wide range of formats and categories. This variety is good news for customers because they can choose a scooter that is most suitable to their specific requirements. They usually fall into several categories. Those categories generally include three diverse types of mobility scooters: regular mobility scooters, off-road scooters or travel scooters. Different models can be manufactured in 3 wheel or 4 wheel versions.
Type 1. Regular Mobility Scooters.
Most people are familiar with this kind of scooters because we all can often see them at your local shopping centers and malls. Such scooters can be produced only for indoor use or be engineered for both outdoor and indoor use. Normally their maximum speed is from 6 to 8 mph. You can easely find both 3 wheel and 4 wheel mobility scooters.
Type 2. Off-road Scooters.
Off-road models are designed to be driven off the beaten track. They usually have a fortified structured base that is equipped with stronger wheels. Such scooters are more stable. They are irreplaceable for country trips. People truly enjoy such mobility scooters especially if their house is where terrain frequently and suddenly changes.
Type 3. Travel Scooters.
These scooters are produced to be a lightweight, letting it to be readily moved in and of a vehicle. Travel scooters are generally taken on planes for their small size and lightweight. Also most of these scooters can be demounted into parts or folded, that can make it convenient for travel. With such lighter weight and smaller size, they usually are equipped with a smaller and less powerful motor, that means lower speed of a scooter. Still, most of travel mobility scooters allow you to accelerate to 6 mph. This speed is enough for most people although other categories of scooters can allow faster speeds.
Each of these types of mobility scooters will differ in prices. Lighter scooters will be the cheapest, and heavier ones will cost more. In this way, travel scooters will be the cheapest when the off-road models will be the most pricy.
Nevertheless, by choosing the category that will be most suitable to your special requirements, you will not have difficulties in picking out the high-quality mobility scooter.
