Mobility scooters are electrically powered scooters that are designed for people who struggle with walking long distances. They have an adjustable seat and can be easily driven in both indoor and outdoor environments using hand controls.
If you find walking long distances difficult, using a mobility scooter (sometimes called a ‘disability scooter’) is a great way to maintain your independence. Modern designs are also becoming increasingly user-friendly with better stability and battery life, helping you get out into the community and keep doing the things you love to do.
What to consider when shopping for mobility scooters
Before looking for mobility scooters in Australia, it’s worth considering if you have the ability to operate one. Chat to a health professional (e.g. an occupational therapist) so they can run you through what you need to be able to do to safely drive a mobility scooter in public. This includes tasks such as:
getting on and off the scooter without help
operating the hand controls
turning your head to look for oncoming traffic and pedestrians
reacting to your surroundings
maintaining your balance while sitting on the scooter when driving over uneven paths
being able to maintain your concentration for an entire trip
seeing clearly what is around you
Another decision to make is what kind of disability scooter to purchase. There is a wide range of mobility scooters for sale, for example: an off road scooter, folding mobility scooter, portable mobility scooters, 3 wheel mobility scooter, 4 wheel scooter, lightweight mobility scooter, travel mobility scooter and heavy duty mobility scooters.
Here are some of the common options to choose from and what they typically feature.
Small mobility scooter
As the name suggests, small scooters are more compact than larger models and have a tight turning circle, so they are agile enough for manoeuvring around busy indoor spaces. Many models also feature a front basket, making them ideal for doing the shopping at your local supermarket.
Small mobility scooters are also convenient to transport, due to their light weight and small size. They can be dismantled or folded and are great option if you like to go away on trips, as they can fit into the boot of a car or be taken on airplanes as checked baggage.
A lightweight mobility scooter may not suit your needs if you’re looking for a vehicle that will take you outdoors for an extended period of time. A smaller battery means they have less range per charge, and they are less capable than larger models of driving on rough surfaces or up steep hills.
Medium mobility scooters
Medium scooters combine the convenience of a small scooter with the extra power needed to climb small hills and drive outdoors. They are a great ‘general purpose’ option if you need to get around your local area, do the shopping and visit friends nearby. Many models also have features such as puncture-proof tyres, a front headlight for better visibility, a basket for shopping and padded seats.
Medium scooters also tend to have basic suspension, giving you a comfortable ride even if you are travelling outdoors.
Heavy duty mobility scooters
These are large scooters which can cover a long distance – up to 50km for some models. They also feature extra comfortable padded seats, headrests, pneumatic rubber tires and suspension. This allows you to travel on uneven surfaces – for example, lawns, rough paths, bumpy roads – and still remain fairly comfortable.
Some models also feature additional storage and accessories, which may be ideal if you plan on travelling longer distances on your scooter.
