Power scooters are steered using handlebars and a tiller, while mobility scooters are steered using joysticks. Mobility should not be hindered by arthritis or other limitations, so make sure the device is easy for the user to control.
Different models of power chairs and mobility scooters have different weight capacities, ranging from 250 pounds to 450 pounds. It is important to consider the weight of potential users when choosing the best solution for your needs.
Power Chairs are best for use indoors through narrow hallways and doorways as they are able to make tighter turns. Mobility Scooters are ideal for use outdoors as their large wheels can easily handle uneven surfaces. Both options can travel long distances between charges.
What happens after purchase? Once you receive your mobility scooter or power chair, it’s important to have support for routine maintenance and any questions that might arise. All new mobility scooters and power chairs are backed by 101 Mobility’s One-Year Limited Service Warranty in addition to the brand’s individual warranty so you can feel confident with your new mobility device.
