Mobility Scooter

What is a mobility scooter?

It is an electric vehicle similar to an electrically powered chair but designed similar to a motor scooter. The main benefit is that it can be driven outdoors. The handling and manoeuvring is far more sophisticated when used outdoors compared to that of a powered chair.

The main disadvantage is that you cannot spend long sitting on it, compared to a powered chair, due to its scooter design.

Who can benefit from a mobility scooter?
  • People who have some remaining mobility, 
  • People who are mobile indoors but struggle with outdoor mobility, 
  • People with respiratory disorders such as COPD, 
  • People with cardiac disorder, 
  • People who use it only for mobility purposes, 
  • People with pain,
  • People with arthritis, 
  • People with a neurological disorder.
How do I get exercise when I use a mobility scooter?

When an individual begins to use a mobility scooter, they often lose the capability of walking long distances, and their endurance can be reduced. It is recommended that individuals build their exercises into their daily routine. For example, on visiting the supermarket, the individual can park the scooter and walk unaided inside the supermarket.

It is not recommended to walk long distances from the outset. Gradually increase exercise tolerance by slowly increasing the number of steps taken each day.
