What is a Mobility Scooter?
A mobility scooter is an electric mobility aid equivalent to a motorised wheelchair, but configured like a 3-wheeled or 4-wheeled scooter.
In Singapore and the rest of the world, mobility scooters are fast out-selling motorised wheelchairs, and are especially popular with the elderly who are still able to stand and walk, but not over long distances.
The key advantages of mobility scooters are
- Mobility scooters do not look like wheelchairs, which many senior citizens shun because wheelchairs make them feel helpless.
- Mobility scooters in general cost less than power wheelchairs.
- Mobility scooters are easier to control than electric wheelchairs, and therefore easier for elderly users with slower reflexes to learn and handle.
