Is a Travel Scooter Right for You?


There are many names for a mobility scooter. Some simply refer to them as electric scooters. They are also frequently called adult scooters or adult electric scooters. No matter what they are called, however, almost everyone agrees that they are great. This is because they allow people who would otherwise be greatly restricted in their movements to freely move around without assistance.

One of the most popular types of mobility scooter is the travel scooter. Travel scooters are designed for, yep you guessed it traveling. They can be completely broken down into several easy to manage pieces in only a few minute. The pieces can be easily handled by most people, with the heaviest piece usually around 30 pounds. When it comes time to put it back together, it only takes a matter of minutes. These devices can be placed in the trunk of a car and do not require that you purchase a scooter carrier for your vehicle.

Travel scooters have traditionally been 3-wheele, but there are some 4-wheeled models available. A 3-wheeled scooter has excellent maneuverability and usually weighs less than a 4-wheeled scooter. This makes easier to handle and ideal for areas of close quarters. A 4-wheeled mobility scooter will not be as maneuverable, but because the weight is more evenly distributed, it tends to be much more stable. 4-wheeled mobility scooters are also better suited for outdoor use and rough terrain. The weight capacity of a 4-wheeled mobility scooter is often greater than a 3-wheeled mobility scooter as well.

If you need to be able to easily transport you mobility scooter then a travel scooter may be for you. They can be taken on most airplanes and trains, but it is a good idea to check with the company first to find out their policy. If you have difficulty walking then consider purchasing a travel scooter today.
