Disabled But Still On The Go : Scooter Buying Tips

Aug 17, 2007
Not being able to walk about for long periods does not mean you can't get out and see the world. Being injured, disabled, or when recovering from an accident, a scooter is going to give you the best mobility options, better than a wheel chair. A scooter is a small three or four-wheeled electric cart. You can fold it up and go, or you can dismantle the scooter and go anywhere you want.

Purchase A Scooter That Supports You Personal Body Needs
If you are big or small, a scooter can be found to fit your body. If you have trouble supporting yourself side to side, scooters are available with armrests and security features along the side. If you feel you need more support front to back, additionally there are supports front to back, with seat belts that will prevent you from falling forwards or feeling as if you are unable to hold yourself up.

In purchasing a scooter, look for handlebars that are sturdy, that are covered in rubber, and that fit your hand. If the handlebars are big, bulky and too large for your hands, it can mean you will feel uncomfortable while driving the scooter. If the handlebars are not covered in rubber, you could find you are not able to hold onto and control the scooter, as you would like. The runner on the handlebars will give you an added sense of control and a comfortable feeling overall.

Owning your own scooter gives you the choice of knowing and being familiar with the scooter you are riding. Riding a scooter you are not familiar can often times be a little awkward as you learn the controls. The retail scooters are big, bulky and will not cut corners very well. Using your own scooter is going to allow you the freedom to travel in the retail setting while still feeling comfortable. You make the personal seat adjustments to your scooter, adjust the handle bars and the controls to your personal liking, and the scooter settings will stay that way, because you are the only one who is using your scooter. Your personal scooter is just like your car, your personal transportation.

Purchasing a scooter is much life buying a car. You want to make sure the wheels are solid, safe, and sturdy. If you live in a rocky terrain, or if you will be traveling about a good bit, you want to ensure that your tires are not going to go flat. The tires that will never go flat, that are solid are a good choice in purchasing a scooter. You will never be prevented from leaving or traveling because of a flat tire. You will find the tread on your solid tires very similar to the tread on tires that can go flat. Opt for a tire that will enable you to hop on and drive away any time you like without worries!
