Mobility electric scooters are usually the ideal solution for anyone in the Dallas Fort Worth area who has difficulty walking but still wants to maintain his/her independence, and manage their daily tasks. It’s important you choose a mobility electric scooter which best fits your lifestyle, plans and abilities. Considerations such as, when and where the mobility electric scooter will be utilized, battery life, weight capacity, scooter speed, maneuverability, leg room and ease of transport, can make the difference in just how much you will enjoy your electric scooter. You might consider purchasing more than 1 scooter to cover the indoor mobility, portability and shopping plus all terrain mobility, comfort and long distances.
All electric scooters aren’t the same. For instance, there are two types of scooters that we offer at Mobility Healthcare manufactured by Pride Mobility; 3 wheeled scooters and 4 wheeled scooters, and each has its’ own advantages. Before you purchase your electric scooter, you need to first decide which type will best suit your needs. The 3 wheeled scooter makes turns in tight spaces as compared to the 4 wheeled scooter, however, the 4 wheeled scooter normally tends to be much more stable and sure footed because of its’ wider wheel base.
3 Wheeled Scooters
3 wheeled scooters are basically configured with 2 drive wheels at the back and one wheel at the front used for steering. 3 wheeled scooters provide excellent maneuverability, thanks to the scooter’s lower turning radius which makes them great for indoor use where maneuvering around various obstacles is necessary. While the scooters include anti tip wheels to ensure safety, they aren’t quite as stable as the 4 wheeled scooters. They’re best used on the smooth, level surfaces, and not on the rougher outdoor terrains like gravel or grass. Compared to the 4 wheel models, 3 wheel scooters provide users with more legroom, especially to those who are tall or those who suffer from leg or knee ailments. In addition, 3 wheel scooters are much lighter and cost much less as compared to 4 wheel scooters.
Advantages of 3 wheeled scooters
-A tight turning radius which enables better indoor maneuverability
-Lighter weight than the 4 wheeled scooters
-Lower cost than the 4 wheeled scooters
4 Wheeled scooters
4 wheeled scooters provide improved stability as compared to the 3 wheeled scooters, which makes them a much better option for those who plan on regularly driving on the uneven outdoor terrains. 4 wheeled scooters are basically configured like automobiles, with 2 drive wheels on the rear and 2 wheels on the front for steering. Compared to 3 wheeled scooters, 4 wheel models offer excellent stability on all kinds of terrains; outdoor and indoor, by resisting tipping over, even at the top speed, and also safely handling curbs and hills, 4 wheeled scooters stability is great for those who have poor balance.
Because the 4 wheel configuration increases the scooter’s turning radius, the scooter gives up some maneuverability, which makes them much less desirable for indoor use. However, the smaller 4 wheeled scooters still do provide a turning radius which allows users to easily perform most of their indoor functions. 4 wheeled scooters are also a little heavier and they cost a bit more than the 3 wheel units.
