What’s the difference
between a battery powered scooter and a powered wheelchair? While both types
have small wheels in front, the powered wheelchair’s front wheels are
typically non-steerable casters. The scooter’s front wheels, on the other
hand, are fully controllable. Typical scooters have only a single wheel in
the front, but 2 wheels in front are not uncommon and can actually be
preferable for added stability. The cost of the two types differs in that
scooter’s typically cost around 20% less than powered wheelchairs, but
maintenance for both types is about equal.
What features should you
consider when choosing an electric scooter? 3 or 4 wheels; four wheeled
scooters tend to be more stable than 3 wheeled models, but a three wheeled
scooter is generally more maneuverable with a smaller turning radius. Having
a rear-wheel drive scooter provides an advantage in uneven or slick terrain
since the rider’s weight is directly over the rear drive wheels. Many
scooters have the ability to freewheel the drive wheels, allowing it to be
pushed manually; however, bear in mind that scooters can be heavy and hard
to push with ease.
The type of
seat for your
scooter can make the difference on how comfortable and functional your
travel is. Seats provide for some shock absorption and are generally padded.
Most scooter seats feature an adjustable height, allowing you to set the
correct height and prevent pressure on your thighs. The correct height can
be especially important for those who have poor circulation in their legs.
Usually seat adjustments are made via a push/pull paddle lever or via
electric power, depending on the model. A swiveling seat makes transferring
on and off the scooter much easier for seniors or those with a disability; a
user should be able to manage the swivel adjustment while seated on the
scooter. Another important feature a scooter seat should have is a forward
and backward travel adjustment, which allows the rider to reach all of the
controls needed to safely control the scooter as well as allowing for
different leg lengths. Lastly, some scooters will have seats that are
detachable for folding or transporting the scooter.
