The Best Types of Mobility Scooters for Seniors

If you have come to the realization that it’s time to purchase a mobility scooter, look no further than the scooters that Yellow Scooters has to offer. Finding the right scooter to match your needs can be challenging, especially if this is a first-time purchase. You don’t want to make the mistake of buying the wrong size, speed, or weighted scooter as it will not help you regain your independence. Let’s examine the best mobility scooters for seniors.

What is Your Physical Ability?

Before determining which scooter you should buy, it’s important to look at your physical ability. Will you be able to disassemble the scooter and lift it into your car’s trunk on your own? Will you be able to reassemble the scooter after lifting it out of the trunk? If you do not have the physical ability to do either of these things, then you need to look at the lightest scooters on the market. 

These lightweight scooters will not cost you much and they won’t have long battery life, but if you live alone, they will be very easy to handle. The best scooter in this category would be the CruiseMate Folding 3 Wheel Scooter, which weighs no more than 55 pounds and can hold up to 250 pounds. It will only travel at a speed of four miles per hour and when fully charged, will travel up to six miles.
