Mobility Scooters

Motorscooter Muse is primarily focussed upon street-legal motorscooters. Unfortunately, motorscooters, mobility scooters and push scooters are not well distinguished by search engines and this page is intended to aid those seeking mobility scooters in finding what they need. We pride ourselves on providing well researched information -- often very difficult to find on the net among all the hype and program-generated sites all vying for attention. Please see our Mobility Scooter pages.

What is a mobility scooter?

A mobility scooter is a stable three or four-wheeled vehicle with seat over two rear wheels, a platform area for the feet (just as in a motorscooter), and handlebars in front with which the driver steers the one or two steering wheels. Normally electric powered by one or two batteries that require periodic charging, most modern mobility scooters have an extensive range and can provide freedom to roam and traverse a neighborhood of significant size.

Mobility Scooter Freedom

Much like the freedom and independence many adolescents find in their first motorized vehicle (See motorscooter freedom), the mobilitiy scooter can open up many practical and social opportunities for those who would otherwise be house or room-bound by a disability. With increasing awareness of the needs of the disabled, and the proliferation of accessibility ramps, in many cities, there are few places that a mobility scooter cannot comfortably reach without assistance.

Once primarily an aid to the disabled, the electric mobility scooter now often fills a lifestyle role for the healthy individual who prefers an alternative to walking. 12 hours at a county fair or theme park can been too much for anyone. With a mobility scooter, there is no need to suffer "Museum Syndrome" -- the back, hip, knee, ankle, or foot pain almost everyone associates with being on one's feet all day.

Some zoos, themeparks, and even supermarkets and department stores provide mobility scooters to the general public, but when no such options is available, a Travel Mobility Scooter is an excellent solution. The scooter can also serve as a pack animal to carry water, jackets, food, and gear of all sorts for the rest of the party.

Though the tendency to replace walking with scooter has been regarded as an unfortunate trend which contributes to obesity and undermines fitness, there are certainly many situations in which scooting can help prevent varicose veins or joint and muscle stress which can lead to discomfort and medical problems. At least with a scooter one can make a decision as to how much walking is enough.

Who needs a mobility scooter?

Mobility scooters are usually more affordable than motorized wheelchairs and do not have the same stigma of association with old age and infirmaty that wheelchairs do. They may be also be far more appropriate solutions for persons with certain very common disabilities. The individual who lacks the stamina or upper-body strength to operate a manual wheelchair yet is still able to sit upright and control the movement of a vehicle -- using any of a wide variety of ergonomic devices -- may well find that the a mobility scooter is an ideal solution. Their affordability also often qualifies them for insurance and healthcare financial assistance that would not cover a power wheelchair. Those with limited motor facility will probably find mounting and dismounting a scooter to be easier than manipulating the footrests on a wheelchair.
