If you have challenges getting around in public or even at home there are options to help you maintain an active and fulfilled life. Mobility scooters are a great way to still get your shopping done, get to work or spend time outdoors. Scooters effectively allow people to keep their independence despite certain medical conditions.

Get Your Mobility Scooter at SpinLife Today! When choosing a scooter consider the weight capacity, the dimensions and durability. Also, can you easily transport the scooter during travel? A number of scooters exist across a long list of brands to meet your very specific needs but keep your personal preferences and needs in mind before choosing one.

You'll find that shopping online allows you to decide between hundreds of choices without leaving your home. However, not all stores selling mobility scooters offer the same policies and customer service. Before choosing which store to purchase your mobility scooter from consider the following:

  • Selection. Will you be able to choose from a long list of varying scooters with different features that meets your needs and budget?
  • Price. How much does the company charge for their selection of mobility scooters?
  • Policies. If you decide against your purchase can you return? Does a warranty come with the product and will your scooter be serviced at home?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Mobility Scooter stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the best mobility scooter to keep your life active and on the go!

Benefits of Mobility Scooters

From the first wheelbarrow-type devices to the lightweight, folding metal wheelchairs invented in the 1930s, wheelchairs had one thing in common: they all required some sort of manual propulsion, either by the person seated in the chair or by a helper. Even the most technologically advance manual wheelchairs require a certain amount of upper-body strength and digital dexterity.

More recently, technical developments in battery and propulsion systems have made possible motorized wheelchairs and scooters. Now even people with limited upper-body strength or manual dexterity are able to take themselves from point A to point B with perhaps only limited assistance. Motorized wheelchairs and mobility scooters provide a level of independence to people who are unable to propel themselves in a manual wheelchair or who might require a wheelchair to travel over terrain that would be challenging in a manual wheelchair. And using a mobility scooter or powered chair instead of a cane or walker might actually help prevent further injury from falls.

Whether the reason is age, illness, or injury, with a motorized wheelchair or scooter you don't need someone to push you around. These devices now allow you to:

  • Participate more easily in family get-togethers
  • Go shopping at the grocery store or the mall
  • Attend a theater performance or a sporting event
  • Travel faster and more safely than walking with a cane or using a walker

In addition, compact and maneuverable powered wheelchairs can help you get around your own home, with minimal structural adaptation. With a tight turning radius and no handlebars, a powered wheelchair allows you to pull right up to a table or counter with ease.

A mobility scooter is most helpful for a person with conditions such as coronary or lung problems, arthritis, weight issues, and so on who can still stand and walk a few steps, sit upright without support, and steer with the handlebar controls. When mounting or dismounting from a mobility scooter, being able to turn the seat right or left makes it easier to step on or off than having to move the foot rests on a conventional wheelchair.

Mobility scooters do not look like wheelchairs; they can look way cooler. You can find models that are styled after spiffy Italian scooters in bright colors, or black and chrome motorcycle-styled choppers. Current battery technology allows for a range of 15-20 miles before requiring a recharge. And in general, mobility scooters are cheaper than powered wheelchairs. You can also get scooters that are easy to transport, folding small enough to fit in the trunk of a car.
