AvaCare Medical has some of the best compact scooters from some of the top brands in the industry to help you get to your next destination with ease! Read more...

What Sets Small Mobility Scooters Apart from Others

Just like other power mobility products, motor scooters come in many different shapes and sizes. The standard scooter is normally used for transportation just the same, but they can be a bit bulky. Our compact mobility scooters are designed with weight capacities between 285 lbs. and 350 lbs. This means that small handicap scooters may not represent the best choice for larger users. If a person needs a higher weight capacity than 350 lbs., they may need to consider getting a bariatric mobility scooter instead. These small scooters are still perfectly designed for the disabled since they offer the same functionality. Other key differences and features that set compact mobility travel scooters apart from many other options are:

Lightweight Design

Most average mobility scooters weigh anywhere between 200 lbs. and 350 lbs. by themselves. They may have some sort of portable options on them, but some do not. Standard scooters that most people see at retail stores weigh about this much, and they are not meant for transport. A small scooter for the elderly weighs often only a fraction of this, and because of their ability to be portable, each part is relatively light. Many of our small portable scooters have a base weight beginning at 60 lbs., but no more than 100 lbs. when fully assembled.

Foldable or Easy to Assemble/Disassemble

As mentioned above, a very big difference from larger or standard scooters is that small lightweight mobility scooters are able to be folded in order to give users a “stow and go” option. Otherwise, they can be easily assembled and disassembled in minutes without tools. This makes them perfect for those who travel frequently to public places, or just enjoy traveling in general. If a user doesn’t wish to have to disassemble their scooter, then a small folding scooter remains the best option, and one of the more popular options at that.

Quick Connect Battery Packs

Many of our products have the ability to connect to a power source quickly and easily. One of the convenient features of the Drive Medical mobility scooters is that the Quick Connect batteries are easy especially for users who suffer from a general lack of physical strength.

Very Durable Frames

Don’t let the little guys fool you! This phrase is very popular in a lot of different levels and it applies to small foldable scooters as well. Despite their light weight construction, small folding mobility scooters actually are made of high-quality medical grade materials such as hospital-grade plastic or sturdy aluminum and steel. They often have wheels that won’t go flat, providing exceptional traction for users.

Smaller Parts

Of course, with their lightweight frames and options, the parts of a compact folding scooter are going to be generally smaller. Small power scooters must have these parts to aid in transport, but as mentioned above, every single part has to pass a variety of durability tests by the manufacturer to ensure safety. These smaller parts may also make small electric mobility scooters easier to replace and perform maintenance on.

Wallet-Friendly

One great thing that many people love about small mobility scooters is that they are specifically designed with the minimal expense required. This means that they are much more friendly on your wallet than most larger or standard motor scooters. All of our small mobility scooters for sale are priced lower to help people with their transportation needs when finances are a concern.

Removable Durable Attachments

Many of our small electric scooters are perfect for seniors, as they come with easy to attach & detach accessories, such as a travel basket for storing small items. This can also help in terms of allowing users to go grocery shopping, among other activities. When it comes to small scooters for seniors, many of them don’t need all of the extra amenities that younger people may want. Therefore, having small lightweight mobility scooter that give them the mobility and ability to transport items that they need is the most important goal for them.

Some of our compact folding mobility scooters may not have attachments, but they allow plenty of room to add attachments to them.

How Fast Can Small Mobility Scooters Travel?

Since mobility scooters are designed more for travel and mobility for those with limited mobility (not complete mobility loss), some models tend to go faster than most electric wheelchairs. Some small electric handicap scooters are meant to be used outdoors just as they are able to be used indoors. Most of our small mobility scooters are optimized for indoor use. That means they don’t need to be operated at super-high speeds like others. If you are needing the best in small indoor mobility scooters, then our selection is excellent. with max speeds being anywhere from 4mph – 6mph, our scooters are able to transport users efficiently. This range is considered standard for many small portable mobility scooters.

How Many Wheels Do I Need?

Many small mobility chair options come in different wheel counts. Of course, there aren’t very many wheelchairs that have fewer than 4 wheels, but a small medical scooter can be purchased in 3-wheel models and 4-wheel models for certain applications.

3-Wheel Models

3-wheel scooters offer optimum mobility. These options are primarily used for navigating over smooth surfaces and floors, making them perfect for indoor use. Also, should you need a scooter that can turn a bit sharper, a small 3-wheel scooter is your best bet. This also allows you more leg room if you’re looking for small, foldable mobility scooters for a taller person.

4-Wheel Models

4-wheel scooters are the best small mobility scooters in terms of their weight bearing capability. These models feature optimal weight distribution and balance, but they don’t have necessarily the tighter turn radius that a 3-wheel scooter does. They prove excellent, though, for use when one needs to transport oneself both indoors and outdoors. Offering a wider base, they often have higher weight limits than some 3-wheel models.
