There are many electric scooters for adults, and many reasons for using one. You may be dealing with a temporary mobility difficulty due to an injury or need a mobility scooter to keep up with the active lifestyle you enjoy with your family and friends. A travel scooter is an excellent tool for getting around, especially for people who have difficulty walking extended distances. When you are coping with a mobility challenge there is no need to feel debilitated. As you are searching for a mobility solution, electric scooters for adults are a compelling option because power scooters provide the freedom to shop, travel and conduct business as usual despite mobility difficulties.
Electric scooters for adults come in various sizes and configurations. A power scooter that is designed for anytime/anywhere use must be both versatile and dependable. The scooter battery should carry enough charge for extended use. A three wheeled scooter design must take stability into account, with adjustable rear wheel width giving the user the versatility needed. Front-wheel drive VS rear-wheel drive is another important design factor to consider. To quote a power scooter user on the difference this makes:
“On a slope, the front wheel is pulling you the direction you are going rather than the rear wheel pushing and the front wheel trying to steer with no power… I find the stability to be better than my previous scooter. My previous scooter was rear wheel drive where this one is front wheel drive.”
Electric scooters for adults must be designed to easily adjust for various body sizes and types as well as disassemble for storage or transport. Seat height, backrest, steering column, wheel width and other options should be configurable for maximum comfort and safety. Removal of the scooter battery, seat or other parts should be easy and quick – whether in an airport terminal or at the trunk of your car.
Another important consideration when choosing a mobility scooter is weight. When you choose the right mobility scooter for your lifestyle, you will be amazed by how much more accessible your day-to-day activities become. If you’re looking for a mobility scooter that you can travel with or bring on-the-go, you’re probably looking for a lightweight mobility scooter that you can fold, dissemble, and pack up without much hassle.
The SmartScoot™ is one of the most lightweight mobility scooters on the market, weighing in at 39.5 lbs. It breaks into three pieces, with the largest piece being only 27 lbs.
