Do you like flying to exotic destinations, visiting the park or taking a relaxing cruise? Many people enjoy travel, outings and daily activities. You do not have to let a mobility difficulty repress you. SmartScoot™ folding mobility scooters are designed to be versatile and allow you to be as active as you want to be. A compact, lightweight, folding mobility scooter can be a crucial tool. Unlike a full-size power chair, a compact, foldable mobility scooter allows you to easily take it with you in the car, on planes or cruise ships. Lightweight scooters may be smaller than a full-size power chair, but they are heavy-duty and boast a full weight capacity. A heavy-duty, compact scooter is an excellent tool for getting around, especially for people who have difficulty walking extended distances.
There are always many factors to consider when choosing a folding mobility scooter. When you choose the right mobility scooter for your lifestyle, you will be amazed that you can go almost anywhere. What configuration do you prefer, three-wheeled or four-wheeled? What options and features do you want or need? What type of battery does it use and how long will it last? SmartScoot™ has written a short guide explaining the differences between 3 popular scooter brands.

Roz is a SmartScoot customer in Australia who has written us a testimonial. She has had great success using the SmartScoot to overcome the mobility difficulties of her MS. She even shared with us her experience traveling with her SmartScoot:
“I have just been to Canberra to see the Cartier exhibition at the National Gallery and the scoot was marvelous even in crowded rooms. It was such a pleasure to be able to do the whole exhibition with ease. The scoot has been to New Zealand and Tasmania and the airlines handle Scoot well. Absolutely no issues. The battery goes forever and I couldn’t be more delighted.”
