Ultralife Healthcare offer a wide selection of three-wheeled and four-wheeled mobility scooters.
The following overview will answer basic questions and assist you in selecting a suitable Mobility Scooter: Powered scooters are an attractive alternative to wheelchairs, as they are often lighter, more compact and are more maneuverable than the powered wheelchair.
A number of other physical factors must be evaluated when determining whether a scooter is an appropriate mobility aid. The first consideration in selecting a scooter is to determine whether it will meet the needs of the potential user. Ideally the user should have some ability to walk, sit upright for extended periods, and have sufficient upper body and arm strength to steer and use the controls.
It is recommended that first-time purchasers consult with their physician, therapist, or other rehabilitation professional to determine whether a scooter is the best option, and what features are required.
A Mobility scooter is a typical choice for patients who have suffered milder forms of multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cardiac conditions, cerebral palsy, post-polio syndrome or stroke patients.
Guide to choosing a suitable mobility scooter:
Three – Wheeled Mobility Scooters
Three – Wheeled Mobility Scooters are a step up in size and features from the travel scooters, these scooters
offer full-sized comfort with three-wheeled maneuverability. They are the perfect choice if your mobility needs demand a scooter that you can be used both indoors and out.
Four-Wheeled Mobility Scooters
Four-Wheeled Mobility Scooters are predominantly used outdoors as the turning circle is wider so the full-size models would not be suitable for indoor usage. The larger models have a higher ground clearance and larger tyres which is a great choice for more rugged terrain. These scooters would be ideal for the folk who work and play outdoors.
