Whether you are recovering from a medical procedure or just need help getting around due to a medical condition, buying a lightweight travel mobility scooter may be for you. BUT, not all mobility scooters are the same. You need to make sure that your new purchase has at least these 5 key features.
► First, the scooter must be lightweight. But equally important the scooter cannot be ‘flimsy’.
While some scooter manufacturers brag about being the lightest, they use materials like aluminum to achieve this.
HandyScoot™, the Lightweight Travel Mobility Scooter is a premium mobility scooter and is constructed out of heavy-duty stainless steel. Yet it weighs only 42 lbs with a heaviest part of 29 lbs. Most individuals, no matter their age or sex, can pick up the scooter and move it around with little exertion.
► Second, make sure your scooter is able to handle the weight of the rider.
Many scooters have a 200- 250 lb. weight capacity. Buying a scooter rated this low is very risky and can lead to quick failure and possible injury. Again, HandyScoot™ has an industry leading weight capacity of 350 lbs.
► Next, consider the speed and range of the scooter.
Both features are essential. Buying a scooter that has a low range (measured in miles between battery charges) may not serve your needs well. Equally important is overall speed.
Whether you are traveling across a large parking lot or navigating through an amusement park with your family, having your battery last the duration of your trip is key. So, what is the right balance between the two?
HandyScoot™ believes that a travel mobility scooter should have a range up to 15 miles and have adjustable speed ranges. The HandyScoot™ offers a top speed of 9 mph. If you are in a situation where that speed is not needed, HandyScoot™ has two lower speed modes that let you adjust to your environment: 0-3 mph and 0-6 mph.
► How easy is it to collapse and transport the scooter?
HandyScoot™ Lightweight Travel Mobility Scooter folds up in less than a minute into 3 easy to handle parts. In addition, the scooter can fit into almost any vehicle. Watch this to see for yourself.
► Finally, extra features are key!!
Does the scooter complement your lifestyle? Does it fit through the doorways of your house or on a cruise ship? How high do you have to lift your leg to clear the scooter center bar? Does the scooter have enough storage areas to carry your purchases and personal items? Is it easy to lift and handle?
If you take a hard look at the features offered by HandyScoot™ Lightweight Travel Mobility Scooter, we believe you will not find a better value in the marketplace. CHECK IT OUT before buying your lightweight travel mobility scooter.
