TIPS TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT POWER SCOOTER
Power Scooters Users:
A power scooter is ideal for patients who can walk with limited assistance, but get tired or run out of breath on longer distances. To be a proud owner of a power scooter, you should have decent hand-eye coordination, enough upper body strength along with the endurance level to sit upright for extended periods of time.
The Range of the Power Scooter:
When searching for a power scooter, one concern many people have is how long the batteries will last on a single charge. The major factors determining the range of the power scooter are:
Whether you are going uphill or downhill
Age of the batteries
Most basic power scooters will run for approximately 10-12 miles if you are of average weight, ride on a level surface, and have new, fully charged batteries. On the other hand, power wheelchairs have bigger batteries and can go an average distance of 20-25 miles on a full charge.
Many power scooters and even some power wheelchairs come with a compact battery charger which you can take along with you and plug into a regular wall outlet. What’s more? You don’t have to spend a long time charging your power scooter or power wheelchair. All you need is a little charge to make sure you get home safely.
At Wishing U Well Medical, we carry 3- and 4-wheel power scooters from some of the top brands. 4-wheel power scooters have a wider wheelbase for added size, stability, and comfort. 3-wheel scooters are much nimble than 4-wheel scooters.
If you plan to use the power scooter outside your home, then a 4-wheeler scooter will offer you a comfortable ride. However, if you plan to use it indoors, the 3 wheeler is the best option for you.
As for power wheelchairs, you can spin on a dime and get around with the use of just one finger once you get the hang of the hand controller. That’s not all; the chair can be adjusted in so many ways, making it feel like a custom fit.
