Folding Mobility Scooters

Folding Mobility Scooters are an excellent choice for your mobility needs as they are extremely simple to use, easily collapsable and you can take them wherever you go. Folding mobility scooters are a variant of portable scooters, the primary difference being that it is not necessary to remove parts or dismantle the scooter into sections when travelling. It’s a simple case of folding the scooter into a smaller and more compact design and storing it.

Lightweight folding mobility scooters are ideal for use indoors, and the turning radius on them is often very tight. Folding scooters are therefore great for storing in car bonnets with some newer models folding with such ease, the mechanism is comparable to folding an umbrella!

If you’re looking to use a scooter for travelling over shorter distances, or will only use your scooter indoors, folding mobility scooters are perfect. However, if you’re a larger individual you may have some problems regarding stability as the light-weight and compact scooters are less sturdy than larger non-folding versions. Pavement and road use are also inadvisable, as larger versions would suit better. Not only that, but if your folding scooter cannot travel at up to 8mph it isn’t road legal anyway!

Some companies today offer their folding mobility scooters with their own travel case. This means all you have to do is fold it away and pop it into the case. Additionally some use the wheels on the scooter itself and a cleverly built handle so that once you’re off the scooter, all you have to do is wheel it around with you.

Folding mobility scooters also present another benefit in the sense that they are usually less costly than their larger counterparts. This means you can still have all the benefits a mobility scooter would give you, without burrowing too deep into your wallet.
