Mobility Scooter Types, Features and Maintenance
Mobility scooters (or “scooters”) are designed for people who lack the strength or ability to walk or operate a manual wheelchair. They are battery powered and may have three or four wheels. Unlike power chairs, mobility scooters are steered by tillers.

Types of Mobility Scooters
There are three main types of mobility scooters: travel/portable, three-wheel and four-wheel.
Travel/portable—Travel scooters can fold or be disassembled, usually into three or four parts that will fit into the trunk of a car or as airplane cargo. These scooters tend to be lighter than full-sized three- or four-wheel scooters.
Three-wheel mobility scooters have a tight turning radius, making them easier to use indoors.
4-wheel mobility scooters are more stable and the risk of their tipping is relatively low. They maneuver well over rough terrain and hills.
