Choosing a mobility scooter

Why choose a mobility scooter?


Keeping mobile is key to leading a full and independent lifestyle. A mobility scooter is the product of choice; if you can travel relatively independently, mount and dismount the scooter on your own and are capable of using a “bicycle handlebar” style steering column, or tiller.
