Understanding Mobility Scooter Sizes

Mobility is important and when your mobility is limited, it can slow you down. However, you don’t need to stop experiencing life the way you want to live it. If you are finding it harder and harder to get around and need occasional or part-time mobility assistance to perform your daily activities, a Mobility Scooter might be just the right solution for you.

Scooters are a great option if you are looking to get out and about, they’re perfect for going shopping or running other errands and staying involved in your local community.

Small Mobility Scooters

Small scooters, also known as boot scooters, are ideal for short distances on even surfaces. They are compact enough that when dismantled they can fit in a car boot. The maximum range of a small scooter is typically 6-10 miles depending on the model. The top speed is approx. 4mph.

Medium Mobility Scooters

Medium scooters usually have better suspension, larger wheels and larger batteries which mean that they can handle rougher terrain and have a longer range. As they are bigger than the small scooters, they don’t normally disassemble and are generally not suitable for transporting in a car boot. The maximum range of a medium scooter is between 13-30 miles. Medium Mobility Scooters have a top speed of between 4-8mph depending on the model.

Large Mobility Scooters

Large mobility scooters are bigger and have even better suspension and wheels than the medium scooter. They can handle all types of terrain and they usually come with indicators lights, headlamps and a comfortable Admirals seat for a smoother journey. These scooters are ideal if you have a lot of outdoor storage space to keep a large scooter. The maximum range for a large scooter is 25-32mph. The top speed is approx. 8mph.
