Mobility Scooters can be customised to fit the user’s needs. Depending on the model of scooter and the user’s requirements, additional products can help you get even more out of your mobility scooter. Scoota Mart stock a range of mobility scooter accessories, including bigger batteries, mobility canopies and walking stick holders.
Bigger batteries can be expensive, depending on the model of scooter, and the size of battery. However, if you regularly covering large distances, or feel restricted as you can’t travel as far as you wish, then a battery upgrade will be cost effective. If you regularly dismantle your scooter to go in the car, it is worthwhile remembering that bigger batteries will be heavier.
If you regularly travel off road, or on long journeys, different tyres may be available for your mobility scooter. Pneumatic tyres provide a comfortable ride and are usually fitted to the larger scooters as standard. It is possible to puncture-proof tyres so that you can enjoy benefits of pneumatic tyres and won’t suffer from a puncture.
Some disabled scooters have the option of a different sort of tiller to control your scooter. A Delta tiller allows the same hand to control both forward and reverse, and works by the hand either pulling or pushing the lever to control the scooter. This can be beneficial if one hand tires easily, or if one hand is stronger than the other.
A crutch or walking stick holder will mean that you can take your crutches or walking stick with you wherever you go. An oxygen cylinder holder might also be available for your scooter. Rear view mirrors are available, and can make reversing into a garage or shed even easier, especially if you struggle to turn your head. These mirrors are also found on the road legal scooters, so that users can see the traffic behind them.
