The difference between mobility scooters & powerchairs?

Mobility scooters and powerchairs are often grouped together to differentiate them from traditional self-propelled, or pushed manual wheelchairs. There are however some fundamental differences between a mobility scooter and a powerchair.

Mobility scooters have three or four wheels and are steered using a bicycle style handlebar which requires two hands. They are designed to travel up to 35 miles. Depending on the model and type of mobility scooter. It may disassemble into easy-to-manage components to be easily transported in a car, or stored at home.

Powerchairs

Powerchairs usually look more like traditional wheelchairs. Some models even look just like a traditional wheelchair with batteries and a motor attached to each wheel. Powerchairs are driven using one hand by a joystick controller on the arm of the powerchair. Powerchair users tend to spend more time in their chairs than scooter users spend on their scooters. Powerchairs are more adaptable than mobility scooters and some models have specialist seats and controllers fitted to suit the requirements of the user. Powerchairs are also more likely to be used inside although some powerchairs are equally capable indoors and outdoors. Mobility scooters are more likely to be used outdoors, although some of the smaller ones can be used indoors.

What sort of mobility scooter is right for me?

Travel Mobility Scooters

The nature of your disability will go some way to determining what sort of mobility scooter will be the right one for you. If you’re looking for a mobility scooter to completely replace your car, then a small boot scooter is unlikely to fit the bill. By the same token, if you require an electric scooter that dismantles to fit into a car boot, then a large road-legal electric scooter will not be suitable.

Mid-Range/Pavement Mobility Scooters

Medium-sized mobility scooters are much more substantial than small / boot mobility scooters. Medium-sized mobility scooters often offer more car-like features such as a padded, height and reach adjustable seat, lights and indicators, as well as a longer battery life between charges. They tend to have bigger wheels, with a maximum speed of up to 6 mph. These scooters can sometimes be dismantled to fit in a car, but this process is usually more complicated than with a small / boot scooter. The components are likely to be heavier, and so can be more difficult to put into a car boot.

8 MPH Mobility Scooters & Road

Large-sized mobility scooters are much more substantial, and often twice the size of a boot scooter. These disabled scooters have a top speed of up to 8 mph, with a range of up to 35 miles. You can legally use on and off the road. As they are road legal, large scooters come with a full lighting kit and indicators. They offer large wheels, pneumatic tyres and often have suspension to provide a comfortable ride. For a lot of people, these large mobility scooters will replace their car and will be their main method of transport. As a result of this, the larger electric scooters will be more substantial and rugged than a small / boot scooter.

How often you use the electric scooter, where you go on it, where it will be stored, how it needs to be charged (whether the battery pack can be charged separately from the electric scooter or not) will all need to be considered to help you to determine what sort of mobility scooter you need.

How do I choose a mobility scooter?

After you have decided what type of mobility scooter is suitable for your needs, the next thing to do is to try some out for yourself. You will probably need to try several scooters to find one that feels comfortable and meets all of your requirements. If a scooter doesn’t feel right immediately, adjust the seat or the tiller, and see if that helps. If that doesn’t help, then it probably isn’t the right scooter for you.

You may be tempted by the cheapest mobility scooter on sale, but it is important to remember that just because something is the cheapest, it doesn’t necessarily means it is the best for your individual needs. Whilst trying different scooters make sure you can drive them around the showroom, or even outside, to see what they are like over bumps, and whether they feel comfortable and stable. Legroom is another important consideration, especially for the taller person. As a rule of thumb, three wheel scooters provide more legroom than four wheel scooters; however, four wheel scooters tend to be more stable.

Ask for free advice.

Remember to ask any questions that you want answering. Common questions include the scooter’s speed; range; whether it dismantles for transportation; the weight of the components once the scooter is dismantled; the actual dimensions of the scooter if space is tight, or if the forward/reverse controls can be changed from right hand to left hand. It may be worthwhile disassembling the scooter to see how easy it is and to make sure you can put it in the car, where that is required.

Some models are available with different seats, or different batteries. If you’ve found the ideal scooter, but there’s something that doesn’t quite meet your requirements, there may be a solution. Remember to ask the salesperson.

What does my mobility scooter come with?

Mobility Scooters usually consist of a base unit, the drive chain, the seat, and tiller, as well as the batteries and wheels. Other components are attached to the base unit chassis. This chassis provides the area where the feet go in between the tiller and the batteries or drive chain. The drive chain is the part that powers the scooter. The tiller is the handlebar that steers the mobility scooter.

Front wheel drive mobility scooters have the drive train just over the front wheel. Front wheel drive scooters also to be small / boot scooters rather than larger pavement or road-legal scooters. Rear wheel drive mobility scooters use a chain, belt or trans-axle mechanism to drive the rear wheels. Rear wheel drive scooters “push” the rider whereas front wheel drive scooters “pull” the rider. This offers more power and efficiency and so provides a better ride, and allows the scooter to go up steeper hills.

Scooters often have easy adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.

Mobility scooter seats often have folding armrests, and swivel to aid getting on and off the scooter. The seat is often padded to provide more comfort. Some models have a larger Captain or Admiral seat, which is more like a car seat, and may offer more adjustment than a standard seat. The larger, more comfortable seats are normally fitted to larger scooters as the scooter has a larger range, so the distance travelled will be almost double that of a small scooter. Almost all seats are adjustable for height, some adjust for reach, and some even recline like a car seat.

The tiller controls the direction, and speed of the mobility scooter, and is like a bicycle handle bar. The scooter moves by either pulling or pushing the lever on the tiller (called a wigwag). Some models of scooter have a Delta tiller meaning that the user can either pull with the fingers (like a bicycle brake) to make the scooter move, or push with the thumb. This tiller is ideal for people with limited hand mobility or who have one hand much better than the other. This means they can use the same hand for both moving forward and reversing.

Mobility Scooter Accessories

Depending on the model of scooter and the user’s requirements, additional products can help you get even more out of your mobility scooter. ScootaMart stock a range of mobility scooter accessories, including bigger batteries, mobility canopies and walking stick holders.

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.

What About Tyres?

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 normally 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 on the road legal scooters, so that users can see the traffic behind them.

Bags, Capes

A mobility scooter bag or pouch can make carrying your shopping or other items easier. This can range from a small pouch that will fit on the scooters armrest which is ideal for carrying car keys and a mobile phone, to a large bag that will fit on the back of seat and will hold a lot of shopping.

Mobility canopies and capes are available to protect you and your scooter in adverse weather conditions. These range from a cape that covers the user and the scooter to a canopy that completely encloses the user and scooter from the elements. Mobility canopies protect larger pavement and road-legal scooters whilst capes will fit most scooters and users.

How to charge and maintain your mobility scooter

First of all, it is important to read the manual that came with the mobility scooter. Depending on the manual, you may need to recharge your scooter each time you use it. Or you may only need to recharge it when it when the battery gauge tells you that battery charge is low.

If you have a boot scooter you may be able to take the battery pack off the scooter and charge the batteries independently. This means that you can leave the scooter in the car, and charge the batteries indoors, such as at home, in a hotel room or caravan. Other mobility scooters need to have the batteries left on them to charge them. As a rough guide, depending on use, terrain, and user weight, batteries can last 1-2 years, depending on usage.
