What type of mobility device is right for me?
Mobility Scooters are equipped with a handlebar/tiller feature that is used to drive the device. A tiller can be adjusted to each user but if you have limited arm strength or it would be uncomfortable to have your arms outstretched operating the scooter.

A Power Chair is operated with a joystick that is comfortably located at the end of the chair's arm. You operate a power chair by small movements of the joystick, side-to-side or front to back. If you have limited fine motor skills operating a power wheelchair may be challenging.
What is the difference between a travel and non-travel unit?
A travel scooter can be quickly disassembled into sections and is designed to be hand-loaded into a vehicle. That said, the weight of each section and one’s ability to handle and lift that weight, should be considered.

Full Size or non-travel units have many other benefits such as higher ground clearances, faster speeds and longer battery ranges just to name a few. However, a vehicle lift or ramp is required to transport these units.

Travel power wheelchairs are designed for people who want to traverse long distances but don't want to bother others for help. They are portable and super easy to use, making them the perfect choice for those who crave exploring the world on their own terms. Such power wheelchairs are usually operated by a joystick that is located on the armrest. These vehicles come with a variety of features that can make life easier for those who use them.

The Benefits of Using a Travel Power Wheelchair

Travel power wheelchairs typically have wider seats than regular wheelchairs. They also have larger wheels that can handle different types of terrain. Such a vehicle comes with a spacious padded seat and a backrest that can recline. Travel power wheelchairs also have suspension systems to make the ride smoother. This is highly advantageous for those who have joint pain or back problems.

Another advantage of using a folding electric wheelchair is that they are easier to maneuver than regular wheelchairs. This is because they are lighter and have more powerful motors. Travel power wheelchairs can also be used indoors, making them ideal for those who live in small apartments or houses.

The Different Types of Travel Power Wheelchairs

Travel power wheelchairs feature front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive models are more maneuverable but may not be suitable for all terrain. Rear-wheel drive models, on the other hand, provide more stability on rough terrain but can be difficult to turn. Lightweight electric wheelchairs for traveling also come in different sizes. From compact models that can be easily transported in a car to larger chairs that are more comfortable for extended use.
