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.

3-Wheel vs 4-Wheel Portable Mobility Scooter

The number of wheels on a power scooter does not affect its portability. However, it does affect the turning radius and stability. A three-wheel scooter has a smaller turning radius but is less stable than a four-wheel scooter. A four-wheel scooter like Victory LX Sport 4 Wheel Scooter is more stable but has a larger turning radius. In the case of indoor use, three-wheel scooters are more maneuverable in tight spaces. If you traverse off-road trails a lot, a four-wheel scooter is a better choice.
