A powered mobility device can be your ticket to freedom. If you’re tired of having to depend on others for help, or feel constrained by not being able to get around as well as you used to, you may want to consider a powered mobility device.
There are essentially two options for you if you chose to go this route: Power Scooters and Power Wheelchairs. This is not only a preference, but is also dependant upon what you will use your powered mobility device for.
If you want to use your powered mobility device around the house, a power wheelchair may be your best bet. Tight turns, narrow hallways, and navigating furniture are all more easily managed using a smaller, more compact chair. Along with this, a scooter may be harder to use for cooking, cleaning, using the shower or toilet because you cannot get quite as close since they are bigger.
On the other hand, scooters are much better for traveling and use in outdoor or day to day activities. If you primarily want to use your powered mobility device for touring the neighborhood, going to stores or being outside, you probably want a scooter. They are usually faster, larger, more durable, and have bigger wheels which are better for varied terrain.
