Mobility scooters have a maximum weight capacity. A lightweight electric scooter can carry up to 113kg, heavy duty four wheel mobility scooters can carry in excess of 180kg. Check the manufacturers specifications before purchasing a new mobility scooter.


Small scooters are easy to transport. Smaller medical mobility scooters may not suit taller people. Those who intend using their scooter indoors should choose a 4 wheeled mobility scooter to provide greater stability.

Distance needs
