What are mobility scooters?
Mobility scooters are way of assisting people who suffer from various mobility issues. They can be valuable to anyone who has reduced mobility in both their upper or lower body.
Mobility scooters, sometimes known as power-operated scooters or electric scooters, are small motorised vehicles. They are generally designed with three or four wheels with a seat which swivels around to allow access to and from the scooter. The scooters are battery powered.
Mobility scooters have an advantage over wheelchairs in that they don't require excessive use of your arms and shoulders to operate them. As they are generally controlled by the acceleration and brake handles on the front bars of the scooter, they are very comfortable to use.
Another major advantage of mobility scooters is their stylishness. Available in a range of different designs and colours, they are a lot more modern in their appearance than other mobility assistance items.
Why might I need a portable mobility scooter?
One of the disadvantages some mobile scooters have is that they can be heavy. This makes portability and storability quite difficult. You may not be able to take your mobility scooter on family days out by storing it in the back of a car, for example, or create more room around the house by storing it in a cupboard or closet. However, Millercare has a solution to this. We have a range of portable mobility scooters with mechanisms that allow them to easily be disassembled and reassembled.
What do I need to know about using a scooter in the United Kingdom?
There are several things that people looking to buy a portable mobility scooter should know before getting behind the wheel. Some legal requirements exist that may need to be understood regarding road use, speed restrictions and tax discs.
For instance, a Class II scooter - most of our range of portable mobility scooters are this type - must be limited to 4 mph when they are in use. Furthermore, they can only be used on footpaths and cannot be driven on roads. Only Class III scooters are able to be used on a road.
Portable scooters should not require a tax disc because they won't be allowed on the road. This is different from Class III scoothers which may need to be registered for one at the Driver And Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
