Is a mobility scooter for me? What to keep in mind before renting an e-scooter?
- Does the intended user have the capacity to follow instructions for maneuvering the power operated vehicle?
- Does the intended user have the dexterity, strength and physical ability to sit upright, steer the tiller and manage the controls of the mobility scooter for extended periods of time?
- Could severe mobility constraints, minimum strength and/or a qualifying range of other disabilities interfere with safe operation of a power scooter?
More about mobility scooters from Wikipedia.
“A mobility scooter has a seat over three, four or now five wheels, a flat area or foot plates for the feet, and handlebars or a delta-style steering arrangement in front to turn one, two or three steerable wheels. The seat may swivel to allow access when the front is blocked by the handlebars. Mobility scooters are usually battery powered. A battery or two is stored on board the scooter and is charged via an onboard or separate battery charger unit from standard electric power. Gasoline-powered scooters may also be available in some countries, though they are rapidly being replaced by electric models. User-powered propelled by a lever used in a push-pull rowing motion to provide exerciseand mobility at the same time.
The tiller, with forward/reverse directions and speed controls, is the steering column centrally located at the front of the scooter. The tiller may contain other features as well, for example, a speed limiter, lighting controls (for nighttime use) and turn signals. A battery use indicator is also often included. Forward/reverse direction can be controlled by thumb paddles, finger controls, or a switch.”
