Choosing the Best Mobility Scooter for You
Choosing the Best Mobility Scooter
Choosing the best mobility scooter for you is largely a matter of three factors: comfort, design, and maneuverability. In this blog from Eco E-Bikes, we’ll show you how to pick the most comfortable mobility scooter, how to choose the design that works best for you, and how to choose the type of maneuverability you need most in your daily life. The three models we’ll be looking at are the Ewheels EW-46, the Ewheels EW-14, and the Ewheels EW-10.
- Comfort: Comfort is an important factor when choosing the best mobility scooter, because you’ll be using it on a daily basis and there’s no sense in being uncomfortable when you don’t need to be. The first issue to consider is the seat. The most comfortable type is the captain’s seat, which you can find on models such as the Ewheels EW-46. However, any type of seat will be reasonably comfortable as long as you can sit in it with your knees at 90 degrees and your feet flat against the footrest, and as long as you can reach the tiller without needing to lean forward. The seat should also be well-padded and feel comfortable to sit on, like the seats on the Ewheels EW-10 and the Ewheels EW-14.
- Design: The next factor to consider when choosing the best mobility scooter is the design. Different mobility scooters have different design features. For example, the Ewheels EW-10 is a three-wheeled scooter with a sleek, athletic design, while the Ewheels EW-14 has four wheels for added stability. You should pick the design you feel most comfortable with.
- Maneuverability: When choosing the best mobility scooter, the final factor you’ll need to consider is maneuverability. Here, the question is whether you need to be able to maneuver around tight corners or whether you need to be able to drive over rough and bumpy terrain without any trouble. If rough terrain is your concern, you’ll want a mobility scooter with four 16” pneumatic tires, like the Ewheels EW-46. If the ability to turn around tight corners is your main concern, select a scooter with three wheels, like the Ewheels EW-10. If you need to consider both turning and terrain, a scooter with four smaller wheels like the Ewheels EW-14 might be the best choice for you.
