As we get older, our physical capabilities start to diminish. There are times in which the presence of arthritis or simple old age can prohibit the ability to accomplish everyday tasks. Mobility is something we cannot take for granted — particularly when medical issues make it difficult to walk down the street.
Fortunately, a number of companies have engineered state-of-the-art mobility scooters for those who need help getting around (geared mostly towards the elderly). This piece will look at some spectacular options that are moderately priced — as well as those considered to be ‘premium’.
There are power scooters that run for upwards of $1,000. However, many manufacturing companies offer effective products for considerably less money.
The Drive Medical Spitfire Pro SE 4 Wheel can be found on Amazon for roughly $699.00 (standard batteries). Ones with extended batteries will set the consumer back $799.00. A large durable plastic basket sits in the front of the scooter. There are five color panels from which to choose from. Each can be changed out whenever desired. The standard battery range is nine miles — though the upgraded version is 15 miles.
Another fantastic product is the Travel Pro Premium 3-Wheel Mobility Scooter by Pride. On Amazon, potential customers can purchase this tremendous product for only $599.00 (with free shipping). The scooter prides itself on extreme maneuverability — especially in tight areas. The scooter can be easily dissembled into five pieces in order to transport it practically anywhere.
On the other side of the coin, there are a number of luxury scooters on the market in 2020.
The BUZZAROUND EX Extreme 4-Wheel Heavy Duty Long Range Travel Scooter is going for approximately $1,645 on Amazon (free shipping). Compared to the previous model, this one has a longer battery/distance life (18-mile drive range).
Duly, this machine is said to have very good leg room, and ample space when entering and exiting the scooter. It can be broken down quite easily, and thus stored in the vast majority of car trunks. Duly, it comes equipped with an adjustable LED headlight.
Another fun option is the EV Rider Transport Folding Travel Electric Mobility Scooter. As it says in the title of the machine, the scooter has an automatic folding/unfolding feature. This is a major plus for those who like to travel both domestically and abroad. Priced at roughly $1,499, the scooter has a one-year extended warranty, a removable seat, digital display, front/rear view lights, and armrests. Simply put, this scooter is among the cream of the crop for the field.
