Looking for a mobility scooter to make venturing outside more enjoyable? You've come to the right place, here at Spring Chicken we have a vast range of mobility scooters that will suit all your needs and preferences. From lightweight folding mobility scooters, that are perfect for hassle-free travelling to all-terrain mobility scooters that have powerful motors and batteries to make any terrain a walk in the park. Let's look at some of the popular questions we get asked.
What is the difference between an electric wheelchair and a mobility scooter?
Mobility scooters, primarily designed for outdoor use, are equipped with rugged suspensions that can handle many types of terrain. They have a large platform in between the seat and the steering column, which is ideal for those who are tall or need a higher weight capacity. Electric wheelchairs, however, are designed for indoor and outdoor use, so they need to find a balance of not being too bulky for indoor use but capable of going outdoors and travelling on different terrain. Overall, mobility scooters tend to be more compact, lightweight and manoeuvrable.
What are the top speed and distance range of mobility scooters?
With our great range of mobility scooters here at Spring Chicken, the top speed and distance depend on which mobility scooter you're looking at. If you're looking for a lightweight folding mobility scooter or pavement mobility scooter, then the average top speed is 4mph, this is to match the average speed of pedestrians. The distance range on these scooters on a full charge at the very least is 5 miles with most capable of 10 miles. If you would like a larger model of the standard scooter than the class 3 mobility scooters have an average top speed of up to 8mph and a top distance on a full charge of 18 miles.
