Disability scooter is a mobility aid resembling a wheelchair but built like a motor scooter. It is usually known as an electric scooter or power-operated mobility scooter.
A disability scooter has a seat over two rear wheels, handlebars in front to turn steerable wheels and a flat area to place the feet. This device is generally powered by a battery stored on board the scooter and charged via an onboard or separate battery charger.
Although this device does not need much manual strength as using a manual wheelchair, the tiller steering mechanism requires shoulder and hand strength and a little upper body mobility and strength.
A disability scooter is ideal for people with precise or whole-body disabling conditions such as some form of arthritis, obesity, coronary or lung issues but still able to stand and walk a few steps, control the steering tiller and sit straight without body support.
