Mobility Scooters

Mobility Scooters
A mobility scooter serves the same function as an electric wheelchair, but is styled a bit differently. While the wheelchair is typically designed as a chair with footrests, armrests and a joystick, the scooter has a floor and a steering column. A mobility scooter requires the user to be able to use both hands for steering, and to have good balance. The scooter is most beneficial for those who can stand and sit upright without support, and even walk a few steps on their own.

Do People Prefer 3 Wheel or 4 Wheel Mobility Scooters?
For people who struggle to get around, mobility scooters allow them the freedom and independence to navigate the house and their community. There are many different models and feature options on mobility products, including a design of either 3 or 4 wheels. While so many of the varying details on the scooters boil down to personal preference, is there an overwhelming preference for either 3 or 4 wheels? Which should you choose?


3 Wheel Scooters
Mobility scooters with a 3 wheel base are typically intended for indoor use. Scooter brands such as ATTO manufacture lightweight and foldable scooters that are not too heavy and do not take up too much space. Because they are not heavy and the weight is not distributed evenly across the front, these 3 wheel scooters are not intended for outdoor use on rough terrain. Therefore, they are ideal for those who intend to use the scooter only in their homes.

The scooters with 3 wheels are also lauded for their tight turning radius. The EV Rider Transport boasts a 31 inch turning radius, which allows it to maneuver tight corners and easily back in and out of areas to reduce your physical exertion. This is especially important for people in homes with many walls and rooms.

Finally, the 3 wheel scooters are well-liked by people who are tall and require additional leg room. The placement on the third wheel on the front of the scooters, such as those manufactured by ATTO and EV Rider, affords the rider leg room on either side of the steering column, whereas a setup with two wheels in the front may take up some of the space where the legs naturally rest at the front corners of the scooter.


4 Wheel Scooters
If the scooter is going to be used mainly outdoors, a 4 wheel base will be the best fit. Scooters such as the Afikim Afiscooter Breeze S have a very heavy, stable base and can ride over rough or uneven terrain. This model and other similar scooters also feature front and rear suspension, making for an even smoother and safer ride outdoors.

Because the 4 wheel scooters are meant for outdoor use, they tend to be more roomy and comfortable. The E-Wheels EW-74 scooter has a tall captain's chair with arm rests, in addition to a wider base and plenty of storage. This is an ideal feature for someone who spends a lot of time using the chair.

Lastly, 4 wheel scooters are essential for those requiring a higher weight limit. Due to the solid, heavy build and wider frames, brands such as Afikim and E-Wheels can offer a safe ride to customers weighing up to 400 or 500 pounds. This makes the 4 wheel base essential for riders who exceed the weight limits on the 3 wheel models.


There are features to love in both 3 and 4 wheel mobility products. Each style can be the preferred product for users depending on their personal needs and preferences.

There are several design options available for the motorized scooters. They can be broken into three main categories: portable scooters, outdoor scooters, and heavy duty scooters.
  • Portable Scooters
    The most lightweight and compact of the electric scooters, portable scooters are specifically designed to be folded and transported. Because of this, the body of the scooter is smaller and significantly less heavy than other styles, and is most ideal for use in areas with smooth surfaces. The portable scooter tends to have a very tight turning radius, which coupled with the lightweight design makes it ideal for indoor use.

    The speed for the portable scooter tends to be slower than the outdoor and heavy duty models. The seat design on this scooter, while varied with different models, is often smaller and lacking armrests in order to promote easier folding. This scooter style also has a low weight limit for its riders, so it is important to review all of the specifications prior to purchase. E-Wheels and ATTO both manufacture several different styles of foldable scooters, with a variety of seat and design options. The ATTO scooters are the most compact, essentially folding into a wheeled suitcase with a handle for maximum ease of transport.
