How to Choose a Mobility Scooter
Mobility scooters are known by a variety of names including electric scooters, battery scooters, disability scooters and gophers. They are an increasingly popular method of transport for those with limited mobility wishing to remain independent in their local community.
Compared to a car they are very economical to run, easy to manage and drive also very safe. So when someone no longer feels comfortable driving a car you now have a great option for getting out and about and keeping your independence.
No licence or registration is currently needed in NSW, however we recommend you discuss with your doctor or health professional your ability to manage a mobility scooter before any purchase. Under Australian Roads Rules, mobility scooters are classed as a motorised pedestrian with a maximum allowable top speed of 10km/hr.
When deciding to purchase a mobility scooter there are many factors to consider to ensure the best choice for your needs. At Active Mobility Systems we have over 30 years experience in providing quality advice to customers when selecting a scooter. We strongly recommend trialling any scooter in your home environment before purchase to ensure the optimal scooter for your needs is purchased.
