One of the great things about living in the Dallas area is the ability to enjoy the outdoors throughout the entire year. While there are always a few cold and rainy days in the winter, and the occasional storm in the summer, being outdoors is a part of everyday life in central Texas.

Getting Around on Powered Scooters

For those with mobility challenges, getting around easily outdoors can be a problem that limits their ability to enjoy life fully. To add to freedom and mobility, choosing a powered scooter provides a small, compact, maneuverable, and extremely safe way to get around the house, yard, or even the community.

Different options in powered scooter models are easy to take with you when you travel. They are lightweight and fold to easily fit into the truck of most cars and the cargo area of trucks and SUVs. Larger, heavier scooters are ideal for a wide variety of terrains and offer additional weight capacity, baskets and accessories, and high stability for travel on any surface.

When choosing a power scooter from any medical supply store in Dallas, there are several factors to keep in mind, including:

  • Range – all scooters run on batteries. Different makes and models have different range limitations based on a standard charge and use on level ground.
  • Weight capacity – as with all types of medical equipment, it is important to consider the maximum weight capacity of any scooter model.
  • Comfort – different seat styles and design features make one model of scooter more comfortable than another. Whenever possible, try out a scooter at the store before determining if it is the right scooter for your needs.

Scooters can be equipped with lights, mirrors, extra baskets, cupholders, and a range of other features.
