3 Reasons to Buy a Motorized Scooter

Trust the Temple, TX mobility experts


Motorized scooters are lightweight alternatives to motorized wheelchairs. There are a few key differences between the two. Here are three of the most common reasons people choose a scooter over a wheelchair:

  1. They’re less expensive. Motorized scooters typically cost thousands of dollars less than motorized wheelchairs.
  2. They’re faster. Motorized scooters can usually get up to around 6 to 10 mph, whereas most electric wheelchairs fall in the 4 to 8 mph range.
  3. They’re a better choice for low mobility issues. If you have a hard time getting around but don’t yet need a wheelchair, a motorized scooter is probably the best option for you.
