The freedom to go anywhere at any moment is an unparalleled boost for people’s confidence and self-esteem if they suffer from mobility issues.

It’s something that many of us take for granted, but even if it’s just to post a letter in the post-box down the road, to have a coffee with a friend in a café, or having the ability to visit the homes of your loved ones, you can’t put a price on simple things like those.

Luckily, many shops and suppliers sell mobility scooters and they can range from fairly basic and affordable to top quality, life-changing pieces of technology. This does invariably affect the price you’ll pay.

Aside from reading reviews online, make sure you chat in-store to specialists and specific mobility scooter experts at a supplier near you, even trying one out before you commit to buying. For such a personal piece of technology, it’s essential you find the right one for you.

Mobility scooters with 3 wheels are excellent for those who want an easy-to-use, reliable vehicle. They are designed to add simplicity to your movement by being extra manoeuvrable and safe.

Mobility scooters with 3 wheels are considered to be ideal for elderly people or those afflicted with mobility problems as they are generally lighter than mobility scooters with 4 wheels, and are better at negotiating tight turns and going through narrow spaces.

They usually have two speed settings for pavement or road use, have lights as standard, and a flashing yellow beacon for use on dual carriageway roads where permitted. Some may include useful accessories such as shopping baskets, but this is an option you can consider when choosing.

Three-wheeled mobility scooters are normally powered by an on-board rechargeable battery and configured with a step through frame, meaning that there are no doors or sides to negotiate – perfect for people who struggle to use their joints.

Overall, it is a better option than a wheelchair and an excellent piece of equipment to consider in order to support your lifestyle in a number of different areas, positively impacting on your overall health and mental well-being.
