Four Top Reasons to Choose a 4-Wheel Mobility Scooter

Four Top Reasons to Choose a 4-Wheel Mobility Scooter

Now that you've made the decision to buy a motorized scooter, you need to choose the right type for your individual needs. One option that seems to suit a number of people is a 4-wheel scooter. And, for those who require a portable mobility solution, a compact, four-wheel scooter that easily disassembles, may be an even better choice.

What Are the Benefits of a 4 Wheel Travel Scooter?

People purchase mobility scooters for many different reasons. Four top reasons for choosing a 4-wheel portable scooter are listed below.

  1. Enhanced Stability for Safer Outdoor Use — The broad configuration of a 4-wheel motorized scooter adds stability, making it safer for driving over outdoor terrain. This comes in handy with a travel scooter, allowing it to be driven across a wider variety of surface areas where additional balance might be necessary.
  2. Larger Wheel Base for an Improved Ride — The wider front wheel base and broader chassis frame of a 4-wheel scooter, as compared to some 3-wheel models, can benefit taller and/or heavier persons by evenly distributing weight over the front and rear sections. For some, this helps to improve the experience of renewed mobility.
  3. Adjustable Seating Options for Added Comfort — Some 4-wheel travel scooters feature height adjustable seats, adjustable arm rests and adjustable steering tillers. These adaptable seating systems add to the comfort of the individual user.
  4. Tool-Free Disassembly for Easier Transport — Travel scooters are built for convenient transport and storage. There are some scooters, like the Phoenix 4-wheel Heavy Duty that disassemble into smaller parts for easy loading into a car, truck or van. The pieces just as easily reassemble without any tools. Talk about convenience!
