is the difference between a scooter and a power wheelchair and how do I know which is right for me?
Mobility Scooters are designed primarily for outdoor use and have handle bars and a tiller for steering. Power chairs are designed for both indoor and outdoor use and are steered with one hand using a joystick. Power chairs are very maneuverable and easy to use inside the home. For more information on the differences between power chair and power scooters please refer to our arfticle How to Choose the Right Mobility Device. If you've decided on a power chair, you should also read our article How to Choose the Right Motorized Wheelchair.
